West Bromwich v Manchester City Betting Tips: Match Preview
West Bromwich started the pre-season a bit clumsy recording two losses, one against Red Bull Salzburg with 1-3 and one against Orlando City with the same score. However the remaining five games were five consecutive wins, where W.B.A scored a total of 14 goals and conceded only 3. Current performance rating of 71% and looking strong for this match.
Last season was not great, where West Bromwich gathered only 44 points, and placed 13th overall 4 teams away from the relegation zone. Weak hosting in the previous season too record W7-D4-L8 scoring 24 goals in those games and conceding 26.
Two new names for the team so far: Serge Gnabry from Arsenal on a loan and Rickie Lambert from Liverpool for 4.3 million euro. Against this opponent West Bromwich has lost all 5 of the last 5 meetings and has an overall record of W6-D4-L17. Last victory came in 2010 in the League Cup with 2-1. Last Premier League victory dates back 2008 a 2-1 victory at home.
The stats reveal a tough opponent for West Bromwich, and despite their good pre-season it might be too much of a challenge to overcome. Bet365.com is giving the team betting odds of 5.75 to win this match and 4.00 to get a point.
Manchester City are one of the favorites to win the Premier League this season. Pre-season games gave us a mixed preview of what the team looked like ranging from demolishing victories with 8-1 to devastating losses with 1-4. Current performance rating for the team also 71%, recording 5 victories and 2 losses in the last 7 games.
West Bromwich hasn’t been a troublesome opponent in the past 5 years, where City managed to record 9 victories and a draw in 10 games. Three goals in each of the last 4 victories, overall of 12, receiving 4 in return.
New names for the team so far are: Raheem Sterling for 69.4 million euro from Liverpool, Enes Unal from Bursaspor for 3 million euro, Fabian Delph from Aston Villa for 11.5 million euro and Patrick Roberts from Fulham for 7.2 million euro.
On paper, Manchester City looks like a definite favourite for this match, but being round 1 and all, we have our reservations. Because of that bet365.com is giving them rather high odds for an away victory @ 1.66 and rising.
While round 1 in Premier League has always hid some unexpected result, Manchester City looks like a solid favourite for this match. Back City to win it @ 1.66 with bet365.
The 12 goals scored from City in the last 4 games, and 4 received in return, make us go for the Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.75 as our second betting choice.
