West Bromwich Albion host Stoke City at The Hawthorns in the Championship's only game on Sunday (KO, 12:00).

The home side are in decent form of late, with six wins in their last nine, and they currently reside in the top-six as they pursue promotion back to the Premier League.

Stoke, meanwhile, could be looking at a relegation scrap if they don't buck their ideas up soon, as they are just two points above 22nd-placed QPR. The Potters are still searching for a new manager after the sacking of Alex Neil last week.

West Brom vs Stoke Betting Tips:

  • West Brom and under 3.5 goals @ 5/4
  • West Brom to win to nil @ 13/8

Team News

Matt Phillips, Josh Maja and Daryl Dike remain injured for the hosts, who could name an unchanged starting XI from the one that beat Rotherham United 2-0 on Tuesday.

Interim manager Paul Gallagher may switch things up for the away side, though, after a 1-1 draw with Swansea City in midweek.

Ben Pearson misses out after picking up a 10th yellow card of the campaign against the Swans, which could see Joon-Ho Bae handed an opportunity to impress.

Match Odds

West Brom are 4/5 to win on Saturday, with a victory for the visitors price at 18/5, and the draw available at 13/5.

Both teams to score is 10/11 and it's 4/5 for BTTS - No.

West Brom and under 3.5 goals @ 5/4

Albion have been strong performers at The Hawthorns this season, picking up 20 points from the 30 available to them. They've suffered just two defeats there, with one of them a narrow 2-1 loss to league leaders Leicester City.

Seven of their 10 home games have seen three goals or fewer, including seven of their last eight.

Carlos Corberan and his charges should be confident of victory on Sunday against a managerless Stoke side who are winless in their last seven and have lost four of their last five.

The Potters have been poor on their travels this term, with only four clubs picking up fewer away points than their tally of eight.

West Brom to win to nil @ 13/8

The Baggies have kept five clean sheets at The Hawthorns so far, and they have all come within their last seven games. Their chances of recording a sixth look good given Stoke have only scored 10 away from home and have failed to score in half (5/10) of their road matches.

West Brom have kept out the likes of Ipswich Town and Cardiff City recently, and the Potters certainly pack less of a punch than those two sides.
