Just one football tip this evening as West Brom and Aston Villa meet in a local derby.
West Brom vs. Aston Villa – (7.45pm)
Apologies for the late preview! I enjoyed yesterday even though it was nothing ground breaking. A 2/2 day is always nice, especially when both won pretty comfortably in the end. Today I am amazed at the drift on the West Brom price here. I took 2.02 last week expecting it to end up shorter near kick off. Instead it has gone the other way and is an absolute stand out bet for me.
West Brom have impressed me this season. Drawing with Arsenal and Chelsea, and beating Man United shows they are improving under Clarke. A big mistake by Sunderland was letting go of Sessegnon. A key player they’ve given to the Baggies and he has been impressive thus far.
Villa have failed to kick on from their 3-1 win (fortunate 3-1 win might I add) at Arsenal on the opening day. Take an in form Benteke out of the side and they are far less threatening. In fact, before their 2-0 win over Cardiff, they hadn’t scored in for matches. Sure they’ll have added motivation due to the fact this is a midlands derby, but not enough to suggest WBA have less than a 50% chance of three points. Smashing value!
