Bet on Ipswich vs West Brom – Reeling Ipswich set for more woe
Roberto Di Matteo will be relishing the trip to Ipswich after watching his West Bromwich Albion side thump Everton 4-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Despite Ipswich starting the season strongly, Roy Keane now finds his position under pressure after four straight losses, including a 4-1 hammering by local rivals Norwich on Saturday, and his side are 11/4 to beat West Brom.
Ipswich’s chances of beating West Brom weren’t made any easier when goalkeeper Martin Fulop limped off with an ankle injury in the defeat to Norwich on Saturday.
Fulop joins a long list of Ipswich absentees and the Suffolk club have it all to do if they are to beat a West Brom side that seem to have emerged from their five match blip with victory at Everton on Saturday.
West Brom have lost just once on their last four trips to Portman Road and Di Matteo’s side are 1/1 to beat Roy Keane’s Tractor Boys.
Since the League Cup was founded in 1960, Ipswich have only beaten three teams that were from a higher division.
Ipswich have kept just one clean sheet in their last 13 League Cup appearances and West Brom have scored eight times in their three League Cup games, suggesting Roy Keane’s men could be in for consecutive heavy defeats.
But West Brom have only kept clean sheets against teams from League One or lower in their last 17 games and a 3-1 win for West Brom is priced at 14/1, while over 2.5 goals is priced at 9/10.
Chris Brunt is West Brom’s in form player and the Scottish playmaker is 5/2 to score any time.
Ipswich will be reliant on David Norris and Jason Scotland scoring the goals to keep them in the game and both are priced at 3/1 and 9/4 to score any time respectively.
A £10 stake on Brunt scoring first and West Brom winning 4-1 would return £1510. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
