Wolves vs West Brom – Baggies can dent rivals survival hopes

| 07.05.2011

It doesn’t get much bigger than this for Wolverhampton Wanderer’s fans and victory over their local rivals would go a long way to securing their Premier League status next season.

Except nothing would please West Bromwich Albion fans more than condemning their rivals to relegation and under the guidance of Roy Hodgson the Baggies have become a difficult team to beat.

Match Odds

Wolves may have the home advantage but they have won just won of their last 10 meetings with West Brom and just two of their last nine games with their rivals at Molineux.

Hodgson’s first game in charge was the 1-1 draw with Wolves at the Hawthorns and since then only Chelsea have been able to defeat West Brom and the Baggies look incredible value at 23/10.

Wolves are a lot stronger at home which is why they are the 6/5 favourites and the draw has to be considered at 23/10, but West Brom are flying high in confidence and a win could potentially send them eight.

Total goals

With five goals in six league games, Peter Odemwingie is the man that will down Wolves and the West Brom striker is 5/1 to get the first and possibly only goal.

Only six of the last 25 games involving these two sides have produced over 2.5 goals and under 2.5 goals looks a steal at 1/1.

The 1-1 result has been popular and is available at 11/2 but the 1-0 result has happened seven times in 20 games and we’re tipping West Brom to win 1-0 at 8/1.

If Premier League games finished at half-time then West Brom would be bottom so the other standout value is the draw at half-time/away win at full-time which is priced at 11/2.
