West Brom v Swansea: Surprise packages to play out score draw

| 08.03.2013

At the beginning of the season, few would have expected a West Brom versus Swansea clash to be an all top-half fixture 10 games from the campaign’s end.

But that has proved to be the case, and with it difficult to separate the two aesthetically pleasing passing outfits, the 12/5 draw looks the wisest investment in match betting markets.

A glance at the league table shows symmetry between the points tallies of the Baggies and Swans, whilst they also possess near-identical attacking and defensive records.

As such, the score draw appears to have every chance of coming to fruition as a 31/10 shot.

The hosts are 6/5 to triumph, in the aftermath of an away defeat to Chelsea proving to be their first loss in three outings.

And Swansea are 11/5 to succeed, after managing to avoid a Capital One Cup final hangover by beating Newcastle 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium last time out.

The likes of Romelu Lukaku and Michu should ensure a significant amount of goals sprout from a game which has the potential to be a Match of the Day show-stealer meanwhile.

A stalemate involving at least 2.5 strikes appears to have real chances, whilst correct score punters should note that between them, this pair have drawn four games 2-2 this season.

14/1 is attributed to the possibility of that outcome again, which may see support, especially in light of four goals coming out of the reverse fixture earlier this term.

As an alternative, the 11/5 that at least 3.5 goals are registered in the match looks to have solid credentials.

The aforementioned Lukaku and Michu are certain to prove popular in player markets meanwhile, with the former 9/2 favourite to break the deadlock after three goals in his last two matches.

19-goal Michu looks huge at 6/1 to open the scoring for the visitors though, as the Spaniard looks to build on the three goals he has hit in his last three games across all competitions.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
