      West Brom vs Bournemouth Predictions

      West Brom were unlucky to only get a draw against Liverpool last weekend. They came back from a goal behind to lead at Anfield, but were thwarted by a 96th minute equaliser from Divock Origi.

      But it can’t all be blamed on bad luck. West Brom have now only won once in their last six outings in the Premier League and have lost five of their last 11 in all competitions.

      This downturn in form is due to the collapse of their usually solid defence. They were the clean sheet specialists of the Premier League in the opening few weeks, but they now haven’t kept a clean sheet in six matches, conceding ten times during that period.

      West Brom have slipped down to 13th due to their recent poor form, with Bournemouth sitting four points behind them in 14th and one point separating them from 12th place Southampton.

      Bournemouth have managed to break out of their own spell of poor form with two incredibly impressive wins. They first beat the struggling Chelsea at Stamford Bridge before hosting Manchester United in a 2-1 win.

      These two victories have ended a dismal nine match winless streak in the Premier League, and the visitors will certainly be high on confidence after their impressive performances in the last few weeks.

      Bournemouth can’t just rely on these famous wins though. They have only just escaped the relegation zone and know that a bad week could see them back in trouble.

      Bournemouth won the last time they met up with West Brom, with a 2-1 victory in 2014 sending them through in the League Cup. I think they can get another win on Saturday to send them further clear of the drop zone.

      They are away from home though, so I think the best option is a Bournemouth Draw No Bet at excellent value odds of 11/10, along with a 2-1 correct score prediction at 11/1.
