Tip Reasoning

  • There have been at least three goals in five of the last six meetings between these two sides.
  • Blackpool are without a win or clean sheet in their last three matches.
  • West Brom have won half of their home league games this season.

Baggies looking to bounce back

West Bromwich Albion’s play-off hopes are essentially over after a damning 3-1 defeat at home to Stoke City last time out. Manager Steve Bruce stated that there would be a major overhaul this summer and it looks as though it’s more than needed. The ‘Baggies’ last six Championship fixtures have been drawn or lost by the pre-match favourite so a win for the hosts here could be seen as somewhat unexpected. Inconsistency has been a cause for concern for West Brom, as shown by the fact their last seven league fixtures have produced a different win-loss-draw result. They have won exactly half of their home league fixtures this season and they’ll be desperate to take three points against bottom half Blackpool.

In a similar vein, Blackpool boss Neil Critchley put pen to paper on a new long term contract back in November and he’ll want to transform the fortunes of his side next season. A bottom-half finish looks likely for the ‘Tangerines’ and given they have just a single victory from their last 11 Championship away trips, they could be in for a tough time here. However, Blackpool are the only side yet to lose a league away game by two or more goals, highlighting their ability to keep games close.

Bruce’s men to claim victory

We do see this being a close encounter, but we think West Bromwich Albion can earn themselves a victory here against a stuttering Blackpool outfit. We also think there will be at least two goals in the game and so we’ll go with a West Brom win and over 1.5 match goals.
