Lee Johnson’s team have done exceedingly well to move into the play-off places and the weekend results were actually a disappointment for Bristol as they could have extended the lead over Derby even further. West Brom’s primary objective will be to preserve momentum going into the play-offs, and a second consecutive defeat will be a major blow for James Shan’s men. On the contrary, West Brom will be glad to return home with an away point. Our preview would pick a draw.

Correct Score odds
Bristol and West Brom almost have an identical record when it comes to scoring and conceding goals over the last six matches. The Ashton Gate Stadium continues to be a stronghold for Bristol, who have failed to score in just one of the last 11 league matches at home. Meanwhile, West Brom have been unable to score in two out of the last three away matches. A good choice would be to back a 1-1 draw, as per our correct score prediction.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bristol’s strong scoring record at the Ashton Gate Stadium is not met with an equal response in terms of clean sheets with Rotherham United and Swansea being the only two outfits failing to score in the last 11 league matches on this ground. Even though West Brom have struggled in recent away matches, our total goals prediction would pick under 2.5 goals even with both teams scoring at least once.

First Goalscorer odds
Famara Diedhiou has now been unable to score in five consecutive games for Bristol. His last goal for Bristol was back in the first week of March when he scored against Preston and his last goal at the Aston Gate Stadium was back in February. Even then, he has come up with some strong performances that lead our first goalscorer prediction to back the 26-year-old.
