Betting Tips for the game
Leeds United failed to make the chances count in the recent game against QPR and they ended up losing 1-0 at Loftus Road. This defeat ended a sequence of three unbeaten matches for Leeds.
West Brom were unable to score at the Hawthorns for the first time this season as they slipped to a 1-0 defeat against promotion rivals Sheffield United last weekend. This was the first defeat for Darren Moore’s team in five games.
The recent match between these two promotion rivals produced an emphatic 4-1 victory for West Brom at the Hawthorns back in November. Meanwhile, West Brom were able to register a 3-2 victory over Leeds in the last meeting at the Elland Road. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

West Brom step into the match with a decent offensive tally but they were unable to pick up the opportunities in the recent match against Sheffield United. Leeds also faced a similar problem after a strong first half performance against QPR. Both clubs have a lot to lose in this match with West Brom’s position especially tricky due to the form of teams like Middlesbrough. The Baggies cannot afford to drop more points behind Leeds and the automatic promotion spots. This may force West Brom, who have lost once in the recent 10 away games, to play at a stalemate. Our preview would pick a win for West Brom.

Leeds United win odds: 2.25
West Brom win odds: 3.40
Correct Score odds
There have been a decent return of goals for both Leeds United and West Brom over the last six matches, but the recent game for both clubs was quite a disappointment considering that they did not take most of the chances coming their way. Still, our correct score prediction would pick a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been more than 2.5 goals in the last four games between West Brom and Leeds, but this is only the second meeting between the two teams in the last decade. There is undoubtedly good offensive potential between both teams, but the importance of this match may result in a defensive fear for both. Our total goals prediction would be under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jay Rodriguez has been disappointing in the last two matches while Dwight Gayle has been comparatively better – even if he has been unable to score in these two games. The latter was able to come up with a goal in the reverse fixture against Leeds United. After having watched West Brom open the scoring in four out of the last five away league games, our first goalscorer prediction would pick Dwight Gayle.
