Preston North End are at Deepdale Stadium for this weekend’s league meeting against West Bromwich Albion. Preston have failed to amass a win since the season opener and their wretched form sees them rooted to the bottom of the standings. West Brom, however, have excelled on their Championship return and they are just one point adrift of league leaders Leeds United. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Preston failed to win for the eighth league game on the trot, as they were downed 3-2 on the road to Sheffield United. Alex Neil’s side have attained just two draws at home in their winless run.
West Brom secured their second straight win last weekend as they beat struggling Millwall by a 2-0 scoreline. They are now unbeaten for the last four matches with three victories and one draw.
Preston’s last encounter against West Brom was at the Hawthorns in 2010 which ended in a 3-1 defeat for them. The previous meeting at Deepdale in 2009 saw a goalless stalemate. Our betting tips and predictions expect an away win.

Preston are given a price of 3.25 for the win but this appears an unlikely outcome given their form during the early stages of the campaign. Preston have gone eight games on the stretch without tasting success and this should clearly put the visitors in the front foot. West Brom have got their mojo back with successive wins and we are backing them to end their 48-year wait for an away win over Preston. Our preview anticipates a win for West Brom.

Correct Score odds
Preston have fared well in the goalscoring department this term but that has not paid dividends with just one point resulting from the previous five matches. On the contrary, West Brom have been picking up the results with 10 points in the same period and they are also the league’s top scorers with an average of nearly 2.5 goals per game. Preston will certainly test the Baggies with their impressive streak of scoring at home but the visitors should have the edge. Our correct score prediction fancies a West Brom 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Preston have failed to keep a clean sheet at home since the season opener and this has resulted in more than three goals in the games which have followed. As West Brom top the league’s goal scoring charts, we can anticipate another high-scoring contest. Our total goals prediction expects over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
On-loan striker Dwight Gayle has been the pick of the scorers for West Brom of late and he has netted four times in the previous five matches. Among those, he has opened the scoring on two occasions and he should relish taking on the Preston backline, which has leaked two goals in each of their previous five games. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Gayle.
