West Brom begin their attempts to get back into the Premier League when they host Bolton at the Hawthorns in the opening game. West Brom were able to retain most of the players from last season, while Darren Moore has also been quite prudent in the market. Bolton continue to struggle with a lack of financial solidarity and the club are hoping to avoid yet another relegation battle. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
West Brom had a positive pre-season with the team staying unbeaten in all of the four friendlies, which included games against Aberdeen and Barnsley.
Bolton were quite inconsistent in pre-season but the team did pick up wins over the likes of Peterborough United.
The recent game between these two teams took place in 2012 when West Brom grabbed a 2-2 draw away at Bolton. The last meeting at Hawthorns saw West Brom pick up a 2-1 win. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for West Brom.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]West Brom win at 1.44[/bet_tip_now]
Bolton are at a price of 7.50 for a win in the match. Even at this incredible price, we would not go with the visitors. West Brom are superior in terms of squad strength, momentum, and confidence. Furthermore, the Baggies have home advantage. Even though majority of the past meetings between West Brom and Bolton have been stalemates, this match is about to witness a Bolton team that is substantially lower in strength compared to those past Bolton teams. Our preview would back a win for West Brom.

Correct Score odds
The West Brom squad still contains a number of players who were playing in the Premier League last season. Bolton’s squad feels a cut below in terms of quality. Past meetings between the two teams have been tight games, but West Brom are expected to have a comfortable evening with a 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Bolton outfit were not great when it came to away games last season and things are not expected to be any different this time around – even if they have picked up two away wins in the pre-season friendlies. West Brom will look to begin the new campaign with a solid clean sheet and home form almost helped the club get an unlikely jump away from relegation last season. Our total goals prediction anticipates a game with less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Salomon Rondon is subject to much transfer speculation and it leaves Jay Rodriguez as one of the key players in this West Brom team. The 29-year-old came up with seven goals and an assist last season and he was a crucial player towards the end of the campaign. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Rodriguez.
