West Bromwich Albion entertain Leeds United in the final Championship game before the international break. The Baggies have been in a wretched run of form since mid-October and a winless run has seen them drop outside of the playoff positions. Leeds, meanwhile, are top of the standings with a superior goal difference over Norwich City behind them. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
West Brom went winless for the fourth game on the bounce after suffering a 1-0 defeat on the road to Hull City. Fraizer Campbell netted the only goal in the 38th minute to condemn the Baggies to their third defeat in four matches.
Leeds, meanwhile, extended their unbeaten run to three matches after bagging a 2-1 win at Wigan Athletic. Reece James opened the scoring for Wigan before Leeds sealed the comeback with goals from Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe.
The previous encounter between the sides was at Elland Road in 2007 where West Brom sealed a 3-2 win. Earlier in that year, West Brom entertained Leeds in the FA Cup at the Hawthorns – picking up a 3-1 triumph. Our betting tips and predictions fancy an away win.

West Brom are priced at 2.62 for a home win but we are not fancying this outcome due to their recent run in the Championship. West Brom were pretty much cruising during the opening 12 matches with their impressive attack but they have since gone in a shell with a four-match winless run. In the same period, Leeds have picked up form with a couple of wins and they should come into this game with loads of confidence despite being the away side. Our preview is to go for a Leeds win.

West Brom vs Leeds United draw odds: 3.40
Correct Score odds
West Brom’s attack has been the highlight of the league campaign and they remain as the league’s leading scorers with 33 goals from just 16 matches. However, Leeds are not far off from matching them with 28 goals. Leeds, though, will clearly prevail in terms of defensive record after having conceded just half the number of goals as West Brom. Our correct score prediction fancies a Leeds 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
West Brom’s impressive scoring combined with a vulnerable backline has contributed to high-scoring matches at the Hawthorns. Six of the Baggies’ eight home matches have produced more than two goals and the outcome has been identical in Leeds’ recent outings at Wigan and Blackburn. Our total goals prediction is to go for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Kemar Roofe has been Leeds’ go-to man of late and he has netted a goal in each of his previous three appearances. The 25-year-old has opened the scoring on one occasion in this period and he is surely the one to watch for with his seven goals this term coming from just 11 shots on target. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Roofe.
