Albion v Middlesbrough betting preview

26 August 2016

Latest odds from Coral ahead of Premier League clash

ALBION welcome in-form Middlesbrough to The Hawthorns looking to make it two wins from their opening three Premier League matches. 

Our betting partner Coral has a wide range of markets to check out ahead of the match…

Tony Pulis’ side face a difficult task against a Boro outfit who have themselves enjoyed a decent start to the season, with four points from their opening two games. 

Albion are well organised under Pulis’ stewardship, however, and Premier League experience may prove the deciding factor here – at 8/5, the hosts represent decent value. 

If you fancy the Baggies at a bigger price, take a look at them to win and Under 2.5 Goals in the Match at 17/5. There have been fewer than 2.5 goals in each of the Baggies’ last three matches against promoted teams, and both managers will be keen to pick up maximum points.

Set-pieces continue to be a useful source of goals for Albion, particularly with Gareth McAuley in your side. The Northern Ireland man is renowned for his ability in the air and has scored two headers in his last two matches. You can back him to score anytime at 15/2.
