Accrington v Albion betting preview

Albion head to League Two Accrington Stanley in the second round of Carabao Cup this evening (ko 7.45pm). Over to official betting partner Coral for the their preview of the Wham Stadium clash…

After their 100 per cent start to the season, Albion are short favourites to beat their League Two opponents. But there are ways to improve on the 1/2 available for the Away Win

Both the Club’s Premier League matches have gone Under 2.5 Goals too – on offer at 20/23 – so the value is doubling up the WBA Win & Under 2.5 Goals at 29/20. 

It should be pointed out that Accrington Stanley’s four matches have all gone Over 2.5 Goals, with one going Over 3.5 and two Over 4.5. So you might want to allow yourself an extra goal allowance and take the WBA Win & Over 3.5 Goals, which still pays an odds against 6/5.

The Baggies have looked pretty solid this season, so the Win To Nil should be on your radar. You’ll get 29/20.

Or for a more satisfying payout, you might prefer to cover a couple of Correct Scores. A third 1-0 in a row is on offer at 11/2, 2-0 pays 6/1 and 3-0 can be backed at 10/1.
