Albion v Derby betting preview

Official betting partner assess FA Cup tie odds

Albion get their FA Cup campaign underway by hosting Sky Bet Championship outfit Derby County. Let’s see where the money is going according to official betting partner Coral…

Coral recommend you go for the Home Win on this match. The Baggies have won four of the last six at home, only dropping points to Manchester City and Manchester United. Derby have been in good form on the road in the Championship, but have taken only one point from their last two matches. You’ll only get 4/5 on the home win.

Over 2.5 Goals looks solid too. Five of WBA’s last six at home and three of Derby’s last five away have gone ‘over’. Coral offer 6/5.

If you double the two bets up and back WBA Win & Over 2.5 Goals the odds go up to 9/4. A bet that has delivered the goods in seven of the eight wins this season. 

The WBA Win & Both Teams to Score has also paid out in five of those eight and will push the price up to 10/3.

It’s worth noting that the Baggies’ last three home wins have all ended in a 3-1 scoreline. Another here is on offer at 16/1 in the Correct Score market.

Derby lost 0-3 at the weekend and by the same scoreline when they faced Premier League Liverpool in the EFL Cup. A repeat pays 14/1.
