Albion v Man City betting preview

The Baggies welcome Premier League leaders Manchester City to The Hawthorns in the Carabao Cup this evening. Over to official betting partner Coral for their match preview…

City’s free-scoring start to the season has prompted Coral to quote a huge 17/2 for an Albion win. But we can expect changes to both line-ups for the Carabao Cup campaign, which means there is some big value in all markets to cash in on… 

The Double Chance market is usually so massively odds-on that it is not worth thinking about, but for the City match you’ll get 11/5 covering the West Brom Win or the Draw.

And that’s only the start…

City needed late, late goals to get past Bournemouth and to pinch a draw at home to Everton. So with extra-time and penalties a possibility, the 90-minute Draw looks overpriced at 4/1. 

If Albion can win in normal time, we can do even better than the 8/1 Home Win odds… Taking the WBA Win & Under 3.5 Goals market pushes the price up to 11/1. And you can squeeze it up to 20/1 by choosing the WBA Win & Under 2.5 Goals.  

In reality, the Under 2.5 option means a 1-0 or 2-0 winning score line. So you might even prefer to take the 25/1 and – wait for it… 60/1 on offer in the respective Correct Score markets.
