West Brom will be hosting Newcastle this week in a match which should be closely contested. Both teams have had a poor season so far and they will both want to win here to turn their campaigns around heading into the New Year. This game will be important in the relegation battle and I am expecting both teams to give it their all.
West Brom are coming off a loss to Swansea and they will feel disappointed that they lost that game since that put them in striking distance of the drop zone. The Hawhorns will want their team to bounce back strong and I expect that this game since the home crowd has a big impact on this side. This team will need to work together in this match since they lack star power so they will need to use teamwork to win here.
Newcastle on the other hand have a lot of match winners and they will look to them in this match. This game could get Newcastle out of the relegation zone and that is going to be moral victory for the Magpies since they starting this season very poorly. That being said they have bounced back well and I like their chances going into this match. This team is poor defensively but I think they are good enough upfront to win here.
Newcastle should win here and I think that betting on the outright result is the best option. We are getting a good price and I think that it is safe enough. This is going to be a close game so handicaps are out and the goal line is a risky option but if you want to go that way, taking the over 2.5 goals is the better option. This game has a lot of value so I will be betting on it for sure.
