Bitesize Prediction: West Brom vs Fulham – 15/03/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Fulham win

Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport

Hoping to make an immediate return to winning ways on Tuesday night, Fulham will make the trip to a downbeat West Brom smelling a golden chance.

Starting with the hosts, while West Brom might have made the decision to bring in Steve Bruce last month, the Baggies are in the midst of a Championship nightmare. Although the former Newcastle boss might have seen his side mount a stunning late rally at home against Huddersfield over the weekend, they have continued to freefall their way down the table. Despite many tipping them to make an immediate Premier League return this season, the Midlands outfit need a real miracle if they’re to clinch a play-off spot. Knowing that they face a huge task at the Hawthorns in midweek, it should be noted that Bruce’s men have remarkably managed to win just one of their previous nine matchups across all formats, a run that stems all the way back to January 22nd.

As for the visitors, although Fulham might have had to settle for a late point away at relegation scrappers Barnsley over the weekend, Marco Silva’s men should find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Continuing to impress everyone across the Championship this season, the former Everton boss finds his side holding a commanding 12-point buffer at the top of the table. Appearing to cruise their way towards an immediate Premier League return this season, the west London outfit have remarkably lost just a single second-tier outing since December 20th. With attacking talisman Aleksandar Mitrović only continuing to break a host of records this season, they should also be boosted by their most recent meeting against the Baggies. Storming their way to a 3-0 romp in the reverse meeting, we’re backing a similar away win.
