West Brom 5/6 to beat Swansea and over 1.5 goals in Sunday’s Championship showdown

Competition: Championship

Market: West Brom win and over 1.5 goals

Odds: 5/6 @ Bet 365

Enjoying what has been an outstanding run of form heading into December, West Brom will welcome Swansea to the Hawthorns on Sunday lunchtime.

Starting with the hosts, while West Brom may have left it extremely late to snatch a 1-0 win away at play-off contenders Preston last time out, few would have expected the Baggies’ resurge under Slaven Bilić. Opening the weekend with a two-point buffer over Leeds and with a Premier League return firmly on their agenda, the former West Ham boss finds his side enjoying a five-match winning run. Even more impressive, fans around the Hawthorns have seen their side lose just a single Championship matchup this season, the joint-best record held by any side across England’s footballing tiers. With the mood around the Midlands continuing to soar, the Baggies should be confident of extending their winning run this weekend.

As for the visitors, while Swansea may have shocked many by opening the new Championship campaign with a stellar run of form, the Welsh outfit have since come crashing back down to earth. Losing their play-off status after suffering a 2-1 defeat at home against Fulham last week, Head Coach Steve Cooper has seen his side fail to win any of their last four appearances and gain a reputation for their struggles at the back. The Whites have recorded just a single clean sheet in any of their last 12 outings, a run that stems all the way back to the 21st of September. Two sides who find the mood in their camps at a polar opposite, we’re backing West Brom to extend their winning run this weekend.
