West Brom vs Leicester predictions and top betting tips
Table-toppers Leicester City travels the short distance to The Hawthorns to face in-form West Brom in another match from the Championship. West Brom has lost just one of their previous seven matches, winning five of those while Leicester has won just one of their previous four matches, dropping points to Leeds United, Middlesbrough, and Sheffield Wednesday.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that both teams will find the back of the net. Leicester City boasts players such as Jamie Vardy, Patson Daka, and Stephy Mavididi while West Brom has Grady Diangana, Brandon Thomas-Asante, and Jeremy Sarmiento. Leicester City does not concede many goals having conceded just eleven times in eighteen matches this season but they are facing an in-form West Brom, at West Brom's ground so we would be very surprised if both teams fail to score.
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that the total number of goals in this match will be 2.5 or less. Five of West Brom's previous seven matches and five of Leicester's previous six matches have seen 2.5 goals or less scored with West Brom's home record seeing the baggies concede just seven times in nine home matches, with sixteen goals scored while Leicester City when travelling away from home are scoring just over two goals per match but we can not see that happening this time round. In the previous six matches, no team has picked up more points than West Brom has and no team has also conceded fewer goals than West Brom has. Leicester will struggle to break this determined Albion side down and that will show with this prediction.
Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw
For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that this match will finish with a 1-1 draw being played out. Leicester City sits tenth in the Championship form table based on the previous six matches and is traveling away from the side that sits top of the form table. With this also being a local rivalry, expect a tight affair with both teams not wanting to lose this encounter against their local rivals. Leicester City will be wanting to pick up their form and avoid making it one win in five matches but they face a West Brom side who are in exceptional form and will be hard for any team to beat this season.
