West Brom vs Crystal Palace predictions and League Cup betting tips for this Tuesday night fixture in the EFL Cup. Albion have started their Championship season well and will certainly fancy their chances of an upset when Crystal Palace visit.
As is the norm with this competition, both teams are likely to make some changes to their teams, but especially Crystal Palace. In the last round when they played Swansea, Roy Hodgson made a number of changes and they still escaped South Wales with a 1-0 victory. It was Alexander Sorloth who got the crucial goal that evening and he’s liekly to replace Wilfried Zaha up front. West Brom are unbeaten in five matches now and have only lost once in their last 10 matches. For our betting tips on this match, we’re certainly tempted to back the upset and go with a West Brom victory, if you want a safer bet, you could use the draw no bet market to bet on West Brom at 11/10 with Paddy Power – this means you get a refund if the match ends a draw.
Our tipster is predicting a close match here but we could still see some goals. West Brom are scoring plenty of late and it is also worth noting that both teams to score bets have won in four of their last five fixtures. Dwight Gayle has been the main goalscoring threat for West Brom this season but we’re backing his strike partner to score against Palace, if he starts the match. Jay Rodriguez scored twice in the recent win against Bristol City and has already netted six times in the Sky Bet Championship this season. He also has a League Cup goal to his name so he’s the anytime goalscorer tip for our West Brom vs Crystal Palace predictions.
West Brom have been involved in some high scoring matches already this season, including a 7-1 win over QPR, a 4-3 victory against Norwich and 4-2 win against Bristol City. Based on these matches we’re taking a chance and betting on goals being scored for the last of the football predictions here. The Crystal Palace matches this season have generally being low scoring but because of the changes being made, and West Brom’s desire to attack teams, we think this match could go against the Crystal Palace stats and goals will be scored. Over 2.5 goals is the bet to complete today’s football betting tips for this League Cup fixture.
West Brom to win – 19/10
Draw – 5/2
Crystal Palace to win – 31/20
There is every chance of an upset in this match and it would be no surprise at all to see West Brom go into the hat for the next round of the League Cup. Palace have been indifferent this season and look a completely different team without Wilfried Zaha, who is likely to be on the bench for this match. Albion are also likely to rest a couple of players but home advantage might just give them the edge, and that is why one of our match predictions is a home victory.
Dwight Gayle may not start the match but he’s 19/10 with Unibet to score in the game and that is a good bet. You could even have a bet on him in-play if he emerges from the bench in the second half. From a Palace goalscorer point of view, Alexander Sorloth would be the selection at odds of 11/4 with the same firm.
Crystal Palace to win – 15/8 with Betfred.
Jay Rodriguez to score anytime – 2/1 with Betfred.
