After drawing their last encounter in the league with Manchester City, the bottom-dweller West Brom has changed their coaching staff. Sam Allardyce will march West Brom for his maiden trial in the league this season.
Aston Villa has lost three of their recent five fixtures in the campaign as of late. The 0-1 win on the road against the likes of Wolves last time out was their 6th win in the ten league appearances this term until now in their schedule.

West Brom vs Aston Villa Prediction
The new manager for West Brom provides an air of suspense for the opponents in the middle. It is not sure of what tactics the new gaffer will rely on in the league. Besides, the form of the host could go either way in the campaign, and is safer to not bet on winners in the game.
With the full-time win at hold, more favorable tips are available from the goals department. For instance, both teams will need some time to assess each other as an air of uncertainty lurks around the match.
So, we can expect a low-scoring affair with probably both teams finding the back of the net in ninety minutes.
The host has scored only 10 goals in their 13 games so far this season. Meanwhile, Aston Villa has averaged 2.1 goals in the campaign but has slotted in only 9 goals in their 5 outings. Hence, the tip for under 3.5 goals at 1.44 odds will probably be the best bet for the punters, along with BTTS at 1.66 odds in the clash.
