West Brom vs Burnley
English Premier League
Date: 31st March 2018, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich).
Alan Pardew and West Brom are about to get axed from the Premier League if they don’t pick wins in majority of the remaining 7 games. The Baggies are at the rock bottom in league table, 10 points below safety. They must at least win in 5 of the remaining 7 to avoid relegation to the Championship.
The current form of West Brom is the first so far in the 2017/18 season as the team is on a 7 match losing streak. Moreover the team managed just 3 wins all season, 2 of those came at the start of the campaign.
Burnley could have been sitting inside the Europa League zone if not for a poor run in 2018. It took them until March to bag the first win of the year, defeating Everton and West Ham in back-to-back games to end a barren run of 11 games. Still, Clarets at 7th on the log are only 5 points behind Arsenal.
The recent away form do not look good on Burnley, owe to a poor overall run in 2018. Yet, this is a team that picked points from Wembley, Old Trafford, Anfield and Stamford Bridge.

West Brom vs Burnley: Prediction
The form guide heavily favors Burnley, but West Brom are unbeaten in the h2h clashes at home since 2000. Yet, backing the home team is a risky proportion, so do banking on the outright away win.
In the case of West Brom, seven defeats on the bounce is more than enough to shatter the morale and confidence of any team. Therefore, the safe option for me is a double chance on draw or away win.
Meantime, value seekers can bank of high number of goals in this match as Pardew’s men have no option but to go for the winner. Still, Burnley are smart enough to give lusty blow on the counter.
