West Brom vs Wolves
English Premier League
Date: Monday, 3 May 2021
Kick-Off at 18.00 UK
Venue: The Hawthorns, West Bromwich.
West Brom caught a glimmer of hope a month ago when they picked up a couple of surprising Premier League wins over Chelsea and Southampton, each by a three-goal margin. The Baggies bagged eight goals along the way and they represented a genuine threat to the teams placed just above the safe zone line in the league standings.
Nevertheless, Sam Allardyce’s troops failed to back up such showings, claiming just one point from the following two outings to Leicester City and Aston Villa. They conceded five goals in these two outings and are now once again as many as nine points below the line.
If Big Sam is to keep any hopes of saving this team in the elite tier of English football alive, he just has to take three points from Monday’s clash against Wolves.
The Baggies have fixtures against Arsenal and Liverpool upcoming and this is their last chance to catch up with the rest of the field.

- The Baggies won each of the last three clashes against Wolves. They bagged three goals in a 2-3 victory over Wolves in mid-January this year at Molineux Stadium.
- There were as many as 11 goals scored in the last two H2H games between these two outfits.
West Brom vs Wolves Prediction
We could easily be in for another high-scoring affair when these two likes come across each other once again. Wolves produced the worst defensive performance of the season eight days ago when they suffered a catastrophic 0-4 home loss to the likes of Burnley.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men do not have much but pride to play for in the remaining five matches, but they will clearly be motivated to fix the horrendous impression from the previous round.
Neither of the two sides seem capable of defending their own goal and we just can’t see either keeping a clean sheet here.
Both Teams To Score is a banker bet at attractive 1.90 odds. Since Burnley managed to put four past Wolves last Sunday, we will back the Baggies to bag at least two on Monday. This pick is priced up at the 2.75 odds.
