West Brom vs Southampton: Match Preview and Prediction

West Brom vs SouthamptonThe Hawthorns will be buzzing on Friday night when West Brom play Southampton in the 33rd round of the Championship. With a historic home win, the hosts want to secure their postseason spot. After beating Cardiff City 2-0 on Tuesday, the WBA will be optimistic tonight.

West Brom enters this game fresh off five straight league home victories. Southampton lost 1-3 away to Bristol City on Tuesday night, which was a terrible experience. Out of the last six league matches, just one saw three goals or more for WBA.

As of right now, the Baggies have won two and drawn their previous three league games. They also put on a great display last Saturday, stifling fourth-place Ipswich Town to a 2-2 draw away from home. Fifth in the championship standings are Carlos Corberan’s men. They are in seventh place, four points ahead of Hull City.

Southampton lost their automatic promotion chances on Tuesday night. Saints lost 1-3 at Bristol City. The last loss was in September last year. Russell Martin’s squad conceded all three second-half goals at Ashton Gate. They dropped to third in the league, two points behind Leeds United in second.

West Brom vs Southampton: Betting Analysis

The home court advantage has shaped this clash. The WBA has won all three matches against Southampton at home. The Saints won the reverse encounter at St. Mary’s Stadium 2-1 last November. These opponents have scored at least three goals in four of their five H2H matches.

Southampton is now breakable. They allowed three goals in their last two league games. They face a fit opposition on Friday. West Bromwich Albion enters with five league home wins. There was one goal. The Baggies have won 11, drawn 3, and lost 2 of 16 home league games this season. Due to H2H tradition favoring home clubs, we must choose West Brom at 2.90 odds.

West Bromwich Albion are tough to beat this season, especially at The Hawthorns. In their previous six home league games, only one had three or more goals. Southampton likes offensive play under Russell Martin, but we anticipate the hosts will keep the game slow. The under 2.5 goals FT bet at 1.90 odds is our choice.
