Reason For Preston North End vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Tips

West Brom continue to push for promotion, having lost just once in their last 18 matches. The Baggies come into this one aiming to add to one of the strongest away records in the division this term. They have the best points per game record from their away matches in the Championship, but can they add to that in this visit to the side with the best home record?

Preston are surprise contenders for a place in the Premier League, although back-to-back defeats have set them back. The hosts will hope returning home will inspire them to get back to winning ways, as they look to build on a run of three wins in four matches here. Having gone unbeaten at their own ground all season, the hosts are aiming for another victory.

However, the Baggies are making huge strides under Slaven Bilic. West Brom have earned 39 points from their opening 18 Championship games this season – considering three points for a win, only in 1953-54 (41 points in the top-flight) and 1901-02 (42 points in the second tier) have the Baggies won more points at this stage of a campaign across the top four tiers of English Football. Can they add to that great record when they meet Preston this week?

Both of these sides have built their promotion bids off the back of fine attacking form. The hosts are coming off back-to-back blanks, which have highlighted their low-scoring away form. However, at home – where they have claimed 74% of their points – Preston have scored 25 goals (81% of their season total). They’ve found great success in a number of ways. Preston have scored 14 goals from set-pieces in the Championship this season, including four of their last six – more than any other side in the division.

Meanwhile, West Brom are the only side in the league who have scored more goals than Preston this term. The Baggies have hit 35 goals already this campaign, finding the net in 94% of their league games so far. With West Brom claiming the majority of their points on the road, we see them scoring on Monday against a Preston side who have seen both teams score in 78% of their home games.

We expect more goals between these two sides on Monday, with BTTS our pick for this clash. While West Brom’s away defensive record is good, they’ve shipped goals at all of the top four sides, so they should concede at the team with the best home record. West Brom have lost only once on the road this term, while their eight-game unbeaten run prompts us to back a 1-1 draw here.
