West Ham United vs. West Bromwich Albion Betting Preview – EPL, January 19, 2021

English Premier League games are coming thick and fast at the moment. Tuesday sees West Ham welcome West Brom to the London Stadium in east London – and hoping to continue a fine run of form.

But the Baggies’ confidence will be sky high after the Black Country derby victory over Wolves on Saturday.

West Brom might have beaten its local rivals at the weekend, but BetOnline doesn’t see that result as a glimpse into the future for Sam Allardyce’s men. West Ham has looked particularly solid recently, and the odds on price for the home win is certainly justified for this fixture.

West Ham United vs. West Bromwich Albion Match Analysis

West Ham overcame a stubborn Burnley at the weekend and moved up to ninth in the table after recording its fourth straight game in the EPL without a loss. Even better news for the Hammers was the return of Michail Antonio upfront. He scored the winner and continues to be the most dangerous player on the team.

That fixture against Burnley was the first time that Jarod Bowen and Said Benrahma had started a league game alongside Antonio – and there was a feeling that the trio could cause a lot of problems for opposing defenses as the season goes on. West Brom might be the next team to find that out.

But the Baggies will feel that anything is possible now, after the win against Wolves. It might have needed two penalties to beat its Black Country rivals, but the club’s second victory of the season took the club into double digits – although it didn’t improve its league position at all.

Sam Allardyce will be very happy with himself, although he would surely have loved to have led West Brom to a win a Molineux that was full of fans. Now he will know that his West Brom needs to put together a good run of results, rather than isolated victories if it is to stay up this year.

If Michail Antonio can stay injury-free for the rest of the season, West Ham might have an outside chance of a European place. But the addition of another striker in the January transfer window would definitely help as well. All that will come too late for this game, but West Ham should make it five games unbeaten against West Brom on Tuesday.
