West Brom v Leicester Prediction : Visitors backed to ‘leave The Hawthorns with all three points’



Newly-promoted West Brom face a tricky start to life back in the top-flight as they host top-four chasing Leicester later today.

There will be no supporters at The Hawthorns, but that won’t stop the home side from enjoying their first game back in the Premier League since the 2017/18 campaign.

The Baggies won just six games as they finished rock bottom of the table, but boss Slaven Bilic has instilled a new belief in his players, one that saw them clinch second spot in the Championship last season.

Their automatic promotion was a welcome sight for fans of the club, but they now face a huge test in staying in the division. That test begins with a tough meeting against the Foxes.

Leicester sat comfortably in the top four for the majority of the last Premier League campaign, but a huge downward spiral in the final months saw them slip to fifth.

It was a painful blow for Brendan Rodgers and his men, but the Northern Irishman will be eager to put that right from the very start.

West Brom have been given odds of 14/5 to pick up all three points in this season opener.

The visitors can be backed at 19/20, with a draw also available at 13/5.

A home victory and both teams to score is currently 6/1, with a Leicester win and both teams to score available at 3/1.

A draw with both teams finding the net can be backed at 15/4.

But the away side may strongly like their chances of coming away with the points thanks to the presence of Jamie Vardy. The striker finished as the league’s top scorer with 23 goals last season.

He is currently 3/1 to net the first goal of the game.

And Vardy’s team-mates James Maddison and Ayoze Perez are available at 7/1 and 15/2 respectively to score first on Sunday.

But the hosts also have their own secret weapon in Charlie Austin, who has plenty of top-flight experience.

The striker has played with both QPR and Southampton in the Premier League, and is currently 5/2 to score anytime on his return to the division.

Recent permanent recruits Grady Diangana and Matheus Pereira are both currently 12/1 to score first.
