Competition: FA Cups
Market: Brighton wins
Odds: 5/4 @ 888sport
Brighton are looking to extend their latest boost away in the Midlands this weekend and Brighton take the trip to West Brom on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, while West Brom could have managed to snatch a point against relegation players Cardiff last weekend, the Baggies have struggled to find their best form with much stability. Unable to return from what was a stunning 1-0 defeat at the bottom of the Derby when he wrote off 2021, the former Barnsley boss has seen his team fail to win any of their last three championships. Now that they are losing consecutive points against Cardiff, Derby and Barnsley, it should also be noted that Saturday’s hosts have only won a couple of their last nine matchups, a race dating back to 3 November. West Brom, who now appear as a real choice from the outside to win an automatic Premier League return this year, could be part of yet another tough test in the Midlands this weekend.
As for the guests who managed to open the new year with what was an action-packed 3-2 away win against Everton, there is no doubt that the mood in Brighton’s camp should be at its peak. After finding a way to build on an eye-catching 1-1 draw away to defending European champions Chelsea on December 29, the Seagulls are still battling in the top half of the table. With seven points from their last three Premier League competitions, it should also be noted that Graham Potter’s men have only lost one of their previous seven matches across all formats, a race dating back to November 20th. Undefeated in their last four competitions away from Amex, Brighton should smell a golden chance here. Given West Brom’s recent blip, we’re backing up an away win here at attractive odds.
