West Brom v Sunderland Odds: Baggies a good bet to continue excellent form against visitors

West Brom head into Saturday’s match at the Hawthorns looking to extend their six game Premier League run against visitors Sunderland. The Baggies have won five of the last six encounters against the Black Cats and will be confident of claiming another victory following their shock 2-0 win at Anfield last week.

Steve Clarke’s men have now done the double over Liverpool as well as beating the likes of Chelsea and Everton. The fantastic result against the previously in-form Reds also ended a dire run of eight league and cup matches without a victory and they will now look to win back-to-back matches for the first time in 2013. Bookmakers Paddy Power have installed the Baggies as the 21/20 favourites to register the win, while Sunderland can be backed at 11/4, with a draw at 23/10.

Sunderland's main priority is undoubtedly avoiding the drop but if they can claim all three points on Saturday then they will edge closer to the top 10. Their recent form has been shakey, with the Black Cats without a win in three games following a drab goalless draw with Swansea and narrow defeats to Sunderland and Arsenal.

With Liverpool and Swansea not in action this weekend a win for West Brom would see them leap frog the duo up in to seventh place. They thumped Sunderland 4-2 at the Stadium of Light back in November and, considering they have fired four past their north east opponents in each of their last two meetings, they are a tempting bet at 9/1 to win on Saturday with five or more total goals in the match. Meanwhile a 2-0 win can be found at 17/2, with a 2-1 victory at 7/1.

Sunderland haven't beaten West Brom in the last half-a-dozen meetings between the sides and on their current form a win at the Hawthorns may be deemed unlikely. However, they will be boosted by the fact that the Baggies have failed to win any of their last four home matches, with three of those games ending in a defeat. Martin O'Neill's men could be worth a punt at 9/1 to sneak a 1-0 win, while a score draw is available at 10/3.

Romelu Lukaku's last gasp goal at Anfield means he has now reached double figures and the Belgian looks a decent bet at 5/1 to open the scoring at the Hawthorns, while he has been handed odds of 11/4 to score in a West Brom win. Other players to look out for in the anytime goalscorer market include Shane Long at 7/4 and Chris Brunt at 9/2.

Like Lukaku Sunderland's Steven Fletcher has 10 league goals to his name so far this season and as usual he will be their main threat in front of goal. The striker, who bagged a brace at Wigan last month, is priced at 6/1 to open the scoring and 15/8 to find the back of the net anytime. Meanwhile Craig Gardner has scored in his last two away games, making him an attractive bet at 9/2 to score in the latest betting with PaddyPower bookmakers.
