Fulham vs West Bromwich Albion Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Fulham and West Brom are set to serve up goals when they meet in the EFL Championship at Craven Cottage. Both teams are early promotion playoff contenders and appear evenly matched at the moment. They often struggle defensively and are tipped to produce BTTS.

Fulham FC Form & Team News


Fulham were held to a 1-1 draw at Cardiff in their previous Championship fixture. They fell behind on 42 minutes but struck back on the stroke of halftime through Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Cottagers have been one of the more impressive teams in the Championship this season having claimed three wins and two draws from six matches. Scott Parker’s men are valued at 2.00 to win on Saturday but with five goals conceded already this season, BTTS looks a more likely outcome at 1.62.

The Baggies are one of three unbeaten teams left in the Championship having claimed three wins and three draws from their six matches. Slaven Bilic’s men are priced at 3.60 for a win at Craven Cottage but given their recent results, a draw is worth a punt at odds of 3.50.
