Sunderland-West Bromwich Albion Betting Preview: Back the Black Cats to beat the Baggies

Gustavo Poyet's men have produced some sensational results in recent weeks and our tipster expects the home side to keep that run going against Pepe Mel's men on Wednesday
Sunderland will look to maintain their recent run of fine form when they play host to West Bromwich Albion at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday.

Gustavo Poyet's side looked destined to drop into the Championship just a few weeks ago but, having collected an impressive 10 points from their last four Premier League matches, the Black Cats know that a point on Wednesday will ensure that they preserve their top flight status for another season.

The home side will come into Wednesday's encounter brimming with confidence having held Manchester City at Etihad Stadium before recording victories over Chelsea, Cardiff City and Manchester United.

Given that sequence of results, the 11/10 (2.10) quote from bet365 for Poyet's men to pick up maximum points from their meeting with the Baggies looks to be decent value.

West Bromwich Albion have won just two of their last 15 league matches on the road and Pepe Mel’s side can be backed at 16/5 (4.20) with bet365 to claim a crucial win on Wednesday.

With both sides knowing that a point apiece will be enough to see off the threat of relegation, the draw is likely to be a popular selection with punters and the stalemate can be backed at a tempting 11/5 (3.20) with bet365.

It is worth noting that West Brom have conceded in 13 of their last 14 Premier League matches away from the Hawthorns, and should they exhibit any defensive deficiencies on Wednesday, Poyet's Black Cats will be poised to pounce.

Sunderland have found the net in seven of their last eight matches and, with that in mind, the even money (2.0) quote offered up by bet365 for three or more goals to be scored looks to be a solid selection.

The Black Cats, though, are in superb form and Poyet will be keen to see his side claim a fourth successive Premier League victory when they line up against a Baggies side that has failed to produce their best on the road thus far this term.

Therefore, it is the even money (2.0) quote from bet365 for Sunderland to score two or more goals that is the recommended play for punters ahead of Wednesday's crunch clash.
