West Brom vs Wolves

, KO: 11:45 Jan 28, 2024, The Hawthorns
Wolves

One of the standout fixtures of the FA Cup fourth round will see Black Country rivals West Bromwich Albion and Wolverhampton Wanderers do battle at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

Carlos Corberán’s side set up this hotly-anticipated clash following a comfortable 4-1 win over National League outfit Aldershot Town in the last round.

The Baggies are currently occupying fifth place in the English Championship and go into this contest off the back of a 2-0 defeat at Norwich.

West Brom were knocked out at this stage in last season's competition and they face a tall order if they are to avoid suffering the same fate this weekend.

Visitors Wolves sealed their passage to the fourth round with a dramatic 3-2 extra-time win over Brentford, in a game where my solitary selection landed at Molineux.

Gary O’Neil’s side extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to six matches by pocketing a well-deserved point at Brighton on Monday night.

Outright Betting

West Bromwich Albion, who have won their last four home matches, are 3/1 outsiders at Bet 365 while the draw can be backed at a best price of 14/5 at UniBet.

Wolverhampton Wanderers make the short trip to the Hawthorns as even-money (1/1) favourites with Ladbrokes.

Betting Angles

Wolves are worthy favourites here but I’m going to bypass the 1×2 betting and instead bundle up Conor Townsend to commit a foul and Pedro Neto to have a shot at 4/5 with PaddyPower.

Whilst West Brom defender Conor Townsend is averaging just 0.5 fouls per-game in the English Championship this season, he will no doubt have his hands full here against one of Wolves’ most dangerous attacking weapons.

The Baggies left-back will most likely be keeping tabs on the skilful Pedro Neto whose blistering pace has been an extremely useful asset for the Old Gold this term, as evidenced by the fact that only two players have created more Premier League goals than the Portuguese forward this term.

It’s also worth noting that Neto has drawn an average of 1.1 fouls  per 90 in the top-flight this term and there is plenty of scope for that trend to continue here given that his likely direct opponent Connor Townsend has tackled his way into trouble in two of his last three outings for the home team.

To bolster the odds up to 4/5 (PaddyPower), I’ll also back the aforementioned Pedro Neto to have at least one shot during this dust-up.

The Wolves wideman is averaging 1.7 shots per 90 in the Premier League this season so a solitary attempt at a goal doesn't look too big of an ask against second-tier opposition this weekend.

Elsewhere, I’ll also take West Brom’s Alex Mowatt to commit a minimum of one foul at 5/6 (PaddyPower) in what promises to be a hard-hitting cup tie.

The Baggies midfielder has been reprimanded by the referee in five of his last seven league appearances so he looks worth backing to clock up another foul here at a value price.

This match between West Brom and Wolves will be played on Jan 28, 2024 and kick off at 11:45. Check below for our tipsters best West Brom vs Wolves prediction. You may also visit our dedicated betting previews section for the most up to date previews.
