Fulham 14/10, Draw 47/20, West Brom 21/10

 

After being promoted from the Championship last season both these sides are still looking for a first win. Fulham's only point from 6 matches came in a 1-1 draw away to Sheffield United, who at the time of writing, were also in the relegation zone. Results at home include 3-0 defeats to Arsenal and Aston Villa and a 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace.

 

West Brom have drawn 3 of their last 4 outings and have at least been threatening to win a game. Their best opportunity came in Round 3 when they were 3-0 up at home to Chelsea but they couldn't hold keep it going and the game ended 3-3. Their other points came at home to Burnley (0-0) and most recently away at Brighton (1-1).

 

Both Championship meetings last season finished all square, 1-1 here and 0-0 at West Brom.

 

Verdict:

West Brom have looked the more likely to grab a win and the recent addition of Karlan Grant (21/10) to score anytime here) makes them tempting. However defeat would be a dagger blow to Fulham and whilst it is not the most imaginative pick, it could pay to side with the draw.

 

Bet: Match result draw at 47/20

 

 

Leeds 31/20, Draw 51/20, Leicester 17/10

 

Leeds have taken 10 points from their first 6 matches and last time out a Bamford hat-trick gave them an impressive 3-0 win away to Aston Villa who had been in terrific form. At home Leeds have beaten Fulham (4-3), drawn with Manchester City (1-1) and lost to Wolves (1-0).

 

Leicester are 2 points better off than Leeds with a record of 4 wins and 2 defeats. In the first half of October they suffered a blip with back to back home defeats to West Ham and Villa but away from home their record is of the 100% variety. Leicester were 3-0 winners at West Brom on the opening weekend, they thrashed City 5-2 in Manchester and in their latest league outing they won 1-0 at Arsenal.

 

Verdict:

This should be a good game to watch but it looks a tricky one to call. Leicester could use the same blueprint Wolves did and look to hit this enterprising Leeds side on the counter attack but I can't form an opinion on the match result and will instead look to the goalscorer markets.

I like the look of Mateusz Klich (Leeds) as a player and his ability to pop up in the box from time to time relatively un-noticed earns him a speculative anytime goalscorer selection.

 

Bet: Anytime goalscorer Mateusz Klich at 7/2
