There are 2 English Premier League fixtures taking place on Monday night and we have a look at each of them from a betting angle.
WEST BROM v WOLVES
West Brom are 2nd from bottom of the table and with 5 games left to play they are in with nothing more than a mathematical chance of survival. They are coming off a 2-2 draw away at Aston Villa and their last home game was a convincing 3-0 victory against Southampton.
They have won 3 and drawn 5 of their 16 home matches this season and looking at their goal stats at home, West Brom matches have averaged 2.8 goals, but they only scored 12 while conceding 33.
Wolves are 12th on the table and saw a 2 match winning run ended when they lost 4-0 at home to Burnley last time out. Their last away game was a 1-0 victory over Fulham and they have won 5 and drawn 6 of their 16 away games this season.
As far as Wolves away games goes from a goal perspective they have reached 2.3 goals each with 7 of the 16 games delivering profits had you backed over 2.5 goals.
West Brom won this fixture 3-2 away from home earlier in the season.

West Brom 18/10
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 11/10
Neither of these teams have that much left to play for and I am expecting quite an open game and perhaps something similar to what we saw in the reverse fixture.
BURNLEY v WEST HAM
Burnley are 16th on the table and appear to have secured another season of English Premier League football. They broke a 3 match losing streak when they beat Wolves 4-0 away last time out. Their last home game was a 2-1 loss to Newcastle and over 2.5 goal backers would have collected in the last 5 Burnley matches and both teams to score backers would have made profits in 6 of their last 7 games. Their home form has been poor this season with only 4 wins in 16 games and their home games are the lowest scoring in the EPL, averaging just 1.9 goals each with under 12.5 goal backers collecting their profits in 12 of the 16 matches.
West Ham are 5th on the table and still have outside chances for a Top 4 finish. Their form has hit a wobbly patch though with back-to-back defeats, at home to Chelsea and away at Newcastle. The Chelsea 1-0 defeat broke a run of 4 successive matches which would have seen 4 or more goals scored in each game.
They have won 7 and drawn 3 of 16 away matches this season and their away matches have averaged 2.9 goals each with 11 of the 16 games reaching the 3 goal mark to see over 2.5 goal backers collect returns.

West Ham 14/10
Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 17/20
Both these sides have played in some high scoring matches of late and I am expecting more of the same and the goals to flow in this one.
