SlipsTips shares a bet from the English Championship on Wednesday night, with Preston North End’s encounter with West Brom taking centre-stage.
Preston North End vs West Bromwich Albion (Wednesday, 20:00)
Two teams struggling for form face off in the English Championship on Wednesday night, as Preston North End welcome West Bromwich Albion to Deepdale.
Ryan Lowe’s 14th-placed hosts have been the second tiers’ draw specialists this season, sharing the spoils in a league-high seven of their 11 outings, the most recent of which was goalless stalemate at Sunderland.
As for West Brom, they have made a woeful start to the season, with Saturday’s 3-2 reverse at home to Swansea leaving the Baggies on the brink of the relegation zone.
Given that it is difficult to have much faith in either of these two teams, I’m happy to highlight an alternative offering by heading to the Total Booking Points Market.
We can get some 5/6 with SkyBet on this midweek fixture generating 40+ Booking Points and that price makes appeal.
Preston have been reliable performers for bookings-based backers this term, averaging exactly two yellows per-game, collecting a minimum of one caution in each of their 11 outings so far.
West Brom, on the other hand, have averaged 1.64 yellows per 90 minutes to date, racking up multiple bookings in three of their five road games to date.
What’s more, we also have a favourable referee appointment in Josh Smith who was one of the more card-happy operators in England this season, having averaged over five cards per-game thus far.
In fact, all but one of the eight matches Smith has taken charge of this term have featured 40+ Booking Points and the EFL whistler should be kept busy here given that both teams will be desperate to put the brakes on their faltering form.
With all this in mind, the 5/6 (SkyBet) on this Deepdale dust-up delivering 40+ Booking Points is a price that definitely represents value.
