West Brom Can Prevent Leeds Going Top
West Brom have the best away record in the Championship this season which will be tested when they visit Leeds United tonight. The home team have the incentive of going to the top of the table with three points but could come up short. West Brom have only failed to win once in nine league matches on the road and they are the second highest scorers in the league.
Leeds are stronger going forward than at the other end of the field so this is a fixture with the potential for more than two goals and both teams to score. The key stats in both areas suggest there is about a 60% chance of both outcomes but this is reflected in the odds. The better value lies in backing WEST BROM to win the match at 12/5 with Betfair.
There are local derbies in both codes of rugby this evening when teams from Gloucestershire and Yorkshire meet. Gloucester are the form team in the rugby union Premiership but winning at Bristol may be beyond them. The hosts play their home matches at Ashton Gate where they have some significant scalps this season. They have a 4 point start on the handicap but BRISTOL are the bet at 6/4 with bet365.
In rugby league Leeds have started the season with four away matches so their points deficit of just 11 points is not such a bad return. Wakefield have played twice at home and once on the road and their point’s difference is one point worse. They lost by 18 points away to London who are newly promoted to the Super League. LEEDS are 4/9 with bet365 to beat Wakefield tonight.
The richest race of the day is the Listed stakes over one mile at Dundalk (7.45). Aidan O’Brien trained the first three in the race last season and has three runners in this race. His son Joseph has two entries which means that all but three of the eight runners are trained by the father or son. Ryan Moore will be riding WESTERN AUSTRALIA for O’Brien senior and though the logic is not foolproof that could be a tip at 6/5 with Betfair.
