Sunderland vs West Brom – Bore draw would suit both teams
Goals have proved a massive problem for Sunderland in the Premier League of late and therefore 8/1 looks a slightly generous price that their clash with West Brom at the Stadium of Light ends 0-0.
Sunderland have failed to find the target in their last four Premier League games and their lack of goals is a good reason as to why they have taken just one point from a possible 21 in the top-flight.
This dreadful run has seen them slip from serious challengers for a European spot to the periphery of the relegation places, but a victory would end any outside doubts of them finishing in the bottom three.
Sunderland are 11/10 in the Premier League odds to beat West Brom and despite their three successive home defeats, it is worth noting that these have come against Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool.
While Sunderland have been floundering, West Brom have taken some giant steps in the right direction since the appointment of Roy Hodgson and now even have the luxury of some breathing space from the drop zone.
West Brom are unbeaten in six games and based on the fact that they are in far better current form than their opponents, 5/2 could be good value that they secure victory.
The draw that would help both sides inch closer to guaranteeing their safety is 23/10.
With both sides seemingly content with a draw and Sunderland enduring their dry spell in front of goal, a 0-0 draw looks the most likely result.
The only alarming statistic that goes against this result is that West Brom have not kept a clean sheet in 29 league games.
However, they have not been conceding many goals of late, being undone by a set-play against Liverpool and letting in twice at the death against Arsenal.
A £20 stake on Sunderland drawing 0-0 with West Brom would return £160. New customers can sign up here.
