Tuesday night’s Premier League fixture between Fulham and West Bromwich Albion sees a huge amount at stake for the west London club.
Mark Hughes will almost certainly be sacked – 5/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave – should he lose at home to the Baggies, and Fulham will be deeply involved in a relegation battle if they don’t manage to take all three points.
Home wins are vital if teams want to stay in the Premier League and Fulham’s home advantage should see them through in this game – Fulham are 11/10 to win and offer plenty of value.
West Brom have lost all four of their last four Premier League games and are sliding towards the bottom three.
Roberto Di Matteo’s side put up a strong fight against Manchester United on Saturday and they will take confidence from that, but stopping a losing run is a difficult task and that is why West Brom are as big as 5/2 to win.
Having never lost to West Brom in the Premier League at Craven Cottage, Fulham look the pick of Tuesday’s prices.
A reversal of the 2-1 victory for West Brom earlier this season could be on the cards and Fulham are 7/1 to win 2-1.
But Fulham’s major problem has been scoring goals with just 11 from 10 home league games this season, and it could be that both goalkeepers don’t have much to do on Tuesday night.
A 0-0 score line is priced at 8/1 and under 2.5 goals looks more than likely.
However Fulham desperately need the win and while they may be the Premier League’s draw specialists, a 1-0 scoreline seems the most likely of results and is priced at 7/1.
A £10 stake on Clint Dempsey scoring first and Fulham winning 1-0 would return £290. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
