Fulham v West Brom latest odds, news and free bets

Fulham might have thrashed Newcastle 5-2 in their last home match, although the bookies are happy enough to take on the Cottagers in Wednesday night’s game

You can get odds of 10/11 (William Hill – £25 free bets) that they claim victory against the Baggies.

Martin Jol’s side have shown against the Magpies and QPR that they can score a hatful when the mood is right, although they will be up against a West Brom team who seem to prefer playing away from The Hawthorns this season.

Roy Hodgson’s team have only won two home games, although the five victories on the road keeps them safely above the bottom five for the time being. However, the manager will know that relying on successful away form is a dangerous pastime.

The most recent success for the Baggies on the road was a 2-1 win at Stoke where James Morrison played out of his skin, although this was once again followed up by a home defeat, with Norwich claiming an away win in the Black Country for the second time this season.

Albion are a 7/2 chance (Betfred bookmaker) to continue enjoying life on the road and Marc-Antoine Fortune has looked decidedly improved in recent weeks, with odds of 11/1 (Blue Square free bets) that he finds the net first in this particular match.

Fulham created plenty of chances during Friday’s 2-1 defeat to Everton in the FA Cup which means that the Premier League is the only competition left for the Cottagers this season. Clint Dempsey was the chief architect behind that 5-2 win over Newcastle and the American is on offer at 6/1 to score first, while Bobby Zamora is the 11/2 favourite.
