West Brom to win @ 4/5

Two teams with very different needs go head to head on Monday night. West Brom want a win to keep them in the race for the automatic promotion places, while a win for relegation threatened Bolton will move them up to third last and level on points with Rotherham.

Logic would suggest that West Brom should win easily, but this is the Championship and anything can happen. All clichés aside, West Brom should get the job done tonight. The concession of a late equaliser at home to Norwich was costly and they now find themselves six points behind the Canaries. But with Leeds and Sheffield United both suffering mildly surprising defeats, a door has opened up for West Brom and it is essential that they take this chance to close the gap.

Albion haven’t won in three and need to put things right against Bolton, who have only one league win since the end of September, which came against lowly Rotherham. They have kept in touch with their relegation rivals by virtue of drawing every once in a while, but West Brom should have just about enough to avoid that particular scenario.

Dwight Gayle to score anytime @ 5/4

With 14 goals this season, Gayle is undoubtedly Albion’s greatest scoring threat. He is a player built for a promotion campaign and is proving that again this season. With Harvey Barnes making his way back to Leicester at the start of the month, the goalscoring responsibility falls even more heavily on Gayle.

Gayle has five goals in his last five games, and he will be looking to make that at least six goals from six when the Baggies take on Bolton. The Trotters are a tough nut to crack at home and haven’t conceded more than one goal at home since Nottingham Forest beat them 3-0 in October. Their aim will be to frustrate West Brom, who they shocked in the Hawthorns earlier in the season, and it goes without saying that chances will be at a premium.

Gayle is exactly the man you want for this type of situation, as he has shown time and time again that he is ruthlessly clinical in the second tier and he is good value to get his name on the scoresheet tonight.

Jason Lowe to be booked @ 21/10

Lowe’s disciplinary record is, for want of a better word, abysmal. He has nine yellow cards in his 26 Championship games this season and only a handful of players can boast a worse record. He is one booking away from a two-game ban and that’ll probably come tonight. Lowe averages over a foul a game, which increases the likelihood that he will be carded at some stage.

It is hardly surprising that his discipline has been so poor. Playing in a defensive role for a relegation threatened team is bound to leave you exposed, and fouls and bookings are inevitable. Bolton will be up against it tonight and with such a poor disciplinary record, Lowe is bound to make a foul or two. At 21/10, he is a very attractive price to be shown a yellow card.

A Same Game Multi on these three bets pays out at 10/1
