West Bromwich Albion, better known as The Baggies, are a professional soccer team based out of the Midlands in England. They share many long-standing rivalries with other midlands clubs, particularly Wolverhampton Wonderers. The Baggies were one of the founding members of the football league and have spent the majority of their existence in the top flight of English soccer. They have been crowned champions of England once and finished runners up twice. The majority of the clubs success, though, has come in the FA Cup.
They have won the FA Cup five times and the league cup once, their last triumph coming in 1968. That also happened to be the Baggies’ last major trophy, even despite being a staple of top-flight English soccer.

How To Make Money Betting On West Brom
Sorry to say, but the best way to win money, for the most part, is to bet against West Brom.
In the 2015/16 campaign, West Brom mustered only 10 victories, which means that backing the moneyline is pretty much out of the question.
Looking at goal statistics presents a betting opportunity, though. Despite not winning many games, West Brom only conceded 1.26 goals per game and scored 0.89 goals per game over the course of the season.
This is a pretty clear indicator that West Brom is well organised and strong at the back, no surprise for a Tony Pulis side. But they lack creativity and quality at the opposite end.
This makes betting under on the goal market a great bet week in week out. As always, be weary of taking unders against some of the heavy hitters as they are always capable of scoring goals. There’s a time and a place for those sort of bets.
Saloman Rondon is their main threat going forward. He finished as the Baggies top scorer with nine goals.
There were 23 occasions where a team failed to have a shot on target in the Premier League last season and West Brom accounted for seven of those. The Baggies had the second lowest goal tally of all Premier League clubs in 2015. Only bottom club Aston Villa had a worse scoring record.
On a positive note, the Baggies are extremely capable from set pieces, 35% of all goals coming from dead-ball situations so a parlay bet might be the best course of action.
