West Bromwich Albion, 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, despite being a staple of top-flight English soccer.

How To Make Money Betting On West Brom
West Brom don’t get the credit they deserve, mostly because of the way Tony Pulis organizes his team. Pulis is known for making life miserable for opposing teams. West Brom are well organized, tight in defense, and rarely concede needless goals. Opposing teams earn each and every goal scored against this stout defensive side.
In 2016-17, West Brom were as good at home as they were on the road. Their 11th-best home record was nearly matched by their 12th-best away record. So don’t make bets solely based on location. This team, no matter where they play, are tough to break down.
The Baggies have a knack for scoring on set pieces, so look for prop bets in that realm. They capitalize on corner and free kicks more than most teams. While they don’t score as often as most from open play, West Brom have made a habit of putting teams to the sword from dead-ball situations.
One major criticism of Pulis’ side is their lack of commitment during the latter stages of any given season. Once they hit 40 points – the benchmark for Premier League safety – West Brom hit the snooze button, often losing most matches in the run-in. Look to bet against the Baggies if they are safe in the standings with little else to play for.
Saloman Rondon is their main threat going forward. He finished as the Baggies top scorer with nine goals.
The Midlands’ team scored 43 goals, which was good for 13th most in the top flight. On the defensive side of the ball, the Baggies conceded a ninth-best 51 goals. No matter how you slice it, most analytical categories tell the same story: this team is destined for mid-table.
Don’t make any silly future bets on West Brom, as they’re not good enough to make any European competitions, nor are they likey to win the FA Cup. However, you can guarantee that they will remain in the Premier League for years to come, as Pulis doesn’t accept anything but top-flight football.
