West Brom vs Wolves odds
*Odds correct as of 12:00 on January 27
Nearly three years after the last Black Country derby, West Brom and Wolves go head-to-head once again, this time in the FA Cup. The Baggies scored three goals in the opening 27 minutes as they cruised past National League side Aldershot in the previous round to set up another home tie, this time against one of their closest rivals. They have impressed at the Hawthorns so far this campaign, with a 2-1 loss to league leaders Leicester the only defeat in their last 12 home matches, winning each of the last four and seven of the last nine.
Wolves, meanwhile, are also currently on an unbeaten run having won four and drawn two of their last six matches. This included a 3-2 win over fellow Premier League side Brentford in an FA Cup replay after drawing the first match 0-0, despite having 10 men for 81 minutes of the game. After losing four consecutive matches on the road, Gary O’Neil’s side are now without defeat in the last three after a win (Premier League) and a draw (FA Cup) against Brentford and a goalless draw with Brighton.
