West Bromwich Albion have enjoyed a good run of form of late, with a win over Chelsea last weekend showing just how far they have come under the guidance of Roy Hodgson.
Bet365 are offering the Baggies at 5/6 with a two goal head start, which has plenty of punters interested on the men from the Hawthorns.
The former Fulham boss has added a stability to the side, with their defence now proving much harder to break down with the ever reliable Gareth McAuley at the heart of it.
But they face a real test on Saturday when they take on Manchester United in the Premier League, who themselves have a lot to play for.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men are by no means out of the Premier League title race yet, and know a win is essential if they are to keep within touching distance of their local rivals, Manchester City.
When the two sides met earlier on in the season, it was United who came out on top, despite a battling performance from the Baggies.
In truth, it is a fixture that Manchester United have dominated down the years, with you having to go back as far as December 1980 to find West Brom’s last league win over them.
Nevertheless, their win over Chelsea last weekend was somewhat against the odds, so they will no doubt fancy their chances of causing another upset going into this one.
Despite United’s recent dominance in this fixture, West Brom have actually done quite well when the sides have gone head to head, historically.
Although the Reds have won 48 of their league meetings, the Baggies have won a credible 37 themselves, drawing 26.
When these two met at Old Trafford last season, the match ended as a 2-2 draw, something the visitors might well accept this time around.
It all sets up an intriguing fixture, where although United will be the undoubted favourites, West Bromwich Albion will certainly fancy their chances of springing a surprise.
