Leeds United are heavy odds on across the board to beat this afternoon's visitors West Brom and generally 1-2 or 4-9 with most firms. Odds of 6-11 are the best on offer.

Sam Allardyce's already-relegated Baggies can be backed at 11-2 and even the draw can be backed at 4s.

The bookies fancy Patrick Bamford to add to his tally of 16 goals for the season in the final game as the Whites no 9 is a clear 15-4 market leader to net the game's first goal and odds on at 19-20 as an any time scorer.

Every market is complete one-way Whites traffic as the first scorer market is dominated by Leeds threats and Rodrigo is second favourite to score first at 6-1.

Other than the odd firm having odds for young duo Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood, Raphinha is next at 7s, followed by Jack Harrison at 17-2.

West Brom's top scorer Matheus Pereira is then next at 9s, the same price as outgoing Leeds promotion hero Pablo Hernandez and also Whites youngster Crysencio Summerville who is particularly prominent in the market.

But so is Hernandez given his lack of recent game time and the Spaniard is 14-5 to net at any point at all in what will be his final game for the club.

Mbaye Diagne (10s), Hal Robson-Kanu (11s), Callum Robinson (12s) and Karlan Grant (14s) are seen as the other main Baggies threats and bigger odds than the likes of Kamil Grosicki (16s), Kyle Edwards (16s), Grady Diangana (20s), Matt Phillips (20s) and Conor Gallagher (25s).

Tyler Roberts (10s), Ian Poveda (10s) and Stuart Dallas (12s) are also prominent for the Whites and the bookies are almost certain there will be goals with no goalscorer on offer at 28s.

For the ultimate dream conclusion, the departing Gaetano Berardi is 40-1 to net first and 18s to net at any time at all.

It couldn't happen could it?

You never know, and whatever materialises, the bookmakers definitely foresee a Whites victory with Bamford scoring and a 2-1 triumph is favourite at 42-5.
