Match Preview & Team News
The Bees are currently sitting in 4th place after the mid-week action with total of 67 points. 2nd placed Watford FC are five points ahead, but Brentford played one game less. This squad has the second best goal difference in the league of +26, and expectations for remaining ten rounds are quite high. They had massive two-goal advantage on Tuesday night against Derby County, but still left Pride Park with only one point in their pocket. Ivan Toney is having the best season of his career, but obviously needs rest of teammates to perform better. Read on our Championship betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
At the moment of writing this preview, Nottingham Forest are yet to play their divisional mid-week clash against table leaders Norwich City. The Reds are sitting in 17th place with 41 points total, which is still far away from the relegation zone. Recent form hasn’t been that great, having only one victory in the last five matches. Interestingly, every single one of those ended with low number of goals Under 2.5 FT.
As for the opponents, Brentford FC would have been in so much better position if they didn’t lose three games in a row between 14th and 20th February to QPR, Coventry City and Barnsley. The form stabilized recently, managing to beat Sheff Wed, Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Since we don’t expect a lot of action coming from visitors, Under 2.5 goals seems like a reasonable choice for this market. The current price is 7/10.
In our opinion, Brentford FC deserve to win the 2nd place in Championship this season. Team definitely has the quality, but should work on consistency. Ivan Toney should lead them to a safe win on Saturday. Home win is priced at 4/6 odds.
