Betting Preview: Leeds United vs Brentford

Leo Vegas Sport UK take a look at tomorrow's Match Markets

5 October 2018

The Bees head to Elland Road to take on Leeds United tomorrow lunchtime. Ahead of the game, principle partners Leo Vegas Sport UK took a look at the weekend's match markets.

Game 12 in the Sky Bet Championship is arguably Brentford's toughest test so far, with a trip to table-topping Leeds United. Following back-to-back home draws, Brentford have shown quality and bottle to keep fighting, and they must work hard against the league leaders. A point at Elland Road would keep The Bees in the mix, and that is priced at 5/2 at LeoVegas SPORT.

A sense of frustration built towards the end of the Birmingham game, particularly as the visitors opted to park the bus following Maikel Kieftenbeld's red card. Taking on Leeds United, who have only tasted defeat once this season, fittingly at the hands of Birmingham, is an opportunity to play against a more attacking team, which can favour the Bees.

Dean Smith believes the last two draws are "ones that got away", however how sweet would three points at Leeds feel on Saturday? The attitude of the players has been flawless, and the squad is in good shape ahead of the tough test. Brentford have scored more goals in the opening 45 minutes than any other Championship side, with 10 first half goals scored so far. You can get Brentford to lead 0-1 at the break at 17/4.

Brentford, who have only been beaten twice so far this season are only five points away from Leeds, and a win, priced at 2/1 would help claw the leaders back and throw the race open even wider than it already is!

Leo's Prediction: Leeds United 1-1 Brentford, priced at 23/4

Goalscorer: Ollie Watkins to score anytime, available at 16/5

Leo's Top Tip: Brentford had seven attempts on target against Birmingham, with Leeds scoring from their only shot on target against Hull on Wednesday. Dean Smith's men attack well, and we feel they can find the back of the net at Elland Road.
