Spurned opportunities marred the Ipswich game, with the Tractor Boys hanging on for the draw.
The result came off the back of three straight Brentford wins, and the single point will serve as added motivation ahead of a tough trip to Pride Park to face Frank Lampard’s improving Derby County. Brentford are priced at 10/3 to win, with both teams scoring at LeoVegas SPORT.
Since their opening 4-1 home defeat to Leeds, Derby have been extremely solid at the back, and have now kept a clean sheet in each of their last three games at Pride Park. While Lampard’s Rams are strong, we’ve got Neal Maupay, who has outscored anyone in England’s top four tiers, scoring eight goals, despite missing two league games through suspension.
Maupay simply can’t stop scoring and we’ve priced him at 4/1 to score the opening goal on Saturday. Ollie Watkins is also the league’s fifth most prolific player with four goals and two assists and he’s available at 7/1 to score the game’s final goal… and with our prediction, indeed the winning goal!
Flushing the disappointing Ipswich draw out of the system is critical, while shaking the Derby hoodoo would be significant, with Brentford failing to register a league win at Derby since 1939. Two points separate the sides, as Brentford are perched in third place only three points behind league leaders Leeds United.
Our prediction is a 2-1 Bees win, with goals from Maupay first and Watkins with the winner.
Leo’s Prediction: Derby 1-2 Brentford, priced at 15/2
Leo’s Tip: If you fancy Watkins to score the winner, head over to the “Wincast – Last Goal” section where he is priced at 21/2 to secure the away victory for the Bees!
