We all welcome the Wigan Athletic game after the international break, and it also marks the return of Neal Maupay following his suspension. He’s hungry to add to his five goals so far and is priced at 7/2 to score first this weekend at LeoVegas SPORT.
Wigan might be below Brentford in 10th place, but only one point splits the clubs, and a 1-0 win for the home side is priced at 13/2. Wigan have tasted defeat twice this season, faltering against Aston Villa and QPR recently, and they also lost 3-1 in the League Cup against Brentford's opening day opponents Rotherham United.
The Bees' home form has been impeccable so far, with four wins from four on home soil and the backing of the Griffin Park faithful can certainly give the team a boost against the visitors.
12 players flew out on international duty over the last week, competing in three continents, representing The Bees well while away. International recognition may be a great source of pride but Dean Smith will be happy to have his squad back for a tough run of games. The manager knows the importance of three points this weekend – with three matches away from home following the Wigan clash.
Wigan have scored in just one of the last four matches between the two sides and a Brentford win to nil is available at 5/2.
Leo’s Prediction: Brentford 1-0 Wigan, priced at 13/2
Goal scorer: Neal Maupay who is priced at 7/2 to score first, and equally priced to score last.
Leo’s Tip: Brentford have notched up 45 shots over their last three games, so expect more attacking from Dean Smith’s mighty Bees!
