Betting Preview: Hull City

Principle Partners Leo Vegas Sport UK take a look at tomorrow's match markets

22 February 2019

It was a tale of two halves in South Wales as Brentford crashed out of the FA Cup, however with little time to dwell, Griffin Park will welcome the boys back with open arms for the next Championship game against Hull City.

You can back The Bees to win 1-0 at odds of 8/1 at LeoVegas SPORT.

It was an excellent first half showing against Swansea where the Bees took a deserved lead through a fine Ollie Watkins counter attacking goal. Brentford were dangerous, fast and were seemingly in control of the game until Swansea forced their way back into things after a fortuitous goal which came off Luke Daniels. That turned the game and the Swans raced to a 4-1 victory against the ten men of Brentford, who lost Ezri Konsa on the hour mark.

It was a collapse which left Thomas Frank disappointed, and he pointed to a lack of control during the key moments of the game. Swansea punished Brentford, however they can get back on track against Hull who are without a win in their last two games. The Tigers are four points above Brentford and a home win can be significant for a top-ten charge.

We can expect an attacking performance from Brentford who have averaged a total of 21 shots per game over their last three games. Opponents Hull only managed an average of 7.3 shots per game over the same period.

Big mistakes cost the Bees at Swansea, but with a tighter display against Hull, three points can be driven home.

Leo's Prediction: Brentford 2-1 Hull, priced at 7/1.

Goal Scorers: Ollie Watkins is at 13/2 to open the scoring again, while you can also get Said Benrahma at 9/4 to score at any time.
