Betting Preview: Brentford vs Blackburn Rovers

Principle partners Leo Vegas Sport UK take a look at today's match markets

2 February 2019

Brentford return to Griffin Park this weekend looking to extend their current unbeaten run to nine games as they play host to Blackburn Rovers.

Rovers sit in eighth place, just three points off the play-offs and nine points ahead of the Bees. The hosts are priced at 9/10 to secure the victory, while a Blackburn win is 13/4 and the draw is priced at 13/5.

Brentford will be looking to get off to a fast start and, with ten of Blackburn’s last 12 Championship goals having come in the second half of games, Brentford to win the first half is priced at 7/5 while Brentford to win the first half 2-0 is 17/2.

Brentford have been in fine goalscoring form of late, netting at least three goals in the last three games. Thomas Frank‘s men are almost 3/1 to do that again against Blackburn, while they can be backed at 8/1 to go one better and score four or more this weekend. 

And while the team as a whole have been back among the goals, top goalscorer Neal Maupay found the back of the net three times in January and will be looking to take that goalscoring form into this month. The 22-year-old Frenchman is over 3/1 to score first and almost Evens to score anytime. A Maupay hat-trick can be backed at 25/1.

Leo's Prediction: Brentford to win 3-1, priced at 12/1.

Goal scorers: Kamohelo Mokotjo may not be known for his goals but the midfielder scored twice in Brentford’s last league outing and the 27-year-old is 13/2 to score anytime this weekend.
