Betting Preview: Brentford vs Oxford United

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

5 January 2019

The Bees flew into the new year with an excellent draw against second-placed Norwich, ensuring they remained unbeaten over the festive season.

Fans have plenty of reason to cheer with Brentford having extended their unbeaten run to four games. A brief rest bite from league duties sees Brentford take on Oxford United in the FA Cup third round at Griffin Park where a 2-0 home win is priced at 7/1 at LeoVegas SPORT.

Despite the gap between Norwich and Brentford, it was Frank's men who carved out more goalscoring opportunities, and fans saw their Bees stand up well to strong opposition. Oxford United, who currently occupy 22nd spot in League One offer a different threat, however Frank can also rotate his squad to spread experience.

Brentford's FA Cup involvement last season was a brief one, ending in a 1-0 defeat to Notts County, but facing a side who have not won in their last eight league games can be ideal. Oxford have however earned their spot in the third round after a 2-1 win over Plymouth Argyle.

As usual, we offer a host of markets at LeoVegas SPORT, with all possible score lines available to you and you can even get a home win to nil available at 9/5. Another tempting option is to bet on the home team to win both halves at 29/10.

Leo's Prediction: Brentford 2-0 Oxford, priced at 7/1
