Betting Preview: Brentford vs Stoke City

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

12 January 2019

We've danced into the New Year and into the FA Cup Fourth Round after a 1-0 win over Oxford United.

Brentford's form over the last five games reads WDDDW and with no L in sight, we've got odds of 13/2 for a 1-0 home win against Stoke. 

The two sides met earlier this season, with Stoke somehow claiming a point after a dominant Brentford display. In contrast to the Bees' form, Stoke lost their last league game, falling to a 2-0 home defeat to Bristol City.

The Potters will be looking for an upturn in fortunes following the midweek appointment of Nathan Jones as the club’s new manager but currently sit in 14th place, only seven points above Brentford, with a negative goal difference.

At this stage, Brentford have scored six more league goals than their opponents and with Neal Maupay in the groove again we are backing him to score first with odds of 18/5.

Owing to Stoke's lack of sharpness up front, the home team to win to nil market is glowing. Stoke have not scored in three league games, and you can get Brentford to win to nil at 14/5.

The Bees are facing an inconsistent opponent and Thomas Frank’s men are beginning to find form again after a very tough run of results. The home fans will be up for it and The Potters can expect a vociferous Griffin Park.

Leo's Prediction: Brentford 1-0 Stoke

Goal scorer: Neal Maupay, priced at 18/5 to score first.

Key Stats: The Bees are five games unbeaten, with three clean sheets on that run.leo
