Brentford v Leeds United Betting Preview, Odds & Tips

  • Date: 22/04/19
  • Time: 17:15
  • Venue: Griffin Park
  • Channel: Sky Sports Main Event

Brentford will be eager to put a dent in Leeds’ promotion hopes as Marcelo Bielsa’s side come to visit Griffin Park.

The Bees drew last time out to Millwall and have endured a mixed campaign this season, sitting in 15th spot currently.

Despite being very poor on their travels, Brentford have been fantastic at home boasting the fourth best home record in the Championship.

Leeds will be desperate to put the defeat to ten-man Wigan behind them as they look to capture second spot back from Yorkshire rivals Sheffield United.

Biesla will be keen to prevent any further slip-ups as the season draws to an end otherwise his side will have it all to do in the play-offs.

A win at Griffin Park could spur Leeds on to snatch second spot back but a loss would really compile a miserable Easter weekend for the Whites.

Team News

Brentford will be without Henrik Dalsgaard who is serving a suspension following the Bees’ draw to Millwall.

Leeds captain Liam Cooper will once again be forced to miss out with injury which kept him out of the Wigan clash.

Potential Brentford Starting XI: Daniels, Bech Sorenson, Racic, Konsa Ngoyo, Odubajo, Mokotjo, Dasilva, Canos, Watkins, Maupay, Marcondes

Potential Leeds United Starting XI: Casilla, Ayling, Jansson, Beradi, Alioski, Phillips, Hernandez, Roberts, Klich, Harrison, Bamford

The Verdict

Biesla knows that time is running out for his Leeds side and that they must not endure any more slip-ups if they are to claim back second place.

Patrick Bamford has been Leeds’ bright spark in recent weeks and he scored last time out in the defeat to Wigan. The former Middlesbrough striker will be keen to notch here too, and if you want to back this, odds of 8/5 are available at Coral.

However, Brentford do have a great record in front of their own fans and will fancy themselves to inflict further damage on Leeds. Both teams to score and Brentford to win is available at 5/1 via Bet365.

Leeds have picked up a majority of their points in the second-half and normally go into the half-time interval level. Marathon Bet offers odds of 97/20 for Leeds to be level at half-time but to win at full-time.

Recommended Bets

  • 1pt – Draw/Leeds – 97/20 (MarathonBet)
  • 2pt – Patrick Bamford anytime goalscorer – 8/5 (Coral)
