Brentford Betting Preview
Brentford comes into this game sitting in 8th place in the standings having picked up 41 points. In the last game against Southampton, Brentford scored two goals and that was enough to secure the victory. Ivan Toney scored in the 32nd minute and Yoane Wissa also scored a goal in the 97th minute. Keane Lewis-Potter underwent knee surgery and now is expected to miss the next couple of months. Vitaly Janelt hurt his knee in the last game, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be able to go in this game. It’s expected that Frank Onyeka will move into the starting lineup to replace him.
Leicester City Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City, who sits in 16th place in the standings having picked up 24 points. Leicester has hit quite the slump, losing five games in a row heading into this one. Last Saturday, they faced off against Chelsea, and they gave up three goals on the way to the 3-1 defeat. Patson Daka did pick up a goal for Leicester City in the 39th minute, but it wasn’t enough. Leicester City did finish with eight shots on target. Wout Faes picked up a red card ad will be suspended for this game. Johnny Evans is someone who could move into the starting lineup in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
Leicester City wants to finish this part of the season on a high note, but it’s not going to happen. Leicester City’s defense has been a major issue heading into this game, and it’s going to really let them down again in this game. Brentford are going to score two or three goals and that will be the difference as they are going to get the job done. Back Brentford on the money line.
