Leeds United Betting Preview

Leeds United comes into this game sitting in 14th place in the standings having picked up 17 points. On Wednesday, Leeds United played in the FA Cup and they were able to secure a 5-2 victory over Cardiff City. Wilfried Gnoto and Patrick Bamford each scored two goals. The two goals they gave up were after the 83rd minute. Leeds United had 53 percent of the possession and nine shots on target. Maximilian Wober suffered an injury in the last game, but he’s expected to be able to go in this game. Liam Cooper and Robin Koch didn’t play in the FA Cup, but they both could move into the starting lineup in this game. In this game, Leeds needs to find a way to get the offense going here, much like they did in the last game. Make sure to check out the other free soccer plays for Sunday. 

Brentford Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Brentford who sits in 9th place in the standings having picked up 29 points. Last Saturday Brentford faced off against AFC Bournemouth, and they were able to secure the 2-0 victory. Ivan Toney scored in the 39th minute by penalty and Mathias Jensen also scored in the 75th minute. Brentford had 49 percent of the possession and four shots on target. Pontus Jansson and Frank Onyeka are both dealing with long term injuries and they both won’t be able to go in this game. Aaron Hickey has been out since October with an ankle injury, but he is healthy enough to play in this game, although it’s unclear if he’s going to start. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Leeds United’s offense has been strong heading into this game and they are going to continue the successful scoring here. I really don’t their defense though, and Brentford is going to also score a couple of goals. Look for a 2-2 or 3-2 type of game and this game is going to be higher scoring. Back the over 3.5 goals to cash here.
