Blackburn played out their third draw of the season as they came from 2-0 down against Reading to secure a 2-2 result. Charlie Mulgrew spearheaded the comeback with two second-half goals from the penalty spot.

Brentford have also kept one shutout but they have been superior in the forward department with twice the number of goals scored as Blackburn. As such, we are backing the visitors to come up triumphs and our correct score prediction fancies a Brentford 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Since 2014, Blackburn and Brentford have contested on six occasions and four of those games have produced more than three goals. Both teams have not hung back in terms of their chance creation this term and we should witness more of the same at Ewood Park. Our total goals prediction would back more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay and Ollie Watkins have flourished in Brentford’s attack this term but the former has been the more productive contributing half of the club’s goals. The Frenchman has netted the opening goal for Brentford in three of their four games this season and he is a good shot to continue his scoring form – also being their designated penalty taker. Our first goalscorer prediction expects Maupay to open the scoresheet.
