Brentford aim for a first win in four games when they host Birmingham City at Griffin Park in the midweek action. Dean Smith’s team were able to remain in contention for a play-off berth as they moved into the sixth place after the weekend results. Birmingham City remain in the mid-table places but they were able to make up ground after managing 10 points so far. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brentford were held to a 2-2 draw by Reading in a disappointing result for the London outfit at home. The last victory for Brentford came at Griffin Park when they beat Wigan 2-0. Since then, the team has picked up two draws and two wins.
Birmingham City continued their good run of form with a strong comeback against Ipswich Town, but manager Gary Monk was not happy with dropping two points at home – especially when the team has been playing well.
Brentford produced an incredible performance to beat Birmingham 5-0 in the last meeting between the two clubs at Griffin Park. This happens to be the third biggest win for Brentford in Championship history. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Birmingham have been playing really well in recent weeks and it is a surprise to see them priced at 6.00 to win the game. The league table has not been directly reflective of recent form, but Birmingham are at a disadvantage coming into the game after losing the last three matches against Brentford. The London outfit will have to be wary about Birmingham’s improved strength going forward, as the blues have scored just one fewer (7) than Brentford in the last six. Our preview would choose a draw.

Brentford win odds: 1.60
Birmingham City win odds: 6.00
Correct Score odds
Birmingham have displayed in a lot of resilience in recent weeks and this was none more so apparent in the draw with Ipswich. Monk was disappointed in the way his team gave a two-goal lead to the opposition, but he was also happy with the way blues managed a comeback. Brentford also had to come away from a difficult game against Reading with a stalemate. Our correct score prediction would opt for a highflying 2-2 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This has been a fixture to witness goals and the recent encounter between the two clubs at the Griffin Park – which went 5-0 in favour of the hosts – does not dampen spirits. In fact, just one of the last five meetings between Brentford and Birmingham has been a low scoring game. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay has come up with a goal in both of his games against Birmingham. The 22-year-old also ranks as a key player in that Championship after managing nine goals already. He broke a two-game winless streak with the opener against Reading and our first goalscorer prediction would back Maupay.
