Brentford will be aiming to prop up the standings when they entertain promotion-chasing Blackburn Rovers at Griffin Park this weekend. The hosts have remained unbeaten in the past month and it has extended the gap between them and the drop zone to double figures. Blackburn, meanwhile, are at the top end of the table with a three-point gap to the top six with their perfect run since the turn of the year. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brentford secured a second-straight league triumph earlier in the month where they beat Rotherham United 4-2 on the road. On Monday night, they were in FA Cup action against Barnet but they could only muster a 3-3 draw which has enforced a replay.
Blackburn continued their sublime start to the year after they secured a comfortable 3-0 win over Hull City last weekend. Tony Mowbray’s side have remained victorious in each of the previous four league games.
The previous meeting between the sides was at Ewood Park in August and the game finished 1-0 in Blackburn’s favour. The last encounter at Griffin Park was in 2017 which saw Blackburn win by a 3-1 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions fancies a Brentford win.

Blackburn are backed at 4.00 for a fifth-straight league win but we don’t anticipate them to come victorious. The Rovers have picked up their form tremendously since the beginning of the year but the results have largely been achieved in front of their supporters. They have attained a single win away from home since October and this should put them in the back foot against Brentford, who have the strike force to pounce on their woes. Our preview is to go with a Brentford win.

Correct Score odds
Brentford and Blackburn have amassed nine goals apiece in the past five games but the latter have fared better with three points more than their counterparts. Still, Brentford should have the upper hand for the weekend, given the visitors have picked just five points from the past eight away trips. Our correct score prediction fancies a 2-1 Brentford win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Brentford have failed to keep a single clean sheet since the turn of the year and the majority of those matches have produced more than two goals.

Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Maupay.
