Brentford remain hopeful of overturning the disastrous reign under Thomas Frank when the club hosts Bolton at Griffin Park this weekend. Brentford are now only three points above the drop zone as a very poor run of form has seen them consistently go down the league table. Meanwhile, Bolton remain in the bottom three after having gone 12 league games without a victory in the league. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brentford have been on a six-game winless run after a 2-0 defeat against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium. Brentford offered little going forward and were not clinical in the decisive end of the pitch.
Bolton came close to holding Leeds United but ended up losing the game 1-0 at home. This was the third defeat in the last four matches for Parkinson’s team.
Brentford were able to get a 2-0 win over Bolton in the recent meeting between the two clubs at Griffin Park. It also happens to be the last meeting for these two teams. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Bolton and Brentford have been through a difficult run of results of late. Bolton’s winless run stands at an incredible 12 matches, while Brentford are at 50% of those numbers. Brentford’s form has dissipated since the departure of Dean Smith and Thomas Frank has been unable to make any progress in overcoming the club’s rapid decline in the table. Bolton had a handicap since the start of the campaign and the club are expected to remain in relegation trouble throughout the season. Yet, the two teams may play out a draw.

Brentford win odds: 1.50
Bolton win odds: 7.00
Correct Score odds
Brentford may have the second top scorer in the Championship this season in the form of Neal Maupay but he has been unable to salvage many points for the team in recent weeks. Bolton are very poor going forward but both teams have the potential to grab at least a goal – Bolton largely managing to score through set pieces. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The game features two teams that have struggled at the back but they have also been poor going forward in terms of making decisions. Brentford struggled in the final third against Hull City. Even though matters are expected to improve in this match at Griffin Park, it may still not be enough to produce an entertaining match. Just one of the last five matches for Bolton has been a high-scoring fixture and our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The form of Maupay has suffered a tremendous decline with the former only managing one goal in his last five appearances. Even then, he remains only behind Lewis Grabban in the Championship scoring charts. Our first goalscorer prediction would back the 22-year-old to open the scoring.
