Brentford are at Griffin Park for the weekend’s league meeting versus Hull City. Brentford have enjoyed an upheaval in league form since the turn of the year but they are still far off from breaking into the top six. Hull, meanwhile, are four points ahead of their counterparts but their playoff prospects have taken a hit amid their indifferent run of late.

Betting Tips for the game
Brentford returned to winning ways in the Championship earlier this month where they bagged a 1-0 triumph over Aston Villa. However, they could not sustain a similar performance in the FA Cup fifth round with Swansea City clinching a comfortable 4-1 win over them.
Hull, on the other hand, went winless for the second game on the bounce after a frustrating 2-2 draw against Rotherham United. Nigel Adkins’ side have won just one of the previous five league matches.
Brentford’s previous meeting against Hull came at the KCOM Stadium in December which finished in a 2-0 defeat. The last encounter at Griffin Park came in the final gameweek of last season and it ended in a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions favour a Brentford win.

Hull have struggled since losing their six-match winning run in January and in this period, they have gone through successive away matches without scoring. Such statistic does not seem favourable, particularly against Brentford, who have started building up on their home form with three straight wins. Our preview fancies Brentford to come up triumphs.

Brentford vs Hull City draw odds: 4.20
Hull City win odds: 4.33
Correct Score odds
Brentford have scored 14 times in the past five matches and this is eight more than Hull have managed in the same timeline. Hence, Brentford should pose the better threat with the home advantage at their disposal, although we are fancying Hull to find the scoresheet after drawing blank in back-to-back away trips. Our correct score prediction is to go with a Brentford 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Brentford may have come with a shutout in the past league fixture but that was their first since the turn of the year. Keeping this in mind, an open scoring contest can be anticipated with Neal Maupay and Jarrod Bowen in good scoring form for their respective teams. Our total goals prediction backs more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay and Jarrod Bowen have excelled for Brentford and Hull respectively this season but we are going with the former to find the breakthrough with the home advantage at the disposal. The Frenchman has opened the scoring with the majority of his 18 league goals this term and this was the case in the recent 1-0 win over Villa. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Maupay.
