Brentford take on the Championship’s bottom-club Ipswich at the Griffin Park hoping to end their poor run of form. Brentford remain in the bottom half of the table even with the team in completing a string of disappointing results. Thomas Frank’s men are set to finish the campaign without any relegation fears. Ipswich remain at the bottom after the weekend results that saw Paul Lambert receive a major boost in the form of three points. Ipswich are an incredible 13 points away from safety with six games left. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brentford were able to produce a spectacular comeback – three times in the game – to register a 3-3 draw with Derby County at Griffin Park. The result, however, marked the fifth successive match without a win for Brentford.
Ipswich were finally able to end a 12-game winless sequence after making the most of a match against Bolton. The 2-1 win over Bolton at the Macron Stadium gives Ipswich a glimmer of hope to avoid relegation.
The reverse fixture between Ipswich and Brentford produced a 1-1 draw at Portman Road. The last meeting between these two teams at Griffin Park witnessed Brentford getting a 1-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions for the match would opt for a Brentford win.

Thomas Frank was delighted with the manager of the comeback against Derby County. If the Brentford team continues to create chances in the same vein as they did against Frank Lampard’s men, they stand a good chance of decimating Ipswich, who have picked up only two away victories this season. Brentford, meanwhile, would be in the top six when it comes to home form alone. Our preview would go with a win for Brentford.

Brentford vs Ipswich Town draw odds: 4.75
Ipswich Town win odds: 8.50
Correct Score odds
Brentford and Ipswich have played tight matches in recent head-to-head meetings, but Ipswich’s poor record in away games is likely to hand the impetus to Brentford. Both teams have been low on goals with Brentford’s defensive record taking a beating after the three goals conceded against Derby, but Ipswich may not be able to break the home team’s defence. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-0 win for Brentford.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been less than 2.5 goals in the last five meetings between Brentford and Ipswich with the last high-scoring encounter between these two teams occurring three years ago. Lambert continues to remain as a defensive manager and it is unlikely to expect goals from his team in an away match. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay was one of the scorers in the 3-3 draw with Derby County. This goal helped the Frenchman overcome a five-game drought that had started since his goal against QPR back in the first week of March. Maupay has been a crucial source of goals for Brentford this season with the 22-year-old managing 21 goals and seven assists from his 38 starts. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Maupay.
