Leeds United hope to avoid a spectacular collapse in the promotion race when they take on Brentford at Griffin Park on Monday night. Marcelo Bielsa’s team appear to be choking with the season only having a few games left. Leeds lost grip on the second spot once again and they slipped into the third place. Since the last international break, Leeds have been in the top two only in three match days. Brentford, meanwhile, are set for mid-table mediocrity with the team 15th in the standings. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brentford were able to pick up a valuable point from rivals Millwall at the Den following a 1-1 draw. Thomas Frank’s team may have picked up just one win in the last seven matches, but they have been untroubled by relegation for several weeks.
Leeds United suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat against Wigan to cede advantage back to Sheffield United. This was the third defeat in the last six matches for Leeds, who took the lead against 10 men of Wigan and even missed a penalty.
Leeds and Brentford drew 1-1 with each other in the reverse fixture at Elland Road. Marcelo Bielsa’s team were able to grab a late goal to prevent a Brentford victory at Elland Road. The last game between these two clubs at Griffin Park witnessed Brentford securing a 3-1 victory. Our betting tips and predictions for the game would opt for a Brentford victory.

It is quite remarkable that Leeds have been unable to preserve a place in the top two even when Sheffield United have not been at their best. The manner of the defeat against Wigan can have a cascading effect on Leeds, who have been unable to win in any visit to Griffin Park. Brentford, who have lost only five games this season, have been quite decent of late. Our preview would pick a home win.

Brentford vs Leeds United draw odds: 3.60
Leeds United win odds: 1.95
Correct Score odds
Leeds United may have enjoyed plenty of the ball against Wigan, but the club were not clinical enough. It has been the story of Leeds in recent weeks, as they have averaged just over a goal per game over the last six matches. Brentford also possess a similar run, but they can overpower Leeds with a slender winning margin. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 win for the home team.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Brentford have been able to pick up over 1.5 goals in three out of the four games against Leeds United at home. There will be a crisis of confidence amongst Leeds after the loss against Wigan. Even though Bielsa’s team will have a response, it is only likely to result in a consolation goal for the visitors. Our total goals prediction would pick over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay’s three-game scoring sequence came to an end after the blank against Millwall. The striker, though, is the top scorer at Brentford by a huge margin after managing 23 goals and seven assists in the 43 league matches. Maupay scored the opener in the reverse fixture with Leeds and this has taken his tally to two goals in three matches against this opponent. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Neal Maupay.
