Brentford vs West Bromwich Albion – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
Brentford welcome West Bromwich Albion for the weekend’s league meeting at Griffin Park. The hosts recently suffered their first defeat of the month but they are still with an outside chance of making the playoff places with a seven-point difference. West Brom, meanwhile, are comfortably placed in the top six and this was recently aided by their first victory in four weeks.

Betting Tips for the game
Brentford saw a two-match winning streak come to an end following a 2-0 defeat to Sheffield United on the road. Oliver Norwood and David McGoldrick scored for Chris Wilder’s side, who played an hour with 10 men.
West Brom overcame a three-match winless run after a 3-0 triumph over Swansea City in their homeground. Skipper Chris Bunt was the pick of the players with a goal and an assist.
Brentford previously faced West Brom at the Hawthorns in December which ended in a 1-1 draw. The last meeting at Griffin Park was in the League Cup more than two decades ago and that finished 3-0 in Brentford’s favour. Our betting tips and predictions would back a Brentford win.

West Brom may have ended their losing streak in the midweek game against Swansea but they still face a testing challenge against Brentford on the road. The Capital side have amassed five straight wins in their stadium and this should provide them with the upper hand, as West Brom’s recent form has been unimpressive with just one win from four matches. Our preview is to go with a Brentford win.

Brentford vs West Brom draw odds: 3.75
West Brom win odds: 3.40
Correct Score odds
Brentford have looked a different proposition in their home patch and they have amassed a staggering 17 goals in the past five games at Griffin Park. In comparison, West Brom have fared decently on the road with eight goals in the last five away trips, but we don’t see them outscoring the hosts in what could be an open-sided affair. Our correct score prediction favours a 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Brentford’s attacking style of play at Griffin Park has witnessed an average of more than three goals in the past five matches. A similar high-scoring contest could be on the cards against West Brom, who have failed to score in just one away trip since early November. Our total goals prediction is to go for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay has been leading Brentford’s promotion push this term and he has netted 20 times in the Championship. Only two of those strikes have resulted from the past five appearances, but he remains a prime threat with an average of three shots per game. The Frenchman has also been their designated penalty taker with a 100% success rate. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Maupay.
