Match odds

Wigan are given odds of 4.00 to win the match, but it is difficult to back a team that has not been outstanding this season. Brentford are especially strong at Griffin Park and it would take a lot of effort from visiting teams to get a victory on this ground. It is not a surprise that Brentford have lost only two matches at home in 2018. The club seems to be back to winning ways after a strong performance against Nottingham Forest and our preview would go with a similar victory.

Brentford vs Wigan Athletic draw odds: 3.75

Wigan Athletic win odds: 4.20

Correct Score odds

Brentford are decent scorers – especially at Griffin Park. Wigan, meanwhile, have struggled for goals and have been quite inconsistent with regard to the same. Even though they created some decent openings against Rotherham, an away match is expected to produce more difficulties for scoring goals. At the same time, Brentford have not been great at keeping clean sheets. Our prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Brentford.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The game should witness a decent amount of goals with the two teams having enough opportunities to find the back of the net. Brentford are especially poor when it comes to shutting out the opposition by all means. This is clearly seen from the lack of more than just one clean sheet in the last five league outings. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds

Ollie Watkins has been a much more consistent performer for Brentford this season – even if he trails top scorer Neal Maupay by a couple of goals. Watkins is our pick in the first goalscorer prediction.
