Derby County entertain high-flying Brentford at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon. Frank Lampard’s side have not won since their return from the international break and they have witnessed them drop below the final playoff spot on goal difference. On the contrary, Brentford are right in the playoff mix and their unbeaten run in September sees them within three points off leaders Leeds United. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Derby had to settle for their second winless game on the bounce as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Blackburn Rovers. Lampard’s side had nearly two-thirds of the possession in the game but they failed to test the keeper on regular intervals.
Brentford, though, extended their unbeaten league run to three matches as they played out a 1-1 draw against Ipswich Town. Prior to that, they had won two games on the bounce in their home turf.
Derby previously faced Brentford at Pride Park in February 2018 whereby they picked up a comfortable 3-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a share of the spoils.

Derby are offered odds of 3.20 for the win while Brentford are 2.30 for the same. Derby have gone through a lean spell without victories in two matches and much of this has come about from their inability to find the scoresheet. Nevertheless, they should at least pick up a point against Brentford, who despite being third on the table are yet to secure an away triumph. Our preview expects a draw.

Correct Score odds
In the previous five meetings at Pride Park, Derby have outclassed Brentford with three victories and two draws in the process. Even then, we are anticipating a tight encounter this weekend with Brentford proving a tough team to beat on their travels despite their winless run. Two of Brentford’s four away trips have finished with a 1-1 score and our correct score prediction fancies the same.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Derby have kept three clean sheets in their four home outings this term and this has resulted in just one game witnessing over two goals. On the contrary, Brentford have not possessed a similar defensive record on the road but they have followed a similar trend with the majority of their matches producing a maximum of two goals. Our total goals prediction anticipates less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay has been in blistering form for Brentford this term and he has already notched eight goals from just six appearances. Moreover, six of those have come from his previous four matches and he has netted the first goal in each of those. His scoring prospects may also be bettered this weekend given he is the club’s designated penalty-taker. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Maupay.
