Ipswich Town hope to avoid another pitfall in their disappointing 2018-19 campaign when they take on Brentford in the midweek action. This match at the Portman Road witnesses new manager Paul Hurst still struggling for any kind of a positivity. Brentford are flying in the early part of this campaign with the team now just one point behind table leaders Leeds. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Ipswich surrendered 2-0 against Hull City in the recent game and it marks the third defeat in the last four matches for Ipswich, who have only picked up three points this season.
Brentford were able to register a third consecutive victory in all competitions after beating Wigan Athletic 2-0 at home. Since the away defeat against Blackburn towards the end of August, Brentford have come up with this decent run.
The recent game between these two teams took place at the Griffin Park with the hosts managing a narrow 1-0 win. Ipswich were able to pick up a 2-0 win when the two teams last met each other at Portman Road. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Brentford are given a price of 1.83 while Ipswich are at a very long 4.75 despite playing at home. The probability of Ipswich ending their winless run this season is rather low considering that the team has been playing in a very bad shape over the last few weeks. Paul Hurst has a major job on his hands to try and turn around the campaign – even if it is just seven matches into the 18-19 campaign. Brentford may have picked up three consecutive wins, but they have all been at different Park. The club are yet to win an away match this season. Our preview would pick a draw.

Ipswich Town win odds: 4.75
Brentford win odds: 1.83

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This is a match between two teams that are not renowned for goals – especially in the case of Ipswich this season. Ipswich have been averaging only a shot on target in the recent matches and our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay’s form has been a crucial factor behind Brentford flying high in the league table. The 22-year-old has already come up with seven league goals – including a brace in his last two appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Neal Maupay.
