Betting Tips for the game
Leeds produced a fine display and picked up a 1-0 win over Hull City in the midweek Yorkshire derby. This was only the second win in five games for Marcelo Bielsa and his team.
Brentford picked up a 1-1 draw with Birmingham at Griffin Park, as the club’s winless run stretched to five games in all competitions. The last win for the London outfit was against Wigan in the middle of September.
The recent game between Leeds and Brentford produced a 1-0 victory for the former at Elland Road. Lee Cooper came up with the only goal of the game in the first half. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Leeds United.

Brentford are at a price of 3.10 to win the match. However, it is difficult to back a team that has been on a five-game winless streak and devoid of confidence. Despite dominating against Birmingham in terms of possession, Brentford were unable to find a way past Gary Monk’s team. Leeds, meanwhile, may have just scored once against Hull City but Bielsa’s team produced a delightful attacking performance with 70% of the ball. Our preview would back a win for Leeds.

Leeds United vs Brentford draw odds: 3.70
Brentford win odds: 3.10
Correct Score odds
Leeds scored with their only shot on target in the win over Hull City but there were plenty of excellent buildup moments from Marcelo Bielsa’s team. The club may lack the confidence to convert those half chances into goals, as they have managed just two wins in five. However, Brentford are also in a similar position and are on the road. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Leeds 1-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
It is quite incredible that just one game in the last four meetings between these two teams at Elland Road has produced over 1.5 goals. Such has been the tight and defensive nature of this contest over the recent years that no deviations can be expected when these two teams meet each other for Saturday’s early kick-off. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The absence of players like Kemar Roofe still leaves Leeds United short of options. After the goal against Hull City, Tyler Roberts has taken his tally to 3 goals in five games this season. He has scored these goals in his last four appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Roberts.
