Preston welcome Brentford to Deepdale for the midweek Championship clash. Preston have managed to erase their poor form at the start of the season with a three-match unbeaten run but they are just ahead of the drop zone on goal difference. Brentford have been dropping down the table since mid-September and a six-match winless run sees them three points adrift of the playoffs. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Preston come into the midweek game following a 1-1 draw against Hull City on the road. Louis Moult saved the day for the visitors after bagging a vital equaliser in the 93rd minute of the game. They are now unbeaten in three matches with one win and two draws.
Brentford went winless for the sixth game on the bounce as they suffered a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Bristol City. Niclas Eliasson netted a late 89th-minute winner for Bristol after Brentford played with 10 men for the final 30 minutes.
Preston’s previous meeting versus Brentford was at Griffin Park earlier in the year where they played out a 1-1 draw. The last encounter at Deepdale saw Brentford come up triumphs by a 3-2 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a share of the spoils.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Draw at 3.50 [/bet_tip_now]
Preston are priced at 3.50 for a victory while Brentford are 2.90 for the same. Preston have found some form over the past three matches but their defence has still remained vulnerable with just two clean sheets since the campaign. We are backing Brentford to find a way into the midweek game, though a victory appears far from certain with their winless run on the road. Our preview anticipates a score draw.

Preston North End win odds: 2.90
Brentford win odds: 2.50
Correct Score odds
Preston have scored twice in each of the previous five home matches but they have managed just five points in those games. Brentford have struggled on the road with just three points coming from their previous five outings. Both defences have been found out during this period and neither side will want to give away in terms of goals. Our correct score prediction fancies a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Preston and Brentford have generally played out high-scoring contests and there has been just one league game since 2015 where less than three goals have been involved. Both sides are in need of points owing to their poor run of form of late. Our total goals prediction is to go with less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Callum Robinson has been Preston’s leading scorer this term with five goals across all competitions. Among those, four of his strikes have come in the Championship with an average of every other shot on target. He has enjoyed decent success against Brentford with a goal and an assist from six appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Robinson.
