What Trueform says for Brentford vs Middlesbrough
Brentford took a while to get over the departure of Dean Smith but now entertain Middlesbrough after showing much more promise of late.
The Bees beat Millwall in their last Championship home game and have also impressed in defeat a couple of times on the road recently.
We feel 13/10 for a home win is fair value and that is our opening Brentford vs Middlesbrough prediction.
A Look At Brentford’s Betting Odds
Brentford ended an eight-match winless run when seeing off the Lions 2-0, with goals from Sergi Canos and Ollie Watkins giving Thomas Frank his first victory.
The Bees then played their part in a highly-entertaining London derby when going down 3-2 at QPR, having also shown up well in a 4-3 defeat at Preston last month.
Frank is hoping the international break will have given his side chance to freshen up and recover from some bumps and bruises.
He commented: “There are definitely things we are doing right, but we need to defend better.”
Second-placed Boro will provide a stern test, but Brentford have picked up 17 of their 21 points at home this term and can add three more to that tally.
A Look At Middlesbrough’s Betting Odds
Middlesbrough put in another well-drilled and disciplined display when beating Wigan 2-0 at the Riverside last time out.
Jordan Hugill opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 38 minutes and headed in his second from Martin Braithwaite’s cross just before the break.
Tony Pulis was full of praise for Hugill, who has worked hard to bounce back from a frustrating stint with West Ham.
“The great thing about him is that he’s got that little bit of steel about him,” said Pulis. “He’s a local lad and he’s desperate to do well for this football club.”
Boro are always hard to beat, but this is the kind of game where we feel they could just come unstuck against energetic and enthusiastic opponents.
Let’s finish off our Brentford vs Middlesbrough betting tips by taking 35/4 for a 2-1 home win.
QPR 3-2 BRENTFORD – Neal Maupay, Henrik Dalsgaard
