Brentford vs West Brom Match Preview
Brentford lost 2-0 at Sheffield United in midweek despite playing opponents who were down to ten-men for almost 55 minutes. The result means they have slid to 14th and seven points off the top six though they have a game in hand.
At Griffin Park, the Bees have been impressive winning their last five and six of their last seven. They have netted an impressive 17 goals from these matches while conceding just four times.
West Brom put a three-game winless run behind them with a 3-0 defeat of Swansea in midweek under caretaker boss Jimmy Shan. They are nine points behind Leeds in second and six above Middlesbrough in third.
Away from the Hawthorns, the Baggies have won four of their last five though did crash 4-0 at Leeds in their previous road trip. Jay Rodriguez has netted three times in his last six on his travels.
This is a tricky game to call as I don’t like to oppose Brentford at home given how they are playing at the ground. I do think West Brom though played with a purpose in midweek and I am not rushing to take them on either.
It might pay to be contrary and take this game to go the opposite way to what bookmakers are thinking. Over 2.5 goals is so short so I like the idea of going under. Jimmy Shin saw his side keep a clean sheet in midweek with Sam Johnstone in goal in inspired form.. They are stubborn opponents on the road and as such I will take a chance on lower goals and on them on restricting the hosts.
