Brentford to beat Reading @ 1.75
Brentford have come racing out of the blocks since the season restart, beating promotion rivals Fulham and West Brom in consecutive fixtures, and without conceding a goal. The Bees are now just five points off a top 2 spot and can close that gap to two points tonight, heaping the pressure on West Brom who do not play until tomorrow.
Brentford have a run of three games against teams that are hovering around midtable obscurity and that begins tonight with a trip to Reading. Mark Bowen’s side have picked up just one point from their two matches since the restart as they go through the motions of playing out the remainder of this season.
On form and performances alone I’d be happy to back Brentford here, but when you add into the mix what both teams have to play for then this becomes a standout bet of the day for me.
