Bees hard to bank on
Brentford have drawn their last three games at Griffin Park and punters are advised to dodge the Bees in the match betting for this Tuesday’s crucial Championship fixture against Cardiff.
Thomas Franke’s side failed to capitalise on Watford’s defeat at Luton at the weekend as they were held to a goalless stalemate by Millwall here, and a run of five draws from six has likely inflicted terminal damage on their automatic promotion bid.
Brentford are eight points shy of the Hornets with a game in hand, though they have just five matches left to play. It seems highly unlikely that they will close the gap and confidence in the Bees is low from a betting perspective after a string of under par performances.
Franke’s charges edged a 2-3 thriller when these sides last met in December, but we’re predicting a cagier affair this time around with the hosts failing to fire of late.
Under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Brentford’s last five games including their last three starts at Griffin Park, while less than three goals have also been netted in four of Cardiff’s last six and in four of the Bluebirds’ last five outings on the road.
That’s our recommended bet for this Tuesday night encounter and we’re also tipping up a 1-1 draw, which would surely put a dead end to the hosts’ fading automatic promotion aspirations.
