Bees to win high-scoring affair in our League One Acca
Brentford host promotions rivals Wolves in the pick of this week’s League One action and despite a lead of just two points over Kenny Jacket’s side the hosts will be confident of a win.
The Ladbrokes news team is equally bullish and is backing the Bees to win in a game that sees at least three goals as part of this week’s third tier treble.
Add in wins for Peterborough and Leyton Orient at odds of almost 16/1 and a £10 stake could mean a decent return of £167.52.
Wolves have emerged as genuine title contenders after putting together a sequence of five consecutive wins.
However, hosts Brentford will draw inspiration from the visitors’ 10 games prior to that run, of which only two resulted in maximum points.
Wolves’ patchy away form – one win in their last five on the road – will also boot the confidence of Mark Warburton’s men who have now won 11 games on the bounce at Griffin Park.
With eight of those 11 games yielding at least three goals, a home win and over 2.5 strikes has to be the pick here.
Both sides go into this game having won just one of their last five games in all competitions.
However, with the Robins last beating Orient in 2009, Russell Slades’ men look the most likely to pick up three points at Brisbane Road.
Swindon have won just once in eight games away from the County Ground, while home form has been the bedrock of Orient’s push for promotion.
Nine wins and two draws from their last 15 games as hosts sees the east London outfit lie second in League One and with Brentford and Wolves potentially taking points off each other Orient have a chance to cement a top two spot.
Peterborough have put a five-game losing streak in the division firmly behind them with 10 points from their last five outings.
The Posh may have won just once in nine games away from London Road, but Darren Ferguson will remind his players of the seven-game unbeaten spell they managed on the road prior to these results to inspire confidence here.
Boro’s home form is a worry for any fans still harbouring designs on survival, with Graham Westley’s men winning just four of their last 15 at Broadhall Way.
Peterborough lost 1-0 in the reverse fixture and will be out for revenge as they look to solidify their position in the play-off places.
