Brentford heavily backed for Premier League promotion

According to our traders, over four in five bets on tonight’s Championship play-off final favour Brentford to get promoted to the Premier League.

We can reveal a staggering 80.6% of punters have backed Thomas Frank’s men to win promotion from the Championship, with 19.4% of bets being placed on Scott Parker’s Fulham.

The Bees are hoping to make history in their bid to reach the top-flight of English football for the first time since 1947 when they take on their local rivals at Wembley.

Despite Fulham having been a regular fixture in the Premier League over the past couple of decades, they head into the match as 13/10 underdogs.

Both sides were only separated by goal difference in the Championship table and will be on a high after beating Swansea City and Cardiff City in their respective semi-final ties.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Brentford have already seen one chance at promotion come and go but clearly punters don’t think they’ll squander another opportunity.”
