Definitely not a fixture you’d be marking on your calendar as a ‘must watch’ at the start of the season but Leicester v Brentford has the potential to set up as a cracking game of football. Two straight wins for Brentford has given them a vital cushion above the Premier League’s bottom three and they can go level on points with Leicester and essentially secure their Premier League status again for next season with a victory. All the ingredients for a ding dong battle, we hear you say.

Let’s get into the stats then and find the four Best Bets for a value-stuffed Bet Builder.
Sunday 2pm: Leicester v Brentford
Brentford have scored six in their last five with Ivan Toney bagging seven goals in his past five appearances – good form, Ivan! Leicester’s home form has been solid too, going unbeaten in their last five. We know Leicester will have chances with the likes of Maddison, Barnes, Tielemans all capable of creating and scoring and with the dangling carrot of another season in the Premier League if they secure three points here, you’ve got to think Brentford will be giving it socks. Both teams to score looks a good play here.
Hitting home the above argument, Thomas Frank will be firing Brentford up with the allure of Premier League security within their grasp. Leicester played on Thursday night and we’re not fans of backing a team who play midweek in Europe. You always risk that European hangover. Brentford will be the fresher team having eight days off since their last game against Burnley and that’s enough to give the nod to the double chance here.

The Dane has only played two and a half games for Brentford and already has an assist to his name. He’ll be getting fitter for every appearance and with Brentford very astute on set pieces, this lends itself very nicely to Eriksen playing a part. The 11/4 on offer is worth taking.
Brentford average 2 cards per game away from home with Leicester a bit more self-disciplined averaging 1.1 at home. We expect there will be a bit of bite to this game with what’s on offer and with that, over 2.5 cards looks a shoe in. if you want to juice up the odds, take the 3.5 cards option.
All four of these picks in a Bet Builder will give you juicy odds of 9/1.
