Brentford v Fulham Betting Tips: Can the Bees hold their nerve to seal promotion?
Odds and preview ahead of the Championship play-off final
Our traders make Brentford 23/20 favourites to win in 90 mins, with Fulham at 5/2. It’s 21/10 that it finishes level and goes to extra time.
Brentford are 23/10 to beat Fulham to nil for the third game running, while 4/7 says we see Under 2.5 Goals with so much at stake.
As for goalscorers, Ollie Watkins is 7/2 to open the scoring or 17/10 anytime. Bryan Mbeumo and Said Benrahma are both 21/10 to get on the scoresheet.
If Aleksandar Mitrovic is fit, the Championship’s top scorer is 9/5 to score anytime for Fulham. If not, Scot Parker could look to Aboubakar Kamara and Bobby Decordova-Reid – they’re both 11/4 to net.
There’s reportedly £170 million on the line tonight as Brentford and Fulham go head-to-head at Wembley for a place in the Premier League.
There’s only a few miles between these sides. And goal difference was all that separated them in the table. We could be in for a very tight game, but Brentford will feel this is their time to go up.
Thomas Frank’s exciting side only just missed out on automatic promotion on the final day. And with the likes of Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma attracting interest from top-flight clubs, victory could be their best hope of keeping the team together.
They look to have momentum too, having turned around a run of three successive losses with their convincing 3-1 semi-final second-leg victory over Cardiff City to book their place in the final.
However, all eight of their previous appearances in the play-offs have ended in defeat. Can they get over the last hurdle this time?
In contrast, Fulham know exactly what it takes to go through the lottery of the play-offs and emerge with the winning ticket. They won at this stage two years ago to seal promotion.
But Brentford have had the better of meetings between the two sides this term. Scott Parker’s side lost both games, failing to score in either of them. And with doubts over the fitness of top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic and Neeskens Kebano, the Whites could be up against it here.
Will this be the start of a new chapter for Brentford? Or can Fulham regain their seat at the top table? It’s all set up for a huge West London derby.
