What better way to celebrate a move to a brand new stadium than to win promotion to the Premier League for the first time ever? This is the scenario that is well within Brentford’s grasp, Thomas Frank’s men enjoying some excellent results since the return from lockdown and lifting themselves to within a single point of the top two in the Championship.
Brentford Odds Slashed
Many are backing the West London outfit to pip West Bromwich Albion at the post and claim a top-two position at the end of the campaign, some bookies reacting by slashing the odds on them doing so to just 11/10. The Bees were as much as 4/1 to clinch an automatic promotion berth as recently as lost week, however they boosted their chances of reaching the Premier League courtesy of a 1-0 win over Preston North End yesterday. This was Brentford’s eighth win on the bounce and this form contrasts sharply with that of West Brom who have been utterly unconvincing of late.
Since the return from the break, Brentford have enjoyed thoroughly convincing wins-to-nil over the likes of Fulham (0-2), West Bromwich Albion (1-0), Reading (0-3) and Wigan Athletic (3-0) while they have also edged past Charlton Athletic (2-1) and Derby County (1-3). They have what appears to be a relatively easy run-in with clashes against Stoke City and relegation-bound Barnsley in their closing two outings.
The Bees have been the most heavily backed side in the Championship top-two betting market with a reported 55% of all bets being aimed in their direction over the past 24 hours. West Bromwich Albion are moving in the opposite direction in the betting market with their odds on finishing in the top two drifting from 1/10 just a few days ago to the current best price of 4/7. Leeds United appear to have effectively secured their passage into the Premier League with most firms going 1/66 that they win automatic promotion this season.
