Both these sides have consistently been in the playoff picture, but it is actually the Cherries of Bournemouth who are the form team coming into this one. Jonathan Woodgate’s side have now won seven games on the bounce, pushing them to within eight points of Watford and they will surely be playoff favourites if they can keep the run going today.
It is also mathematically possible for them to catch Watford with three games to play including this one.
Brentford came so close to promotion last season, losing in the playoff final to Fulham, and Thomas Frank has done another superb job at the helm. Its now eight games unbeaten for the Bees, with the side struggling to take maximum points – its now six draws in their last eight games.
Momentum is everything in football however, and its hard to see past another Bournemouth win here today.
The home win certainly appeals and the 11/8 is a price we’re happy to take.
