Slipping back towards the Championship danger zone, Huddersfield Town have taken just one point from their last four matches.
And it won’t be easy to arrest the slump given they come up against a Brentford outfit arriving at the John Smith’s Stadium on the back of five straight wins.
Nevertheless, Chris Powell’s men are narrow favourites at 6/4 with Ladbrokes while the Bees are a 2/1 shot at Stan James and bet365 post 5/2 against the pair sharing the spoils.
Punters fancying the latter can also tackle BetVictor’s 13/2 for it to finish 1-1.
The same firm price a score draw at 17/5 and it’s 9/2 via Winner.com for the two to be inseparable at the end of each half.
Home supporters, of course, will wish to back their team.
But some will understandably exercise caution by either siding with them at 2/5 (betway) to avoid defeat or heading to Stan James’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market, where Town are a 4/6 chance.
More optimistic fans will note the visitors do their best work at Griffin Park and tend to be less consistent on their travels, so there could be money for bet365’s 3/1 about a Town triumph by a one-goal margin.
More accurately, BetVictor chalk Powell’s charges up at 9/1 to edge it 2-1 in a fixture that’s 8/13 (Skybet) to include at least a goal from both teams and Paddy Power offer 3/1 about Town holding a lead at both the break and full-time.
Bet365, meanwhile, mark 6/1 against Grant Holt grabbing the opening goal, which is 5/6 via Stan James to come from any Town player.
And at the other end, the bold can risk a flutter on a clean sheet for the home side (12/5, William Hill).
