8 points Brentford beat Oldham (UK football league 1) @2.2 Ladbrokes
Oldham take on Brentford this weekend and im going for the in form Brentford team to win here.
Oldham are in the bottom 6 and at home have played 13 games winning 3, drawing 3 and losing 7 and if you look at the games they have played against the top 8 teams they have played 3 games and have lost all 3 (Tranmere beat them 1-0, Swindon beat them 2-0, and Doncaster beat them 2-1) so they struggle to get points out of the top teams. They have scored more than 1 goal in just 3 of their home games and have failed to score on 4 occasions and although they havent been demolished in a home game yet they do have a habit of conceding goals against the top teams.
Brentford have been on a great run recently and if you look at their last 8 games they are undefeated with 5 wins and 3 draws and with 12 goals scored and just 5 goals conceded they have moved into 4th place in the league and focusing on the automatic promotion places. They have only lost 3 games all season (home and away) and although they drew a lot of their away games at the start of teh season they have been winning most their games recently.
This bet is really about Brentfords recent form and i think they will maintaiin that form against an Oldham side who have struggled against the top teams.
