3 It's a long shot, but…

Scottish midfielder Lewis MacLeod has netted twice for Brentford this season and opened the scoring in the 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest a couple of weeks ago. He is 11/1 with bet365 to fire in the first goal of this game and that’s a good price for anyone looking to make football predictions for today.

One to Watch: Neal Maupay

The 22-year-old French striker has already banged in eight goals in just six games for the Bees so far this season.

The Brentford hitman fired himself onto the scoresheet 12 times last term and is set to smash that return this year.

Maupay has already scored doubles against Rotherham United, Aston Villa and Wigan, and he is 17/2 with bet365 to net himself another brace in this game.

Derby County vs Brentford Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Can Brentford keep up their good form as they face a tricky trip to face Derby County at Pride Park?

Derby’s last game was a goalless draw at home with Blackburn which came off the back of a 1-0 loss away to Rotherham. Before that, they had gone on a run of winning three league games and it’s worth pointing out in this Championship preview that they have four wins, three losses and one draw to their name so far. 

Brentford have had an excellent start to their league campaign, sitting in second place just three points behind leaders Leeds United. Their last outing was a 1-1 draw away to Ipswich and that came off the back of two wins on the bounce over Wigan and Nottingham Forest. 

Derby are 11/5 to win the match and won this fixture last season by three goals to nil. It is 33/1 for this game to end 3-0 for the home side. 

Brentford are 6/5 to take the three points but last beat Derby away from home way back in 1939, although just six games have been played since then. That game finished 2-1 and it’s 8/1 for them to win here with a similar scoreline. 

The draw is 12/5 and the last stalemate in this fixture was a goalless draw in 2016. It is 10/1 for another 0-0 draw here and that is a tempting price for anyone looking to make Championship predictions regarding this game.

Derby’s 19-year-old midfielder Mason Mount has got himself on the scoresheet twice this season and is 11/1 to score the first goal of the game. David Nugent is 11/5 to score anytime for Frank Lampard’s men and that is a decent offering for anyone looking to make football score predictions in this game. 

Brentford’s main hitman Neal Maupay, who has eight goals to his name this season, is 6/4 to score anytime and that is a sizzling offer for anyone looking to make football predictions.

Ollie Watkins has four league goals and is 6/1 to score the first goal of the game and that is another decent offering for anyone looking to make football score predictions regarding this match. 

Predicted Score: Derby County 0 - 1 Brentford
