Match Summary

One to Watch: Neal Maupay

Neal Maupay has made a wonderful start to the 2018-19 Championship campaign, with the Brentford forward netting seven times and registering three assists in five appearances.

The 22-year-old netted 12 times in the Championship last season, but is well on course to better that tally this term.

Maupay registered both of Brentford’s goals against Wigan Athletic at the weekend, and will fancy his chances of causing Ipswich Town problems in this match.

The number nine can be backed at 9/2 in the first goalscorer market with bet365, which should be considered as part of the best football betting tips.

Ipswich Town vs Brentford Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Ipswich are looking to win their first game of the new season against Brentford on Tuesday

Ipswich Town’s search for their first win of the 2018/19 Championship campaign will continue when they welcome Brentford to Portman Road on Tuesday night. Paul Hurst’s side have only collected three points from their seven league games this season to sit bottom of the table, and will welcome a Brentford side that currently lie second having collected 14 points from their seven matches this term. Ipswich are in desperate need of a win, and they recorded a 2-0 victory in the corresponding fixture last term, with Martyn Waghorn and Joe Garner on the scoresheet.

Ipswich are 7/2 to collect what would be a huge three points. As mentioned above in this Championship preview, the Trotters are still searching for their first win of the 2018-19 Championship campaign. Indeed, Ipswich have lost four and drawn three of their seven matches this term to sit bottom of the table. Hurst’s team have also only scored five times, and lost 2-0 at Hull City on Saturday afternoon. That said, all three of their fixtures at Portman Road this season have finished level, which should be considered when reviewing the potential football score predictions.

Brentford are 3/4 to continue their excellent start to the campaign. The Bees, who finished ninth in the Championship last term, currently sit second to Leeds United in the table. Indeed, Dean Smith’s side have won four and drawn two of their seven matches to collect 14 points, and will enter this match off the back of a 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic at the weekend. Brentford have won their last three matches in all competitions, which should be considered in this Championship preview.

The draw is available at 13/5 as part of our Championship predictions. As already mentioned, all three of Ipswich’s Championship matches this season have finished level, while Brentford have drawn two of their three on the road. That said, just one of the last five Championship meetings between the two teams has finished level, with Brentford winning three times, and Ipswich claiming a 2-0 success in the corresponding match at Portman Road in the early stages of the 2017-18 campaign.

Predicted Score: Ipswich Town 1 - 1 Brentford
