Match Summary

One to Watch: Neal Maupay

No player has scored more Championship goals than Neal Maupay this season, with the Brentford forward managing 10 in 11 appearances during an impressive start to the 2018-19 campaign.

The 22-year-old has a record of 94 minutes per goal in the second tier this term, and there is no question that Brentford will be looking to the Frenchman to produce in this match.

Maupay netted in Brentford’s last away Championship match at Leeds United, and will fancy his chances of causing Preston North End problems.

The striker is available at 4/1 in the first goalscorer market with bet365, which should certainly be considered as part of our Championship predictions.

Ben Pearson missed Preston’s 1-1 draw with Hull City at the weekend through suspension, but the midfielder is available for this match.

Louis Moult came off the bench to score Preston’s leveller against the Tigers, and that might have earned him a position in the starting XI.

Brentford will be without the services of centre-back Chris Mepham following his red card in Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat to Bristol City.

Moses Odubajo is therefore expected to come into the team, while there could also be a starting role for Kamohelo Mokotjo.

Preston North End vs Brentford Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Preston welcome Brentford to Deepdale in this midweek round of games

Preston North End will look to stretch their unbeaten run in the Championship to four matches when they welcome Brentford to Deepdale on Wednesday night. The Lilywhites moved out of the relegation zone with a point at Hull City at the weekend, and will be eyeing a second successive home Championship win having thumped Wigan Athletic at Deepdale last time out. Brentford impressed in the early weeks of the 2018-19 campaign, but the Bees will enter this match having gone six games without a win in the second tier of English football.

Preston are 2/1 as part of the best football betting tips. As mentioned above in this Championship preview, Alex Neil’s side had a tough start to the campaign, but seemed to have turned a corner in recent weeks. Indeed, the Lilywhites have taken five points from their last three matches, and put four unanswered goals past Wigan in their last home league fixture. That said, it is worth considering in this Championship preview that Preston have only beaten Brentford once in the league since September 2011.

Brentford are 29/20 to collect a much-needed three points. The Bees – now under the leadership of Thomas Frank following the departure of Dean Smith – are without a win in their last six in the Championship. The capital outfit will enter the match off the back of a 1-0 home defeat to Bristol City at the weekend, but have only lost one of their last three on the road. Brentford also have a strong recent record against Preston, winning eight of the last 11 meetings between the two teams in the league.

The draw is available at 5/2, which is worth considering as part of our football predictions. Indeed, the last Championship fixture between the two teams in February finished level, while Brentford have drawn three of their last four in the Championship. Preston have drawn two of their last three, meanwhile, and there is not too much between the two teams in terms of overall quality.

Predicted Score: Preston North End 1 - 1 Brentford
