Brentford v Leicester betting tips: Foxes seek clean sheet
Preview and odds for Sunday’s Premier League clash
The Bees and the Foxes do battle in the Premier League so we examine the odds to find some Brentford v Leicester betting tips.
Brentford lost at home to Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend while Leicester beat Manchester United at the King Power Stadium before a thrilling 4-3 win at Spartak Moscow in the Europa League.
Sunday’s match, which takes place at the Brentford Community Stadium, kicks off at 2pm.
Brentford v Leicester match odds
Brentford have made a fine start to life in the Premier League and are comfortably in ninth place in the table, having won three and drawn three of their eight games.
Both of Brentford’s defeats have come in home games (against Brighton and Chelsea) while five of their seven goals conceded in the competition have come at the Brentford Community Stadium.
Their 1-0 reverse to Chelsea was tinged with regret at not taking chances, although Blues stopper Edouard Mendy was a big reason why the Bees failed to score as he pulled off a string of fine saves.
Brentford have beaten Arsenal and also held Liverpool to a draw at home while overcoming Wolves and West Ham away.
Thomas Frank’s side more than matched the European champions, who created very little aside from Ben Chilwell’s outstanding strike to win the game.
Brentford are 8/5 to win in the Brentford v Leicester betting tips.
Following their 4-2 victory against Manchester United last time out, Leicester are looking to pick up consecutive league wins for the first time since April and are 17/10 to do so.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have won their last four Premier League away games against promoted sides, by an aggregate score of 11-2, and will be buoyed by their midweek victory in Europe.
Leicester are currently 11th in the table, a point behind Brentford having won three and drawn two of their eight games. The draw is available at odds of 9/4.

Brentford v Leicester head-to-head
Brentford are winless in their last seven meetings with Leicester in all competitions (D1 L6) since a 3-2 victory in the second tier in March 1953.
Their last meeting, in the FA Cup at Brentford in January, resulted in a 3-1 win for City.
Leicester have won each of their last five away games against Brentford in all competitions.
It is 1/2 Leicester win or draw the game on the Double Chance market in the Brentford v Leicester betting tips.
Nine of the last 13 meetings between the teams yielded three goals or more and the odds for that to happen again on Sunday are 19/20.
Brentford v Leicester key battles
Leicester have an ongoing defensive problem.
They have conceded twice in each of their last four league games and have not managed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last 11 away Premier League matches.
With a further three going into the back of their net in Moscow, it is 19/5 Leicester win to nil in the Brentford v Leicester betting tips.
However, the Foxes have scored in each of those 11 games also, with those matches averaging 3.3 goals per game. It is 21/5 the Foxes win but concede.
The Bees will fancy their chances of breaking down Leicester.
Bryan Mbeumo was unlucky to hit the post twice against Chelsea and the Frenchman could be problematic for a less-than-rigid Leicester rearguard. He is 9/4 to score at any time.
