iBet: Rosler’s Bees Look Value At Odds Against
League One, Brentford V Peterborough, kick off 7.45pm
Back Brentford at 11/10
This looks on paper like a tight, top of the table clash but on the formbook Brentford look to have the upper hand. Uwe Rosler’s side matched table toppers Wolves in all departments at the weekend by all accounts, and have now gone seven games unbeaten. Their defence is looking rock solid with five successive clean sheets now and only five goals conceded in their last eight home games, and as long as striker Clayton Donaldson stays clear of injury, they are going to get goals because he is a proven performer at this level.
Peterborough may be third and a point ahead of tonight’s opponents, but they seem to be hitting the buffers, losing their last two and sitting a lowly 15th in the eight-match form guide with only five goals scored in that run. Brentford scored five in their last home game and look a value bet here at odds against. If you want the draw on your side you can lay Peterborough at 3.95 with Betfair.
Cue Card has been backed into favouritism for the King George following his stunning win against a very high class Betfair Chase field on Saturday. Colin Tizzard’s stable star recorded a very fast time of 6 min, 10.10 seconds for the 3m 1f contest, which included almost all the major contenders for next year’s Gold Cup. The best price you will get about Cue Card for the King George now is 11/4, and his price of 8/1 with several firms for the Cheltenham Gold Cup looks each way bet material given that he trounced the current 5/1 favourite Bob’s Worth at Haydock.
