thumbnail Hello,

The Bees host the Gills on Friday night looking to jump to the top of League One, with our tipster backing the home side to net at least three goals

Brentford have been fantastic this season and, despite a recent managerial change, the Bees have kept up their form and currently sit in second position in League One.

They welcome Gillingham who have also changed managers recently. The Gills were promoted from League Two last season and currently sit in mid-table. When the two sides met earlier this season, Brentford were luck to come away from Priestfield with a point after a late goal denied Gillingham all three.

The Bees come into this match in great form, unbeaten in their last seven, winning their last nine home games on the spin. A win would take them above Leyton Orient and to the top of League One, with Paddy Power pricing that outcome at 2/5 (1.40).

Gillingham have been unable to find consistent results of late, winning two, losing two and drawing once in their last five games. The Gills have struggled on the road this season, losing nine of their 13 games away this campaign, including four of their last five. Paddy Power don't give them huge hope in this fixture, pricing them at 6/1 (7.00). The same firm prices the draw at 7/2 (4.50).

With the Brentford outright result slightly too skinny to back and the handicap market not appealing, it's worth looking at the total goals market for a bet that stands out.

Mark Warburton's side have been sensational in front of goal at home, netting three or more goals in five of their last seven home games. With Peter Taylor's men conceding three or more in three of their last four away matches, it's certainly worth backing home goals.

With Paddy Power pricing Brentford to score three or more at 7/5 (2.40), it's certainly worth backing this fantastic price.
