Brentford-Yeovil Town Betting Preview: Glovers to come out on top in a high scoring match

After heartbreak on the final day of the season, Uwe Rosler's men have a second bite at promotion, with our expert tipping goals and a 21/10 value bet
The final day of the season in League One caught everyone’s imagination, with Brentford somehow failing to grab an automatic promotion spot, missing a last-minute penalty and then conceding a goal straight away. Luckily for the Bees, their penalties were spot on in the play-off semi-final and they now face a Yeovil Town side who have surprised many this season for a spot in the Championship.

Although Brentford conceded another late goal in their play-off clash, Uwe Rosler’s men made in through to Wembley after dramatically missing out on promotion on the last day of the season. The Bees saw off a Swindon side on penalties and come into this match at heavy favourites for the win. Paddy Power price them at 5/4 (2.25) to win the match.

Gary Johnson’s Yeovil Town have been the surprise package of League One this season, finishing fourth in the league, only two points behind Brentford. The Glovers had to face a strong Sheffield United side in their semi-final, but overcame a 1-0 deficit from the first leg to score late in a 2-0 win at Huish Park.

Johnson’s men are underdogs for this clash, with Paddy Power pricing them at 21/10 (3.10) to win the match and gain promotion in 90 minutes. The same firm has the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

Both teams haven’t struggled for goals this season, with Yeovil the third highest scorers in the league, with Brentford not far behind. The over 2.5 goal market is a fantastic price at evens (2.00) with Paddy Power, and considering combined, these two sides have averaged scoring three goals in their last eight matches, it’s tough to ignore this price.

For those looking for more value, backing the underdogs Yeovil at 21/10 (3.10) is certainly worth investing in. The Glovers have come out on top in both of the fixtures between the two sides this season, winning 3-1 away and 3-0 at home. With Johnson’s men winning five or their last eight, the momentum is there and the price is certainly worth backing.
