Brentford-Leyton Orient Betting Preview: Expect goals galore at Griffin Park

The O's travel across London looking to extend their lead at the top of League One with Uwe Rosler's men standing in their way, and our tipster is backing goals
Leyton Orient have been the team to fire out of the blocks in League One this season, winning every single game to date. They sit two points above Peterborough in second and have the a chance to open up a real gap early on.

Russell Slade's men face a Brentford side who narrowly missed out on automatic promotion last season, losing to Doncaster in a thriller on the final day before faltering in the playoffs, so they will prove a real test for the leaders this evening.

Orient come into this match having taken apart Notts County last time out. The O's are scoring for fun at the moment and a Kevin Lisbie-inspired performance lead them to a 5-1 win at home. This followed victories against the likes of Port Vale, Colchester United and Stevenage, meaning they are the only side in the Football League still to have a perfect record which reads played seven, won seven.

Slade's side have netted an impressive 27 goals in their 10 competitive matches this season, their only loss coming after extra time against Hull City in the Capital One Cup.

Bet365 price the away side at a generous 14/5 (3.80) to keep up their 100 per cent winning record in the league with another victory.

Brentford sit in 10th position in League One, with 12 points from their first seven matches. The Bees have only lost one league game though, albeit Bradford did come out convincing winners on that occasion in a 4-0 victory. Despite this result, Uwe Rosler's side have looked solid in their attempt to gain promotion this season.

A hard-fought 4-3 triumph away at Tranmere last weekend put them back to winning ways and should set them up for Monday evening's match. Bet365 price the home side at 11/10 (2.10) to take all three points. The same firm price the draw at 5/2 (3.50).

Both sides have been involved in some high-scoring affairs of late, so it's certainly worth taking advantage of the over 2.5 goals at a more than generous 21/20 (2.05) with Bet365.

This bet would have landed easily in Orient's last four matches, with the scorelines being 5-1, 3-2, 3-1 and 2-1. It's the same story in Brentford's matches, with this bet paying out in their last three, which included a 5-3 and a 3-4.

For those looking for more value, Leyton Orient to score over 1.5 team goals is a fantastic 9/4 (3.25) with Bet365. This bet would have paid out in eight of Orient's 10 competitive matches so far this season, as well as all bar one of their League One matches.

With Brentford without their number one goalkeeper David Button and having conceded 10 goals in three games, it's certainly worth investing in this price.
