Fulham and Brentford draw is Bet of the Day for 13/03/20

A Fulham and Brentford draw in Friday’s West London derby looks well worth a wager, based on recent history and current form.

Each of the last three encounters at Craven Cottage have ended with the spoils being shared.

Brentford have also drawn four of their last six matches, including against Championship leaders Leeds United.

They are next to hosts and neighbours Fulham in the table, with the West London pair occupying third and fourth place.

With nine games of the regular Championship season left, both are aiming to secure berths in the play-offs in the coming weeks.

Fulham have drawn three of their last six games, so – in a derby that could well be cagey – they may do so again.

Scott Parker has done a fine job since taking them down from the Premier League and they are closest to top two Leeds and West Bromwich Albion.

Why backing a Fulham and Brentford draw makes sense

Brentford have scored more goals and conceded fewer than their hosts, yet – Sheffield Wednesday at home apart – they’ve not won many games lately.

Thomas Frank plays attractive football with the Bees which makes them a threat here.

Taking all that into account, backing a Fulham and Brentford draw at odds of 23/10 with Coral appeals.

There are players on both sides having fine seasons, so they could end up cancelling each other out.

Aleksandar Mitrovic leads the Championship goal charts with the Fulham and Serbia centre forward scoring 23 times in the league to date.

Right behind him, however, is Brentford’s Ollie Watkins on 22. With such prolific scorers on show, the threats are obvious.

The last three meetings at Craven Cottage have all been score draws, so that is another option to consider at a standout 7/2 with BetVictor.

Bet of the Day: 23/10 with Coral, Fulham and Brentford draw in the Championship.
