Well i think the bookmakers have got this right to some extent. I think on recent form Brentford deserve to be favourites though maybe not quite as short as they are. Brentfords recent League One home form is as follows:

Brentford    1-2    Tranmere Rovers
Brentford    0-0    AFC Bournemouth
Brentford    3-2    Milton Keynes Dons
Brentford    2-0    Sheffield United
Brentford    2-1    Carlisle United

Three wins, one draw and one loss

Orient's recent League One away form is:

Doncaster Rovers    2-0    Leyton Orient
Yeovil Town    3-0    Leyton Orient
Bury    0-2    Leyton Orient
Portsmouth    2-3    Leyton Orient
Carlisle United    1-4    Leyton Orient

So Orient's recent away performances have seen 3 wins and two defeats. Those defeats coincided with the loss of top scorer Kevin Lisbie to injury. This is what im sure gives Brentford the edge in this game and makes them the favourites to win. However as i was saying, i'm not sure there is a great deal of value in backing Brentford at around 8/11, and in Dean Cox, Orient do have a midfielder capable of creating enough chances for whoever takes the place of Lisbie.

But the market that does interest me is the Over 2.5 goals. Currently 11/10 at the time of posting, there are reasons for thinking this is good value. The last time these two sides met at Griffin Park, Orient found themselves on the end of a 5-0 hammering. It is also noticeable that Orient have not been as strong defensively since losing Centre Half Nathan Clarke to injury. All things measured, i think the best that Orient can hope for here is a Draw, but in order to get that they are going to have to score at least twice (Which is entirely possible). If i was going to play the win market, the Draw is probably where the value lies, currently around the 3/1 mark. That of course opens up the possibility of looking at the correct score market for a result of 2-2 or 3-3 which are currently trading at 25 and 130 respectively.

However the safer option for me is just to back Over 2.5 at 11/10

Best of Luck if having a bet on this game

Brentford's FA Cup tie on Sunday is an absolutely massive West London derby for them and I can't believe it won't effect their performance tonight.

That is true hippie, huge game at the weekend and i suppose it could affect their performance and they may in fact rest a couple of players. On the other hand you may get those players who want to stake a claim for a place in the team and therefore the performance improves.

Good luck with that one Dragon. Bournemouth really should win that game though i do think their chance is reflected in the odds.

I think thats a fair bet Sevey, as one of my initial thoughts on the game was the possibility of a high scoring draw. Best of Luck thereHappy

Cheers Craigyboy, well pretty much got this game spot on and indeed the 25 that was available in the correct score market turned out to be a winner. Must say i was tempted by the 2-2 3-3 scorelines and i could kick myself a bit now.

Well i wish you the very best of luck with that one Dragon, havent had a look at that game yet though funnily enough, having beaten Bournemouth last weekend, you would expect them to be going there full of confidence.
