When Brentford visited the Vitality Stadium in April it was billed as a potential warm-up for the Championship playoffs.
That’s exactly how things have panned out so Brentford will take great heart from their 1-0 win which was earned despite playing the vast majority of the second half with 10 men.
Jonathan Woodgate and his Bournemouth players have had time to learn the lessons from that defeat and the return of home fans will be a boost but we think Brentford can avoid defeat so recommend backing the draw at 12/5 with bet365*.

Bournemouth vs Brentford Betting Tips:
For the second season in a row, Brentford missed out on automatic promotion by just one place.
Thomas Frank and the Brentford recruitment department have done very well to maintain their ability to compete towards the top of the table despite regularly losing key players to teams in the Premier League.
The Bees’ attacking play rightly gets a lot of attention but they have also improved defensively over the course of the season and their three centre-backs, who get lots of cover from the wing-backs, will make life tough for Bournemouth’s impressive forward players.
Arnaut Danjuma and David Brooks will find they have only limited space in which to operate while the Bournemouth central midfielders may so focussed on their defensive duties that their creative abilities are somewhat blunted.
Even with the support of around 2,000 fans at the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth will put not losing ahead of going all out for the win so make sure to bet on under 2.5 goals at 8/11 with Unibet.

The return of fans should help home teams all around the country over the next week but it also means that away teams have the chance to play party poopers.
Brentford would love to make a fast start and dampen the atmosphere at Dean Court and they may well be able to get off to a strong start.
The fans will really make a difference should Bournemouth need a lift so consider a bet on Brentford/Draw Half Time/Full Time which is 16/1 with BetVictor.
