Leyton Orient’s perfect league record of seven wins from seven matches will be broken by Griffin Park bullies Brentford, who rate as a stonking bet at 11/10 to continue their fantastic home record.
The Bees have only lost once at home since January and can boast the strongest home record of any team in the division from last season, losing just three of their 23 games and running out winners 14 times.
Since taking over as Brentford head honcho in 2011, manager Uwe Rosler has overseen major improvements at the west London club.
After finishing ninth in his first season, his management methods really reaped the rewards last year as he guided Brentford to within a whisker of promotion to the Championship.
On the final day of the season Bees striker Marcello Trotta missed a penalty in second-half stoppage time against Doncaster which would have guaranteed them second place and automatic promotion.
Instead, they had to settle for third and Rosler’s side then went on to lose the play-off final to Yeovil at Wembley.
Effects of that end of season collapse have been on show at the start of this campaign.
They’ve had a sticky first seven games, losing only once but scoring one or less goals in five of those matches and drawing games when their performances merited a victory.
With low scoring games in mind, backing both 1-0 (13/2) and 2-0 (9/1) home wins look a betting tactic with plenty of potential.
Griffin Park has once again been a fortress this season with wins over Sheffield United and Walsall.
Even their 0-0 draw against Carlisle was seen as a good result as they played for 30 minutes with ten men after defender Tony Craig was shown a straight red card for a professional foul.
This tricky encounter will be Orient’s biggest test away from Brisbane Road so far as all three of their away wins have come against teams currently in the bottom half of the division.
