There is just the one English Premier League match taking place on Monday day night and it features Brentford up against Liverpool. We take a look at the game from a betting angle.
A reminder that the long-term English Premier League markets are updated continuously and you can click here for the latest betting in the Title Race as well as markets such as the Golden Boot and to be Relegated.
Brentford are currently 10th on the table and are undefeated in their last 5 matches. They beat West Ham 2-1 on the road last time out and their last home game was a 2-2 draw against Tottenham. Overall at home this season Brentford have won 3 and drawn 4 of their 8 matches and they have drawn their last 3 home games.
Looking at the goals stats, 10 of the 17 Brentford matches would have seen you collect a profit had you backed over 2.5 goals and this drops to a 50% strike rate in their home matches.
Liverpool are 6th on the table after a run of 4 successive victories, most recently beating Leicester 2-1 at home thanks to 2 Leicester own goals. They were in good nick the match before that beating Aston Villa 3-1 on the road back on Boxing Day. Liverpool’s form on the road is what has let them down this season and they have only won 2 of 7 matches drawing 2 and losing 3. They have won their last 2 away games though.
11 of the 16 Liverpool matches have had 3 goals or more in them this season and the last 5 Liverpool games have all delivered profits for over 2.5 goal backers.
Brentford and Liverpool played to a thrilling 3-3 draw in this fixture last season with Liverpool winning the reverse fixture 3-0 at home.

Suggested Bet: Over 3.5 goals at 14/10
The moment I saw this fixture I thought this is going to be a game for goals and although over 2.5 goals is priced a little bit short for me at 4/7 I am prepared to take the bigger price that we get 4 goals or more in the game. This would have arrived in 2 of Liverpool’s last 3 matches, only 50% of Brentford’s last 4 games and of course this fixture last season delivered 6 goals.
There are plenty of other markets to get involved in and another bet I fancy at a shorter price is both teams to score, YES, at 7/10.
You can also get odds on who will score the first goal, as well as the correct score where Brentford 0 Liverpool 2 is trading as a 7/1 favourite.
