Punters are lumping on Ipswich Town to beat Brentford and make it five wins in a row to start the season at Portman Road this afternoon (3pm).

The Blues have been on fire since the 2017/18 campaign kicked off, seeing off Birmingham, Luton, Barnsley and Millwall and recording their first four straight win start to a season since their famous promotion year of 1999/2000.

And, according to Oddschecker, more than 70% of bets laid on the match this afternoon have gone on Town to win, at best odds of 19/10.

A Brentford win, at 6/4, has attracted just over 20% of bets, while only 8% fancy a draw at 3-1.

Joe Garner is once again favourite to open the scoring at 5-1, along with Brentford’s Spanish star Jota.

Martyn Waghorn, who bagged a brace in the 4-3 win at Millwall, is second favourite at 6-1, with David McGoldrick proced at 13/2.
