BRENTFORD vs MANCHESTER UTD – PICK
ENGLAND PREMIER LEAGUE
In the season opener, Brentford came from two goals down to draw (2-2) in Leicester. According to the match stats, the Foxes had more than 55% possession and 5-3 shots on target. However, if we just consider the xG (expected goals) there was nothing between (1.22 vs 1.18) them.
For the record, the owner of Brentford is Matthew Benham. The Oxford graduate is also the founder of Smart Odds, a data-driven Sports modelling company which specialises in betting. It is fair to suggest that everything is about the mathematical edge with Benham. That’s how he regularly beats bookmakers and gets his football teams promoted. Since Benham acquired the Bees, they were promoted from the 4th tier to the Premiership!
After a successful first season in the top flight, Benham invested another €47 million in player trades. New signings Keane Lewis-Potter (€19M), Aaron Hickey (€16.5M) and Mikel Damsgaard (€15M) came at a price. Also, the club were quick to snap up Ben See and Thomas Strakosha (Lazio) for free. Finally, Mads Bidstrup came from Midtjylland.
For today’s game, Thomas Frank is still missing three players, namely Kristoffer Ajer, Sergi Canos and Ethan Pinnock. Nevertheless, the same eleven players are available, and the coach would have been impressed with his last-round substitutes.
Manchester United lost their season opener against Brighton. In a post-match interview, the new coach Erik Ten Hag said he was very disappointed in his players.
Despite doing slightly better on the xG, the only goal that the Red Devils scored was an own goal. Senior players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw were disappointing. Moreover, it was mystifying that the coach started Eriksen in the role of the number 9, and it didn’t work!
The visitors are still without Anthony Martial, Brandon Williams, Mason Greenwood, Facundo Pellistri and Victor Lindelof. The coach has a decision to make with Ronaldo, will he start ahead of Scott McTominay? Raphael Varane and Malacia would be two other starting options, neither are unlikely to improve the team.
In conclusion, the hosts will be up for a big name coming to town. To make a long story short, this looks like the perfect time to meet a disjointed opponent!
BET: BRENTFORD +0.5 (double chance)
