Brentford vs Bournemouth | Odds
*Odds correct as of 20:45 on August 31
After three games of the new Premier League season there are six teams still unbeaten in the division, one of those being Brentford. However, Brentford’s unbeaten start is a little different to the rest. The Bees opened their third Premier League campaign with a 2-2 draw against Tottenham and then won their second London derby, beating Fulham 3-0. However, the third London derby of the season ended level as Brentford were held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace. So, it’s two draws and one win from three, with Brentford currently ninth. They also needed penalties to beat Newport County in the EFL Cup.
Bournemouth, meanwhile, are one of five sides still chasing their first victory of the Premier League season. The Cherries are the highest-ranked of the winless bunch, owing to their one point, picked up on the opening weekend. Following on from their 1-1 draw against West Ham, Bournemouth have lost to Liverpool and Tottenham, obviously falling to a tough fixture list. There was a victory in midweek through, but Bournemouth did need an injury-time winner to beat Swansea 3-2.
