Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Brentford's Premier League clash with Newcastle at the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday.

Brentford vs Newcastle (Saturday, 15:00)

Brentford will be looking to put the brakes on their nosedive down the Premier League table when they play host to Newcastle on Saturday afternoon.

Thomas Frank’s team have failed to win any of their last seven to-flight fixtures, picking up a paltry one point in the process, which means they now sit just three points above the basement zone.

Newcastle, on the other hand, have banked 12 points from that last 18 available to move out of the bottom-three and they will look to continue their resurgence when they roll into the capital this weekend.

Magpies backers will be offered a general 2/1 about Eddie Howe’s side collecting three points in West London on Saturday but I’m once again going to back each team to hit 3+ corners and each team to receive 10+ booking points at 5/6 (SkyBet).

Brentford haven’t been prominent corner takers this term, averaging a shade under 4.00 per -game, but that figure that increases ever so slightly to 4.38 when playing in front of their own supporters.

Meanwhile, Newcastle, who have been on an upward curve in recent weeks, are averaging 4.5 corners per 90 minutes this season, with the Toon covering the 3+ line 12 of their 14 outings under Eddie Howe's watch

Granted, neither of these sides have been particularly prolific corner takers this season, but their meeting on Saturday should deliver a decent degree of goalmouth action given that both clubs are desperately seeking points in their pursuit of Premier League survival.

With a closely-fought contest between two teams hovering above the trapdoor anticipated, I'll complete the Bet Builder with each side to receive 10+ booking points.

The Bees’ booking per-game average at this stage of the campaign sits at 1.69, while Newcastle are posting 2.46, a tally that increases to a league-high 2.82 when operating away from their north east headquarters.

It's also worth noting that experienced Premier League referee Mike Dean has been selected to take charge of this crunch clash, an appointment that immediately had my eyes drawn to the card markets.

The Wirral-born whistler, who has a reputation for being card-happy, is averaging 3.29 cards per outing in the Premier League this season, awarding each team a caution in 14 of the 17 top-flight fixtures he has taken charge of this term to date.

With all that in mind, as well as the fact the same Bet Builder has banked in four of Newcastle’s last five league games, supporting the same combination at the Brentford Community stadium stands out at 5/6 (Sky Bet).
