The Betpal Football Bet of the Day returns on Boxing day for the League One clash between Colchester and Brentford. The hosts are struggling while the visitors are rampant – will the form be turned on it’s head?

Betting during the festive period can often be fraught with danger, but the price on an away win for Brentford looks too big and worth the risk. The Bees have won seven of their last nine, including all of the last four – where they faced four teams who sit in the top eight in the table. They have been beaten just once in their last sixteen and look extremely enticing at anything over even money. Colchester are at the other end of the form spectrum. They have lost seven of the last eight, including most recently at struggling Walsall. Any home success they have enjoyed was against weak opposition and they look up against it to stop the in-from Bees.
