Betting Tips for the game
Brentford managed to end a three-match losing run on Monday night after they secured a 1-1 draw against West Brom on the road. Lewis MacLeod scored in injury-time to help Brentford share the spoils.
Swansea suffered a third-straight league defeat after succumbing to a 2-1 loss on the road to Derby County. Harry Wilson continued his good scoring form for the Rams with a first-half brace.

Swansea are priced at 3.60 for the three points while Brentford are 2.05 for the same outcome. Swansea have gone through a lean patch in the Championship with three winless games but Brentford have not excelled either with just the solitary point in this period. Moreover, they have succumbed to defeats in their last two home matches and they will be determined to avoid another loss. Our preview predicts a share of the spoils.

Correct Score odds
Brentford come into this game with just one point from their previous four matches, although they have found the scoresheet in each of those games. Swansea have netted once in the last four matches but they have performed slightly better than their counterparts with three points on the board. The two could cancel out each other with the Swans possessing the second-best defensive record on the road. Our correct score prediction is to go for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Brentford have produced a mixed bag in terms of performances in their home patch but they have still managed to keep the scores down to two goals in half of their matches. A similar low-scoring encounter could be on the cards this weekend with Swansea conceding just eight goals from their 10 away trips. Our total goals prediction fancies less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Neal Maupay has witnessed a slight drop in form for Brentford but he is still the player to watch for with 13 goals from 18 league appearances. The Frenchman has netted only twice in the previous five matches but he has managed to open the scoring in both instances. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Maupay.
