Derby County will be aiming to return to winning ways when they welcome Swansea City to Pride Park this weekend. The Rams have gone through an indifferent spell on either side of the international break but they are still close to the playoff positions. Swansea, however, are five points off the top six after experiencing successive defeats over the past week. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Derby come into this game on the back of a 2-1 defeat on the road to 10-man Stoke City. Sam Clucas and Tom Ince netted for Stoke on either side Harry Wilson’s leveller for Frank Lampard’s side.
Swansea suffered a defeat in midweek after being downed 2-1 at the hands of West Bromwich Albion. The Welsh outfit have now suffered back-to-back losses since returning from the international break.
Derby’s last meeting against Swansea City was at Pride Park seven years ago where they picked up a 2-1 triumph. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate Derby to return to winning ways.

Swansea are given a price of 4.33 for an away win but this outcome appears improbable for the weekend. The visitors have gone through a rut with three defeats from their previous four matches and this could play into the hands of Derby this weekend. Lampard’s side have generally made strong comebacks after losing a game and a similar reaction may be witnessed against Swansea, who are generally goal-shy on the road. Our preview fancies a victory for the home side.

Derby County vs Swansea City draw odds: 3.30
Swansea City win odds: 4.33
Correct Score odds
Barring the Aston Villa defeat last month, Derby have been in good scoring form at Pride Park with nine goals from their previous five matches. Swansea have not enjoyed a similar run of their travels and they have managed just two goals from their last five away trips. It is quite evident that the Swans have struggled upfront on their travels and this should point towards a comfortable Derby win. Our correct score prediction fancies a Derby 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Derby have generally failed to keep clean sheets under the guidance of Lampard and this has contributed to nearly 60 percent of their matches producing more than two goals. However, the weekend fixture offers them an opportunity to keep a shutout with Swansea netting just twice in their previous six away games. Our total goals prediction anticipates less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jack Marriott has found the scoresheet at regular intervals since the start of October including three in his previous five appearances. He should lead the line for the 10th game on the bounce. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Marriott.
