Swansea City’s poor form saw the team’s slide into the 16th place of the league table as they take on Brentford at the Liberty Stadium in the midweek action. Swansea are down to 16th in the Championship table with only 11 points separating them from the bottom three. Even though there is no immediate threat of relegation for the Welsh outfit, there is a huge cause of concern for Graham Potter and his job security. Brentford were able to move up to 13th in the table after the weekend results. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Despite taking a lead against Nottingham Forest, Swansea ended up losing 2-1 at the City Ground. This was the fourth successive defeat for Swansea.
Brentford were able to take up a valuable point at the DW Stadium after a goalless with Wigan. The away victory over Middlesbrough and home win over QPR are the only successes for Brentford in the last six matches.
The recent encounter between these two teams was in the FA Cup when Swansea picked up a 4-1 victory at Liberty Stadium. This was preceded by a Championship meeting back in December when Swansea picked up a 3-2 victory at the Griffin Park. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Swansea.

Brentford are a favourite opponent for Swansea with the world’s team achieving six consecutive victories against this outfit. Even though these victories have come across multiple generations with the most recent meeting in the league coming back in 2008, both teams have enjoyed contrasting fortunes in home and away games. Despite Swansea’s recent struggles, the team still has not suffered a defeat in the last five home games. Brentford had just one shot on target against Wigan despite dominating possession. Our preview would go with more of the same.

Swansea City vs Brentford draw odds: 3.60

Correct Score odds
Brentford and Swansea have been quite disappointing going forward of late. The ability to hit on the counter will help Swansea in this match, but they have also been defensively poor with a remarkable 11 goals conceded in the last six matches alone. Our correct score prediction expects a game with a 2-1 home victory.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Both games between Swansea and Brentford this season have witnessed over 3.5 goals with ease. The two teams play a brand of football that suits a lot of entertainment in the way of goals and this upcoming meeting should not be any different with Swansea especially being poor at the back of late. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Oliver McBurnie comes into the game as one of the players on decent form for Swansea. Despite being involved in international action, the 22-year-old comes with a decent return of three goals in his last five games for Swansea. A feature from both games between Swansea and Brentford this season has been the goals from Ollie Watkins, who has scored in both fixtures. However, our first goalscorer prediction would back Oliver McBurnie.
