Swansea City are at the Liberty Stadium for this weekend’s league meeting against Ipswich Town. The hosts have impressed with a strong backline in the opening stages of the campaign and they are just behind the play-off positions on goal difference. Ipswich, though, have experienced the exact opposite in terms of their defensive record and they are the sole Championship side yet to secure a win. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Swansea played out their second draw in three matches as they settled for a 0-0 scoreline against Wigan Athletic. The Welsh outfit have now failed to score in four of their previous five league games.
Ipswich continued their winless run through the season, as they were beaten 2-0 at home by Middlesbrough. Ipswich have managed six draws and seven losses since the season began.
Swansea’s last encounter against Ipswich was at the Liberty Stadium in 2011 where they secured a comfortable 4-1 win. Fabio Borini starred in that game with a first-half brace. Our betting tips and predictions expect a Swansea win.

Ipswich are offered tempting odds of 4.50 for the victory but this outcome appears unlikely with their winless start to the campaign. Ipswich possess the joint-worst scoring record in the division with just eight goals and they can expect a tough game against the Swans, who have remained solid at the back with six clean sheets already. Swansea are also unbeaten against Ipswich over the past decade. Our preview is to go for a Swansea win.

Swansea City vs Ipswich Town draw odds: 3.50
Ipswich Town win odds: 4.50
Correct Score odds
Since 2008, Swansea have faced Ipswich on six occasions and they have dominated the Tractor Boys with three wins and three draws. The hosts should fancy another victory this weekend with Ipswich picking up just one point on the road while failing to score in three of their five matches. Our correct score prediction anticipates a Swansea 1-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Swansea’s solid defence has meant that they have picked up clean sheets in the majority of their matches this term. Just one of their previous five games have witnessed more than two goals and this has been the trend with Ipswich, who have been involved in close margin defeats. Our total goals prediction would back less than 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.61[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Oliver McBurnie has been Swansea’s most productive forward this term with four goals in the Championship. The 22-year-old has failed to score in each of the previous five matches but he has shown signs of returning to form after bagging a brace last weekend. Our first goalscorer prediction would back McBurnie.
