Swansea City are up against highflying Leeds United at the Liberty Stadium for a crucial midweek Championship encounter. Swansea have so far failed to make much of an impact in the season but manager Graham Potter has seen his team pick up seven points. Leeds United only have a two-point advantage over Swansea but Marcelo Bielsa’s team are the only outfit to have a 100% record in this current campaign. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Swansea were uninspiring in the game against Birmingham at the St Andrew’s Stadium and could have easily lost the match, which finished as a goalless draw. Swansea remain unbeaten even after some indifferent performances.
Leeds United strengthened their case for opening up a sizable lead in the table after a 2-0 win over Rotherham at Elland Road. Marcelo Bielsa’s team have been a breath of fresh air so far in the campaign.
Leeds and Swans last met each other back in 2011 and the match at the Liberty Stadium between these two clubs produced a 3-0 victory for Swansea. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Leeds United.

Swansea are given odds of 3.10 for the victory. Even though Potter’s team are unbeaten in the Championship so far, they have been far from impressive – especially in the weekend’s match against Birmingham. On the other hand, Leeds have been quite spectacular and have been going from strength to strength. It would take an impressive performance in order to beat this Leeds team, who have been enjoying life under Marcelo Bielsa. The Argentine manager became the first Leeds manager to pick up four consecutive wins at the start of a reign. Our preview would back a win for Leeds.

Swansea City vs Leeds United draw odds: 3.40
Swansea City win odds: 3.10
Correct Score odds
The attacking performance of Leeds has been one of the best in the campaign. West Brom may have overtaken Leeds as the top scorers in the early part of the campaign, but the intense pressing and high tempo game adopted by Bielsa’s team has been a joy to watch. Swansea have struggled with creativity and our correct score prediction would go with a Leeds United 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Leeds are the second best scorers in the early few rounds of the Championship 18-19 season, but Swansea would not want to end up with a bad defeat at home. Even though Leeds ripped apart Derby in their last away league match, our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals in this match.

First Goalscorer odds
Marcelo Bielsa resisted the lure to use Patrick Bamford from the start against Rotherham, but he is expected to retain his team in order to maintain the same intensity. The 24-year-old forward has played for less than 90 minutes against Swansea in his entire career, but the striker possesses the goal-scoring knack. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Bamford.
