Swansea City are at the Liberty Stadium for Saturday’s league clash against Sheffield Wednesday. The Welsh outfit recently ended a three-match losing run with an away win at Brentford and this sees them within seven points off the playoffs. Wednesday, though, are lying at the tail-end of the standings with six points splitting them from the drop zone. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Swansea picked up their first victory in nearly a month after they secured a 3-2 win on the road to Brentford. Graham Potter’s side secured a 3-0 advantage within the opening 30 minutes but they eventually had to hang on for the win.
Wednesday, however, went winless for the second game on the bounce after playing out a frustrating 2-2 draw against Rotherham United at the Hillsborough Stadium. Lucas Joao was the pick of the Wednesday players with a goal in either half.
Swansea’s last meeting against Wednesday was in the FA Cup fifth round earlier in the year where they secured a 2-0 win in a replay. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a win for the home side.

Wednesday are offered odds of 4.33 for the win and this indicates the testing challenge on their hands in Wales. Wednesday have not beaten Swansea in any competition since 1984 and we are not anticipating this statistic to change this weekend with the visitors possessing the joint-third worst defensive record when it comes to the away matches. Our preview fancies Swansea to secure a second-straight win over Wednesday.

Swansea City vs Sheffield Wednesday draw odds: 3.75
Sheffield Wednesday win odds: 4.33
Correct Score odds
Swansea and Wednesday faced each other on two occasions in the FA Cup fifth round last term and, in both matches, the latter failed to find the scoresheet. However, we are anticipating a more one-sided encounter this time out, though the hosts should prevail with the momentum gained from the recent 3-2 win at Brentford. Our correct score prediction fancies a Swansea 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Swansea have recently been subject to tough challenges against Norwich City and West Brom in their stadium and this has contributed to a minimum of three goals in both of those games. This has been the trend in three of Wednesday’s previous four away trips. Our total goals prediction is to go for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Oliver McBurnie has been hugely influential in the Swans’ frontline this term and he has netted eight goals in 21 league appearances. Among those, he has managed just one in the previous five matches but that was to open the scoring against West Bromwich Albion last month. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Oliver McBurnie.
