Swansea vs Fulham Betting Tips and Predictions
Fifth placed Swansea welcome third placed Fulham to the Liberty Stadium on Friday night to get the weekend’s Championship action off to a start. After a rough start to the season Swansea have risen up the table of late but their home form is a worry; they’ve only won one of their last five at home in the league. Fulham have won their last three in a row and are playing some great football of late. The Cottagers don’t have a good record in Swansea though, they’ve only managed to win there five times in their fourteen visits to south Wales. Who can take the three points here and can we find any value in the betting markets?
Swansea vs Fulham Betting Tips and Predictions: Swansea
The Swans went though a bit of a wobble last month but look to be back playing a bit better of late, as said above though their home form is problematic. They’ve won just one of their last five at the Liberty which is surprising as they’d only lost one of their 15 matches prior to their current run.
So far this season in the Championship Swansea are averaging 1.22 goals per match and conceding 1.22 as well. In their five most recent league matches at home they’ve scored just three goals though and have conceded seven.
Swansea have no injuries to report since their last match in the league against Millwall.

Fulham’s Championship form of late has been quite good, winning three of their last five in the league, away from home they’ve won two of their last five, drawn two and lost one. Overall they’re on a run now of three wins in a row and will be eager to improve on their record against the Swans, who they’ve only beaten once in their last four meetings at the Liberty.
Away from home, Fulham are averaging 1.13 goals per match and conceding 0.88 and in their last five on their travels away from Craven Cottage they’ve scored six and conceded four.

The Goal line opened at 2.5 and has moved to 2.75 as the market was heavily backing Over 2.5 goals.
Fulham have the momentum here but that bad away record is putting us off backing them and the goals markets are offering little value. A bit of an unusual pick for us here, but if the match is 0-0 at HT we’d back Over 1.5 goals at over 2.0. However, if a goal is scored in the first half then let it run and just enjoy the match.
