Reason For Brentford vs Swansea Betting Tips

  • These two sides are sitting level on points in the race for the playoffs.
  • Brentford have won 4 home games on the spin.
  • Swansea have scored in 82% of their Championship matches.
  • Brentford have won 8 of their last 12 matches.

Top Six Showdown

Locked on 37 points, these two sides find themselves at the heart of the playoff battle this week. The Swans are in seventh after their weekend win over Luton, while a point against the leaders left Brentford in sixth. Now they face off chasing a place in the top six.

These two sides lock horns with the Bees on the up. They’ve won their last four home games in a run of form which has taken them up the Championship table. Now they are going up against the Welsh side hoping to land a huge blow to a playoff rival, but the Swans have proven tough to beat on the road this term.

Bees Clicking in Attack

There was always going to be a tough period for Brentford this season. The departure of Neal Maupay was a blow, but he wasn’t their most impressive forward. Saïd Benrahma has more talent, while Ollie Watkins has slid into a central role with 13 goals this season. Since the start of last season, Benrahma has provided more assists than any other Brentford player in the Championship (19), assisting two of the Bees’ last four goals.

That scoring record has to be a boost to the home side, who are aiming to secure promotion this term. They haven’t disappointed in attack at home, with 19 goals in their 11 matches at Griffin Park so far. They’ve scored in each of their last five matches ahead of this encounter, while they should punish a Swansea side who have one clean sheet in nine.

Swans to Test Brentford Defence

While Swansea have issues at the back, they’ve been a consistent scoring force at this level. They’ve scored in each of their last six Championship games, while the visitors have found the net in seven away trips on the bounce. The Welsh outfit have scored in 82% of their away games, so we expect them to test Brentford in this visit.

With the Bees looking great going forward, we expect goals when these two sides meet. Swansea have seen 64% of their trips finish with both teams scoring, while five of their last six matches have seen both teams score. We expect that run to continue with another thrilling clash here, with both teams to score our pick for this clash.

The Bees are benefitting from some fine attacking form and that is bringing results on the pitch. Brentford have won eight of their last 12 league games (D1 L3), winning their last four in a row at Griffin Park. They head into this clash aiming to match their 2-1 victory over Swansea on Boxing Day in 2005 and we think their recent great form will deliver another 3-1 success over the Swans.
