Brentford vs Swansea – Our Prediction and Best Bet

Second chances are by no means guaranteed in the world of football so Brentford need to take this opportunity after losing to Fulham in last season’s Championship playoff final.

That the Bees keep returning after disappointment is testament to the way the club is run and to the spirit of Thomas Frank’s team. Swansea are an experienced outfit with some real quality in attacking positions so they will have their moments in this match but we expect Brentford to win and both teams to score which can be backed at a generous 4/1 with bet365*.

Brentford vs Swansea Betting Odds

Nothing could separate Brentford and Swansea in the regular Championship season. Both matches ended 1-1 so it would be no surprise at all were this match to be in the balance as we approach the closing stages.

Brentford to Win Odds

Brentford were the favourites to win the Championship title at one point this season and although they fell away in the middle part of the campaign they have been one of the best teams in the division all season and are 17/20 with Betfair to win the playoff final.

Brentford vs Swansea Draw Odds

After two previous draws there is every chance that the Championship playoff final will require extra time before it gets settled so the draw is a tempting option at 12/5 with bet365*.

Swansea to Win Odds

With players capable of coming up with a moment of magic and a very good manager who can work an opposition out, there is a lot to like about Swansea and their chances of winning at 7/2 with 888sport.
