Match Summary

3 It's a long shot, but…

Swansea to win 4-1 is 36/1 with 10bet.

The Swans beat Ipswich by that scoreline the last time Ipswich headed to Wales in 2011 and in the home sides last home game they put three past Queens Park Rangers meaning this may be a winnable long shot.

One to Watch: Oliver McBurnie

Swansea’s Scottish striker Oliver McBurnie is so far making good on his promise to fire the cards to promotion having netted four times this season including a brace against high-flying Leeds United in the home draw back in August.

Against an Ipswich side bereft of confidence, McBurnie will be targeting a return to the scoring charts and represents Swansea most prolific attacking option.

McBurnie is one of the main reasons why Swansea to win to nil at 15/8 with Paddy Power looks like being one of the best football betting tips for this game.

Manager Graham Potter gave Leroy Fer another run out in the mid-week draw with Wigan with the midfielder in line for a starting berth.

However, striker Wilfred Bony’s return from injury continues but will most likely not be ready for a return this weekend.

Head coach Paul Hurst said he was happy with the character shown by his team in the 2-0 loss to Middlesbrough and with no fresh injury concerns may be tempted to start the same eleven in the hope they start picking up their first win sooner rather than later.

Swansea vs Ipswich Town Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Swansea are quietly pushing up the Championship table after last season’s Premier League relegation

Ever since their relegation from the Premier League last season, Swansea City have been quietly going about their business and after 11 games find themselves nicely breaking into the top six. So far for new manager Graham Potter it is a job well done but things can change quickly in football – just ask Steve Bruce.

The same cannot be said for an Ipswich side who has been on the decline for a number of years and Paul Hurst’s team remain the only outfit in the division without a win. Do not expect a game full of intensity in our Championship preview as neither side are prolific in front of goal, but do expect more Ipswich pain.

Swansea are 17/20 to win and that looks like being one of the most likely football predictions for this game. The Tractor Boys have picked up just one point on the road this season but conceded nine times making the home win the only way to go in our Championship predictions.

Ipswich are 16/5 to win but it is hard to argue a case for that as one of our football score predictions. Ipswich has not won Swansea since 1982 and no wins this season hardly makes the Tractor Boys a tempting prospect.

The draw is 5/2 and that is a result that would please the away side. Half of the games played by each side this season has resulted in a draw making this a bet that is worth considering as one of the smarter football betting tips for the weekend.

Under 2.5 goals is 13/20 and looks almost a certain banker. Swansea may be sixth in the table but have only scored in one of their last five games whilst Ipswich has managed just three goals in their last five games making a lack of goalmouth action today’s football prediction.

Swansea to keep a clean sheet is 5/4 and one of the best football predictions. The Jacks may be having a tough time in front of goal but no such problems in defence. Just one goal has been conceded in the sides last five games meaning Ipswich will be up against to get on the score sheet and that’s a major reason why they’re not one of the football betting tips for the weekend.

Predicted Score: Swansea 1 - 0 Ipswich Town
