Match Summary

One to Watch: Oliver McBurnie

The striker has the been the main source of goals for the Swans this season, and while he doesn’t boast the experience of injured striker Wilfried Bony, his four goals in six Championship appearances is enough to warrant being classed as Swansea’s early star of the season.

Most Championship predictions will have him as favourite to open the scoring, and rightly so, with bet365 having him to score the only goal of the game at 7/1. After a run of just one win in their last five games in all competitions, McBurnie will need to be at the races this weekend if the Welsh side are going to claim all three points.

Swansea vs Nottingham Forest Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Swansea welcome Nottingham Forest to the Liberty on Saturday afternoon

Two teams who have high hopes of gaining promotion back to the Premier League, yet have taken different approaches to their strategy.

Swansea, fresh off the back of a disappointing relegation, have brought in Graham Potter from Sweden to try and revitalise their club and bring them back to England’s top flight, whereas Forest have decided to bring in the tried and tested Aitor Karanka who wants to repeat his success from his time at Middlesbrough.

The differing methods mean that both sides have the potential to either go far or fail miserably, but games like the one this coming Saturday can have such an impact on the season already. 

With the Swans 6/5 to win, a draw at 23/10 and a Forest win at 9/4 with bet365, it suggests that this game will be very tight and a tough one to call for Championship predictions.

However, if you’re looking for football score predictions this might be the game for you. A 2-1 Forest win is at 10/1 with bet365 and the same score for Swansea is 8/1, so it’s very close no matter what you choose. Either way, this will be a fun game to try and predict and could throw up some interesting bets.

Predicted Score: Swansea 1 - 1 Nottingham Forest
