Swansea vs Preston Predictions
Reasons for Our Swansea City vs Preston Predictions
Today’s football predictions begin with a home win. Swansea got off to the perfect start on Saturday with a 2-1 success over Sheffield United. Graham Potter’s side showed tremendous spirit to come from a goal down and they put in a superb second half performance. Jefferson Montero was particularly impressive and he may be given another 20 minutes here. Swansea should be hard to beat at the Liberty this season and Preston are always more effective at Deepdale. Alex Neil’s side beat QPR 1-0 but with injuries to Billy Bodin and Sean Maguire, they are lacking in forward areas and may come up short here. Fans were happy with their opening day victory but are understandably concerned about their team’s lack of firepower. Despite their relegation, Swansea beat Arsenal and Liverpool at this season last year and they should be more than a match for PNE. The first of our Swansea vs Preston predictions is Swansea Win and they can be backed at 5/4 with Betfred. You can use their £30 free bet on any of the 3pm Championship fixtures.

Preston scored plenty of goals on the road last season but only kept seven clean sheets in 23 attempts. They should be extremely competitive here and give Swansea a few problems along the way. The Swans looked good going forward but struggled at the back during the first half and this could be prove to be a topsy-turvy 90 minutes. Just 48% of Preston’s away games ended with Over 2.5 Goals last season but they had a tendency to occur against better teams in the division [Wolves, Fulham etc] and it’s worth backing this outcome once again. Over 2.5 Goals is the second of our Swansea vs Preston predictions and can be backed at 11/10 with Bet365.

Oliver McBurnie was many people’s tip to finish as top goalscorer this season and he got off to the perfect start against Sheffield United with an instinctive finish in the second half. He was impressive for Barnsley during his loan spell and looks like he’ll continue his development at this level. He can find the back of the net in this encounter and grab his second goal of the season. Oli McBurnie to score anytime is priced at 6/4 with Paddy Power and is the third of our Swansea vs Preston predictions.

Winger Brandon Barker has joined on loan from Manchester City and will be hoping to figure. Billy Bodin is unlikely to be risked but Graham Burke and Ryan Ledson will be chomping at the bit for some game-time.
Swansea Key Player vs Preston
Jefferson Montero made an eye-catching cameo last week and the winger could swing this game in Swansea’s favour if utilised from the bench. He will directly run at the Preston back-line and they will have to be alert.
Preston Key Player vs Swansea
Andrew Hughes made an impressive debut for Alex Neil’s men and he will be required to stop the Swansea attack once again. The left-back’s agility and pace could help his side stay in this contest.
