Bitesize Prediction: Swansea vs Bournemouth – 26/04/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport

In what could turn out to be an enjoyable affair from south Wales on Tuesday night, Swansea will welcome Bournemouth to the Liberty.

Starting with the hosts, while Swansea might have come from behind to grab a 1-1 draw at home against Middlesbrough a few days ago, Rusell Martin’s men have gained a recent reputation as a stalemate specialist. However, despite having to settle for a single point in each of their last three Championship contests, the Swans should still find the mood in their camp at a high. Skyrocketing their way up the table and now with their sights set on clinching a top-half finish, the former MK Dons boss still finds his side enjoying a nine-match unbeaten run. However, knowing that they likely face a stern test in south Wales on Tuesday night, Martin will have a slight headache over his side’s recent issues at the back. Including an action-packed 4-4 draw against Reading earlier in the month, Swansea have failed to record a clean sheet in any of their last four outings.

As for the visitors, while Bournemouth might still find themselves firmly sat in pole position to clinch an automatic Premier League return, the Cherries do find themselves seeking some stability. Despite being last seen playing out a 1-1 draw against an already promoted Fulham on home soil, Scott Parker’s side have won just one of their last five Championship contests, a run that stems back to April 2nd. Looking to take one giant step on Tuesday night, Bournemouth should at least be boosted by their rampant record against the Swans. Including a thumping 4-0 win when the two sides faced off at the Vitality back in November, Parker’s side are unbeaten in each of their previous 12 meetings against the south Wales outfit. In a contest that could once again see chances come thick and fast, we’re backing an enjoyable contest here.

Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Swansea vs Bournemouth 4/11 for Tuesday’s Championship battle @ 888sport
