Fulham v Swansea: Back more Swans goals in the second half

| 22.01.2013

Swansea have enjoyed their previous Premier League trips to Craven Cottage, taking the spoils in the last two seasons, scoring at least twice on both occasions as well, which bodes well for Michael Laudrup’s side.

Three straight top-flight defeats have seen Fulham slink down the Premier League staircase into 18th position ahead of Swansea’s visit.

The net result is that the Cottagers find themselves as outsiders for victory on their own turf, available at 2/1 with Ladbrokes, while 13th–place Swansea are tagged at 13/10 to make it a hat-trick of wins on the banks of the River Thames.

Meanwhile, those punters whose interests merely revolve around the match odds market may also wish to consider that although Fulham’s slump appears drastic, they have just played Liverpool, Manchester United and Southampton.

Therefore, the 2/1 on a home win could just provide one of the value bets of the weekend.

Swerving the result, though, profit looks most likely to be uncovered by some investments in some of the goal markets and in particularly the recent trend of more Swansea goals in the second half.

The 6/4 on offer from Ladbrokes looks a snip when you consider the Welsh club’s last eight league goals have arrived after the half-time team talks.

This eventuality naturally brings into play the 11/10 available for the second half to produce the most goals in total, a bet which would have landed in Swansea’s last three league games.

It could also prove fruitful to back this game to be a relatively high-scoring contest, given the last four renewals between these opponents have gone north of the 2.5 goals line, priced up at 20/21 to happen again here.

Swansea’s in-form striker Wilfried Bony, with three in his last two games, looks the most likely Swans scorer at 11/8 too.
