Swansea vs Luton: Our best betting tips
If we're honest, very few people had Luton being above Swansea at this stage of the season back in August. That's where we are though with the Hatters seven points above their hosts. Will they make that 10 points by beating the Swans on their own patch? Find out with our Swansea vs Luton match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Swans wings to be clipped again
Swansea's last five games read as three draws, a win and a loss; it's the perfect microcosm of their season as they've struggled for any sort of consistency with their overall levels simply not good enough to sustain anything like a playoff chase. Luton, however, could move to within three points of sixth place if they win this game. We think they'll do exactly that too. Why? Well, Swansea fell to defeat to struggling Hull last time out whilst Luton were holding high flying Blackburn to a 0-0 draw; it was the Hatters 10th point from the last 15 available after recording three wins and a draw from their prior four games.
Someone will fail to score
Our next prediction for this game is that at least one side will fail to find the net. Swansea have seen at least one side blank in each of their last three games. Luton meanwhile come into this match off the back of a goalless draw and have seen both sides net in just two of their last five matches. Then you have to consider the head to head record as well; the last meeting between these two ended 3-3 but that very much bucks the trend as the prior four meetings all saw at least one side blank in front of goal.

Swansea vs Luton: It's predicted lineup time
It's not a lie to say that Luton could push for promotion whilst Swansea could be sucked into a relegation battle. It is, however, unlikely on both counts with a midtable finish much more likely for each side. Will they take that into consideration here and let loose?
Swansea Predicted Lineup
Swansea's thought process at the start of the season was focussed on playing good football, which they've done at times. At some point though, results will have to come too. You would think a home tie against Luton is a reasonable fixture from which to take a positive result.
Predicted lineup – Hamer, Manning, Naughton, Cabango, Christie, Grimes, Downes, Latibeaudiere, Smith, Wolf, Piroe
Luton Predicted Lineup
Luton could move to within three points of the top six if they win this game, which shows what a remarkable job Nathan Jones is doing. Will he set up in a way that sees his side take maximum points? After drawing with Blackburn, a similar lineup is surely likely.
Predicted lineup – Shea, Lockyer, Shea, Naismith, Bree, Campbell, Lansbury, Ruddock, Bell, Onyedinma, Jerome
