Birmingham are at a price of 2.75 to emerge victorious in this match. Despite playing at home, Monk’s team are not a good pick considering that they have made a poor start to the season. The several off-field issues have translated into problems on the pitch for the Midlands outfit. Meanwhile, Swansea have started the campaign in positive fashion and they certainly grew in confidence as the game against Preston wore on. Our preview would back a win for Swansea.

Birmingham City win odds: 2.75
Correct Score odds
Swansea created several good opportunities against Preston and were quite unlikely to come away with just one goal. The club had a much more restrained approach in the one away game. Meanwhile, Birmingham were dominated by Middlesbrough in their latest league game and the midweek exertions in the League Cup will have its say towards the end of this match. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Swansea 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Birmingham have struggled going forward in the last two games, but a return to the St Andrew’s does improve the prospects of witnessing a goal from the blues. However, Swansea have been quite stringent at the back and do not seem to be in the mood to concede goals. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Oliver McBurnie passed up a great opportunity to open the scoring against Preston as he missed a penalty in the 11th minute. The Scottish striker, though, scored the opening goal for Swansea in the first game against Sheffield United and our first goalscorer prediction would back the 22-year-old.
