Betting Tips for the game
Swansea’s most recent league game was against Sheffield United which they won by a 1-0 scoreline. The Welsh outfit were on FA Cup duty over the weekend where they beat Gillingham 4-0 in the fourth round.
Birmingham come into the clash on the back of a four-match winless streak in the Championship. The west Midlands side suffered a 3-1 defeat on the road to high-flying Norwich City in their last encounter.
The previous clash between the teams was at St Andrew’s in August which finished in a goalless draw. The last meeting at the Liberty Stadium was more than a decade ago and the game saw Birmingham winning by a 3-2 score. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Birmingham are offered odds of 3.50 for the win while Swansea are 2.15 for the same. Birmingham and Swansea have witnessed contrasting results since the turn of the year and the latter are certainly progressing on the right side with two wins compared to Birmingham’s none in 2019. Still, we are only predicting a share of the spoils, as both sides possess in-form frontmen to make it an even contest. Our preview is to go with a stalemate.

Birmingham City win odds: 3.50
Correct Score odds
Swansea and Birmingham have been pretty even in terms of their records in both sides of the pitch and the same could be the case on Tuesday. The last meeting produced a stalemate and the same outcome could be witnessed in midweek with Oliver McBurnie and Che Adams in superb scoring form of late for either side. Our correct score prediction anticipates a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Swansea have produced low-scoring encounters in the past two matches with a maximum of two goals witnessed. Birmingham could keep up with the trend, as the goals have recently dried up for them with just three in the past four matches. Our total goals prediction favours less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Both Olivier McBurnie and Che Adams have shone for Swansea and Reading respectively of late but the latter has been more threatening on goal. The Scotland international has bagged five goals in the past three games in all competitions while opening the scoring in each. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with McBurnie.
