Swansea City hope to break a poor run when they host Blackburn Rovers at the Liberty Stadium in the midweek action. The Welsh team are struggling in the bottom half of the table with only 17 points so far. Meanwhile, Blackburn have been steadily climbing up the table with the team now outside the play-offs only on goal difference. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

Swansea lost for a second consecutive game as they were beaten by a resurgent Aston Villa at Villa Park. The home win over QPR towards the end of September is the only success for Swansea in seven league games, as the pressure on Graham Potter increases.

Blackburn are on a high after managing back-to-back league wins for the first time this season. It is also the second time Blackburn have managed back-to-back league victories in the Championship since April 2017.

The recent game between these two clubs took place in 2015 when Blackburn managed a 3-1 win over Swansea in the FA Cup. Blackburn’s last trip to the Liberty Stadium was even further back in 2012 when they lost 3-0. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Blackburn.

Match odds

Swansea are at odds of 2.25 to win the game which may not be a huge surprise considering that Graham Potter’s men have home advantage. However, time is running out for Potter after watching his team manage one win in seven. Swansea have played relatively well but the Welsh team have been poor at taking their chances. The last month of action has witnessed Blackburn being unable to score just once. Our preview would go with a win for Blackburn as they have momentum and confidence.

Swansea City vs Blackburn Rovers draw odds: 3.30

Swansea City win odds: 2.25

Correct Score odds

Blackburn have been quite positive in front of goal under Tony Mowbray with the team failing to score just once in the last 14 games across all competitions. Swansea, meanwhile, have been the opposite with three blanks in the last five games. Yet, the Liberty Stadium has the ability to motivate Swansea if they make a good start. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 victory for Blackburn.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Blackburn have gone through multiple games that have ended up with over 2.5 goals with ease. Even though Swansea have been low on goals, this game is likely to profit from goals from the visitors. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Bradley Dack remains the top scorer at Blackburn with six league goals, but his recent form has been patchy. Danny Graham’s headed goal helped open the scoring against Leeds United and the forward will be aware of Tammy Abraham scoring by the same route against Swansea in the recent match for the Welsh team. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Graham, who has two goals in four Championship games against Swansea.
