Betting Tips for the game

Swansea were thrashed 4-0 by QPR at Loftus Road. This was the heaviest defeat of the season for Swansea, who have picked up three successive wins at the Liberty Stadium.

Match odds

Rotherham come into the game with just one away victory the campaign. Swansea, meanwhile, continue to build hopes on the top-10 finish owing to a strong home form. The Welsh team have picked up five successive victories at home. Even though Swansea’s earlier form at the Liberty Stadium was not very impressive, they have been excellent of late. Our preview would go with a victory for Swansea even if the Welsh team do not have a lot of motivation for success.

Swansea City vs Rotherham United draw odds: 3.80

Rotherham United win odds: 5.50

Correct Score odds

Swansea have been able to average close to 3 goals per game in recent home matches. Meanwhile, Rotherham have shipped a remarkable 14 goals in the last six matches on the road. Yet, Rotherham are fighting against relegation and the team may show a lot of resilience to score for a fourth successive away game. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Swansea.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Swansea have come up with a remarkable statistic of scoring over 1.5 goals in the last six home matches across all competitions and they have been able to keep just two clean sheets in this run. Rotherham will be buoyed by such a record, as they have only failed to score in the recent away match against Sheffield United since the middle of February. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Olive McBurnie had a disappointing match against QPR and the team is likely to heavy rely on Daniel James, who has been coming up with stellar performances on a consistent basis. The midfielder has been able to come up with two goals and an assist in his last four games for Swansea – including man of the match performances against Brentford and Stoke at the Liberty Stadium. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Daniel James.
