Swansea City hope to revive their promotion challenge when they take on West Brom, who do not find themselves in a vastly dissimilar position coming into this midweek match. Swansea are in danger of dropping too far from the play-off positions with the team now five points behind Derby County. West Brom are still not far off from the automatic promotion spots with only three points separating them from Middlesbrough in the second place.

Betting Tips for the game
Swansea came up with a horrendous defensive performance to end up losing 4-1 against table leaders Norwich at the Liberty Stadium. This was the second defeat in three games for Graham Potter’s men.
West Brom have been able to pick up a 2-1 success over Ipswich to make it back-to-back league victories for the first time since September. Prior to these two wins, West Brom had picked up only one win in six.
West Brom and Swansea played out a 1-1 draw up when the two teams were in the Premier League last season. The last game between Swansea and West Brom at the Liberty Stadium produced a 1-0 win for the home team. Our betting tips and predictions expect a success for West Brom.

Swansea City are given a price of 2.80 for success in the match. Even though West Brom’s last success at the Liberty Stadium was in 2014, the visitors have a better chance of coming out successful owing to a better set of performances of late. Swansea were defensively horrendous against Norwich and it is difficult to expect a home win after conceding four goals – even if it is against a promotion chasing team – only during the weekend. Our preview would pick a win for West Brom.

Correct Score odds
The Baggies have been on a decent run of form in the last few games, but they are still not perfect going forward. Yet, Swansea’s woeful defending will give West Brom with enough confidence about grabbing a couple of goals. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 win for West Brom.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The match is likely to end up as a high scorer – as it has done in three out of the last five games for Swansea and West Brom. Even though these two teams have largely played out games with under 2.5 goals whenever they have met in recent years, the Welsh team have been defensively poor and our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jay Rodriguez came up with the opener against Ipswich Town during the weekend. The 29-year-old has been West Brom’s impressive performer this season and he is now at nine goals for the campaign. Despite having only averaged a goal every other game, our first goalscorer prediction would back Rodriguez, who scored in West Brom’s recent match against the Welsh team.
