Rotherham United v Swansea City Free Betting Tips and Predictions

Today the Swans make the trip to the New York Stadium to face Rotherham United in the Championship.

Swansea come into this fixture on the back of two good home wins over Reading and Blackburn Rovers, which has pushed them up to 8th in the table, just two points outside the play off places.

Although the goals are starting to come for Swansea at the Liberty Stadium, they have struggled to find the net away from home in the Championship, scoring just four goals in seven away Championship games thus far.

Rotherham’s draw away at Preston was their fifth draw in six Championship games.

Rotherham were the pre-season favourites to be relegated, but currently sit just outside the relegation places.

Rotherham’s home form has been their strength this season as they have won three, drawn three and lost just one of their seven games so far, which has accounted for twelve of the fourteen points they have earned this season.

Rotherham are also short of goals and have scored just eight goals in their seven home games so far.

Rotherham United v Swans Match Predictions
It is not just the lack of goals that both teams have scored this season that points to a low scoring affair, but also how mean their defences have been as well.

Swansea have conceded just four goals away from home (in seven games) and Rotherham have conceded just six (also in seven games).

The suggested bet is to back the game to have under 2.5 goals, which is currently priced up at 4/5 (1.80) with Bet365 and MatchBook.

Connor Roberts celebrates scoring

With regard to goalscorer bets, I mentioned last week in my Swans v Reading tips, the value in Connor Roberts to score, as not all of the bookmakers seem to have realised that he is playing a lot of his football recently as a right winger.

Again, I would wait for the team news, as Graham Potter does usually like to spring a surprise or two, but if it appears Roberts will again play on the wing, then odds of 30/1 (31.00) with Paddy Power and BetFair are great value.

Bet Recommendations
Under 2.5 goals: 4/5 (1.80) Bet365 and MatchBook.
First goalscorer – Connor Roberts: 30/1 (31.00) BetFair, Paddy Power – dependent on the Swans team news of course!
