Swansea vs Rotherham prediction and top betting tips

Swansea are in a really drab run of form heading into this game and the mood around the club will sour significantly if they can't beat a side like Rotherham at home. Will the Swans flex their muscles to grab a win or will the Millers find a way to bag a result? Find out with our Swansea vs Rotherham match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Swansea vs Rotherham Prediction 1: Draw

We kick off our predictions by sitting firmly on the fence as we back a draw. The main reason for this tip is that, ultimately, neither team have shown recent form that suggests they're good enough. Swansea have won just one of their last five games with the other four matches all ending in defeat. Rotherham likewise have only managed to come out on top in one of their last five but have drawn a couple of games in that period too. That gives the Millers a slight edge in a pure points taken manner but with Swansea holding home advantage that somewhat levels the playing field. The last head to head meeting ended in a draw too.

Swansea vs Rotherham Prediction 2: Both teams will score

Our next tip comes from the both teams to score market and we think that both teams will bag in this game. Swansea have seen both teams score in three of their last five games. Rotherham meanwhile have seen both teams score in two of their last three. On top of that recent form, the head to head record is strong where both teams scoring is concerned. The last two h2h games – and four of the last five – have ended with goals at both ends.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the Swansea vs Rotherham odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Swansea odds: 7/12 (1.58) – 63%

Draw odds: 3/1 (4.00) – 25%

Rotherham odds: 19/4 (5.75) – 17%

Swansea are seen as odds on favourites for this game – and in quite a big way. As you may have guessed from our above predictions, we're not convinced that a home win is a value bet. With Swansea in poor form, there is much better value available in the match result market than the path the bookies are leading the uninformed punter down.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Swansea vs Rotherham

Swansea

With the exception of long term absentee Steven Benda, who is out with an ACL injury, Swansea have a full squad to choose from. Given the way they've been performing of late, it would be a bit of a surprise if Russel Martin doesn't look to utilise that squad depth as well. One area that is likely to come under the spotlight is at centre back with both Ben Cabango and Harry Darling enduring a difficult time in their previous outing.

Predicted lineup – Fisher, Wood, Darling, Ntcham, Latibeaudiere, Manning, Grimes, Walsh, Whittaker, Cullen, Piroe

Rotherham

Rotherham might have only won one in their last five but that victory did come last time out and in an impressive manner as they defeated Sunderland in midweek. Given the nature of the performance that accompanied that win, we'd be surprised if there was much in the way of changes to the XI. That means we can expect a 4-4-1-1 formation. Sean Morrison and Ben Wiles are both out injured.

Predicted lineup – Johansson, Peltier, Hall, Humphreys, Hjelde, Ogbene, Coventry, Fosu, Ferguson, Rathbone, Hugill

Player to watch

Our player to watch in this game is Swansea's Morgan Whittaker. The 22-year-old forward found his first Championship goal of the season last time out and that could be huge in unlocking his confidence at this level. Up until January, Whittaker was on loan to Plymouth – in League One – where he showcased his goalscoring ability on a regular basis. If he can start to translate those displays to this division then Swansea will have a star on their hands.
