* Betting odds were correct at the time of publication but are subject to change

Birmingham City will play out their first game without Wayne Rooney after the former Derby County boss was sacked after a dismal 15 games in charge, as the experienced Football League coach, Tony Mowbray, now comes to the helm for this match against Swansea City.

Birmingham vs Swansea prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Birmingham to win

  • With experienced Championship manager Tony Mowbray now in charge, Birmingham could have the manager bounceback-esque form
  • Swansea have also been terrible away from home this season, beating only Blackburn, Plymouth and Millwall on the road

We have also decided to back Birmingham, given how they managed to get a draw in the reverse fixture of this matchup back in South Wales. The Blues were also in excellent form prior to Rooney’s appointment, and without him, Mowbray could guide his side closer to the playoffs once more.

For more football betting tips on this game, check out the under 2.5 goals alongside our Birmingham vs Swansea betting tips.

The first game involving these two sides back on the opening weekend in the Championship saw under 2.5 goals in a 1-1 draw. Since then, neither side has gone on to impress on the goalscoring front and the form of Birmingham has been terrible within the past 15 games, winning only three of those fixtures.

Since the first clash between the two, Birmingham have gone on to score only 29 more goals across the 26 matches, while Swansea have netted 34 from the same amount of games. The last outing for the Blues also saw under 2.5 goals, as did the Swans’ previous league encounter with West Bromwich Albion.

Birmingham vs Swansea prediction – Other tips

Correct Score: 1-0

Jay Stansfield to score

  • Jay Stansfield has been Birmingham’s standout player this season with seven goal scored across all competitions
  • He also netted the club’s last league goal in a 3-1 loss to Stoke City
