Southampton look to keep up their bid for a spot in the top three this weekend when they head to South Wales to meet with a Swansea City side that have very little to shout about right now.

Swansea vs Southampton prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Southampton to win

  • Southampton smashed Swansea 5-0 back on Boxing Day and have gone on to score 11 more goals in the following four games
  • This has moved the Saints up into third in the Championship while Swansea's one win in the following three league games means they are in 15th

We have also decided to back Southampton because of their 50 goals scored in 27 games putting them as the second-best goalscoring side in the Championship. The south coast side are also on a fantastic 20-game unbeaten run, which puts them as the most in-form team in the league by a significant margin.

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

Southampton smashed Swansea 5-0 in the last meeting between these two a few weeks ago, and only one game since then has seen under 2.5 goals with the Saints, as they drew 1-1 with Norwich City. Alongside this draw, Southampton have thrashed Sheffield Wednesday 4-0 and Walsall by the same scoreline, while they also saw over 2.5 goals in a win over Plymouth Argyle after the win over the Swans.

Southampton have also seen only Leicester City score more than their tally of 50, and with Swansea sitting with a terrible record of 41 goals let in from just 27 games, the Saints could run riot again.

Swansea vs Southampton prediction – Other tips

Southampton to win at half time and full time

  • Southampton eased to a 5-0 win over Swansea just under a month ago
  • Their 50 goals scored alongside Swansea’s woeful record of 41 let in points to another easy win for the Saints

Adam Armstrong to score

  • Armstrong has been arguably the best player in the Championship this season, and he now has 14 goals scored across all competitions from the 27 matches
  • Armstrong also got amongst the assists in the last outing against Swansea and will no doubt seek a goal this time around

Swansea Southampton Lineups

Swansea

Harrison Ashby remains sidelined for Swansea, as does Josh Ginnelly – both have muscle issues. Mykola Kukharevych is also back and ready for action, however.

Predicted Lineup: Rushworth (GK), Tymon, Humphreys, Wood, Darling, Grimes, Fulton, Cullen, Paterson, Parker, Lowe

Southampton

Despite the excellent form, Southampton have to deal with a lot of injuries. Joe Aribo is away on international duty with Nigeria, while Ross Stewart's awful luck with injuries means he is out for the season. Juan Larios, James Bree, Samuel Edozie and Sulemana are all out too.

Predicted Lineup: Bazunu (GK), Walker-Peters, Harwood-Bellis, Bednarek, Manning, Smallbone, Downes, Armstrong, Armstrong, Adams, Fraser

Player to Watch: Adam Armstrong

Barely any player in the Championship right now can say they have been better than Armstrong this season. The forward has scored 14 goals and has even managed to put together 11 assists too, meaning nobody has been involved in more goals than him.
