Aston Villa v Swansea Prediction & Betting Tips, 5th January 2019

FA Cup & League Cup Betting

Aston Villa v Swansea FA Cup Preview, 5th January 3.00pm

With these two have already met in the Championship twice this season, Aston Villa have reason to be confident. They have already banked back to back 1-0 wins over the Swan this season. But Swansea have won two of their last three visits to Villa Park and this could be another close scrap between the two of them. Read our Aston Villa v Swansea betting tips for more.

Aston Villa v Swansea Betting Odds*

Aston Villa 13/5
Draw 7/2
Swansea 11/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 2nd, 2019 at 6:35 p.m.)


Aston Villa v Swansea Preview

Aston Villa have collected 1-0 victories in both Championship fixtures against Swansea this season. They got the away win over Swansea just back on Boxing Day. There has been a trend of 1-0 score lines in meetings between the clubs recently. All but one of the last six meetings have ended in a 1-0 scoreline, with Villa winning two of those. The wins over Swansea that Aston Villa have picked up this season have been against the grain really. They were winless in seven against Swansea before that. Aston Villa’s defensive problems have led them to a D1 L3 record in their last four home games. But the positive from their current home form is that they have lost just one of their last eight played there across all competitions. Villa have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five home fixtures.

But then their defence has already blanked Swansea twice. So which way does this tie swing? Swansea are not particularly in any kind of hot form at the moment as they have gone W3 D1 L5 in their last nine games. Their defence has been having its problems lately as well as they have failed to get a clean sheet in any of their last nine games played. Looking specifically at their away from they have won only three of their last ten played away from the Liberty Stadium. But the goals have been there for them lately away from home. Swansea have tallied nine goals in their last three away games. Adversely they have one clean sheet in six on the road. While they have fallen twice to Villa this season, they can look at their inspiring run in the FA Cup last season where they made it to the quarterfinals. Both teams have scored in all but on Swansea last seven games away from home.

Who will win – Aston Villa v Swansea Predictions

There may not be too much to split these two at the end of the day against. All of the recent head to heads between them have been tight so there’s no reason to expect any different. Home advantage may just the job done for Villa over the Swans again. Villa to win outright at 13/5 odds* (betting odds taken from bet365 on January 2nd, 2019 at 6:54 pm)

Hull v Swansea Prediction & Betting Tips, 22nd December 2018

Championship Betting

Hull v Swansea Championship Preview, 22nd December 5.30pm

It had been a difficult season for Hull in the Championship but since the end of October, they have turned their fortunes around. A win last weekend over Brentford strengthened their survival fight. Swansea start the weekend up in the top ten and need to keep picking up points to stay in touch with the top six. Read our Hull v Swansea betting tips for more.

Hull 6/4
Swansea 9/5
Draw 23/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 18th, 2018 at 3:55 p.m.)


Hull News and Form

Hull have moved on to a very good W4 D3 L1 record over their last eight Championship fixtures. Last weekend they got a very good solid home 2-0 win over Brentford. That took them out to a W3 D3 L5 record this season on home soil in league action. Two of the three wins in that form were only against sides currently lumped in the bottom six of the Championship. Hull have only managed the nine home goals this season and they have conceded a total of eleven at the KCom this term. Only 18% of all league games at Hull this season have gone above 2.5 goals

The Tigers have earned a clean sheet in 36% of their home games which isn’t too bad. Of their eleven home games in the second tier their, six of them have been level at the halftime break. Hull have not been beaten in any of their last four games home and away in the Championship (W2 D2). They produced at least two goals in each of their last three league outings. Of the goals which they have conceded at home this season, 73% of them have been in the second period of matches. Each of their last eight home fixtures have ended under 2.5 goals. Just three sides have taken were some points in the Championship than Hull have managed this season.

Hull v Swansea Head to Head

Hull have won their last three home games against Swansea
They beat them twice at home in 2017 (League & FA Cup)
The Tigers are no a four-match winnings streak against Swansea
The Swansea have failed to score in five of their last seven against the Tigers

Swansea News and Form

Swansea landed a 2-1 home win over Sheffield Wednesday last weekend which left them with back to back wins in the Championship. Before that, they had lost three in a row. Their away form this season is W4 D3 L4 and are W2 L2 in their last four on the road. In their away games the Swans have tallied 10 and have conceded 10 this season. Less than half of their away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals so the indicators are that this will be a low scoring game between them. Swansea have earned a clean sheet in 36% of their away games

The Welsh club have been level at halftime in six of their eleven road games, so another strong option appears to be the halftime draw. All six of Swansea’s half time away draws were 0-0 scorelines. Despite that, they haven’t drawn any of their last eleven games in the top flight.
They are on a nine-match scoring streak in the Championship. Swansea have not managed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last five games and actually, they are on a run of five games which have finished over 2.5 goals. They have scored first in just three of their away games this season.

Hull v Swansea Tips & Odds

Both teams not to score even money
Hull to win by a one-goal margin at 3/1

Who will win – Hull v Swansea Predictions

Given that the Tigers have a good home record against the Welsh club in recent times they look a good proposition to win this. They have good momentum going as well and even though the Swans have upped their game, it’s a home win for us.

Championship Betting

Wigan v Swansea Championship Preview, 2nd October 7.45pm

Wigan have done really well following their promotion up to the Championship. They are sitting in the top ten heading into the midweek action. Swansea are right there with them level on sixteen points so this is going to be a pretty big clash between the pair of them. Read our Wigan v Swansea betting tips for more.

Wigan 19/20
Draw 12/5
Swansea 14/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 29th, 2018 at 11.35 p.m.)


Wigan News and Form

The Latics have done really well this season but there is a clear trend going on with them. They have won five games this term and four of those have cropped up on home soil. They are undefeated at home in the Championship this season with a W4 D1 record posted. Each of their four wins have been by a one-goal margin as well. A Wigan to win by a one-goal margin is at 13/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 8:58 pm). They have won their last three in a row at home.

Given their output, under 2.5 goals is at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 8:58 pm). The Latics have scored in each of their home games this season and they have not been trailing at half time in any of their home games so far. 64% of the goals that they have scored in the second division this season been in the first half of matches. Wigan have the joint best home form in the entire Championship this season (alongside Brentford and Middlesbrough).

Swansea News and Form

The Swans have a W4 D4 L2 record for the season so it has been pretty solid stuff from them along the way. Over the weekend they produced a good 3-0 home win over QPR on home soil and that snapped a three-game sequence of no goals scored by the Swans. They have averaged exactly a goal per game this season in the Championship and have failed to score in half of their league matches, home and away combined. Both teams not to score is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 8:58 pm).

Away from home this season the Swans are W2 D2 L1 and have collected just the one win in their last four. Going back to their lack of scoring, they have failed to score in three of their last four games away from the Liberty Stadium. Swans have yet to score a single first-half away goal this season as well and three of their four road goals have come in the final fifteen minutes of matches. To be fair their defence has been good. They haven’t shipped an away goal in the first half of any match and have conceded just three goals in five road games.

Wigan v Swansea Head to Head

The last time that Wigan and Swansea met up was in the 2012/13 Premier League season. Swansea collected a win on both occasions that season, each of them by a one-goal margin. Swansea are actually on a three-match winning streak against the Latics and are unbeaten in four against them. Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings in all competitions.

Who will win – Wigan v Swansea Predictions

We can only predict a low-scoring game cropping up in this one really. The Latics have done well on home soil and Wigan are a pretty solid defensive side. Still, in looking for a winner, we fancy Wigan to come up with a one-goal margin success.

Millwall v Swansea Prediction & Betting Tips, 31st August 2018

Championship Betting

Millwall v Swansea Championship Preview, 31st August 5.30pm

This is a clash between two sides who have struggled to find much-winning momentum this season. Swansea are winless in their last three league outings, while the Lions have picked up just the one win from their five games played. This should be a tight battle at The Den between two sides looking for a boost. Read our Millwall v Swansea betting tips for more.

Millwall v Swansea Betting Odds*

Millwall even money
Draw 23/10
Swansea 11/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from August 28th, 2018 at 2:01 a.m.)

Millwall News and Form

Millwall have posted a W1 D2 L2 record so far this season in the Championship so they haven’t been able to find that winning momentum yet. They are unbeaten at home from their two games so far though, having held Middlesbrough to a 2-2 draw and then having taken a win over Derby. Those were two tough home games actually and they came through the tests, so there is a reasonable chance that they could avoid defeat in this one.

Millwall have scored exactly two goals in both home games this season but we easily see this game going under 2.5 goals at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 28th, 2018 at 2:01 a.m.). They have not quite hit their stride yet, but they were strong on home soil last season in the Championship and have lost just one of their last 17 league fixtures at The Den. Lee Gregory is their top scorer with two goals and is the favourite in the bet365 first goalscorer market.

Swansea News and Form

The Swans started the season very brightly with back to back wins, but it has gone into a bit of a decline since having drawn two and lost one. Their first defeat of the season came at home against Bristol City last weekend and they have failed to score in two for their last three league outings now. Overall on the road, they have taken four points from their two games and really the question about them would be whether or not they really had the edge to push through and grind out the away victory at The Den?

In the correct score market the shortest priced option is the 1-1 draw at 4/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 28th, 2018 at 2:01 a.m.). This just has the look of being a tight game between two fairly evenly matched side. The Swans have a goalscoring asset in Ollie McBurnie who has netted three times this season and has taken plenty of backing to end the term as the Championship top goalscorer.

Millwall v Swansea Head to Head

This will be the first meeting between Millwall and Swansea since the 2010/11 Championship. Swansea collected four points from those two meetings, which are incidentally the only two previous meetings in the Championship. So there’s not too much to go on but both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings.

Who will win – Millwall v Swansea Predictions

This one does have a draw written all over it. Neither team look particularly strong enough to go out and break the other down. Swansea will want to prove a point after their first loss of the season last time out, but Millwall are a very strong home side. Draw.

EFL Cup Second Round Betting Odds & Predictions

FA Cup & League Cup Betting

There is plenty of betting opportunities around in midweek with the second round of the EFL Cup kicking off. Most of the games are on Tuesday, August 28th, but a few are on Wednesday 29th. This is the round where all Premier League sides who are not involved in European action this season, join the fray.

It is usually the first chance that Premier League managers have to rest some of their regular starting eleven. So you will see a lot of understrength top-flight teams heading out into action in midweek for this low-priority tournament and that could lead to some great betting opportunities in backing underdogs.

Here are some EFL Cup Second Round Betting Odds & Predictions for games involving Premier League sides.

Swansea v Crystal Palace

We can only predict that this is going to be a tight battle, between a somewhat hardened Swans side and an understrength Palace. The thing about the Eagles is that if they don’t have Wilfried Zaha knocking around then it is hard to see where the goals are going to come from. He has scored two of their three Premier League goals this season for example. It’s unlikely that he’ll be used unless he really has to be. Swansea aren’t a side who appear to be stacked with goals but they have a decent chance of digging in here, in one of the more high-profile games of the second round. We have a feeling this will need more than 90 minutes and Swansea To Qualify at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken on August 26th, 2018 at 11:25 pm) appeals greatly.

AFC Wimbledon V West Ham

West Ham have had a dreadful start to the season and you aren’t going to see much more naive defending around than from them at the moment. Manuel Pellegrini appears to have a bigger task ahead of him than expected. They have enough quality to get everything settled down eventually but with they have their cage rattled at Wimbledon on Tuesday night? Given the number of goals that the Hammers have given up this season, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise. But the Dons just aren’t carrying any kind of form with them and we can see the depth that West Ham have just winning out on the day. We see enough to back West Ham at a -1.25 Asian Handicap.

Cardiff v Norwich

Cardiff have so far been Cardiff. Tight, organized, combative. Everything you would expect from them under boss Neil Warnock. They have taken two points from their three Premier League games this season but they haven’t managed to come up with a goal just yet. That’s going to be problematic for them unless they sort things out quickly. With their Premier League survival a higher priority than this, then we have to look at Norwich to pull something out of the bag in this one. This is a chance for the Canaries to blow off steam and even though they have had some poor defensive displays this season, they are facing a side who won’t exactly give to threat too much. Norwich to Qualify as at 13/8 odds* (betting odds taken on August 26th, 2018 at 11:25 pm).

Stoke v Huddersfield

With their first win of the Championship having been landed on the weekend, SToke will be feeling a bit better about themselves. So they will be up for the challenge here against Premier League Huddersfield and we have to say that we can’t overlook the 6/5 odds appeal on Stoke to win outright* (betting odds taken on August 26th, 2018 at 11:25 pm). They are at home and taking on a Terriers side who aren’t blessed with a particularly deep squad and who are out of form as well. There can’t be too much interested in this for the Terriers. Home win.

Nottingham Forest v Newcastle

Nottingham Forest have gone unbeaten for the new season in the Championship and so because of that, and because they are at home where they have to be value to throw down a big old challenge to the Magpies. Newcastle really looked as if the needed to make some serious transfers over the summer to strength not only the core but their depth as well. They won’t be at full strength here and that will leave them somewhat vulnerable. This is probably going to be a tight tussle, but the value for us is on Nottingham Forest To Qualify at even money* (betting odds taken on August 26th, 2018 at 11:25 pm)

Swansea v Crystal Palace EFL Cup Prediction & Betting Tips – 28th August 2018

Crystal Palace

Swansea v Crystal Palace EFL Cup, 28th August 7.45pm

Just last season this was a Premier League fixture but now with Swansea having suffered relegation, they will go into this game hoping to pull off an underdog success. Will they have enough punch going forward to get the better of Palace? The Eagles will kick off as favourites at the Liberty Stadium. Read our Swansea v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.

Swansea v Crystal Palace EFL Cup Betting Odds*

Crystal Palace 23/20
Swansea 23/10
Draw 12/5
*(Betting Odds were taken from August 25th, 2018 at 8:15 p.m.)

Swansea v Crystal Palace EFL Cup Betting Tips

The Swans can’t have too many complaints about their start to the Championship season with a W2 D2 L1 record having picked up in their five games. They are winless in three though and you look at them and do wonder where the goals are going to come from over the course of the season. That’s a failure to score in two of their last three games now.

Swansea have played three home games this season with a W1 D1 L1 on the board from those and three of their last four games played have gone under 2.5 goals. We are going to expect that trend to continue here and under 2.5 goals is at 3/4* (Betting Odds were taken from August 25th, 2018 at 8:15 p.m.) and leads our Swansea v Crystal Palace betting tips. It really is hard to see this being a high scoring fixture.

From the two league meetings last season it was Swansea who had the better of things as they collected four points from their two meetings, including a 1-1 home draw. The Swans are actually undefeated in their last seven home games against Palace, but five of those seven have ended in a draw, four of the 1-1 draws. The two have never met in the league Cup before.

Crystal Palace may enjoy blowing off a bit of steam in this one. Although there were much easier ties they could have gotten. The Eagles will have had less rest than the Swansea because of their Premier League fixture against Watford on Sunday, but they are likely to shuffle their pack anyway so it may not be a huge factor.

Crystal Palace plays with a lot of spirit and passion but take Wilfried Zaha out of the picture and they aren’t a profile side up front. Both teams NOT to score in this EFL Cup tie is at 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 25th, 2018 at 8:15 p.m.). This may well be a tie which needs to go beyond the 90 minutes to get settled because the two should be fairly evenly matched at the end of the day.

Who will win – Swansea v Crystal Palace EFL Cup Predictions

There should be a good even contest here, but we are still going to go with the Eagles to get the job done at the Liberty Stadium. They should just be able to come up with that extra touch of quality going forward to win it.

Swansea v Leeds Championship Preview, 21st August 7.45pm

Swansea have made an undefeated start to life back in the Championship after they picked up a point out at Birmingham on Friday night. This home game against Leeds in midweek is going to be a big test for them though. Leeds has made a flying start under Marcelo Bielsa, winning all three of their games and scoring freely. Will they be able to keep their streak going on their visit to the Liberty Stadium? Read our betting tips for Swansea v Leeds.

Swansea v Leeds Betting Odds*

Leeds 27/20
Swansea 2/1
Draw 23/10
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.)

Swansea News and Form

So it has been a really positive start from Swansea who opened with back to back one-goal margin wins over Sheffield and then Preston. They then played out a 0-0 draw on the weekend against Birmingham. It has been pretty decent stuff from them, but in their last two games, you are just starting to wonder about their goal output. This is a top seven clash and for it, we are going to have to under 2.5 goals for our Swansea v Leeds betting tips which is at 17/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.). There has only been the one goal conceded by the Swans this season in the league.

This is going to be an important early home game for them in which to try and sustain some good momentum. They have looked pretty strong at their defensive and they are going to need to be against a very strong, attack-minded Leeds that are going to be showing up. Even though Leeds have been scoring well we have to lean towards both teams not to score at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.). That is because the Swans are not bursting at the seams with attacking power. Ollie McBurnie is their shortest priced option in the first goalscorer market for the future.

Leeds News and Form

It has been a tremendous start from Leeds then under Marcelo Bielsa. It is three wins from three from them so far and they also landed as success in the EFL Cup. So they are motoring well and they have scored at least two goals in each of their games played this season. They opened with a 3-1 home win over Stoke to set them on the right path and then pounded out a fantastic 4-1 away success against Derby. That made punters sit up and take notice. With a 2-0 win over Rotherham on the weekend, they are going into this game as favourites. But three of their four wins this season have been at home and they will be going up against a good defence.

Leeds have Kemar Roofe as their top scorer for the season with three goals on the board already in the Championship. Roofe is the joint 5/1 first goalscorer favourite for the game* (Betting Odds were taken on August 19th, 2018 at 8:02 p.m.) alongside Patrick Bamford and Swansea’s McBurnie. Roofe is their top away scorer with two. If they keep this up they are going to take some stopping and Bielsa was always likely to have a big influence on them. But winning streaks are hard things to maintain but twice last season they won four games on the bounce in the league. Leeds produced a W7 D3 L13 record away from home last season. They will be in this.

Swansea v Leeds Head to Head

The last time these two sides were together was in the 2010/11 Championship season. They traded home wins in that season in what are the only previous Championship fixtures in which they have met. Four of the last five games between the two have seen over 2.5 goals though and the Swans are undefeated in their last four home games against Leeds (W3 D1). There hasn’t been an away win in any meeting between them in the last nine fixtures.

Who will win – Swansea v Leeds Predictions

We are going to settle on the draw being churned out in this one and that will be done by backing the defence of the home side coming through. You basically have a good defence up against a strong attack. It evens out. Draw.

Championship Betting

Birmingham v Swansea Championship Preview, 17th August 7.45pm

There is some early pressure mounting on Birmingham after picking up just the one points from their opening two games of the new season. It is likely that they won’t get an easy home game on Friday night either as they play host to Swansea. The Swans have come firing out of the gate banking back to back wins and they are going into the fixture as favourites. Read our Birmingham v Swansea betting tips for more.

Birmingham v Swansea Betting Odds*

Swansea 6/4
Birmingham 7/4
Draw 23/10
* (Betting Odds were taken on August 14th, 2018 at 7:08 p.m.)

Birmingham News and Form

After their struggles against relegation last season, Birmingham would have been hoping for a more positive start to the new Championship season. It has not quite happened though for them after they opened with a 2-2 home draw against Norwich and then suffered a 1-0 defeat out at Middlesbrough. The Blues had Craig Gardner sent off late at the Riverside. So that is no clean sheet for them so far but we are going to go with the option of both teams not to score at 5/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 14th, 2018 at 7:08 p.m.) as we see this being a low-scoring game.

So far the Blues haven’t looked particularly good in possession and not particularly clinical in front of goal although Lukas Jutkiewicz has looked sharp and he is a 5/2 anytime goalscorer option for the Blues* (Betting Odds were taken on August 14th, 2018 at 7:08 p.m.). Last season the Blues produced a W10 D3 L10 record on home soil in the Championship. A win here relieves some pressure for boss Garry Monk who will be facing his former team.

Swansea News and Form

The Swans have made a flying start to the new season with them having collected back to back wins over Sheffield United and Preston. Both of those successes were by a one-goal margin and a Swansea to win by a one-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 14th, 2018 at 7:08 p.m.) and is one of our top Birmingham v Swansea betting tips. In their first game of the season against Sheffield United, the Swans fought back from a goal down on the road to take the win and then held out after a first-half goal against Preston.

They do actually look pretty organised and strong at the back while going forward they have averaged 9.5 shots per game so far. There probably were concerns at the start of the season as to where the goals were going to come from, but it has been a positive start from them and they will have plenty of appeal to go out and get a win in this one. We see the game ending under 2.5 goals though at 7/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 17th, 2018 at 7:08 p.m.).

Birmingham v Swansea Head to Head

Swansea and Birmingham last met in the 2013/14 season in Cup action. Birmingham won a League Cup tie on home soil against the Swans and then suffered an FA Cup home defeat against the Welsh club later that season. The last league meeting between them was in the 2008/09 Championship with Birmingham collecting four points from the two meetings. The overall head to head has Birmingham 16-8 up with the seven drawn matches.

Who will win – Birmingham v Swansea Predictions

We are siding with the Swans to get a one-goal margin victory out at St Andrew’s. They showed good character in taking a win at Bramall Lane on the opening weekend and they may find Birmingham not quite so much of a challenge.

Sheffield United v Swansea Prediction & Betting Tips – 4th August 2018

Championship Betting

Sheffield United v Swansea Championship, 4th August 5.30pm

Swansea couldn’t hold onto their Premier League status last season and so have to go and scrap things out in the second tier now. They get a tough opener out on the road as well as they have to go to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United. The Blades were one of the early front-runners for promotion last season but fell away over the second half of the season. Can they get back in the picture?

Sheffield United News and Form

The Blades had a blistering start in the Championship last season after their promotion from League One. They were a real force to be reckoned with at Bramall Lane and that makes them very appealing to come away with the wind in this one. At 5/4 odds in the match outright as well* (Betting Odds were taken from July 31st, 2018 at 8:46 p.m.), we like that as one of our top betting tips for Sheffield United v Swansea. Ultimately the Blades couldn’t sustain their form over the course of the season and they ended up down in tenth place but overall it was a pretty big success for them having just been promoted to the second tier for that season.

The question is, can they push on from there? They have been relatively quiet in the summer transfer market but did spend £4 million on John Egan from Brentford which was a big investment. But they shipped off David Brooks to Bournemouth for almost triple that so they have spending cash. In the bet365 correct score market a Sheffield United 1-0 is sitting at a good tempting price of 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from July 31st, 2018 at 8:46 p.m.), especially given the home form of Sheffield United against Swansea. Seven of Sheffield United’s home wins last season in the league were by a one-goal margin.

Swansea News and Form

So how do Swansea respond having suffered relegation last season? That was rough on the club and boss Graham Potter has some work to do here. They have never been a club with a great deal of cash to splash around and they haven’t done that in the summer. So it is pretty much as they were last season really, which is a good thing for them. That is plenty experience of top-flight football that their squad has had, and that should be able to steel them for a decent season in the season tier.

One of the huge problems that Swansea had last season was putting the ball in the back of the net and we’re not entirely sure where the goals are going to come from them for them this season? Jordan Ayew? Wilfried Bony? We are going to take a chance on both teams not to score at 5/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from July 31st, 2018 at 8:46 p.m.). Swansea results in the pre-season won’t have instilled a lot of confidence having lost three in a row ahead of the new season.

Sheffield United v Swansea Head to Head

This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since the 2010/11 Championship season and on that occasion, the two of them traded home wins. Four of the last five meetings between Sheffield United and Swansea have ended in a win for the home side. In the last six meetings (all Championship fixtures) Sheffield United are up with a W3 D1 L2 record. All three of those wins for them were on home soil.

Who will win – Sheffield United v Swansea Predictions

We are leaning on the home side to come up with the points. They produced some great performances on home soil last season and they won’t make life easy for the Swans. It’s not an easy place for anyone to visit. Back the Blades to open with a three-point haul.
