Swansea City vs Middlesbrough top free betting tips

This match between Swansea City and Middlesbrough is a hard one to call. Both teams on paper have excellent sides, albeit Middlesbrough is without a few players through injury. Recent form suggests that both teams are poor. Middlesbrough has won just one of their previous five matches, losing the other four while Swansea City won just once in their previous seven fixtures, a 2-1 away win over Rotherham United.

Anytime goalscorer prediction: Emmanuel Latte Lath to Score Anytime

Middlesbrough's Emmanuel Latte Lath has scored three times in his previous three matches including two goals against Leeds United at Elland Road. The way Middlesbrough set up means they often create chances with just Leicester, Leeds and Blackburn creating more big chances than Middlesbrough this season. Latte Lath has shown lately that he has a knack for being in the right place at the right time. As long as Middlesbrough can create a chance for Latte Lath, he will take it.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

This prediction may come as a surprise given how attacking both sides are but with the bad both teams have been playing recently, we can not see too many goals in this encounter. Two of the previous four head-to-head meetings has seen 2.5 goals or less scored with Middlesbrough winning 1-0 at the Riverside in 2021 and then a 1-1 draw being played out in the reverse fixture.

Correct score prediction: 1-1 Draw

We predict that Swansea and Middlesbrough will play out a 1-1 draw. Michael Carrick's Middlesbrough are currently going through an injury crisis with their injured players being good enough to almost make up a starting eleven which could compete in the Championship. Swansea currently have no players out injured which gives them a slight advantage but with how good Middlesbrough are regardless of their injuries, we can not see Swansea walking away with all three points and instead the points being shared.
