Swansea v Sunderland
Saturday 3:00pm BST
After losing 5-0 last week it’s impossible to back Swansea at 2.10. Sunderland can win again this week and we’re on at 3.30 with Bet365.
Swansea matches are goal-fests at the moment, scoring themselves (except last week) and shipping loads. Sunderland on the other hand are really playing well – 3 wins in their last 4 and now just 1 point from safety. Obviously it’s still early in the season but the signs are far better now than they were a month ago.
Sunderland won the last meeting between the 2 clubs, 4-2 after Jermain Defoe got things going early. Sunderland’s record in Wales hasn’t been too bad over the last 5 seasons, winning 1 and drawing 3.
When looking at goals in our 10-match sample we see a real mixed bag – 6 goals last game, 4 out of 10 going Over 3.5 goals as well as 3 goalless encounters – impossible to pick!
Defoe has opened the scoring twice in the last 3 v Swansea with both coming at the Liberty Stadium. Sunderland might be a division or 2 lower without him and he must be a decent chance to open the scoring again.
