The Black Cats have though begun to show some form at home though, having won three of their last four league games at the Stadium of Light and Bet365 price them at 7/5 (2.40) to claim three points.
Swansea for their part have lost only one of their last seven league matches on the road and they can be backed at 2/1 (3.00) to record their fifth away win of the season.
What looks to offer the most attractive option in this game however is backing over 2.5 goals at the generous looking price of evens (2.00).
Sunderland have improved in front of goal in recent weeks, having scored three times against Wigan and West Ham respectively in the last fortnight.
Furthermore they have scored in each of their last five home league matches with this bet paying out in each of Sunderland's last four league matches.
Swansea have displayed throughout the season are no slouches in front of goal and having scored at least two goals at Stamford Bridge, Anfield and the Emirates respectively seem to thrive in the division's bigger stadia.
