Cardiff City vs. Swansea City Betting Preview
For years the whole of South Wales has been waiting for Cardiff City and Swansea City to face each other in the Premier League, and it is finally happening this Sunday.Swansea was promoted to the Premier League in 2011 and has been performing well for the last few years. Michael Laudrup’s side are usually extremely pleasing to watch and Spanish striker Michu is definitely their biggest attacking asset. However, Swansea has just three wins this season and urgently need some more points.
The bookies have made Swansea favorites to win this match, with odds of 13/10 available at Paddy Power while the odds on Cardiff are 11/5 (the same for a draw). However, many believe that the bookies have dismissed Cardiff too quickly.
Having a home advantage in a local derby should never be underestimated and Cardiff will be desperate to win against their near neighbors. The team has been performing well in their first season in the Premier League for 50 years and they could pull out a few surprises in this weekend’s match. Furthermore, if Cardiff do win, it’ll place them above Swansea in the league table.
