It's the Welsh derby as Ole Gunnar Solksjaer takes his Cardiff side up the M4 to face Swansea City and we have free football betting tips.
Lets not beat around the bush there is a huge unknown factor here and that is the sacking of Michael Laudrup. More specifically the reaction of the players to the sacking of Michael Laudrup.
Swansea have placed club captain Garry Monk in charge for the game against Cardiff for the “foreseeable future”. Monk played with Swansea as they moved up through the divisions and is seen as Swansea City through and through. Also he is one of the old school players English players that has come up with the Swans through the divisions. There in might be either a source of tension or unity.
I say tension because of reports of a bust up involving Garry Monk and Spaniard central defender Chico Flores. Chico has been one of Swansea's best players this season and if Monk's appointment means the fracturing of the dressing room along Spanish non-Spanish lines then Swansea are going to be in trouble.
The caveat to this is that Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins doesn't seem to make many mistakes regarding managerial appointments. So as said it's a huge unknown.
That said the the odds of a Swansea victory are 5/6 on Bet Victor with a draw being 11/4 and a Cardiff win being 15/4at Bet365
That means that a £10 bet on a Cardiff win would yield just shy of £50. Given the relative form of these sides and Swansea's disarray is a bet that is too good to ignore.
Swansea were woeful against West Ham and are in terrible form in general. They have only picked up 33 points in 35 games since winning the League Cup 11 months ago.
Cardiff have not been much better but with Solksjaer getting his feet under the table there has been a gradual improvement. They played well against Man City and Man Utd. They also won their cup games and came from a goal down to beat Norwich last week.
Against Norwich Wilfred Zaha was the standout performer and I reckon he might be the difference between the two sides here. Also after watching Andy Carroll destroy Swansea last week it's worth looking to the, on his day, unplayable Kenwyne Jones and backing him to do the same. Jones is 7/2 to score anytime on Bet365.
Lastly, since it is a derby it is unlikely there will be many goals. Under 2.5 goals scored is 4/5 at bet365.
