FREE BETS FOR CARDIFF CITY IN CARLING CUP
Crystal Palace and Cardiff are two games away from a Wembley Cup final and one of these Championship clubs could become the first to win the Football League Cup from outside the top flight since Sheffield Wednesday’s famous victory against mighty Manchester United in 1991.
Crystal Palace have home advantage for the first leg of the Carling Cup semi final on Tuesday but find themselves slight underdogs against promotion-chasing Cardiff City. Victor Chandler bets 15/8 for Crystal Palace to take an advantage to Cardiff for the second leg on 24 January, offering Cardiff at 8/5 with odds of 23/10 for the first leg to finish with honours even.
Palace are 5/4 with William Hill to qualify to meet the winners of Manchester City and Liverpool in the other Carling Cup semi final with Cardiff odds-on at 4/6 at bet365. Both Palace and Cardiff went out of the FA Cup in the 3rd round at the weekend and bookies are not giving either side a great chance of emulating Sheffield Wednesday, Crystal Palace are outsiders to win the Carling Cup outright at 12/1 with bet365 and Cardiff are available at 9/1 with the same bookmaker.
Malky Mackay made wholesale changes to the Cardiff side for the FA Cup tie against Premier League West Brom at the Hawthorns and it is a credit to the strength of the squad that Cardiff went out fighting in the 4-2 defeat. Winger Craig Conway played his first full 90 minutes in over a month at West Brom and is confident that Cardiff can grab the initiative at Selhurst Park on Tuesday.
“We have a massive cup game at Palace, a chance to get to a final,” said Conway.
“We are playing another Championship side. Over two legs it will be tough against Palace but we go there with confidence. We’ve been doing well in the League and the Carling Cup, so hopefully we can go and get the right result at Palace and come back to our place for the second leg feeling good.”
Scotland striker Kenny Miller is 2/1 at Coral to add to the goal he scored in the Carling Cup quarter final against Blackburn. Miller was signed from Turkish club Bursaspor in the summer and is Cardiff’s leading scorer this season with nine goals in all competitions.
Cardiff can brag to have the better head-to-head record in six consecutive seasons competing with Crystal Palace in the Championship and in that time have managed 3 wins at Selhurst Park, most recently in the 2009/10 season when the Bluebirds won 2-1
