The footballing calendar looks like being decimated by the weather on Saturday, but hopefully the Premier League will see some action, and we have a betting tip for the clash between 9th and 10th in the table when Stoke City travel to Swansea.

Match: Swansea v Stoke City
Betting tip: Lay Swansea
Best Odds: 2.22 at Betfair
Swansea v Stoke Betting tipKick Off: 15:00 19/01/2013 (GMT)

Swansea are in the middle of some testing cup games, and having been knocked out of the FA Cup by Arsenal in midweek, they face Stoke in the League before playing the second leg of their League Cup semi final versus Chelsea. All the cup action does seem to have distracted Swansea somewhat, and they have won just one of their last seven. Indeed, the Liberty Stadium has not been hugely productive for them all season, as they have recorded just three wins from eleven contests. Odds for a home win look a little short then, and coupled with the robust performances that Stoke have put in, taking on the hosts looks the value play. The Potters have lost four of eleven away – but only once to sides outside of the top three. Prior to games versus Manchester City and Chelsea, they went ten games unbeaten. Back them to avoid defeat here.
