Cardiff City have lost four of their last five Premier League games and a trip to the Ethiad Stadium to take on Manchester City is not a remedy for breaking a losing streak. Cardiff replaced manager Mackay with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the team responded with a win in the Fa Cup in Newcastle. Unfortunately though they followed up that good win with a loss against West Ham and have fallen back into the relegation zone, but with a talented strikeforce including Frazer Campbell, Craig Bellamy, Peter Odemwingie there is always a chance that the Bluebirds can score.
At home the Manchester City team seem to be the best in the league, scoring freely and often City produce some amazing football in front of their home fans. The Ethiad stadium will again expect a big performance from their team tomorrow and with the return of Sergio Aguro to the fold it could be a long day at the office for Cardiff City and their defence. Manchester City have so much talent up front with Dzeko, Negredo, and Aguero that you have to feel for the Cardiff backline that will face them tomorrow, add in Ya Ya toure, Navas and Silva coming from midfield and its frightening how good the Citizens could be on their day.

Straight up I think Manchester City are going to abliterate Cardiff tomorrow, sorry to all the Bluebirds fans but this Manchester City team at home is a juggernaut that I think will be very very hard to stop. There is now value in the money line but taking Manchester City -2 should be a really good investment. I actually also like City -.5 in the first half. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
