Ladbrokes Bookmaker Latest Betting Odds: Sunderland 10/11, draw 5/2, Swansea 15/4, plus Ladbrokes free bets to pick up.
There isn’t a team in the whole of English football currently that’s generating more plaudits than Swansea City – or better known as “Swanselona” to many.
Their 3-2 defeat of Arsenal, and the style in which they achieved it in, have made people sit up and notice Brendon Rodgers’ side as one of the most, if not the most, attractive footballing side in the Premier League.
Not that the markets have cut them any slack for their tricky away trip to Sunderland. The Mackems have been installed as the warm favourites (10/11 Bwin) while Swansea can be backed around the 15/4 (Victor Chandler) mark. The draw is best priced at 5/2 (Stan James).

The odds-compilers reasoning behind Swansea’s monster price comes down to their shocking away form; one win in 10 Premier League games is relegation form and they need to address that part of their game if they are to consolidate in this league. Sunderland, however, have looked to put any fears of relegation behind them and are doing more than just consolidating, their on a charge up the table. Life has been seemingly breathed into the club since Martin O’Neill has taken over.
Late goals against Blackburn, QPR and Manchester City in that time probably yielded O’Neill’s team around six extra points and a goal to be scored after the 76th minute in this game has been made a decent looking 4/5 chance (Sportingbet).
But Sunderland have a torrid recent record against the Swans, failing to beat their Welsh opponents since April 1964, losing four and drawing the remaining three, including the 0-0 between the sides earlier this season. Its 9/1 (Ladbrokes) for the same scoreline this weekend.
If you are keen to oppose the Swans on the road and want to take a bigger price on offer than just the outright Sunderland win, then backing a 1-0 (6/1 Ladbrokes) or 2-0 (15/2 Coral) home win could prove profitable, as Swansea have failed to score in three of their last five away trips.
