Brentford v Cardiff Prediction & Betting Tips – 13th March 201812th March 2018 / lee
Brentford v Cardiff Championship, 13th March 7.45pm
Cardiff are in some unstoppable momentum at the moment after winning once again on the weekend and now are just three points behind leaders Wolves. Brentford are realistically too far back from the play off spots to make a move. Can they dent Cardiff’s form?
Brentford v Cardiff Betting Odds*
Brentford 23/20, Cardiff 5/2, Draw 13/5* (Betting Odds took at 8:01 p.m. on March 12th, 2018)
Brentford News and Form
The Bees have lost just two of their last six games (W3 D1) so aren’t in bad form really. At home, though they have won just one of their last three, which did come in their last home game, a big success over the relegation-threatened Birmingham. Brentford have collected just the one win from six games against sides currently in the top three this season. They are capable of pulling out good successes though as they have beaten Fulham and Aston Villa, both sides currently sitting in the playoffs, already this season. Each of their last three wins at home have been to nil as well. With under half of their games going over 2.5 goals this season, it is worth looking under the goal line at even money odds with bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 8:01 p.m. on March 12th, 2018). Brentford suffered a 1-0 loss out at Millwall on the weekend and each of their last three league outings and five of their last six have gone under the goal line. The Bees have a W7 D8 L2 record then this season on home turf so they have been a pretty strong home side.
Cardiff News and Form
The Bluebirds are really on song at the moment with a six-match winning sequence going after taking a home win over Birmingham on the weekend. They are unbeaten in ten, winning eight of those so are running pretty hot at the moment. They are W2 D2 in their last four on the road and they have shipped only the two goals in those four road games, again a hint that this could be a low scoring game. Both teams not to score at bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 8:01 p.m. on March 12th, 2018) is up at odds of 8/13. Cardiff’s overall away form this season is W8 D4 L5 and they have averaged just 1.2 goals per game away from home. They have taken a clean sheet in 35% of the road games this season and they are carrying that four-match unbeaten streak of form on the road as it stands. They have scored at least one goal in each of their last eight games and in each of their last three on their travels. In the bet365 correct score market a Cardiff 1-0 is at 11/1 with the shortest priced option in that market a 1-1 draw in at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken at 8:01 p.m. on March 12th, 2018).
Brentford v Cardiff Head to Head
Cardiff collected a 2-0 home win over Brentford earlier in the season and that is a W2 D1 record that the Welsh club have taken in their last three against the Bees in the league. Cardiff holds a W1 D1 L1 record from their three previous Championship trips to Brentford. Cardiff have scored at least two goals in eight of their last nine games against the Bees. Both teams have scored in each of the last seven meetings.
Who will win – Brentford v Cardiff Predictions
Hard not to go with Cardiff at this point. They are finding ways to win and while Brentford are doing alright at home, they may slip up. Look for the visitors to win by one goal margin.
