Manchester United saw their chance at a top-four finish disappear last weekend in disappointing draw against Huddersfield. That’s one win in their last six league games now that they have produced. They get the chance to sign off on a positive note as they entertain Cardiff who suffered relegation last weekend. Read our Manchester United v Cardiff betting tips for more.
Man Utd 1/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 6th, 2019 at 9:40 p.m.)
Manchester United’s season will end without a shot at a top-four finish. They have taken only the two points from their last four league games now in what has been a terribly poor finish. If they can overturn a one-point deficit to Arsenal (two points really considering they are far worse off in goal difference to the Gunners) then United could steal fifth. The home record of the Red Devils this season is 10 D6 L2 and really it is in their home games against the stronger sides where they have failed. They have gone D4 L2 in their home games against the other top seven sides, leaving all their wins coming against teams eighth or lower.
United have averaged 1.8 goals per home game, managing to take a clean sheet in just 11% of home fixtures. 72% of league games at Old Trafford have gone over 2.5 goals and of the ten home victories they have recorded, seven of them have been by a one-goal margin. The Red Devils have no clean sheet in their last ten league games, home and away, none in their last five at Old Trafford. Manchester United have been leading at half time in nine of their home games, which is good, but they have conceded 74% of their goals at Old Trafford in the second period of games.
The Red Devils were 5-1 winners at Cardiff in December
United are undefeated in eight against the Bluebirds
Both teams have scored in one of the last six meetings
Cardiff have lost to nil on their last three visits to Old Trafford
The Bluebirds are on a three-match losing streak. They could not do enough to keep their survival hopes alive until the final weekend of the season. So they are heading down. Their away record for the season in the EPL reads W3 D2 L13 and in that campaign, they have managed just eleven away goals. That is an average of 0.6 per game. Less than half of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals. Each of Cardiff’s last five away games have actually ended under the goal line.
In total, the Bluebirds have taken a clean sheet in 22% of their away games this season in the top flight. Cardiff have lost four of their last five away games (W1) the one bright moment in that sequence coming against Brighton. Of their thirteen away defeats, eight of them have been by a one-goal margin only. Cardiff haven’t been involved in an away draw in any of their last nine on the road. They have been losing at the halftime break in exactly half of their road games for the term. Nine of the 11 goals which they have scored on their travels this season have come in the second half of games.
The Red Devils surely can’t miss the boat in this one. The wind will have been knocked out of the sails of Cardiff after last weekend’s loss and therefore this should produce the home win. The Manchester United to win to nil option looks a decent proposition.

This is a big game for Cardiff as they have to produce a victory to try and keep their survival hopes alive. They are five points away from safety with just the two to play. Basically, if they don’t better whatever Brighton manage on the weekend, they will be down. Crystal Palace are safe up near mid-table. Read our Cardiff v Crystal Palace betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 17/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 2nd, 2019 at 7:34 p.m.)
Cardiff have to produce a win here. Last weekend they missed a big opportunity at the already relegated Fulham to get something on the board. The Bluebirds lost that game 1-0. That is back to back league defeats for them now and they have lost five of their last six played. Cardiff have failed to hit the back of the net in four of their last five. On home soil, they have also taken back to back defeats, but those were tough games against Chelsea and Liverpool.
The overall home form of Cardiff this season is W6 D2 L10 but all of the wins that they have taken have been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. The Bluebirds are actually W5 D2 L1 in their eight home games this season against teams currently 11th or lower. So that’s a pretty good return. Cardiff have averaged just a tiny shade over a goal per home game. 61% of Cardiff’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals. They have been level at half time in 10 of their home games.
There was a 0-0 draw between Cardiff and Palace in December
Palace are unbeaten in three against the Bluebirds
Cardiff have won three of their last four at home over Palace in all competitions
Both teams have scored in three of the last eleven in all competitions
Crystal Palace played out a 0-0 home draw against Everton last weekend. They not playing for anything at the moment, but the notable thing about their season so they have done a lot better away from home than at Selhurst Park. So that could be bad news for Cardiff. Palace have won four of their last five away games (L1) and that is part of an overall away record of W8D2 L8 that they have produced so far. In their away games Palace have scored at an average of 1.6 goals per game.
So they certainly have the form behind them. But they will be facing a very desperate Cardiff side. Of the eight away wins that they have taken this season, four have been by one goal margin and four by a two-goal margin. Palace have actually been ahead at the halftime break in exactly half of their away games, which is a superb return. They have, however, conceded 79% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures. Just to put their away season into context, Palace have the best home record of all teams outside of the Big Six.
The draw in the match outright looks to be a pretty good proposition for this game. Cardiff have been struggling in front of goal and there is enough about the away form of Palace to go and hold their own. Draw.

Fulham have won their last two league games. So they are looking as if they are finishing the season in a bit of a positive mood. That could spell a bit of trouble for Cardiff though. The Bluebirds badly need a win in this one as they start the weekend four points from safety. Can they get the better of the Cottagers in a huge game? Read our Fulham v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 25th, 2019 at 7:36 p.m.)
So it is back to back wins for Fulham in the league having taken clean sheet victories over Bournemouth and Everton. Where was that form before they got relegated? At least it is a positive end to the term for them as they head back to the Championship. The Cottagers are W5 D3 L9 at home this season in the top flight and their last home game, they produced the 2-0 success over Everton. That snapped a four-match losing streak that the Cottagers had been on at home. Granted each of those four games were against a current top six side, in what was a devastating run of fixtures for Fulham.
The Cottagers have averaged 1.24 goals per home game this season, but they have conceded at an average of 1.9 per game. They have found the back of the net in six of their last seven league games, so that has been a big improvement from them. Fulham have managed a clean sheet in just 12% of home games this season and they have been losing at the halftime break in 9 home fixtures. The Cottagers have only opened the scoring in six home fixtures this season. Only two sides have a worst home record in the EPL than Fulham have.
Cardiff took a 4-2 home win over Fulham earlier this season
Fulham have lost only one of their last eight against Cardiff
Fulham are undefeated in four home games against the Bluebirds
Six of the last seven meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
The Bluebirds lost last weekend against Liverpool, which is no shame at all. They actually did well to be sitting level at the halftime break, but couldn’t stick in there for what would have been a valuable point. That is four defeats in their last five league games, the one exception being a lifeline victory out at Brighton in their last away game. Cardiff have won three times on the road this season in the top flight and two of those were against bottom-five teams. The positive for Cardiff is that they have remained unbeaten in their seven games against teams with them in the bottom five.
Cardiff are W5 D2 from those games. Overall this season the Bluebirds are W3 D2 L12 on their travels but they need to dig out another in this one. They have been a low scoring side away from home this season as they have only netted eleven goals. They have conceded at an average of 1.75 goals per away game. Less than half of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. In total Cardiff have taken a clean sheet in 24% of their road fixtures. Eight of their twelve away defeats this season in the top flight have been by a margin of at least two goals. Cardiff have been trailing at halftime in 9 of their 19 away games. They have scored 82% of their road goals in the second half of fixtures.
Cardiff actually have a good record against the sides down near the foot of the table with them. That means that they will have a chance in this one, even though Fulham have hit a bit of form. This means a lot more to the visitors. Away win.
25th April 2019 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
This is a bit of an unenviable task for Cardiff in this one as they have to try and shut down the title-chasing Liverpool. Cardiff picked up a win in midweek to give themselves a shot at survival. Liverpool also took a win last weekend in their final game against one of the other big six teams in the division. Will they continue to drive on towards the finish line? Read our Cardiff v Liverpool betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 11:57 p.m.)
There is a tough task ahead for Cardiff in this one. They snapped a three-match losing streak in midweek with a 2-0 away win at the slumping Brighton. That leaves Cardiff heading into the weekend of top-flight action three points from safety. But in their final four games of the season, they have to go up against Liverpool in this one and then on the final day of the season make a trip to Manchester United. So they are really going to have to dig out something special to get themselves safe. Anything out of this home fixture against a high flying Liverpool would be a huge bonus for the Bluebirds.
The home record of Cardiff this season is W6 D2 L9 but they have lost three of their last four there (W1). The Bluebirds have managed 19 goals on home soil this season but problematically they have conceded at just under two goals per home fixture. 65% of all of Cardiff’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. In total Cardiff have earned a clean sheet in 29% of their home games which is just about average. Cardiff have scored 63% of their home goals this season in the second period of fixtures. Their record against the big six teams in the Premier League this season is not good as they have lost all 10 such fixtures.
A Liverpool are on a 4-1 home win over Cardiff in October
Liverpool have won all three of their previous Premier League meetings
The Reds have scored 13 goals in their last three games against Cardiff
Each of the last four meetings in all competitions have ended over 3.5 goals
With a bit of something special from Mo Salah last weekend, Liverpool produced a 2-0 home victory over Chelsea. Three of their four remaining games now are against sides currently in the bottom half of the table, with the exception being Wolves. So their title hopes are still very much alive and kicking at the moment and they will be looking for their third straight Premier League away win on Sunday. This season out on the road Liverpool have produced a record of W11 D5 L1 and they are undefeated in their last six away from Anfield.
The victory over Chelsea last weekend was their first clean sheet in five Premier League games. Liverpool have conceded in their last two road fixtures which were against Fulham and Southampton. But still, Liverpool have only conceded the 10 away goals all season at an average of 0.6 per game. In attack, they have scored an average of 1.7 goals per away fixture. They have claimed a clean sheet in 47% of their road games this season. Home and away Liverpool are undefeated in their last 13 top-flight games and of the goals that they have scored out on the road this season 66% of them have been after the halftime break. Liverpool have scored at least two goals in each of their last five league games played.
Liverpool don’t look as if they are going to slip up between now and the end of the season. They are pulling out wins when they are playing all that well and that is really not much opponents can do about that. Liverpool can get the win on the board in this one with a clean sheet.

Brighton v Cardiff Premier League Preview, 16th April 7.45pm
Brighton had a bad day at the office on the weekend as they suffered a hammering at home against Bournemouth. That leaves the Seagulls still with a threat of relegation hanging over them. Cardiff are pretty much in the same boat with a big fight against relegation on their hands. The three points in this game now become massively crucial for both. Read our Brighton v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 13th, 2019 at 4:55 p.m.)
The Seagulls took a battering at home on the weekend against Bournemouth and that dropped them to one place above the relegation zone. There is a five-point buffer between themselves and Cardiff, who they take on here. So three points for Brighton should really get them safe at the end of the day. Defeat and there would be huge stress put upon them. Brighton are currently on a three-match losing streak and have lost three of their last four at the Amex in the top flight as well.
Brighton have a home record of W6 D4 L1 this season. They have claimed just the one win in their last six there (W1 D1) so are having their struggles. Brighton average just a tiny bit over a goal per home game this season. They have taken a clean sheet in 31% of all their home games. 61% of the goals that they have shipped at the Amex have come after the half time break. Brighton have opened the scoring in less than half of their Premier League home games. Of the six wins that the Seagulls have earned at home this season, five of them have been by a one-goal margin. Only the current bottom three have worse home records than Brighton this season.
Brighton lost 2-1 at Cardiff back in early November
The Seagulls have won only one of their last seven against the Bluebirds
Brighton are undefeated in their last five at home against Cardiff (W1 D4)
Just two of the last nine meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
So this is pretty much a must-win situation for Cardiff at this point. They need a response and they need it now. They lost at Burnley over the weekend, their third straight league defeat. However, what will give them a bit of hope is that they are undefeated, home and away, against sides currently in the bottom five of the table with them (W4 D2). They have to leave it all out there on the pitch at the Amex. However, they don’t have away form behind them at all right now. Cardiff are on a three-match losing streak on their travels.
The Bluebirds have only scored the nine goals away from home this season and all but one of those were scored in the second half of matches. They have conceded at an average of 1.9 per game. Cardiff have collected a clean sheet in just three road games but don’t have one in any of their last six. Cardiff have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three away games. In no away game this season have Cardiff been leading at half time, in fact, they have been losing at the break in 9 of 16 games. Huddersfield have scored fewer league goals than Cardiff this season in the Premier League.
What a scenario we have here for this game at the Amex. There may not be too much to choose between the two of them on the night in what is likely to be a tense a fair. However, the home advantage may just give the Seagulls the edge in the fixture. Home win.
15th April 2019 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
It has been back to back league wins for Burnley now in the league and they have moved well clear of the drop zone with that. Cardiff are still looking like the ones most likely to join Fulham and Huddersfield in relegation this season, the Bluebirds six points from safety heading into midweek action. Read our Burnley v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 9th, 2019 at 11:32 p.m.)
The Clarets gave themselves a huge boost last weekend with a great 3-1 away win at Bournemouth. That leaves them standing on back-to-back Premier League wins at the moment. That burst of form has seen them claim up towards mid-table and away from the threat of relegation. The home form of Burnley this season reads W6 D2 L8 so it hasn’t been great from the Clarets at Turf Moor. However, they have produced a W4 D1 L2 record there in their last seven so that has been a dramatic improvement from them. Burnley have averaged 1.3 goals per home game this season.
62% of all league fixtures at Turf Moor have gone over 2.5 goals. Burnley have claimed a clean sheet in 25% of their home fixtures this season, but they have conceded at an average of 1.75 goals per home game. The Clarets are currently on an 11 match scoring streak on home soil in the top flight and of the goals which they have produced at home 62% of them have been scored in the first half of fixtures. Burnley have only opened the scoring in seven of their home games this season. Overall home and away, only four sides have a worse defensive record then Burnley currently do in the top flight.
Burnley took a 2-1 away win at Cardiff in September
Seven of the last ten meeting have ended in a draw in all competitions
The last six meetings at Turf Moor have ended in a draw
Only three of the last ten meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Cardiff are starting to look in serious trouble at the moment with five defeats in their last six Premier League games played. In their last fixture, they suffered a 2-0 defeat out at Manchester City which leaves them with back-to-back defeats. Out on the road, this season Cardiff have earned a record of just W2 D2 L11 so they have had a really tough time of things. Cardiff have lost four of their last five away games (W1). Their defence has conceded at an average of 1.9 goals per away game this season.
They have had their issues at the other end of the pitch as well having scored only nine goals in their 15 away fixtures. Less than half of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Cardiff have claimed a clean sheet in three away fixtures this season but they are without one in any of their last five on the road. Seven of Cardiff’s 11 away defeats this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. Cardiff have conceded 61% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures. And incidentally, they have scored eight of their nine away goals this season after the halftime break.
Burnley got a huge lift last weekend and they should be able to follow that up on home soil here. Three points would leave their survival hopes looking pretty strong at the end of the day. Home win in the match outright.

The Citizens eased to a win over Fulham on the weekend to keep their title challenge well on track. They will be expected to deliver once again in another comfortable looking home game against a relegation-threatened side.

Man City 1/12
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 31st, 2019 at 4:16 p.m.)
The Citizens were comfortable 2-0 winners away at Fulham on the weekend. They were pretty much coasting in the game after getting their goals in the first half hour of the game. They didn’t concede a shot on target against them. That win moved City on to a seven-match winning streak in the league at the moment, having claimed a victory in all but one of their last 13 played. The Citizens have conceded just the three goals in their last ten played, home and away, and everything looks to be coming together at the moment for them.
Their home record is W15 L1 this season from their sixteen played. In their campaign at home, they have averaged 3.3 goals per game, conceding at under a goal per game on average. 62% of their home fixtures have ended up finishing over 3.5 goals. The Citizens have taken a clean sheet in 38% of league home games. Sergio Aguero was on the scoresheet yet again on the weekend, the Argentinian leading the Premier League Golden Boot race. He left the game against Fulham in the second half with an apparent knock. Only three of Man City’s home wins have been by just the one-goal margin. City have been leading at half time in 11 of their 16 home games.
Manchester City won 5-0 at Cardiff earlier this season
The Citizens are on a three-match winning streak over Cardiff
Man City are undefeated in eight at home against the Bluebirds
Man City are W2 L1 in their third previous EPL games against Cardiff
Cardiff looked on course for a great home win over Chelsea on the weekend. But the visiting Blues scored a controversial offside goal against Cardiff six minutes before time, before netting a winner in the 90th minute. That left Cardiff in relegation trouble still and there may be a tough challenge ahead for them in getting any change out of the Citizens. Cardiff are just W2 D2 L10 on their top-flight travels this season, with goals hard to come by. Are they likely to do enough defensively over 90 minutes against the Citizens?
Cardiff have conceded at an average of 1.9 goals per away game this season and their current road form has seen them lose three of their last four on their travels (W1). Their record away from home against teams currently in the top half of the table is W1 L7. Cardiff have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last four away from home and their half time away record is W0 D7 L7. The Bluebirds have scored 8 of their 9 away goals in the second half of matches, while they have conceded 65% of their away goals after the halftime break. Fulham are the only side to have conceded more league goals this season than Cardiff have done.
This should be a fairly routine game for the Citizens on home soil against a side with relegation hanging over them. It is likely that City are going to get out of this with a clean sheet victory in the bag. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Aguero score again?

The threat of relegation still hangs over Cardiff. They did give themselves a lifeline last time out though with a victory over Bournemouth. They start the weekend three points from safety.

Cardiff got a fantastic win over West Ham the last time out in the league. They needed that too because they had been on a three-match EPL losing streak. That was a home victory they got over West Ham, which leaves them at W2 L2 in their last four at home. At home this season in the league, Cardiff are at W6 D2 L8. In their four home games played against sides currently in the top-six, the Bluebirds have lost each of them. Cardiff have tallied 18 home goals but they have conceded at almost two goals per home game.
The Bluebirds have banked a clean sheet in 31% of their home games, which isn’t all that bad for a newly promoted side at all. Their last two wins on home soil have both been with a clean sheet, both 2-0 wins actually over Bournemouth and West Ham. Those are the only two wins on home soil they have taken in their last seven. 62% of Cardiff’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Of the goals which they have scored at home, 61% of them have been after the half time break. Cardiff have only opened the scoring in three home games. Bottom side Huddersfield are the only side to have scored fewer league goals than Cardiff have.
Chelsea earned a 4-1 home win over Cardiff in September
The Blues are on a four-match winning streak against Cardiff
Chelsea have scored at least two goals in each of their last four against Cardiff
Cardiff lost their one previous EPL home game against Chelsea
Chelsea’s poor away form over the second half of the season continued the last time they are out in action. The Blues suffered a 2-0 loss at Everton, despite having totally dominated the first 45 minutes. They badly lacked a finishing touch. Chelsea have returned a very poor W1 L4 record in their last five away games, not scoring a single goal in any of those away defeats. So they may be a little vulnerable in this one. In those four defeats, Chelsea shipped a total of fourteen goals. So their away slump leaves Chelsea at W8 D1 L6 on their travels this season. However, they have won all seven of their away games against teams currently 13th or lower.
Chelsea have returned 21 away goals this season, but have conceded 23. 73% of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals. While Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in a third of their away games, they have gone without one in any of their last five away games. Chelsea have been losing at the half time break in three road fixtures. Chelsea have opened the scoring in 9 of their 15 away games and five of their eight away wins have been by a one-goal margin. Five of their six away defeats have been by a margin of at least two goals.
Chelsea are not exactly trustworthy at the moment on their top-flight travels. But given their only recent away win was at Fulham who are also in the bottom three like Cardiff are, the Blues look the stronger option. Chelsea to win & both teams to score.

West Ham 6/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 6th, 2019 at 7:38 p.m.)
Cardiff were 2-0 losers at Wolves last weekend. That was their third straight league defeat and it leaves them at W2 D1 L5 in their last eight. They have not found any joy at home recently either having lost their last two on home soil in the top flight. This season Cardiff are W5 D2 L8 on home soil. They have shipped a total of eight goals across their last two home games, which were fixtures against Watford and Everton. It has been just one goal in their last three league games played now for Cardiff.
Cardiff have scored 16 goals in their 15 home games this season, but their defence hasn’t been good. They have conceded at over two goals per game on average which is hurting them badly. The Bluebirds have managed to produced just the one win in their last six on home soil, which was a 2-0 success over Bournemouth, one of four home clean sheets that they have earned this season. 67% of Cardiff’s home league games have gone above 2.5 goals. The Welsh club have conceded at least two goals in each of their three league games, home and away.
West Ham took a comfortable 3-1 home win over Cardiff earlier this season
The Hammers have won six of the last seven meetings in all competitions
Cardiff have no clean sheet in seven against the Hammers
West Ham have scored at least two goals in six of their last seven against Cardiff
The Hammers earned a good 2-0 home win over Newcastle last weekend. While that is their second win in their last three games (L1) it is just one of three taken in their last eight in the top flight, home and away (D2 L3). Away from home, this season in the EPL West Ham are at W4 D3 L7 and they have not managed to produce too much on their recent travels either. West Ham have taken just one point from the last fifteen available to them away from home. They scored just the one goal in those five games as well.
So things have not been happening for them away from home at all. The Irons have scored 14 goals on their travels at an average of exactly one goal per game. They have conceded an average of 1.5 per game. Less than half of their away fixtures have gone over the 2.5 goal line. West Ham will be looking for just their second away clean sheet of the season this weekend. The Hammers are on a six-match away streak with no clean sheet recorded. They have conceded 63% of their road goals in the second half of fixtures this season.
Cardiff may be able to dig out a point in this one because the Hammers haven’t been very good away from home recently. The draw does sit nicely as a proposition in the match outright.

The Bluebirds suffered a heavy loss on Friday night but managed to stay out of the relegation zone. They have just a one-point cushion between themselves and the bottom three. Everton come for a visit and they look unsettled having lost their last three in a row. Read our Cardiff v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 7:43 p.m.)
The Bluebirds suffered a 5-1 home reverse against Watford on Friday night, which was a big blow. They had won their previous two league games. It leaves Cardiff with W5 D2 L7 record on home soil this season and W1 D1 L2 in their last four on home soil. The Bluebirds have returned 16 home goals this season and 64% of their fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals. That is because the Bluebirds have conceded at an average of two goals per home fixture.
Cardiff had taken back to back clean sheets at home before the loss against Watford. Cardiff have taken a clean sheet in 29% of their home games, and five of the seven league victories that they have recorded (home and away) have been by a one-goal margin. The Bluebirds have been level at the break in eight of their fourteen home games. 62% of the home goals produced by them have been in the first half of matches. They have only opened the scoring in two league home games this term though.
Everton earned a 1-0 homer win over Cardiff earlier this season
Cardiff are winless in four against the Toffees (W2 D1)
Each of the last five meetings have ended under 2.5 goals
Everton have three clean sheets in their last four against the Bluebirds
The Toffees suffered a 1-0 loss at Watford last time out in league action, which left them on a three-match losing streak. They should be well rested though after not having played over the weekend. Still, their form has been really poor lately and they have actually lost six of their last eight (W2) in the EPL. Out on the road, Everton have managed just the three wins this season (D3 L7). All three of those though were against sides currently in the bottom half of the table.
However, they have lost by a one-goal margin at Brighton and Southampton this season, two of the current bottom five. Everton have scored 15 goals in their 13 away games this season with 54% of their road fixtures ending over 2.5 goals. The Toffees have been level at the break in 9 of their 13 away games. Of those nine half time draws, seven of them were 0-0 score lines. Everton have conceded 72% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures.
Everton’s form has been really poor lately but they will be the fresher of the two sides. That should help them get something out of the game. But we have to look towards the draw though as Cardiff need to stick in there at home in games like this.
