This should be a really interesting clash from South Wales. Cardiff have been gathering some great points on home soil to aid their survival and still need to push for more. Can they upset the Red Devils? Manchester United’s patience ran out and they sacked Jose Mourinho in the week, following a toothless defeat against Liverpool last weekend. Read our Cardiff v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Manchester United 8/13
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 18th, 2018 at 1:37 p.m.)
Cardiff went to Watford last weekend and suffered a narrow 3-2 loss. There was plenty of fight from the Welsh club again though. Back on home soil, they have been doing very well. They are W4 D1 L4 in South Wales this season in the Premier League and have won their last three home games on the bounce in the EPL. Cardiff are W4 L1 in their last five league home games and that could make them a threat to Manchester United in this afternoon kick off. Cardiff have come up with twelve goals in their home games this season, conceding fifteen.
67% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. There has been only the two home league clean sheets from Cardiff this season. There is a big half time trend in their home games. In seven of Cardiff’s nine home games, things have been level at the half time break. They have not drawn any of their last fourteen league games home and away combined. Despite the good home form, they have opened the scoring in just one of their nine home games. Only Burnley and Fulham have conceded more league goals than the Bluebirds
This is the first meeting since the 2013/14 EPL season
Manchester United are unbeaten in their last seven against Cardiff
The Red Devils have won three of their last four visits to Cardiff (D1)
Cardiff conceded exactly two goals in each of their previous EPL games against United
The Red Devils lost 3-1 at Liverpool last weekend and it was another costly defeat for boss Jose Mourinho. He was sacked on Tuesday after yet another mishap. The Red Devils have gone W3 D2 L4 away from home this season, going winless in their last three away from Old Trafford in the EPL (D1 L2). On their top-flight travels, this season Manchester United have posted 15 away goals, but have conceded eighteen. Only four teams have conceded more league goals than United have done this season. That will be four of the current bottom five in the standings.
United have scored in every away game in this season’s EPL so that is a definite positive for them. Knowing that a top-four finish is likely out of the question you could see them start to just play open football. Each of their last seven away games has seen over 2.5 goals. 89% of Manchester United’s EPL away fixtures this term have gone over 2.5 goals. The Red Devils have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last seven road games. United have conceded 61% of their away goals in the first half of matches. They have opened the scoring twice on their travels only and have been ahead at the half time break in just two of their road games this season.
Manchester United are a really unappealing odds-on favourite option in this one in the match outright. It’s hard to see the value there really. They are lacking confidence but have had a shake up. Because of that, they could still scrape over the line. Manchester United to win by a one-goal margin.
18th December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Watford have failed to produce a win in any of their last six games and really are just having a tough in getting things to go their way. They were denied a win in the 96th minute of their game at Everton last Monday for example. Cardiff have done well to pull clear of the drop zone but their away form is pretty questionable. Read our Watford v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 8:43 p.m.)
The Hornets almost got themselves a good win at Everton last weekend. They conceded a 96th-minute equaliser though to deny them. That draw at Goodison Park leaves them with a record of D2 L4 in their last six league games now. At home in the top flight, this term the Hornets have produced a W4 L4 record. They have suffered back to back home defeats though but were against Liverpool and Manchester City just to put that into context. They have won all three home games played against sides currently in the bottom half of the table
The Hornets have scored 11 goals at home, conceding 13 and in total, 88% of their games at Vicarage Road have made it over 2.5 goals. So there’s a strong trend, in fact, the last seven league home games for Watford have gone above the goal line. There has been no clean sheet from Watford in their last six league games and they have conceded at least two in their last two home fixtures. They have scored 73% of their home goals in the second half of games. Watford have conceded the opening goal in five of their eight home games
This is the first meeting since the 2014/15 Championship season
The two traded away wins that season
Cardiff have lost just one of their last seven against Watford (W3 D3 L1)
Watford are winless in three home games against the Bluebirds (D2 L1)
Cardiff did their survival hopes further good with a 1-0 home win over Southampton last weekend. That was more good work from the Bluebirds but their survival hopes seem to be pinned on their home performances. Cardiff are just D1 L6 this season on their top-flight travels. They suffered a 3-1 reverse out at West Ham in their last away game. In their away games Cardiff have only managed to find the back of the net three times in total. That has been a failure to score in 57% of their road games in the EPL.
43% of their away games though have ended up finishing over 3.5 goals this season. They have only banked the one clean sheet on their travels as well. Home and away combined Cardiff have gone without a clean sheet in any of their last five league games. They have been losing at halftime in all but three of their seven away games in the top flight. As a positive, they have scored in each of their last three league fixtures. They have the joint-worst away record in the Premier League alongside Fulham. Only Burnley and Fulham have conceded more goals than the Bluebirds this season
* (betting odds taken on December 11th, 2018 at 9:50 pm)
We are going to predict a home win. Even though they didn’t beat Everton Watford can still take positives from that performance. Cardiff just haven’t delivered enough away from home to warrant a decent look.
14th December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Cardiff will be looking for more home joy as they play host to Southampton on the weekend. This is going to be a big game in the fight against relegation. The Bluebirds have picked up some great results on home soil lately. Will that spell more trouble for Southampton who are a club in transition after the recent sacking of manager Mark Hughes. Read our Cardiff v Southampton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 7:41 p.m.)
Cardiff had another setback in midweek as they went to West Ham and suffered a 3-1 loss. That extended a trend with the Bluebirds as they have alternated between a loss and a win in each of their last five (W2 L3). The positive is, if that continues then they would be due a win on home soil here. The Bluebirds have produced form of W3 D1 L4 at home so far this season. Their last two home successes have both been by a 2-1 scoreline. Their form at home has definitely been on the up as they are W3 L1 in their last four there. In total on home turf Cardiff have come up with 11 goals and they have conceded 15.
75% of their home games in the EPL have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Surprisingly, almost 40% of their home games this season have seen at least five goals. That’s largely down to the defence of Cardiff as they have managed only the one clean sheet at home this season. They are on a run of seven games on home soil without a clean sheet at the moment. Home and away combined they have shipped at least one goal in each of their last twelve. Both teams have scored in 62% of games in Cardiff. The Bluebirds have yet to be winning at half time in any league game this season.
The last league meeting was in the 2013/14 EPL season
There was an away win for both during that season
Cardiff have won five of their last six at home against the Saints
Three of Cardiff’s last five home wins over the Saints have been 2-1 wins
Southampton took another big hit in midweek. New boss Ralph Hasenhuttl watched on as their defence once again fell apart in a 3-1 loss against Spurs. That result leaves Southampton with no win in their last eleven league games. Southampton have alternated between a draw and a loss in each of their last six games. This season on their travels in the top flight, the Saints have come up with seven goals and they have conceded nineteen. 62% of Southampton’s away games have ended over 2.5 goals which largely sums up the difficulties they have been having at the back.
The Saints are on a three-match losing streak on the road and they have shipped twelve goals in those three games. In five of their eight road games, this season the Saints have been losing at half time in five of those. They have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last five (home and away combined) and have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three road games. Southampton are looking to snap a six-match winless away streak. 63% of their away goals conceded have been in the first half of games. Only Cardiff and Fulham have a worse away record than Southampton this season. Only three teams have conceded more goals than they have done.
The fact that Cardiff have been finding ways to pick up good points on home soil should count for something in this one. They may have enough to get past a Southampton side who are still trying to sort their future out.
6th December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Cardiff fought back from a goal down against Wolves to collect three points on Friday. That was their second win in three games as they are fighting for their Premier League survival and doing a good job at the moment. West Ham put some great wind in their sails with a resounding 3-0 away win at Newcastle over the weekend. Read our West Ham v Cardiff betting tips for more.
West Ham 13/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:47 p.m.)
There was a great win for West Ham on the weekends as they made a long trip up north to St James Park and beat Newcastle 3-0. That leaves them with a decent enough record of W2 D2 L1 in their last five league outings. Their home form is just W2 D1 L4 this season though, losing two of their last three there (Spurs and Man City). In their seven home games, so far this season West Ham have come up with the eight goals while having conceded eleven. 57% of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals so it’s hit and miss. Both teams not to score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odd taken on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:53 pm)
West Ham have failed to score in 57% of their home game and the Irons have earned one home clean sheet only this term. They don’t have a clean sheet actually in any of their last four league home games. In their home games this season in the top flight they have also been winning just twice at halftime. With that in mind a half-time draw looks a good fit at 13/10 odds* (betting odd taken on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:53 pm). The Hammers will be feeling the heat if they lose as Cardiff would move to within a point of them.
The Hammers won 2-0 in last season’s corresponding fixture
West Ham also took a League Cup home win over the Bluebirds
The Irons are on a six-match winning streak against Cardiff in all competitions
West Ham have scored at least two goals in each of their last six against Cardiff
Both teams have scored in just one of the last eight meetings
Cardiff fought back from being behind for a 2-1 home win over Wolves on Friday shown great resilience as they try and put some distance between themselves and the drop zone. After their win, they are now W2 L1 in their last three league games. So it’s been better but they are still looking for what would be their first away win of the season in the top flight (D1 L5). The Bluebirds have managed just the two goals out on their top-flight travel this season so far. West Ham to win to nil is at 15/8 odds* (betting odd taken on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:53 pm). Just a third of Cardiff’s away games have made it above the 2.5 goal line.
Cardiff are on a four-match losing streak on their travels at the moment, with just the one clean sheet all season away from home. Under 2.5 goals is at even money odds* (betting odd taken on December 2nd, 2018 at 12:53 pm). The Bluebirds have been losing at half time in four of their six away games this term. With 27 goals conceded in their fourteen league games played, there are clear defensive problems for them. Actually, only two sides (the bottom two of Burnley and Fulham) have conceded more goals than Cardiff have done in this season’s top flight.
West Ham should be full of confidence after their good win at Newcastle on the weekend. Cardiff survival hopes seem to be pinned on their home form. It is likely that the Bluebirds may come up short once again on their travels.
2nd December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Cardiff have a chance to put some pressure on the others inside the bottom side in the Premier League as they kick off on Friday night. A win will move them out of the relegation zone and up into fifteenth. They will playing host to a Wolves side who have lost their way a bit as they have slumped to four defeats in their last five games. Read our Cardiff v Wolves betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 27th, 2018 at 4:54 p.m.)
The Bluebirds suffered a 1-0 loss at Goodison Park against Everton last weekend. That result leaves them at W2 D2 L9 for the season. Their form at home so far this season is W2 D1 L4, but they have won two of their last three on home soil, beating Fulham and Brighton. They have tallied up the nine goals in seven home games, four of those coming in their win over Fulham. At the back, they are averaging two goals per game against them at home. Over 2.5 goals is at 11/8 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:41 pm)
71% of their home fixtures in the league have gone over 2.5 goals so there is a trend. Looking deeper 43% of Cardiff’s home games have gone above 4.5 goals this season. Not too surprisingly with that in mind, Cardiff have only the one home clean sheet this season and none in their last six. They have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last ten league games home and away combined. Only Burnley and Fulham have conceded more league goals than Cardiff have done this season. With all but one of their home games this season being level at home time, the halftime draw is at even money odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:41 pm).
Wolves won their last five to Cardiff in last season’s Championship
Cardiff are W4 L2 in their last six meetings with Wolves
Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings
Things are even at two wins each in their last four meetings in Wales
Wolves suffered quite a big setback on the weekend, losing 2-0 at home against the struggling Huddersfield. That leaves Wolves having taken just one point in their last five league fixtures. Out on the road, Wolves have gone W2 D2 L2 this season. Overall home and away, they have won four of their five games this season against sides currently 14th or lower. Each of the four wins that they have taken in the Premier League this term have been with a clean sheet. But they haven’t taken one in any of their last five games. Both teams to score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 4:41 pm)
Wolves have managed only the four away goals all season so they have been struggling in front of goal. Of those four away goals, three of them have come in the second half of games. But they have done pretty well defensively with only the five goals conceded against them. None of their away games have managed to get over 2.5 goals. They have actually taken a clean sheet in 33% of their away games this season. With just one point from their last two away games, the pressure is going to mounting on them to snap out of this little slump that they are going through.
The home win appeals the most in Cardiff v Wolves betting tips. Wolves are struggling for goals and form at the moment, while the Bluebirds have produced a couple of very important home wins in recent fixtures. Home win.
28th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Toffees earned a good point at Chelsea last time out and will be looking for points to keep them in touch with those directly above them in the top half of the table. They will likely have big appeal as a home banker this weekend as they take on Cardiff who are still stuck in the relegation zone. Read our Everton v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 20th, 2018 at 7:32 p.m.)
Everton earned a good draw out at Chelsea in their last game, a hard-earned point that was for them. But they looked like a decent attacking threat in the game at times. The Toffees have won four of their last six league games (D1 L1) so haven’t been bad at all. Most of their success this season has been on home soil. Everton are W4 D1 L1 in their six at Goodison Park so far this term.
All of their home games this season have been against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. Everton have averaged exactly two goals per game and they have taken a clean sheet in 33% of their home games. They aren’t facing a prolific side in this one of course and Everton to win to nil is at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). Two of Everton’s last three home wins have been with a clean sheet.
Everton took a 2-1 win in this corresponding fixture from the 2013/14 EPL season
The Toffees are on a four-match home winning streak against Cardiff
The 2013/14 EPL meetings were the first time that they have come together since the 1980 FA Cup
Cardiff gave themselves a good boost just before the international break as they scrape out a last-minute winner at home to beat Brighton 2-1. That was their second win of the season, but for them, those two wins have both been on home soil. Cardiff are W0 D1 L4 from their five games out on the road this season and that one point was earned at Huddersfield who are second from bottom.
Cardiff have come up with just the two away goals in their five games so both teams not to score looks an obvious option for the weekend at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 7:35 pm). They are likely to be on the back foot for long periods of this game. They have conceded at over two goals per away game on average so far this season so the 2-0 correct score in favour of Everton will naturally appeal.
Everton should have a comfortable afternoon on home soil in this one. Cardiff pose little threat and the Toffees have shown good attacking intent at home. The straightforward option is Everton to win to nil.
21st November 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Cardiff will be guaranteed to move out of the relegation zone if they could bag themselves three points on Saturday lunchtime against Brighton. The trouble is, Cardiff don’t have much home form going for themselves to be able to pull it off. Brighton were on a good winning streak of form, but that was snapped last weekend in a loss out at Everton. Read our Cardiff v Brighton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 5th, 2018 at 8:54 p.m.)
Cardiff have now lost back to back league games after they slipped to a 1-0 home loss against Leicester last weekend. That leaves them with a pretty miserable W1 D2 L8 record this season in the Premier League. Their recent home form in the top flight has seen them lost four of their last five home games. In their six home fixtures in the Premier League, so far this season Cardiff have produced only the seven goals. Under 2.5 goals is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 4:07 pm) which looks a strong betting tip for Cardiff v Brighton. At the back, they have shipped at an average of over two goals per game at home.
They haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last five home games. If the Bluebirds were to pick up a home win they would jump out of the drop zone ahead of the 3 pm kick-offs on Saturday. In total Cardiff have conceded 24 league goals with only Burnley and bottom side Fulham having conceded more. There is just no easy game for them as they are in big survival mode at the moment. Callum Paterson has scored in two of their last three league games and he is at 10/3 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 4:07 pm).
This the first meeting since the 2017/17 Championship
The Seagulls earned four points from the last league meetings
Two of the last three meetings in Wales have ended in a 0-0 draw
Five of the last eight meetings have produced a drawn result
Both teams have scored in just two of the last five meetings
Brighton had put together a big three-match winning streak for themselves, but winning form was ended last weekend as they lost 3-1 at Everton. That leaves them with away form of W1 D1 L4 this season in the Premier League. They have lost two of their last three (W1) away from the Amex. The Seagulls have only come up with the four away goals this season and just 33% of their road games have made it over 2.5 goals. Only 33% of their away games this season have made it over that 2.5 goal line. This is likely to be a low scoring game. The 0-0 correct score is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 4:07 pm)
The Seagulls have failed to score in half of their away games this season however they have only failed to score in one for their last four away from the Amex. Both teams not to score is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 4:07 pm). Four times this season Brighton have been losing at half-time away from the Amex. On each of those occasions, it was a 1-0 scoreline that they were trailing by at the break. They have been losing 1-0 at half time in six of their eleven league games this season (home and away). Their top scorer this season is Glenn Murray who is the 15/8 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 4:07 pm).
This is likely going to be a really tight game, but we are going to lean on the visitors to get the win on the board. The Seagulls may have enough about them to go and land themselves a narrow win and leave the Bluebirds in bigger trouble.
7th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Liverpool took three points at Huddersfield last weekend to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the table. They will be looking to secure a comfortable three points this weekend at Anfield against Cardiff. The Bluebirds got their first win of the season last weekend as they took advantage of Fulham’s poor defence. Read our Liverpool v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 24th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
Liverpool will be putting their unbeaten streak of form on the line again this weekend after collecting a 1-0 win at Huddersfield last weekend thanks to a strike from Mo Salah. The win on the road last weekend snapped their two-match winless streak (draws against Chelsea and Man City) to return to winning ways. The Reds still are not fluent in front of goals as they have netted only the two goals in their last three league games and under 2.5 goals for this fixture is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 3:45 pm).
The Reds are W3 D1 L0 at Anfield in the Premier League this season, netting eight unanswered goals along the way. Liverpool to win to nil is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 3:45 pm). That has to be some good value for Liverpool v Cardiff betting tips. Just a nod towards how well Liverpool are doing this season, the Reds are ten points better off than they were after nine games of their campaign last season. Drastic improvement.
Liverpool have a clean sheet in each of their last nine Premier League home games and overall are undefeated in 25 fixtures there. This season they have scored 75% of their league home goals in the first half of matches. With that in mind, and considering they are going up against a potential relegation candidate, a Liverpool/Liverpool half-time/ full-time option is at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 3:45 pm). They look a pretty solid home banker.
This will be the first meeting since the 2013/14 Premier League
Liverpool won their last two league games against Cardiff
The Reds are unbeaten in their last four games against Cardiff
Both teams have scored in each of their last four clashes
Cardiff actually lead the head to head 18-11 with 3 draws
The Reds have scored at least two goals in each of their last four against Cardiff
Cardiff finally broke their duck last weekend as they fought back from conceding the opening goal at home against Fulham to land a 4-2 win. Those four goals in that game were as many as they had managed in their previous eight league games for the season. A Liverpool 2-0 option in the correct score market is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 3:45 pm). They are still struggling at the wrong end of the table of course with a W1 D2 L6 record for the season. Their away form is D1 L3.
Cardiff have recorded just one away goal this season and that came in a big 4-1 loss at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in the middle of September. The Bluebirds have scored one and conceded seven goals in their four away games this season. The three defeats which they have already suffered on the road each came in a fixture against a side currently in the top six. (Chelsea, Spurs and Bournemouth).
Cardiff have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last six league games, shipping at least two goals in each of those games. Three of the seven goals that they have conceded away from home this season have been in the second half of matches. They have also been behind at the halftime break in all but one of their away games this season, against lending a pretty strong indication towards a Liverpool/Liverpool half time/full time bet being a great betting tip for the Liverpool v Cardiff match.
Liverpool should ease themselves to a comfortable win. They haven’t been clicking greatly in front of goal recently, but they have enough about them too certainly go out and push for a win to nil. Cardiff enjoyed last weekend. They probably won’t get much fun out of this trip to Anfield.
25th October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
There will be big survival points up for grabs down in south Wales when Cardiff and Fulham meet on the weekend. The Bluebirds are stuck at the foot of the table horribly out of form. But regardless they could pull level on points with Fulham with a win. The Cottagers have the worst defensive record in the top flight so far. Read our Cardiff v Fulham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)
The Bluebirds have not adapted well to life in the top flight and are on a five-match losing streak at the moment. They are D2 L6 for the season so far and they have shipped at least two goals in each of those losses. Cardiff have failed to get on the scoresheet this season in five of their eight games. On each of the three occasions that they did, they lost each of those games. This is a big opportunity for them against another struggler to at least try and get something going.
Both teams not to score in this one is at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:18 pm). Cardiff’s home form is D1 L3 and they are on a three-match losing streak on home soil, conceding ten goals in their last three in South Wales. If they let Fulham, who are fourth from bottom get away from them after this game, Cardiff, who are already favourites to get relegated are going to be in even bigger trouble.
The Cottagers are three points better off than Cardiff are and have tasted victory this season. That was back at the end of August though and they are winless in their last five (D2 L3). The problem with the Cottagers is their defence. They play an open and attractive game and like to knock the ball around nicely, but they are wide, wide open at the back. They have the worst defensive record in the top flight and have conceded at least two goals in all but one of their league outings this season.
But will the limited Cardiff attack have enough to hurt them? Under 2.5 goals is the appealing option at even money* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 6:18 pm). Both of these sides will see the importance of not suffering a loss in this one and it could be a tight scrap. Fulham’s away form is D1 L3 for the season and they have failed to score in their last two on the road, which were difficult ones at Manchester City and then Everton.
There were four points collected by Fulham last season in their Championship meetings with Cardiff including a big 4-2 win over the Bluebirds down in South Wales. Fulham are unbeaten in their last seven games against Cardiff in all competitions with a W3 D4 record on the board. Five of the last six meetings have surprisingly produced at least three goals in them. There have been thirteen goals in the last three clashes in Wales.
We are going to go with the away win here. You have two very contrasting styles but Fulham have the bigger potential of coming up with the goal, even if they are likely to get knocked around a bit. Away win.

Tottenham have put back to back league wins on the board to just about hold on to a top-four place heading in the next round of league action. They will be heavily backed no doubt as well as they play host to Cardiff. The Bluebirds are having some big issues dealing with life in the top flight as they are still in search of their first win. Read our Tottenham v Cardiff betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 2nd, 2018 at 8:23 p.m.)
Thanks to back to back wins over Brighton and Huddersfield (both away from home) Spurs have settled down a bit. They have improved their form to W5 L2 from their seven league games this season. The Lilywhites have netted at least two goals in all but one of their league games this season and they will be expected to be pretty comfortable on home soil against Cardiff on the weekend. A Tottenham 2-0 correct score looks a strong option at 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
Spurs did have European action in midweek so we can look for just a nice comfortable win for them in this one. Tottenham to win to nil is tremendous value at 21/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm). Harry Kane has come up with three goals in his last two games and is heading up the First and Anytime goalscorer markets. This will only be their third league home game of the season so there’s very little to go on for them at home. They have averaged exactly two goals in their two home games so far. Their 2-0 win out at Huddersfield last weekend returned just their second clean sheet of the season.
The Bluebirds are struggling pretty badly at the moment. Even when they are scoring they are still not able to get points on the board. They are stuck on just two points from 0-0 draws against Newcastle and Huddersfield early in the season and now the Welsh club are on a four-match losing streak. In that sequence of four games, they have conceded a total of thirteen goals as well. They lost 2-1 at home against Burnley last weekend and there doesn’t appear to be an immediate solution to their problems.
Away from home they are D1 L2 and suffered a big loss at Chelsea in their last away game. On their two trips to London this season in the top flight they have shipped a total of seven goals. Cardiff have produced just the one away goals this season. Looking at the goals which they have conceded ten of them have either been in the final fifteen minutes of the first half of the final fifteen minutes of the second half during games. So those are certainly the periods where they are most vulnerable. This could be another long afternoon for them and both teams not to score is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
Spurs won both games against Cardiff in the 2013/14 Premier League season 1-0 and they are undefeated in their last seven against them in all competitions. Spurs actually haven’t conceded a single goal in any of their last five games against Cardiff.
Tottenham should be strong enough to see off a Cardiff side who are leaking a lot of goals and not threatening too much going forward. We can only see a routine home win cropping up in our Spurs v Cardiff betting tips and a Tottenham to win to nil bet appeals.
