Friday - 18 October 2019

19:45 - Cardiff v Sheffield Weds

Cardiff City to Win 2-1 @ 8/1

On Friday night in the EFL Championship, Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City welcome Garry Monk’s Sheffield Wednesday to the Cardiff City Stadium in South Wales. The Bluebirds have taken 13 points from a possible 15 on home soil so far, while Wednesday have won three of their five Championship games under new boss Monk. We should be in for an entertaining clash in the Welsh capital on Friday evening.

Cardiff have yet to win away in league action since beating Manchester United 2-0 at Old Trafford on the final day of last term’s Premier League season, but their form at home has been very solid. The Bluebirds have won four and drawn one of five Championship matches at the Cardiff City Stadium, beating Luton Town, Huddersfield Town, Middlesbrough and Queens Park Rangers. The Owls have made a decent start to life under Monk, but they were beaten at Hull City in their last away game. Three of Cardiff’s four victories have been by a one-goal margin, and there’s good value in 8/1 for the 2-1 home win on Friday.

Football Bets

Our tips and predictions mainly focus on a few core bets. Chances are you're already familiar with these, but here's a quick run down just in case:

  • Win/Draw/Win - The simplest bet you can make... who will win the match?
  • HT/FT - The odds for the WDW markets are often quite low, especially when one team is heavily favoured. The halft-time/full-time market offers an opportunity to boost the odds by selecitng the result for both half time and the final whistle.
  • Handicap Betting - Another way to increase the odds on the match result is to add a handicap. For example, Arsenal -2 means that they effectively start the match at -2, meaning they need two goals more than the other team to draw and three more to win. 
  • Both Teams to Score - Originating in the Goals Galore market from Betfred, both teams to score has become incredibly popular. They frequently show up in accumulators and with odds usually below evens it's easy to see why. Other variations you may see in our tips are both teams not to score (BTTS No - where one or both teams won't score) and BTTS + Win, where the winner of the match is picked alongside the BTTS bet.
  • Over/Under - Another bet that's along the same lines as BTTS are over/under bets. Except here you're predicting whether the totaly number of goals will be above or below a target figure. The most comon example is 2.5 goals, although you can place these bets on a wide range of numbers. You can even bet on over 0.5 goals if you think it's going to be anything other than a 0-0 draw.
  • Correct Score - To really boost the odds, head to the correct score market. It's a hard bet to predict but it sometimes has value.
  • Goalscorer - You wont see these bets too frequently in our tips, but they do crop up from time to time if the value offered is good. Here we're picking who will score, either first, last or at any point in the match. For matches with a heavy favourite and a strong striker you may even see something along the lines of "Ronaldo to score two or more goals".
