Cardiff vs Reading by Jamesington
In contrast, Cardiff have played 4 home matches against teams lower than themselves in the league, the have won all 4 of those matches, 3 of the wins were by a scoreline of either 2-1 or 3-1.
Whilst neither side appears in great form, overall, at home Cardiff have been solid winning their last 4 matches (2-1, 2-1, 3-1, 3-1) and Reading have lost their last 3 away games (1-3, 0-3, 1-3) so if we were to pick a winner in the game it would likely be Cardiff - as tipped by Shibby. A Cardiff win is available around 2.2/2.3, even a Cardiff win with both teams to score is available at odds of 4.0 but for me the value bets are in the correct score market which can pay big dividends from a small stake.
Cardiff have won 6 league matches this season, all at home, and 5 of those 6 victories have been by either the scoreline 2-1 or 3-1 (they have won 3-1 3 times, 2-1 twice and 1-0 once) so I suggest backing CARDIFF TO WIN 2-1 at 9.5 with BetVictor and CARDIFF TO WIN 3-1 at 19.0 with the same firm. The return is 19 units if either scoreline wins which would be a tasty profit on a 3 point stake.
Relegated last year from the Premier League Cardiff have goalscorers in abundance with the likes of Whittingham, Jones, Macheda and Le Fondre so if they play like they can should have no difficulty finding the net. There will be late fitness tests for Kenwyne Jones and Anthony Pilkingon for various reasons relating to International Duty but Jones is likely to at least make the bench given that his problem is simply that he only returned from the Caribbean yesterday. Reading will be missing midfielder Hope Akpan with a serious injury also picked up on international duty so their already less than stellar away form will have to be improved without a midfielder that has taken part in most matches this season, far from good news.
Cardiff could win this match and if they do let's hope it's 2-1 or 3-1.
CARDIFF TO WIN 2-1 at 9.5 with BetVictor - 2pts
CARDIFF TO WIN 3-1 at 19.0 with BetVictor - 1pt
Either win would return 19pts so the odds are 6.33
