Betting Tips for the game

Cardiff City were once again lead into an assault by Manchester City, who picked up a 5-0 win at the Cardiff City stadium. This victory comes just a few days after the 4-1 loss against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Burnley picked up a very crucial 4-0 win over Bournemouth to register the first win of the campaign. Burnley have lost four out of the six league matches this season.

The recent game between Burnley and Cardiff took place at the Turf Moor and this game concluded as a goalless draw. Cardiff’s last home game against Burnley also produced a draw but it was a goal fest with a 2-2 score. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Match odds

Burnley are at the price of 3.00 to win the game while Cardiff are slightly shorter at a price of 2.70. Yet, it is difficult to back both clubs for different reasons. After having drawn four out of the last five meetings – even though a lot has changed since then – between each other, Burnley and Cardiff may be heading for a stalemate. Both clubs would actually appreciate a point from the encounter considering that it is one of the main rivals. Our preview would back a draw.

Cardiff City win odds: 2.70

Burnley win odds: 3.00

Correct Score odds

The two teams have largely played out score draws although there have been two goalless draws in recent history. After finding the template for scoring goals, Burnley would be pleased to go ahead and aim for goals in the game. Cardiff have also been quite good going forward with goals in each of the last four games – apart from the match against Manchester City. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Both clubs do not have an outstanding goalscoring department, and it is unlikely that they may come up with over 1.5 goals each. Since each club do appear good enough only for a handful of goals, our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds

Cardiff have not been able to boast of one single and attacking player. Burnley, meanwhile, will be looking to exploit the pace of players like Aaron Lennon on the counter-attack. A better option would be to back Chris Wood, who stands to be at the receiving end of the balls from Lennon.
