Huddersfield and Cardiff take on each other at the Cardiff City Stadium in a six-pointer this weekend. Even though both teams started out as favourites for relegation, there is a whopping eight-point difference between the two clubs coming into this match. Cardiff have been the better of the two teams and they sit just outside the relegation zone. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Cardiff City were knocked out of the FA Cup after a disappointing 1-0 loss against Gillingham, who are in the League One of English football, last weekend. This was the second consecutive defeat for the Bluebirds.
Huddersfield lost for a ninth consecutive match when Bristol City were able to manage a narrow 1-0 win in the third round of the FA Cup meeting at Oakwell Stadium. The last victory for Huddersfield was in November.
The reverse fixture between Huddersfield and Cardiff produced a goalless draw at the John Smith’s Stadium back in August with the home team being reduced to 10 men. Huddersfield’s last trip to the Cardiff City Stadium produced a 3-2 win for the home team. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Cardiff.

Huddersfield are at a significantly shorter price of 3.60 to win this match and it does not make sense to back the visitors at this price. David Wagner’s men have been very disappointing this season. They have worked together as a team only on a handful of the games and this has resulted in far less impact in the final third. Cardiff are more likely to make use of home advantage and they have picked up more than 70% of their points at home. Our preview would pick a win for Cardiff.

Cardiff City vs Huddersfield Town draw odds: 3.20
Huddersfield Town win odds: 3.60
Correct Score odds
This match features two teams that have managed to score less than a goal per game this season. Cardiff have fared slightly better with the return of 19 goals from the 21 matches, while Huddersfield have been stuck with only 13 goals in the league this season. Even if Huddersfield do play well, it is difficult to see the visitors scoring. Our correct score prediction would back a 2-0 win for Cardiff.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Cardiff and Huddersfield are lacking in terms of creativity going forward. Both teams have been able to score only a handful of goals this season. Huddersfield are missing key players like Aaron Mooy to rob them of vital creative influence. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals under 2.5 at 1.53[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Callum Paterson has been able to come up with four league goals this season to become the top scorer at Cardiff. The 24-year-old has scored only once in his last nine appearances, but three of his four goals have been at the Cardiff City Stadium. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Callum Paterson.
