The Cardiff City Stadium is the location for the meeting between Cardiff and Leicester City this weekend. Cardiff were able to remain outside the drop zone even after a disappointing defeat last weekend. However, it is still a better position than a few weeks ago when Cardiff were at the bottom. Leicester City are just outside the top half of the table after managing 13 points so far this season. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Cardiff City were able to end up with a 4-1 loss against Liverpool at Anfield. Yet, the club should glimpses of the form that helped them to a 4-2 victory over Fulham in the previous game.

Leicester are given a price of 2.10 to win the match. Yet, we would not pick this choice. The club are still likely to be in a sad state after the tragic death of the chairman – just outside the King Power Stadium. Cardiff City have played well in the last few matches but they would need defensive mistakes from the opposition in order to get victories. Yet, a reasonable form shown by Cardiff may help them get a draw in this home game, as per our preview.

Cardiff City win odds: 3.60
Leicester City win odds: 2.10
Correct Score odds
Neil Warnock has had to deal with the poor offensive performance from his Cardiff throughout the campaign. The 4-2 win over Fulham is the only occasion when Cardiff have looked excellent, but it is largely down to the defensive lapses of the opposition. Leicester are better than Fulham and are unlikely to make too many defensive mistakes. This game may end up as a narrow 1-1 draw, as per our correct score prediction.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Games involving Cardiff have produced plenty of goals at the opposite end while Warnock has seen his team score less than a goal per game so far this season. Leicester huffed and puffed in the recent match against West Ham. They are unlikely to be in a good frame of mind after the recent tragedy. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Callum Paterson has played well in recent matches. He has scored just two league goals this season but his impact has been far bigger. He comes up against Leicester City for the first time in his career and our first goalscorer prediction would back the 24-year-old, who has been in fine form.
