Form Cardiff vs Stoke
The form of both teams is one of the biggest things to consider before placing a bet on the upcoming game.
Cardiff continue to collect points.
Even coming from a defeat in their most recent match, overall form looks satisfying for Cardiff. In their previous 3 matches Cardiff destroyed Derby by 4 goals and went on to a dull 0-0 draw at Huddersfield. Their latest match served up a 2-1 defeat against Watford.
Stoke continue to look blunt.
Stoke will enter the match hoping to finally end their disappointing run of form in the league. In their previous 3 matches Stoke was defeated 2-1 by Swansea and went on to a 2-0 win against Wycombe. Their latest match served up a 3-0 defeat against Middlesbrough.
On the back of these results and with Stoke performing poorly, siding with Cardiff at odds 2.10 is the obvious way to go.
