West Ham have been quite poor in terms of away form and while they have been inconsistent in terms of overall form this season. The Hammers have only managed four away victories this season and the latest loss against Manchester City means that the team has lost 50% of their away matches. They are up against a Cardiff team that has predominantly relied on home form in order to get them to safety. Cardiff will be incredibly motivated get a positive result since it is one of the two winnable home games left for the team in the remainder of the campaign. Our preview would pick a win for Cardiff.

Cardiff City vs West Ham draw odds: 3.30
West Ham win odds: 2.05
Correct Score odds
West Ham have been unable to score in four out of the last five away matches and they have also not scored from open play in any of these five games. Cardiff are not renowned for clean sheets or scoring goals, but the Welsh team can capitalise on such a poor form. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-0 win for Cardiff.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This is a game between two teams that have not scored a lot of goals – especially true in the case of West Ham’s away matches – so far this season. Cardiff may be very anxious about getting three points and this can induce a lot of nervousness into the stands. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Kenneth Zohore has come up with just one goal so far this season but the 25-year-old has been getting more game time of late. The striker from Denmark had a key role to play in Cardiff’s promotion campaign with nine goals and five assists. He remains as one of the important players for the Welsh team. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Zohore.
