Cardiff City Stadium is the location for the battle of the newly promoted teams, as Cardiff and Wolves take on each other. Wolves have been much better than the other two newly promoted teams and they have already managed twice the number of points as Cardiff (8) in the first 13 games of the campaign. However, Wolves have been unable to stay in the top half despite good performances. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Cardiff City’s customary disappointment at Goodison Park continued with a 1-0 defeat against Everton last weekend. This was the third loss in four games for Cardiff, who are 19th in the table.
Wolves’ disappointing performances continued with the team losing 2-0 against Huddersfield at home. This was the fourth loss in five games for Nuno’s men.
The recent game between these two teams at the Cardiff City Stadium took place in April when Wolves won 1-0 on their way to promotion. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Cardiff.

Wolves are at a price of 2.10. However, this is not attractive for a team that has struggled in recent matches. Cardiff may have also suffered several defeats in recent matches, but they are good at home – especially against teams around them. Wolves’ confidence levels witnessed a drop against Huddersfield, as the Midlands outfit had little answers to the high pressing from David Wager’s men. The game would have provided Warnock with several ideas to take on Wolves and they will be spurred on by home supporters. Our preview would go with a win for Cardiff.

Cardiff City vs Wolves draw odds: 3.20
Wolves win odds: 2.10
Correct Score odds
This game is about two teams that have been low on goals. Just like Wolves’ recent game against Huddersfield, this game is likely to be low on goals with Nuno’s men lacking the confidence levels to come up with a big score. Cardiff are likely to replicate Huddersfield’s tactics from last weekend and this may end up producing a tight game with several tactical fouls. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Cardiff.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though both Cardiff and Wolves have witnessed multiple high-scoring matches in recent months, it is likely to be a tight and cagey game when these two teams go up against each other. Recent head-to-head games have also witnessed a similar outcome. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Callum Paterson’s physical presence and keenness to defend from the front almost yielded a goal against Everton. The 24-year-old is a key attacking presence for Cardiff and he has three goals this season – two of them coming at the Cardiff City Stadium. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Patterson.
