Fulham hope to suck Cardiff City along with them into the Championship when they take on the Welsh team at Craven Cottage this weekend. The Cottagers have been able to move away from the bottom with a string of good results. Fulham are playing for pride whereas Cardiff have been putting a lot of effort in the hope of avoiding relegation. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Fulham became the latest team to profit from Bournemouth’s inconsistent campaign after a surprise 1-0 victory at the Vitality Stadium. This was the first away win for Fulham and the team has also been able to register back-to-back clean sheets for the first time this season.
Cardiff City put in a valiant performance only to be beaten by two simple mistakes last weekend. Liverpool were able to pick up a 2-0 win over the Welsh team, who have given themselves a fighting chance of avoiding relegation with the win over Brighton a few days before.
Cardiff came up with a strong 4-2 victory over Fulham in the reverse fixture at the Cardiff City Stadium. The last game between these two clubs at Craven Cottage was in the Championship when the game finished as a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions would opt for a draw.

Fulham have been able to come up with two big performances that have yielded them back-to-back victories. The club appeared hopeless with regards to keeping a clean sheet for the majority of the campaign, but they have not conceded a goal in back-to-back games. Cardiff, though, will put up a strong fight realising that the team has a better opportunity than Brighton to pick up at least six points in the last three matches. Cardiff’s last away match produced a victory, but Fulham are in a good moment. Our preview would pick a stalemate.

Fulham win odds: 2.40
Cardiff City win odds: 3.00
Correct Score odds
Scott Parker has now seen Fulham register back-to-back clean sheets, but Cardiff’s desire for a victory can push them towards getting at least some goals. Fulham have been a delight going forward of late with the likes of Ryan Babel and Aleksandar Mitrovic enjoying good form. Our correct score prediction would pick a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been very few away goals from Cardiff, who have failed to score in three out of the last five games on the road. Meanwhile, Fulham have been able to come up with a much improved offensive display over the last few weeks with players like Babel and Mitrovic playing to their full potential. Our total goals prediction would go with a game with under 2.5 goals, as both teams do not look offensively great.

First Goalscorer odds
Aleksandar Mitrovic came up with a penalty against Bournemouth that helped him move up to 11 league goals for the campaign. It also happens to be his first goal since January when he managed a brace against Brighton at Craven Cottage. Mitrovic has come up with just three away goals in the campaign, as eight of his 11 league goals have been at home. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Aleksandar Mitrovic.
