Blackpool v Cardiff City Betting Preview

Blackpool head into this game having had a frustrating season which has seen them pick up just eight victories from twenty-seven matches played and really need to secure maximum points form this one if they are to have any hope of making the play offs come May.

Cardiff City are having no such problems and currently lead the way at the top of the nPower Championship league table by eight points from closest challengers Hull City but this fixture has proven to be a very tricky one over the years with Cardiff having only managed two victories against their hosts at Bloomfield Road Stadium in eighteen attempts.

Blackpool v Cardiff City Betting Predictions

Difficult to have much confidence in the hosts winning this game with the way their season has gone so far and having picked up just eight wins all season and up against the league leaders who have won eighteen it really would be a bit of an upset if Blackpool were to win this game.

Cardiff City are eight points clear at the top of the league table and they have failed to win either of their previous two games so it does look like some complacency has crept into the squad and that is an obvious worry, especially with this fixture having been difficult to win in the past.

However, with the goal stats suggesting at least a couple of goals to be scored during this game the goals market does look like being the sensible place to concentrate on when looking for a betting opportunity for this game and the both teams to score, total goals and over 2.5 betting markets all make plenty of appeal here.
