Cardiff City - Birmingham City predictions

Kickoff starts at 20:45 on 13/12/2023 played @ Cardiff City Stadium refereed by Stephen Martin

Cardiff City are easily the favourites in the match this Wednesday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 2.00 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but Birmingham City may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

Birmingham City will have little to hope for in this match. 4.00 betting odds on them winning paint a pretty clear picture and from this standpoint there is little doubt in regard to the outcome of this clash.

Cardiff are coming on the back of a narrow 1:0 home win against Millwall in the previous round of the Championship. While their victory was by no means spectacular and secured thanks to a 1-goal advantage in the second half, it was still reassuring to the fans ar Cardiff City Stadium.

Birmingham are coming on the back of a crushing defeat at the hands of Coventry City. They never really had much of a shot, to be fair: the odds were decidedly against them and they were playing as visitors. The outcome is a 2:0 goal difference and an HT/FT loss.

Cardiff City’s home games tend to not feature a lot of goals. Two of their most recent matches at Cardiff City Stadium ended with less than 2 goals at the end whistle.

Results and standings notwithstanding, The Blues have run into some defensive issues in this stretch of the Championship. In the past 3 matches, they allowed more than 5 goals to their opponents, which may be cause for concern for their supporters.

This is the second time we’re seeing these two sides clash this season. The first game went Cardiff City’s way, albeit with a difference of only one goal. Still, such a record makes it easy to see why they’re the favourites this time around.

This Wednesday, both teams will have a full roster available to them, thanks to the absence of injuries or suspensions.

Despite the risks involved, the strongest prediction in terms of value is an HT/FT bet that the hosts will take lead in the second half. It’s as risky as you might expect, though the 1 odds offer a decent return.
