Cardiff City - Derby County betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 20:45 on 02/03/2021 played @ Cardiff City Stadium

The online bookies marked Cardiff City as the favourites, which makes a lot of sense. Still, we wouldn’t put Derby County winning beyond them – not to mention that draws are a strong possibility in relatively balanced games.

It’s highly unlikely that Derby will manage to get some points this round. Cardiff are at a considerable advantage, so even a draw would be a success for the visitors.

In a surprising turn of events, Cardiff took the lead in the early stages of their previous Championship match at Middlesbrough . The lead withered away into a 1:1 draw in the second half - which still counts as a moderate success considering the overwhelming odds they were up against.

Derby were off to a bad start in their previous Championship outing. Although they were the home team, they were behind on half-time against a relatively stronger opponent - Nottingham Forest. Derby County managed to scrape together a 1:1 draw before the end, which isn’t bad all things considered.

The home team’s attackers have been highly effective recently. Our records show more than 5 goals scored over the course of their 3 latest matches. This bodes well for their upcoming performance.

The Rams can’t really boast a great record when it comes to playing as visitors. They conceded upwards of 5 goals in their most recent 3 away games. Considering they’re heading into another away game, that’s cause for concern.

If there’s one thing to note about the history of this matchup, it’s a fact their matches tend to end in a draw. Several matches this season ended inconclusively, so it neems neither team is able to reliably tip the scales one way or another.

Fortunately, both teams will be able to give their all this Tuesday. Neither squad has been affected by injuries or suspensions, allowing the coaches to work with all the tools at their disposal.

Based on both teams’ previous performances, an Over 2.5 Goals bet is very likely to win. The returns are somewhat limited at the odds of 2.38, but it’s still an incredibly safe bet.
