Cardiff City - Reading betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 15:00 on 02/10/2021 played @ Cardiff City Stadium refereed by Thomas Bramall

Though Cardiff City are more likely to win this, an away win would only be slightly surprising. It’s a relatively balanced matchup, which usually means we’ll see some exciting football.

Reading will have little to hope for in this match. 3.75 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.

The 0:4 result of last round’s match against West Bromwich Albion at Cardiff City Stadium was fairly unsurprising. Cardiff City went into the game as clear underdogs, fell behind in the first half, and proceeded to endure a crushing 0:4 defeat.

While Reading’s previous loss is bad news for them, it’s hard to say anyone was surprised. They were fighting against overwhelming odds as visitors, so the narrow 1:0 loss against Derby County was in line with most betting predictions.

The hosts will be looking to cut down on the number of goals they concede. They’ve recorded more than 5 total concessions over the last 3 matches, which is usually a cause for concern.

The away team’s previous three away games left a lot to be desired when it comes to how they perform defensively. Over 5 conceded goals in just 3 matches is never a good look, even if you’re playing as visitors.

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

An Over 2.5 Goals is a great bet if you like staying on the safe side. The betting value for this market is strong compared even to the 2.18, which makes this an easy betting prediction to make.

Betting tip (stake: 7/10): Over 2,5 2.18 at Unibet
Correct score prediction: 2:1
