Reading - Cardiff City betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 18:00 on 16/04/2021 played @ Madejski Stadium refereed by John Brooks

Reading should not have bigger problems running away with three points in this match if they stick to their game plan. However, Cardiff City can be a tough nut to crack and the home side need to be on top of their game.

At 3.60 betting odds, an away win would be a huge surprise and we’re positive Cardiff are well aware of it themselves.

Although The Royals’s previous Championship outing at Watford was a crushing away loss, it’s hard to judge their form based on that performance alone. After all, they were out-classed by Watford , who secured an early lead and a comfortable 2:0 victory in the end.

Cardiff’s home performance against Blackburn Rovers in the previous round wasn’t spectacular, ending in a 2:2 stalemate. Neither side managed to pull ahead, but Cardiff City can be happier with this outcome considering the balance of power wasn’t in their favour.

With over 5 goals over their past 3 home games, The Royals is not a team you want to meet at home. They’ll be looking to extend this trend as much as possible, so Cardiff City will need to be careful.

The Bluebirds’s recent track record shows a very concerning amount of concessions – 8 of them in their previous 3 matches, to be exact. While it’s obvious their defence has a lot of problems, Over markets might be a good option for this match.

Looking over the head-to-head statistics for this Championship season, the hosts already recorded a victory over Cardiff City. This puts them ahead of their opponents, which is reflected in the betting odds.

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

At the odds of 2.25, the match will likely end in a Home Win. The probability of success is the most important factor here, and all signs are pointing towards a triumph for The Royals.
