Reading - Cardiff City betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 15:00 on 09/04/2022 played @ Madejski Stadium refereed by Michael Salisbury

Reading are not exactly firm favourites to register three points in this game but we still believe they will manage to defeat Cardiff City. The odds of 2.50 might sound a bit risky but we still trust hosts can come out on top in the end.

With the betting odds being what they are, this match could still go either way. Still, the fact that Cardiff are generally the weaker team makes this match an uphill battle for them.

The start of Reading’s previous home match against Stoke City was somewhat disheartening – they were tied on half time against what was widely considered a tougher opposition. A deciding goal in the second half ensured the hosts came out on top, however, in a 2:1 victory.

Cardiff’s experienced quite a beating in their previous Championship appearance. Fans came to their home stadium expecting them to at least put up a decent fight against Swansea City, but they couldn’t recover from a poor first half. The final score was a crushing 0:4.

The Royals have a notably poor defensive record when it comes to playing as visitors. We’re mostly referring to the 5 conceded goals over their latest 3 away games. They are playing as hosts this time around, but you should be aware before you put down any money.

Reading already won against Cardiff City this season, although it was a rather narrow victory. They’ll have the home-field advantage this time, though, which puts them in the position of favourites.

This will no doubt be an exciting match because both squads will be able to come out in full force. No players have been sidelined due to injury or suspension, and this goes for both sides.

Going for a Home Win is already a fairly safe bet but we’d like to shore it up even further. The highest-value way of achieving this is through a Draw No Bet wager, which shortens the odds to 1.62 but is well worth the price.

Betting tip (stake: 7/10): Home Draw No Bet 1.62 at bet365
Correct score prediction: 1:0
