Cardiff City entertain Sheffield United in EFL Championship action at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday. The Bluebirds have turned a corner since Steve Morison took over, winning three of the past four. Paul Heckingbottom started life back at Bramall Lane with a home win last weekend. Both teams head into this one in high spirits, but who will come out on top in the Welsh capital? The Blades are the slight favourites. We hunt down the best odds in our in-depth betting preview.

Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds seal a rare home victory?

Cardiff City made a promising start to the season under Mick McCarthy, but things went horribly wrong for the Welsh club at the end of his tenure. The Bluebirds lost eight in a row and McCarthy was sacked.

Steve Morison initially took over the role on an interim basis, guiding Cardiff to four points from three games. He was given the job full time during the last international break, and the Bluebirds returned to action with a 2-1 win at Preston North End.

Cardiff lost their last home game to in-form Queens Park Rangers but bounced back with a hard-fought 2-1 win at Luton Town last weekend. Can the league’s worst home team back that up with another three points on Saturday?

Sheffield United Preview – Can the Blades make it three wins in a row?

Slavisa Jokanovic was brought to Bramall Lane in the summer to take Sheffield United back into the Premier League at the first time of asking. However, Jokanovic left his role last month after securing just six Championship wins.

Paul Heckingbottom is back in the Bramall Lane dugout, and the 44-year-old started with a win last weekend. Goals from Rhian Brewster and Billy Sharp earned United a 2-0 home victory against Bristol City.

After wins over Reading and Bristol City in the last two, the Blades would love to make it three in a row in Cardiff on Saturday. Heckingbottom’s boys are the bookies’ favourites at 6/5.


Cardiff City vs Sheffield United Betting Advice

Since the last meeting, both clubs have spent time in the Premier League. Back in April 2018, Sheffield United and Cardiff played out a 1-1 draw at Bramall Lane. The Bluebirds won the meeting in Wales that season, with Sean Morrison and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing on target in a 2-0 home triumph.

Cardiff are unbeaten in six against the Blades. Sheffield United’s last victory in this fixture came at the old Ninian Park back in March 2009.


Key Facts – Cardiff City vs Sheffield United Betting Tip

  • Cardiff have won three of the last four
  • Sheffield United have won two in a row
  • The Bluebirds have picked up just one home win since August


Cardiff have the worst home record in the league, collecting a mere seven points from a possible 30 at the Cardiff City Stadium. However, they have shown a big improvement of late, beating Huddersfield, Preston and Luton in their last four.

Sheffield United head to the Welsh capital on the back of wins over Reading and Bristol City. The Blades will fancy their chances against the Championship’s worst home side, but we fancy Cardiff to battle to a draw.

There is good value in the draw and under 2.5 goals at 10/3. We also like the look of 9/2 for the draw at half time and full time.
