Cardiff City Preview – Bluebirds’ unbeaten run to continue?

Before Mick McCarthy arrived in Wales, Cardiff City have lost six out of six in all competitions and were languishing in 15th place in the Championship table. However, after a remarkable turnaround, City have fired themselves into promotion contention.

Overall, Big Mick has guided Cardiff to seven wins and four draws from 11 league matches. Before a 1-1 draw with Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough at the end of last month, the Bluebirds had won six in a row. However, two of their last three have ended in stalemates.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1020 GMT, Friday 12 March)

Cardiff have been superb at home under McCarthy, collecting ten points from a possible 12. They have won the last three at the Cardiff City Stadium, thumping Preston North End and Derby County 4-0, and easing to a 3-1 victory over Coventry City.

Cardiff would send out another huge signal of intent if they can get the better of Watford on home soil this Saturday.

Watford Preview – Can the Hornets make it seven wins from eight?

Xisco Munoz has made an excellent start to life at Watford, guiding the Hornets to ten wins from 15 Championship matches. The Hertfordshire club head to the Welsh capital having won six of their previous seven in the league.

After recent results, Watford have bulldozed their way into the automatic promotion places, ahead of Swansea City on goal difference. Overall, the Hornets have won 19, drawn nine and lost seven. Only leaders Norwich have won more and lost fewer.

Despite their lofty league position, Watford have been average at best on their travels. They have won five, lost five and drawn seven away from Vicarage Road. Still, the Hornets are the bookies’ favourites to win this one.


Cardiff City vs Watford Betting Advice

These two played out a tight and tense affair in front of 1000 spectators when they met at Vicarage Road back in December. Against the odds, Cardiff left Hertfordshire with a 1-0 win thanks to a first-half Kieffer Moore effort. That was the Bluebirds’ first victory over the Hornets since November 2014.


Key Facts – Cardiff City vs Watford Betting Tip

  • Watford have won three of the previous four against Cardiff
  • The Bluebirds are unbeaten under McCarthy, winning seven and drawing four of 11

With both teams in such fine fettle at the moment, Saturday’s showdown in South Wales could swing either way. Cardiff have been formidable over the past couple of months, while Watford have won six of their past seven. With that in mind, take a punt on the draw and both teams to score at 7/2.

The prolific Kieffer Moore netted the only goal of the game in the reverse fixture. Moore has had a superb first season in Cardiff, scoring 16 Championship goals so far. The Wales international is available at 9/2 to score first on Saturday.
