Stoke City and Cardiff City lock horns at the bet365 Stadium in EFL Championship action on Saturday. Both could do with the points, as the Potters have lost four league and cup matches on the spin, while the Bluebirds have suffered eight consecutive Championship defeats. After the sacking of Mick McCarthy last weekend, Steve Morison is set to take charge of the Welsh side. Read on for the latest odds and best predictions.

Stoke City Preview – Will the Potters secure first win in a month?

Stoke City made an excellent start to their season, winning nine of their opening 14 league and cup matches. However, the 2-1 home reverse to Premier League Brentford in the Carabao Cup in midweek was their fourth loss on the bounce.

In the Championship, Stoke have lost successive games against Sheffield United, Bournemouth and Millwall. As a consequence, Michael O’Neill’s boys have dropped out of the play-off spots and down to ninth. However, with things so tight in and around the top six at present, they are level on points with fifth-place Luton Town.

Our betting prediction:
Stoke to win 2-0

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1249 GMT, Friday 29 October)

Stoke will be desperate to get back to winning ways here. They will not have a better chance, with Cardiff severely low on confidence after eight straight defeats. The hosts are the favourites at evens.

Cardiff City Preview – Can the Bluebirds avoid a ninth successive league loss?

Cardiff City, who finished eighth last term, made a good start to their season. After their first six, the Bluebirds were sitting pretty in seventh after three wins, two draws and one defeat. However, it has gone rapidly downhill from then on.

Since coming from behind to win 2-1 at Nottingham Forest on 12th September, City have taken precisely zero points from a possible 24. In the process, the have conceded 19 and scored just one.

Cardiff head to the bet365 Stadium having lost ten of their last 11 in all competitions. They have gone from play-off hopefuls to relegation fodder in just a couple of months. Can Steve Morison stop the rot at the weekend?


Stoke City vs Cardiff City Betting Advice

Cardiff won this fixture last season, coming from behind to beat the Potters 2-1 thanks to goals from Sean Morrison and Robert Glatzel. The game in Wales ended in a far less eventful 0-0 draw.

Stoke have struggled to find wins against the Bluebirds in recent years. A 2-0 home victory in February 2020 is their only success over the team from Wales in six.


Key Facts – Stoke City vs Cardiff City Betting Tip

  • Stoke have lost four league and cup matches in a row
  • Cardiff have suffered eight straight Championship defeats
  • The Bluebirds have scored just one goal in their last eight


Stoke will be hoping to get back on track after some poor results of late. Cardiff will be desperate to stop the rot, but we can see the Potters extending the Bluebirds’ losing streak on Saturday. We like the look of 11/5 for the hosts to be winning at half time and full time.

As we touched on, when Stoke last beat Cardiff, a Callum Paterson own goal and a Joe Allen effort was enough for a 2-0 victory at the bet365. A repeat scoreline here is available at 8/1.
