Cardiff City v Luton Town Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 10th August 15.00pm

Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City welcome Graeme Jones’ Luton Town to the Cardiff City Stadium in the EFL Championship on Saturday. The Bluebirds will be looking for their first win of the season after losing at Wigan Athletic on the opening weekend. Meanwhile, can the Hatters build on last week’s hard-fought 3-3 home draw with Middlesbrough? As expected, Cardiff go into this home match as the strong favourites with the bookies to take all three points, but can Town frustrate their hosts?

Cardiff City News and Form – Bluebirds to get off the mark this weekend?

Cardiff City were relegated from the Premier League last season, but the Bluebirds gave a good account of themselves in the top flight. Warnock’s troops missed out on survival by two points in the end, winning a respectable ten of their 38 games along the way.

Cardiff are one of the favourites for promotion, but the Welsh side kicked off their season with a disappointing defeat at Wigan. Despite Joe Ralls giving them an early lead at the DW Stadium, Cardiff ended up on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline, which was no doubt a setback for the club. Nevertheless, there were certainly positive to takes for Warnock.

The Bluebirds claimed some notable wins in the Welsh capital in the Premier League last season, seeing off the likes of Fulham, Brighton & Hove Albion, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton, Bournemouth and West Ham United. Meanwhile, they picked up four away wins, including a 2-0 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford on the final day.

Warnock and his men will have been disappointed with last weekend’s result at Wigan, but the Bluebirds should hit back with three points at the Cardiff City Stadium this Saturday.

Luton Town News and Form – Tough test in the Welsh capital for the Hatters?

Luton Town started life back in the Championship after a lengthy absence with a gritty 3-3 draw with Middlesbrough at Kenilworth Road last week. Town, who fell behind and then led, scored in the 85th minute to rescue a point against Jonathan Woodgate’s Boro.

On their way to the EFL League One title last term, Luton were very impressive on the road, winning 11 times. At home, meanwhile, the Hatters went the whole season unbeaten, winning a staggering 16 matches and drawing seven times.

Despite finishing as League One champions, Luton lost two of their last three away games last season, falling to defeats at Charlton Athletic and Burton Albion. The Championship is a big step up for Town, and they could struggle on their travels this term.

Luton were excellent at Middlesbrough in their opening Championship encounter, but can the Hatters put in the same level of performance away at Cardiff this Saturday?

Cardiff City v Luton Town Predictions

Cardiff City win: The Bluebirds will want to hit back after last weekend’s loss at Wigan. Luton have been on an incredible rise over the past few years, and Jones’ troops will no doubt give Cardiff a good game in Wales. However, I fancy City to nick it, so back the home win at 19/20. Meanwhile, put some money on Warnock’s boys to open the scoring in this one at the decent odds of 4/7.
