A win for Cardiff City could see Malky Mackay’s side seal their place in the play-offs and the Bluebirds will be confident of success against a Leeds United team already planning for another year in the Championship
With two games to go and four points between them and seventh-placed Middlesbrough, Cardiff know they can seal their play-off spot – and the continuation of their pursuit of the so far elusive Holy Grail of Premier League football – with three points.
And the Bluebirds will be confident of victory over their Yorkshire visitors, who are already looking towards next season under perennial complainer Neil Warnock.
Malky Mackay’s team are available at odds of 13/20 to claim the win and with six victories and three draws from their last nine games against Leeds, the visitors could be set for another ear-bashing from their new boss come the end of the match.
Those looking for a half time score tip here could consider a punt on Cardiff leading 1-0 at the break.
Cardiff have been 1-0 up at the break in three of their last four home matches.
The Welsh club have been 1-0 up in five of their last six games against Leeds and with odds of 13/5 available, returns of £90 are available for anyone using Bwin’s free £25 bet for registering should the tip comes off.
Cardiff have also been 1-0 up at the break in three of their last four home matches.
With five draws in their last eight games, odds of 13/5 could also prove tempting for another game without a winner.
However, with the season nearing the business end of things, Cardiff have evidently sat up and taken due notice, with three wins from their last four putting them back in the hunt for a reunion against their neighbours Swansea City.
Nevertheless, goals remain something of a premium for Cardiff fans with fewer than 2.5 combined scored in each of their last three wins.
Backing Malky Mackay’s men to win with under 2.5 combined goals scored at 16/5 therefore looks like a better tip.
Meanwhile, the prospects for Neil Warnock’s men look bleak with Leeds available at 4/1 to win.
Two wins and five defeats in eight games tells its own story: the honeymoon is definitely over for the former QPR man, who could well be seeking an annulment if things don’t improve.
Any hopes of the play-offs ended weeks ago for the Yorkshire club, leaving Leeds to float through much of the remainder of the campaign open to abuse from fans home and away for a series of inept displays.
The club’s strikers look to already be planning their summer breaks to Ayia Napa, having failed to score in four of their last five Championship games.
Backing the visitors to draw a blank again here is available at 27/20.
Finally, three of Leeds’ last four losses have come by a scoreline of 2-0 and with tasty odds of 7-1 on Cardiff claiming a two goal win here, the Welsh club may not be the only ones celebrating come Saturday.
