Cardiff and Crystal Palace go into their meeting in Wales this weekend slap bang in the middle of the Championship play-off spots with just a single point separating them.
The Bluebirds are undefeated at home since August but Palace, who are on a seven-match unbeaten streak of their own and have won all their away games in the league since losing to Doncaster in September, will fancy their chances to come away with all three points at 14/5.
Out of the 18 league goals scored this season by Palace, 12 of them have come in the second half, making them perennial closers of games, most notably in their dramatic wins at Brighton and Coventry.
Football betting fans expecting another half-time turnaround can get an enticing 40/1 on Cardiff/Palace in the half-time/full-time market or go for the safer option of the visitors to triumph after drawing the first half at 15/2.
In the 15 fixtures played by Cardiff this season there has been an average of 3.13 goals, so a bet on three goals to be scored in this game at 16/5 won’t be far off the mark.
One note of caution on this front is that Dougie Freedman’s men equalled a club record of six consecutive games without conceding in midweek.
However, the Bluebirds, who are rated as 9/10 favourites, have the third strongest attack in the league at home, so ruling them out would be foolish.
The Multiple Correct Scores bet of either 2-1, 3-1 or 4/1 at 15/4 would be favourable if you fancy them to be the first team since West Ham to breach Julián Speroni’s goal and go on to win.
