Coventry City find themselves languishing in the bottom two of the Championship and after enduring a six-match winless streak, the gap between themselves and safety is widening.
As the season nears the halfway mark it’s been a bleak campaign for the Sky Blues’ supporters as they have only seen their side win once out of their last 11 clashes.
Andy Thorn has not had the best of times since taking over at the Ricoh Arena, having only registered five victories in his 26 games in charge.
For a home side to be 13/5 to win reflects not only how poor the Midlands club’s recent form has been, but also the fact that Cardiff are unbeaten in their last three on the road, winning two of those matches.
Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay will be hoping his leading league scorer Peter Whittingham continues his hot streak, with the former Villa man scoring in his last three Championship games.
Mackay has seen his side score eight in their last four while conceding only two and they could be a good punt to keep a clean sheet on Tuesday night. With odds of 33/20, those new customers who stake their free £25 bet from bwin on this outcome will win £66.25 should Coventry fire blanks here.
Interestingly, Cardiff have taken the lead in their last seven league matches and are at 18/25 to do so again on this occasion. Odds of 31/20 for the Welsh club to be leading at half time are also well worth consideration.
Looking at the history books makes tough reading for fans of the Sky Blues, as they have lost the last six meetings against the side from the Cardiff City Stadium.
Of the last ten match-ups between these two, Coventry have only picked up all three points once. The Bluebirds came away from the Ricoh Arena with a 2-1 win last season and are 15/2 to repeat that scoreline here.
Interestingly, Cardiff have taken the lead in their last seven league matches and are at 18/25 to do so again. Odds of 31/20 for the Welsh club to be leading at half time are also well worth consideration.
Thorn’s men have been leaky at the back of late, conceding nine goals in their last three league clashes, and giving the home side a 1-0 start in the handicap market could be a tempting bet. You can get odds of 27/10 on Cardiff winning after giving Coventry a goal head-start.
There have been two draws in this fixture during the last ten encounters and should you fancy a stalemate here you can get 23/10 on the game finishing deadlocked.
While a draw is more likely than a Coventry win, Cardiff are justifiably strong favourites to pick up another away win and condone Thorn’s boys to a fourth successive league defeat.
