What Trueform says for Cardiff vs Tottenham
Cardiff moved four points clear of the bottom three after Victor Camarasa’s stunning stoppage-time strike earned them a 1-0 win at Leicester.
Neil Etheridge, who was excellent throughout, had earlier saved a James Maddison penalty as the Bluebirds won for the first time on their travels this season.
Tottenham saw their Premier League title hopes suffer a setback as they went down 3-1 to Wolves at Wembley.
However, the north London side had posted three clean sheets in four games prior to that reverse, so 29/20 they bounce back and win to nil is our initial Cardiff vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Cardiff City’s Betting Odds
Philippines international Etheridge pulled off a string of fine saves to help earn the Bluebirds a precious victory in their battle against the drop.
He denied Ricardo Pereira, Jamie Vardy and Maddison before Camarasa won it with a fantastic effort from 25 yards which sailed into the top corner.
Boss Neil Warnock said: “It’s the best day since we’ve been back in the Premier League. It’s the best performance of the season, by an absolute mile. Defensively, I thought we were outstanding.
“There are a few teams down there who didn’t expect to be. That’s difficult mentally. We’ve always known we would be down there.
“I thought we deserved to win. We limited them. If we’d have been precise in the final third, we could have scored three or four.
“I’m really proud of how they put their bodies on the line. We’ve come a long way, we’ve improved so much since the start of the season.”
Cardiff have failed to score in their last six meetings with Tottenham, though, and 23/20 that continues is another option from the Cardiff vs Tottenham odds.
Last Cardiff line-up: Etheridge, Ecuele Manga, Morrison, Bamba, Cunningham, Gunnarsson, Hoilett, Camarasa, Arter, Murphy, Paterson.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
England striker Harry Kane celebrated his new year MBE in style with a brilliant first-half strike to put Tottenham ahead against Wolves.
But the visitors enjoyed a memorable first visit to the new national stadium as goals from Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa in the final 18 minutes gave them a deserved three points.
It was a game too far for Spurs, whose relentless run of fixtures finally caught up with them, as they fell nine points behind leaders Liverpool.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino said: “We conceded the first goal and the last 20 minutes was tough for the team to find energy, to be competitive, or to try to win the game.
“I think the game was under control in the first half, I think maybe it was easier than we expected to dominate the game. But in the second half we started to feel maybe the game was over.
“We played more with the heart rather than with the head and we started to spend a lot of energy – and, of course, you need the energy in the end, you miss that.
“I’m very disappointed, like the players, but there’s nothing to say. Some games can happen, this type of result, and now we need to move on and be sure we are ready for the next game.”
We will complete our Cardiff vs Tottenham betting tips by going for a 2-0 away win at 7/1.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Alli, Son, Kane.
