17/2 Bristol City vs Cardiff Bet Builder Tips – Predictions for the mouth-watering Severnside Derby
When there’s a televised Championship fixture on a Sunday in and amongst a full Premier League fixture list, you know it’s going to be a big game. We have a tasty lunchtime treat this time around as Bristol City take on Cardiff City at Ashton Gate.
Both of these sides have had decent starts to the season, with the home side Bristol City sitting in 15th place in the table with 4 points. They picked up their first win midweek at home to Luton Town, a win which would have been welcome amongst The Robins faithful.
Cardiff have had an even better start, only losing one of their four fixtures, sitting in 6th place currently with 7 points. They picked up a hard-earned point against West Bromwich Albion in midweek in a 0-0 draw.
However, in derbies such as these, form goes out of the window somewhat but I’ve picked us a 17/2 Bet Builder in what promises to be an eventful fixture.
Bristol City vs Cardiff City Bet Builder Tips

Odds – 17/2 with Bet365
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Bristol City got the better of the travelling Bluebirds in both league fixtures last term, winning 3-2 at home and 2-1 at the Cardiff City Stadium. Whilst Cardiff have proven already this year that they have a solid rear-guard, keeping three clean sheets in their opening four league matches, I do expect both teams to score in this one.
Cardiff have scored at Ashton Gate on their previous eight visits across the Severn Bridge, so it’s definitely been a place where their travelling support have celebrated in the past.
Bristol City have scored in their opening four fixtures, and I expect the same outcome here even though Cardiff’s defensive record is one of the best in the division. The home fans will roar them on from the first whistle, and I expect that to give them enough momentum to break down Cardiff at least once in this tie.
Andreas Weimann to score anytime
Bristol City’s Austrian forward, Andreas Weimann, enjoyed his best attacking return last season after scoring 22 goals in 46 matches.
The 31-year-old has started the season in the same sort of mood, already scoring three league goals. In fact, the only game he didn’t score was in the 2-0 win against Luton Town where he operated a deeper role as strike partner Nakhi Wells played further forward.
Additionally, he scored in both fixtures against Cardiff last season, so the away sides newly formed defence will be frightened of facing the in-form forward.
I’m backing both teams to score, and he’s the man to make things happen for The Robins so I do fancy him to score on Sunday.
He’s 11/2 to open the scoring with Bet365, I wouldn’t put you off a go on that either.
Both teams to receive 2+ cards
This game will mean a lot to the players and fans of both sides, so I’m expecting it to be a feisty affair. This selection landed in the first game between the two last year, and only a Bristol City yellow prevented it happening again in the reverse.
The home side have had eight yellow cards already this season, whereas the away side have picked up 13 yellows in their opening four. This shows that both sides have players who will relish the passionate atmosphere on Sunday, so I expect the man in the middle Thomas Bramall to be busy for the 90 minutes.
