Aston Villa vs Cardiff predictions and betting tips for the Championship fixture on Tuesday evening with an anytime goalscorer tip and match prediction included.
Cardiff wasted the opportunity to take at least a point from their crucial top-of-the-table encounter with Wolves on Friday with both Gary Madine and Junior Hoilett spurning the opportunity from the spot. It was a feisty encounter and the Bluebirds lost valuable ground in the race for top spot but they remain in a prominent position for promotion. Fulham are now just two points behind them but the Cottagers have played a game more. Aston Villa are also in the hunt for automatic promotion but their recent form has seen them fall further behind and three defeats in five is hardly the sign of a team who are ready for the Premier League. They were clinical against Reading at Villa Park but did lose their previous home outing against QPR. See our Aston Villa vs Cardiff betting tips and predictions in the article below:
Villa have struggled recently and too many players under-performed against Norwich on Saturday. They have the talent and were ruthless against Wolves here but whether they possess the mentality remains to be seen. Cardiff have become incredibly hard to beat and they should be able to dust themselves down after Friday’s disappointment. The first of our Aston Villa vs Cardiff betting tips is Cardiff Draw No Bet which is available at 23/17 with 10 Bet.
Villa are conceding cheap goals and let Norwich put three past them on Saturday. Cardiff will look to take advantage of that. There is plenty at stake here though and neither team will want to lose valuable ground so it could be settled by a single goal. Under 2.5 Goals is priced at 7/10 with Bet Victor and is the second of our Aston Villa vs Cardiff predictions.
Cardiff have a number of players who can find the target but Nathaniel Mendez-Laings’ contribution this season has been vitally important. Nathaniel Mendez-Laing in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 4/1 with Betfred and is the last of our Aston Villa vs Cardiff betting tips.
Aston Villa start as the favourites for this game and their home form has been largely consistent. They start the game at 5/4 with Cardiff priced at 11/5. A point each would allow Fulham the opportunity to make ground on the Bluebirds and it is available at 40/17.
Goals are not expected in this tie with Under 2.5 Goals a short price at 9/13 whilst Over 2.5 Goals is available at 15/13
Jonathon Kodjia is back from injury and is one of the favourites in the first goalscorer market at 5/1. He is joined by Lewis Grabban who is 11/2 and Junior Hoilett who is available at 6/1 and will be keen to make up for his penalty miss.
All these odds are from 10 Bet
Aston Villa welcomed back Jonathon Kodjia last week and he could feature here. Jed Steer and Gabby Agbonlahor remain the only absentees.
Jazz Richards and Joe Ralls are likely to miss out for the visitors.
