Cardiff City vs West Ham prediction, betting tips and preview for this weekend’s Premier League fixture on Saturday 9th March. Cardiff are still in with a chance of survival and will have earmarked their home matches for points. See our prediction and betting tips below.
It has been a poor few weeks for Cardiff after they gave themselves hope of survival with two wins on the bounce against Bournemouth and Southampton but heavy defeats against Watford and Everton were followed by their most recent 2-0 loss to Wolves. They don’t really score enough goals and have only managed 25 all season, only Huddersfield have scored less. They have conceded a lot of goals recently and need to get back to a tighter defensive line.
West Ham are sat in midtable and will have one eye on finishing in seventh place in the Premier League this season. They have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five matches in the Premier League and that loss was the recent 1-0 win over Manchester City. In their last five away matches, the Hammers have only scored one goal in the Premier League and that is a concern, but fantastic for our first Cardiff vs West Ham prediction this weekend. Under 2.5 is a surprisingly appealing 10/11.
You can get 10/11 with bet365 for two or fewer to be scored in this match and that is our main betting tip.
Have a bet on Draw HT/Draw FT at odds of 9/2 with bet365 to complete our bets for the match.
It is hard to see how a lot of goals will be scored in this game, especially as Neil Warnock will be desperate to get his side back to a solid defensive until. The loss of Sol Bamba for the rest of the season is a huge blow but luckily for them, they’re playing a West Ham side who are on a really poor run of form on the road. The only goal they have scored in the last five away came at Selhurt Park against Crystal Palace. With all that in mind, we’re taking a chance on the correct score being 0-0 in this match.
Another potential bet for this match would be to use the half-time/full-time market and we can have a bet on draw at half-time and a draw at full-time. This bet is a better way to back the draw and it also gives some insurance against betting on the 0-0, because it could still be a draw and the bet would win if they’re scoring at half-time. The odds for this betting tip are 9/2 with bet365 and is certainly an interesting punt.
