Only three teams have won more away games in the Championship than Burnley and following Cardiff’s 3-0 home reverse against Hull in midweek, it would be understandable if a few punters fancied a flutter on the Clarets to also emerge victorious in the Bluebirds’ own backyard, especially as the visitors are as high as 10/3 with Coral.
However, Burnley’s play-off push has all but evaporated in recent weeks and with just one win in their last seven, the Clarets are in pretty poor shape as they prepare to head to south Wales.
Moreover, Malky Mackay will be demanding a response from his players after Tuesday’s horrow show, a third home defeat in four and Cardiff can bounce back to form with a crucial victory, priced by Boylesports at even money.
Neither side looks particularly defensively sound at present and a match tally of three or more goals seems a safe bet at 10/11 (William Hill). This can be combined with a home victory in one bet at a tasty 2/1 via bet365.
Cardiff to win and over 2.5 goals in the game – 2/1 (bet365)
