What Trueform says for Cardiff vs Wolves
Cardiff have won two of their last three Premier League home games and could prove value to get the better of Wolves in south Wales on Friday night.
Wanderers just seem to have lost their early-season sparkle after picking up only one point from five top-flight fixtures.
The feeling is that this will be a close encounter, so we’re tempted to side with City at an attractive 14/5 for our first Cardiff vs Wolves prediction.
A Look At Cardiff City’s Betting Odds
Cardiff have struggled to compete on the road at this level and again came up short when going down 1-0 at Everton, where they had just 29 per cent of the possession.
However, Neil Warnock was happy enough with the effort shown by his players in a hard-fought Goodison Park contest.
“We’re not going to give it up easily,” he said. “Probably, we shouldn’t have gone up last year and we did, proved a few people wrong. It’s twice as hard in this league, but nothing’s impossible.”
Warnock knows the Bluebirds will have to do well on home turf if they are to survive and he should see this as a vital fixture, following recent wins over Fulham and Cardiff here.
City netted six times in those victories and 13/5 for them to again score more than once catches the eye from the Cardiff vs Wolves odds.
Last Cardiff line-up: Etheridge, Morrison, Ecuele Manga, Cunningham, Bamba, Arter, Ralls, Paterson, Gunnarsson, Camarasa, Harris.
Josh Murphy is expected to return to the Cardiff starting line-up, while Warnock has some late decisions to make as he has “two or three niggles” in camp and Kenneth Zohore is still struggling with a calf injury.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves failed to build on an encouraging draw at Arsenal when falling to a 2-0 defeat against Huddersfield at Molineux.
Most pundits expected Wanderers to return to winning ways in that fixture, but we picked out the Terriers as a value option at 13/2 in our preview.
Aaron Mooy found the net in each half, as the Midlands outfit looked off the pace on their return from the international break.
Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo pulled no punches when assessing his team’s display, stating: “It was probably one of the worst performances we have had.
“We have to take a good look, find out why and prepare better. It’s a very disappointing result. We played bad, very bad.”
Wanderers are still eight points clear of their next opponents but few would argue it is a worrying time for the visitors.
Let’s add 25/2 for a 2-1 home win to our Cardiff vs Wolves betting tips.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Vinagre, Neves, Moutinho, Cavaleiro, Jimenez, Costa.
Wolves remain without Jonny Otto, as the wing-back continues his recovery from the knee injury he sustained while playing for Spain during this month’s international break.
