Blackpool vs Cardiff: Top Free Betting Tips

Cardiff City will be keen to distance themselves from the relegation zone in the upcoming EFL Championship fixture against Blackpool. Bluebirds will be visiting  Bloomfield Road to play Round 40 of the league on Friday, 7 April. The Seasiders have successive defeats against Preston and Coventry, while Cardiff lost to Swansea previously.

Match Result Prediction: Blackpool to Win

Blackpool has faced three defeats in the last four Championship outings but the team has fared better when considering their efforts at Bloomfield Road alone. The Seasiders have gone undefeated in seven of the previous eight games on home soil but only won two of these bouts. On the other hand, Cardiff has been shambolic on their away adventures, losing six of the last seven games away from Cardiff City Stadium. The reverse fixture this season ended without a winner but we see Blackpool currently in the position to add three points in this game.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Four of the last five meetings between these two clubs have concluded with Under 2.5 Goals. Blackpool’s defence has been favourable at home before the last game as they collected three clean sheets in the previous five fixtures at Bloomfield Road. Offensively, the home side has rattled the net eight times in the same duration, however, scored six in a single game against QPR. On the other hand, Cardiff City has slotted the ball home only twice in the last five road fixtures. Therefore, we expect the previous trend of low-scoring totals to be repeated between these teams in this encounter.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Blackpool

Blackpool managed clean sheets against Burnley and Stoke City in the span of their previous four home games. Meanwhile, Cardiff City has been unable to hit the back of the net in three of the same number of away fixtures. Blackpool has scored in the latest consecutive games but they have managed to score more than once in only one game since the mid of February 2023. Considering these facts, a slim margin of 1-0 for Blackpool is the most probable result for this game.

Blackpool vs Cardiff: Form, Recent Games, and News

Blackpool Preview

The Seasiders travelled to Preston North End in the last game and conceded a 3-1 defeat. Blackpool has only eight victories in their 39 league outings and are buried in the relegation zone in the second-last position. The team will have to fo without left-winger Keshi Anderson in their pursuit of crucial three points in this fixture. 

Cardiff City Preview

Conceding a goal in the ninth minute of the stoppage time, the Bluebirds faced a 2-3 defeat against Swansea City. Cardiff City are on the edge of the relegation area and has only a difference of GD points from Huddersfield in the twenty-second position. Cardiff’s quest for a victory will face a setback due to the absence of Jamilu Collins and Callum Robinson due to injuries.
