Cardiff City vs Leeds United: Top free betting tips
Our Cardiff City vs Leeds United prediction is for this match to be an intriguing affair. Cardiff City is very much an on-off side that one week will perform excellently but then will be poor the following week. As proven by their 2-1 win against QPR which came just before a 4-0 hammering to Sheffield Wednesday.
The Bluebirds sit just outside of the Championship playoff places in ninth position, three points below sixth-placed Sunderland. The South Wales side has won eleven and lost eleven of their twenty-six matches this season, with only Middlesbrough, Blackburn and Leicester drawing fewer matches than Cardiff. Leeds on the other hand have fallen out of form recently with just two league wins from their previous six matches, suffering defeats to Sunderland, Preston and West Brom.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals
Four of the previous five matches for Leeds have seen 2.5 goals or more scored with the 1-0 defeat to West Brom being the only match to not reach 2.5 goals. Cardiff have themselves shown how capable they are in front of goal but also how shaky they are defensively recently. The Bluebirds have had just one match from their previous six fail to see 2.5 goals or more scored.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
For our next Cardiff City vs Leeds United prediction, we have stayed in the goal markets and have gone with both teams to score. Six of the previous seven meetings finished with both teams finding the back of the net with a total of thirty-two goals scored in those seven meetings.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Leeds United
In our final Cardiff City vs Leeds United prediction, we are predicting a win for Daniel Farke's Leeds United side. Leeds are unbeaten in their previous three matches against Cardiff with Cardiff winning once in five attempts against the Yorkshire team. Leeds will be on a high after a very good and comfortable FA Cup third round victory over Peterborough United which saw Patrick Bamford score a goal of the season contender.
