Ipswich vs Cardiff: Top free betting tips

Ipswich will be looking forward to regaining their winning form in the EFL Championship when they face Cardiff City on Saturday, 2 September. The Blues enter this game after defeating Reading in the EFL Cup while Cardiff City found victory against Birmingham City in the same competition.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Ipswich’s front line has been prolific in front of the target and scored an average of two goals per game in the last five matches. Cardiff City have also rattled the net nine times in the same duration. But the Bluebirds have also allowed eight goals to be scored during the aforestated period. Additionally, two of the recent three meetings between these teams have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Given the current situation, we predict the teams to share a total of at least three goals in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Ipswich has found the back of the net in all of the starting four league outings this season while conceding goals in two matches. Meanwhile, Cardiff City also managed a scoring string by rattling the net in the last five consecutive fixtures. But their defence was not resilient as they failed to keep a single clean sheet in that duration. Three of the previous four H2Hs of these two sides have also finished with BTTS outcomes. Therefore, we believe we to see this game with both teams on the scoring side.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Ipswich

Newly promoted Ipswich have scored multiple goals in four of the recent five matches in the EFL Championship and EFL Cup. On the other hand, Cardiff City scored just one goal in two of the recent three league outings. The Bluebirds also conceded two goals in two of those matches. Additionally, Cardiff City have been limited to scoring only one goal in three of the recent four H2Hs against Ipswich at Portman Road. Given these numbers, we predict a 2-1 lead for the Tractor Boys before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
