Cardiff vs Watford: Prediction and Betting Tips
Cardiff pushing for a playoff spot
Cardiff City had a lot of ups and downs this season. After a spell of a winless streak that lasted for eight matches from December to late January, Cardiff are undefeated in 11 matches. They had a six-match winning streak during that period.
Mick McCarthy’s team have made themselves a serious contender for the promotion playoffs as they battle with Bournemouth and Barnsley for sixth place. Currently, The Bluebirds are three points behind Barnsley at sixth.
The main reason for their recent success has been their incredible goal-scoring record in the 11 matches. The Bluebirds have scored 20 goals in those matches failing to score just in their last match against Huddersfield when it finished 0-0.
Watford to cling on automatic promotion
A very good run of form in the recent seven games have seen Watford reach the second place and an automatic promotion spot. They will be looking to keep their momentum against Cardiff having lost just one match in the last five matches.
Coach Xisco’s team plays possession football. They had better possession of the ball than their opponents in four of their last five matches. And in all those matches they ended up winning.
In their last match against Nottingham, Watford had 56% possession and 452 passes. They dominated the match with 57 dangerous attacks that resulted in 12 goal attempts of which four shots were on target.
- Cardiff have won their last three home matches
- Cardiff have scored in four of their last five matches
- Watford have won four of their last five away matches
- Watford have scored in two of their last five away matches
Cardiff vs Watford Prediction
In two of Cardiff’s and Watford’s last five games both teams scored. During the season, 17/35 of Cardiff’s matches saw both teams score and 13/35 of Watford’s matches saw both teams score.
Both of these teams are in great form and fighting for promotion to the Premier League. Cardiff are a good scoring team, especially in the last five games. Watford on the other side are a very low-scoring team during the season but in the last five matches, they have scored ten.
