Brentford vs Cardiff - read our expert predictions, betting tips and match preview

Brentford’s inability to put together an extended run of form will cost them a place in the Championship play-offs at the end of the season. The Bees’ last five reads lose-draw-win-win-lose, following back-to-back victories with defeat at Elland Road last weekend, a match that was there for the taking. That was Paul Heckingbottom’s first win in charge of The Peacocks, Liam Cooper scoring a powerful header on 31 minutes to make the difference. Dean Smith wasn’t happy with the officials, claiming the goal was offside and his team were denied an obvious penalty. They’re favourites to bounce back, William Hill’s 11/8 the best you’ll find.

Second-place Cardiff City got their season back on track with four wins on the bounce. That unbeaten run has the Welsh club six points off leaders Wolves and we’re in danger of having a title race to cheer on in the final months of the campaign, despite Wolves looking home and hosed during the winter. Aston Villa in third are 10 points off the lead, four behind Cardiff and automatic promotion. Neil Warnock signed a new contract at the club this week, keeping him at The Bluebirds until 2020 and that’ll provide a boost to all concerned. Away win is 23/10 at Betfair.

Brentford vs Cardiff – Championship predictions

Why are these predictions worth betting on?

The price on Cardiff is astonishing. They are on the road, but travel to meet an opponent coming in on the back of a shaky run of form, including defeat last time, Brentford winning just two of their five most-recent matches. Cardiff have won each of their last four and find themselves with half a chance of lifting the title. Take an away win in your betting tips at 23/10 (Betfair). That price is just too good to miss.

Cardiff have scored two goals in each of their last three matches with Brentford, including a 2-0 win in the reverse leg earlier this season. Ralls and Ward were on target in the first 45 to cap a comfortable outing and we’ll try the repeat in our correct score predictions at a stunning 17/1 with Bet Victor. That’s bigger than it should be and if City can nick an early goal things will get interesting.
