Cardiff v Bolton predictions and tips

A midweek interest from the Championship as Cardiff take on Bolton. The Welsh club sit fourth in the table, unbeaten in four, a run showing two wins and a pair of draws. They had to settle for a share at the weekend when playing out a 1-1 draw with Millwall at The Den on Friday night, Hoilett’s early goal cut-out by Gregory in the first-half. Neil Warnock was furious at the referee and let it be known at full-time, saying the man in the middle cost his side three points. They’ll be determined to get back on track with victory here and the locals can be backed at 11/20 (Betfair).That’s favourite, ahead of the draw at 16/5 with the same firm.

Bolton also go in on the back of an eye-catching run of form, winning two and drawing two of their last four. The Trotters are just two points better than the relegation zone but are moving in the right direction. They picked up a point on Saturday when playing out a 1-1 finish with Fulham at the Macron in an entertaining match. Targett got the Londoners off to a flyer, scoring inside four minutes but they couldn’t put the game to bed and paid the price, Le Fondre levelling up on 61. Both teams to score here is 11/10 (Betfair), the away win 13/2, best when getting your money down at Boylesports.

Cardiff vs Bolton – Championship predictions

Cardiff thought they did enough to deserve all three points at the weekend and they’ll be looking to put things right here. They also have some making up to do in this fixture, losing 2-0 at the Macron before Christmas. The stats don’t do an awful lot to support it but we fancy the home side to nick the points and will be backing a Bluebirds win in our betting tips at 11/20 with Betfair. That’s one for your accumulators but it should prove a winning leg.

Both teams have scored in two of the last three renewals of this fixture and we keep that in mind when giving the best of our correct score predictions. 2-1 Cardiff is played to interest stakes but there’s plenty to get excited about in the price, 888Sport writing our pick off as a 15/2 shot. That’ll give us an interest on the night and would’ve been a winning punt when the sides last met at this venue.
