Cardiff vs Leeds – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Both Teams to Score (3/4)

  • Three of Cardiff’s last four Championship fixtures featured goals from both teams.
  • Leeds managed to secure just one clean sheet in their last five Championship away tussles.

Leeds look like prime promotion contenders this season, though the Yorkshireman have let their standards slip on the road of late and their return of one clean sheet from five away assignments suggests they will concede at Cardiff. The visitors are the fourth-highest scorers in the Championship however, and our opening Cardiff vs Leeds prediction tips them to bite back in Wales.

Player to Watch – Dan James

Dan James could be one of several Welsh players in Leeds’s ranks this weekend for their visit to Wales and the winger will be keen to make an impact on his return to his homeland. The 26-year-old has been in fine form in the Championship this term, lodging eight goals and five assists in 20 starts in the division.
