Reading vs Cardiff City – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Cardiff are aiming to make it two wins from two when they take on Reading at the Select Car Leasing Stadium on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Cardiff City Double Chance

Cardiff City carried their excellent pre-season form into last weekend’s Championship opener when they upset the odds to beat recently-relegated Norwich City 1-0 and after that fine performance, the Bluebirds should provide stiff opposition for Reading on Saturday. The Royals lost their first assignment at Blackpool (1-0) and they are worth opposing again here in the double chance market against their more confident visitors.

Under 2.5 Goals

Reading and Cardiff City lost and won by the same slender margin in their first fixtures of the new campaign last weekend, and the chances of another low-scoring tussle when they meet at the Select Car Leasing Stadium seem high. Two of the last three league meetings between the clubs produced under 2.5 goals and with sharp-shooting forwards in short supply in both camps a stake on the same market is advised at the prices on offer.
