What Trueform says for Burnley vs Cardiff
Burnley eased their relegation fears with a 3-1 victory at Bournemouth which took them to the brink of preserving their Premier League status.
Cardiff are in the bottom three and five points adrift of safety after a run of five defeats in their last six games.
The Bluebirds are dismal on their travels so 9/10 for a home win is a solid opening Burnley vs Cardiff prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley bounced back from an early Ashley Barnes own goal to record only their fourth away win of the season and move eight points clear of the bottom three.
Chris Wood and Ashley Westwood scored in quick succession to put the Clarets in front at the break with Barnes wrapping up the points early in the second half.
If their present points tally of 36, with five remaining fixtures, is not enough for them to be considered safe, they can essentially achieve that ambition with victory here.
Manager Sean Dyche said: “The calmness was key and I was really pleased with that. We’ve done that better since Christmas.
“Twenty-four points in 14 games since Christmas, that’s a fantastic return. With performances like that you can see why we’ve got that return.
“When you think you’re 1-0 down early in the game then it’s up there with our best performances.”
Burnley have netted in their last 11 games at home but have kept only three clean sheets during the same period.
With that in mind, and looking at the Burnley vs Cardiff odds, a home win and both teams to score has appeal at 16/5.
Last Burnley line-up: Heaton, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Cork, Hendrick, Westwood, Barnes, Wood, McNeil.
A Look At Cardiff City’s Betting Odds
After back-to-back defeats to Chelsea and Manchester City, Cardiff know their next two fixtures are critical to their hopes of staying up.
Following this trip to Burnley, Neil Warnock’s men head to Brighton but only already-relegated duo Huddersfield and Fulham have worse away records in the division.
Cardiff have accumulated just two wins and eight points from 15 matches on their travels, scoring a meagre nine times.
They have lost four of their last five on the road and have been blanked four times in their last seven away matches.
Warnock is well aware of the scale of the challenge with Liverpool and Manchester United still to come.
He said: “I think we have to win three out of six and get a draw somewhere. But I think we can get results from all of the last six games.”
Cardiff have been beaten 2-0 three times away from home this season and while that is tempting, we are going to back them to get on the scoresheet.
With survival on the line, plus the hosts’ inability to keep clean sheets, the Bluebirds can grab a consolation with a 2-1 home win at 33/4 completing our Burnley vs Cardiff tips.
Last Cardiff line-up: Etheridge, Peltier, Bennett, Morrison, Ecuele-Manga, Ralls, Murphy, Gunnarsson, Camarasa, Niasse, Hoilett.
