Cardiff vs Aston Villa – England Championship Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
With 2017 now officially among us, most of the European league are still in the entire “new year” stiffness. Not the English leagues, however – which means that we’ve also woken up and are ready to return to our winning ways in football betting. The first game which we want to analyze in 2017 takes places in Wales, where local team Cardiff hosts Aston Villa.
Cardiff City vs Aston Villa – 02/01/2017
Full Time Result: Cardiff City 2.80 or 9/5 Draw 3.25 or 9/4 Aston Villa 2.80 or 9/5
Cardiff actually has one game fewer than their opponents heading into this game, because their last game was abandoned at half-time due to a very dense fog. Thus, the Welsh team sit 21st in the standings, 3 points above the relegation zone, since they were leapfrogged by both Burton and QPR.
Their form isn’t the best available either, with a single win in their last 5 games, and their home form seems less ideal as well: 7 points from their last 5 games, including a rather disappointing 0-1 defeat against Wigan.
On the other hand, Aston Villa has completely different objectives for 2017. After a very inconsistent first half of the season, the Villains will look to at least push for the playoff places if not gain direct promotion back to the Premier League.
Although their form is picking up, with a single loss in the last 5 games, their away form is rather sketchy, with only 2 wins in their last 10 games. Thankfully for them, they have a clean bill of health and a much better team – at least on paper.
Cardiff City vs Aston Villa Betting Tips
That being said, we favor Villa to continue their good streak and at least avoid defeat in this game. X2 is our main idea of the day, as well as Villa to score at least once. A “both teams to score” bet can also be a good idea since Cardiff usually scores in front of their home fans. All in all, we do back Villa to do well here and even possibly leave with all three points.
Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 1.95 or 20/21 with 138
Aston Villa Win & Over 2.5 Goals @ 4.25 or 16/5 with 138
England Championship Predictions And Betting Tips
Which teams will be promoted to Premier League for 2018-19 season? In many ways, the EFL Championship is the world’s most competitive and fierce domestic league – and to think that it’s actually England second division. The opportunity to take part in the financial recipe of the English Premier League is nothing short of immense. Alongside significant economic gains, the glory that awaits teams who will duel Manchester United, Chelsea, City or Arsenal is another great prize. The league itself is also setup for greatness: 24 teams, three who just failed to cope with the rigorous Premier League, other three which have emerged as the best teams in the League One. With so many differences, both in style as well…
