Bet of the Day: Five-star Cardiff to shine away at Reading

Bluebirds are on an excellent run

Three points for Cardiff City this evening will see them extend their winning run to five matches in the Championship.

The Bluebirds should be able to do so away at lacklustre Reading. The Royals are in the bottom-half of the table and have only won three of their 10 home games so far this season.

For a Cardiff side that boast the division’s third-best away record, a trip to the Madejski Stadium should be an enticing proposition.

Neil Warnock’s charges are in excellent form of late and have taken nine points from the last 12 available on their travels. With that kind of form, the visitors are our Bet of the Day to see off Reading tonight at 6/4.

Bluebirds to keep it tight

Cardiff’s defensive record is exceptional. The South Wales club have conceded just 14 goals in 20 Championship games so far. In their last four matches, they’ve been even stingier, with only one strike finding its way past the gloves of Neil Etheridge.

On the road, they’ve kept two clean sheets on the bounce against Barnsley and Nottingham Forest. Coral go 16/5 about the Bluebirds to Win to Nil.

Hoilett to maintain his form

Junior Hoilett has been pivotal to City’s recent good form. The 27-year-old has scored three goals in his last six appearances, including two in his last two matches

Against a Reading side that tend to leave gaps at the back, the pacy winger has the quality to take advantage once again. The Canada international is 15/2 to Score First, while you can get 5/2 on him scoring Anytime.
