Reason For Cardiff vs Stoke Betting Tips

  • Two new managers clash at the Cardiff City Stadium.
  • Michael O’Neill has benefitted from a straightforward start.
  • Cardiff have won every home meeting with sides from 12th down.
  • Stoke could lose for the 12th time this season here.

Home Debut for Harris

This clash brings together the two new arrivals in the Championship, with Michael O’Neill taking Stoke to Cardiff in his third game as boss. In the opposite dugout Neil Harris is making his home debut with the Bluebirds, while he is chasing his first victory with his new side. Following their 2-2 draw at Charlton in his first game, there are positives for Cardiff to take.

Meanwhile, Stoke need their winning run to continue to pull away from danger. However, after back to back victories will the Potters slip up once again?

New Arrivals Thriving

So far, it’s been a perfect spell at Stoke for Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill. However, you have to wonder what impact his time with his national side had over recent weeks. Instead of spending two weeks on the training ground with his players, he managed his country against Germany and Holland. While Stoke won games either side of that, they were away to the league’s worst home side before hosting the division’s worst travellers.

Meanwhile, Harris has already boosted Cardiff, with their solid 2-2 draw at a Charlton side who have been pushing for the top six at stages this term. Their away record led to the dismissal of Neil Warnock, with the former Millwall boss brought it to try and liven up the Bluebirds.

Stoke’s Problems Continue

Cardiff have had their problems this season, but Warnock’s side were doing enough at home to guarantee a solid finish this season. The former manager certainly wasn’t fired for his return at home, which has put the Bluebirds in the top three in terms of results at home. Against a Stoke side who are still in single figures in terms of points, we see the hosts getting the win.

Cardiff have beaten every side they’ve met here from 12th down. Meanwhile, Stoke don’t have much of a record on the road. They’ve lost five times on their travels already, with Michael O’Neill’s debut away win at Barnsley coming against the only team in the league who have fewer points at home than Stoke. We don’t think that points to a major turnaround here, while Cardiff are well priced to see off a side who have lost 11 times in 17 games this season.

Cardiff come into this one without a clean sheet in their last seven matches in the league, while they’ve seen both teams score in 65% of their league games this term. With the Potters looking improved up front under their new boss, we’re backing a 2-1 home victory for the Bluebirds in this clash.
