The Betpal Football Bet of the Day is in the Championship, where leaders Cardiff host Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday. Crystal Palace replaced Cardiff at the top of the Division on Saturday, can the Welsh side reclaim top spot?
Match: Cardiff v Sheffield Wednesday
Bet of the Day: Cardiff Win
Best Odds: 1.62 with Pinnacle
The Championship has been unpredictable this term, but Cardiff look a good thing at home on Sunday, and certainly offer a few ticks of value despite their low quotes. They have won nine from nine at home this term, and their defence has been rock solid, conceding just five times during those nine fixtures. The visitors are suffering a confidence crushing run, and look ill-equipped to cope with the title chasers. Wednesday have lost six of their nine (66%) road games in the Championship, and their recent form is horrendous. They have suffered five straight losses since beating the equally poor Peterborough (The only side below them in the table). Of those five defeats, four were by two or more goals – so Bet365′s Asian Handicap price of 2.5 with a -1.5 goal handicap for Cardiff is of note – but the Bluebirds have only covered that margin in three of their nine home games, and the match odds market has enough value to leave the bet simple.
