Cardiff vs Preston Prediction

Taking a look at the overall form this season in the Championship, Cardiff will look like the inferior of the two teams.

A recent 3-3 draw on the road with Leeds has moved them to the 12th spot in the league table. Meanwhile Preston has a five point lead than the host residing at the 3rd spot in the table.

Besides that, Cardiff will be glad to take advantage as they are returning home after two winless away games in succession. Moreover, the host has lost only once in the last ten home matches.

It shows that home ground is the strongest suit for Cardiff. As such, Preston is also strong at home and arguably the best home team in the mix.

Be that as it may, Preston has been facing problems at the back causing them to lose 6 of their 10 away fixtures in the campaign so far.

Also, the visiting side has lost the last three away matches in their schedule. So, they will be at the backhand in the clash at Cardiff.

Despite being in the top part of the league table, Preston will be the lesser favorites because of their dip in form away from home.

Henceforth, the host is more probability to win the game. To be safe, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game.
