Cardiff City represent Asian Handicap value at home to Newcastle United
Cardiff City welcome Newcastle United to the Cardiff City Stadium Saturday lunchtime for their first home Premier League game since returning to the top-flight. Check out our Cardiff City v Newcastle United betting predictions and tips below.
Asian Handicap – Cardiff City +0.25 @ 5/6 with BetVictor
This may only be the second round of matches in the new season, but it’s already a big game for both these teams after defeats on the opening day of the campaign, with the Bluebirds going down to a 2-0 defeat at Bournemouth and the Magpies losing 2-1 at home to Tottenham Hotspur.
If Neil Warnock’s team is to have any hope of avoiding relegation, their home form will almost certainly need to be a key factor and the likes of Newcastle are teams they really need to be beating.
“I thought we did alright”#CardiffCity boss Neil Warnock gives his assessment on his side’s Premier League defeat by Bournemouth.

Cardiff City v Newcastle United Betting Predictions
Cardiff look likely to struggle for goals this season but, with a vocal backing behind them and early season optimism, they might just be able to get the better of things against Newcastle and can be backed at 23/10 with BetVictor to do so. The draw is on offer at 11/5 with William Hill and Newcastle can be backed at 31/20 with Betfair.
Another way of backing Cardiff is via the Asian Handicap market, where they are 5/6 with BetVictor +0.25. That means that in the event of a draw, half your stake will be matched at the winning odds and the other half returned. If Cardiff win, then the bet is matched in full.
A correct score bet of 2-1 to Cardiff is 12/1 with bet365* and Kenneth Zohore might be worth an interest at 8/1 for the First Goalscorer.
