The Premier League continues this weekend and on Saturday there are six fixtures, starting at 12:30 in the Welsh capital.
Brighton to win @ 21/10
It has been a tough start to life in the Premier League for Cardiff but their home form will be crucial to their hopes of survival. The Seagulls’ only win of the campaign came in front of their fans, a 4-2 triumph over Fulham, and Neil Warnock will be demanding similar spirit.
Opponents Brighton’s remarkable run of three straight 1-0 wins came to an end last weekend at Everton but Chris Hughton will be confident his troops can get back to winning ways.
They have traditionally struggled on the road but a victory at Newcastle and that encouraging showing at Goodison Park suggests they may have found a formula.
A tight game is likely and under 1.5 goals might be worth a look at 33/20 but when looking for a result, the Seagulls appear to have a slight edge all over the park.
Watford to win @ 2/1
Dismissals at boardroom level usually mean the manager is also running out of time and Mark Hughes will be desperate for three points when his Southampton side welcome Watford.
The St Mary’s fans have seen just one victory since Hughes’ appointment in March and a coach as experienced as the Welshman will know the signs are there that the hierarchy are assessing their options.
Watford lost 1-0 last weekend at Newcastle but that does not necessarily mean they were the weaker side and Javi Gracia will be imploring his players to maintain their attacking approach.
The Hornets won this fixture last season and look an extremely tempting price to get the better of Saints team in real peril.
Tottenham to win and both to score @ 21/10
Finally on Saturday, the late game produces a London derby between Crystal Palace and Tottenham.
The woes surrounding Spurs’ stadium woes have led to an air of pessimism engulfing the club but they have won their last three, including a morale-boosting midweek 2-1 Champions League triumph against PSV Eindhoven.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have only kept one clean sheet since August and that suggests chances at both ends, although Spurs seem to have the quality to add another victory at a ground they have lost at just once since 2005.
