Cardiff v Newcastle Odds

Recently promoted Cardiff began life back in the top-flight with a 2-0 defeat at Bournemouth last weekend and they barely laid a glove on their hosts, which must be a concern as Bournemouth managed to keep the fewest clean sheets in the Premier League last term.

The Welsh side look short of attacking options and Saturday's match has the potential to be a turgid affair, with Betfair going 1/2 about under 2.5 goals and an industry best price 15/8 about under 1.5 goals.

The latter looks like a very good bet as Cardiff conceded just 16 goals in their 23 home games in the Championship last season.

Newcastle are hardly overflowing with goals themselves as they managed just 39 in the Premier League last season and all is not well with the North East team. Manager Rafa Benitez cut a frustrated figure for much of the summer and his side succumbed to a 2-1 loss against Tottenham in their opening game.

The Magpies are 6/4 favourites with Unibet this weekend but we can't back a side that won just four away league games (drew four, lost eleven) last term at that price, even if they have won 10 of their last 11 meetings with Cardiff in all competitions.

Newcastle haven't lost to these Welsh opponents in the league since 1981 and it is perhaps worth noting that Christian Atsu has enjoyed playing Cardiff in the past. Atsu has scored in each of his last two appearances against Cardiff and he is 6/1 to score at anytime on Saturday with Unibet.
