Newcastle v Cardiff betting preview, tips and team news
Newcastle worth opposing at short odds
Newcastle have won just one of their last nine Premier League matches and are hard to trust at short odds when they host Cardiff.
Just one point separates the two teams in the table and Rafa Benitez’s men have achance to climb out of the relegation zone with a victory but they look worth opposing at the prices.
The Magpies have won two home games all season, scoring just seven goals in 11 matches at St James’ Park, while Neil Warnock’s Bluebirds have been similarly blunt this season, scoring just six goals on the road. This is unlikely to be a high-scoring affair.
