Cardiff City entertain West Bromwich Albion at the Cardiff City Stadium on Tuesday evening (19:45) in the Championship in what is a battle between seventh and fifth.

The Bluebirds have been one of the surprise packages so far this season while the Baggies are starting to build momentum of their own. Here are some of the best markets on offer in this second-tier clash.

Match Odds

Cardiff are valued at 7/4 to win this one. A draw is available at 11/5, while West Brom are on offer at 13/8 to pick up the three points.

Both teams to score in this one is marketed at 4/5. Over 2.5 goals is 11/10.

Team News

Aaron Ramsey remains sidelined for Cardiff City with a knee injury he picked up in September. Callum O'Dowda is a fellow long-term absentee, with the Republic of Ireland international having been out of action since August.

West Brom could be without Nathaniel Chalobah in midweek after the midfielder missed the weekend's victory over Ipswich Town at The Hawthorns.

West Brom and both teams to score @ 9/2

Carlos Corberan's side are on a roll at the moment in the Championship, having won four of their last five games. Their victory over second-placed Ipswich on Saturday was a real statement of intent from the Baggies, and at a time when there is a lot of uncertainty off the field, success on the pitch would be most welcome to supporters.

They will face a tough test at Cardiff, who themselves have been impressive this season and are in the conversation for a play-off place. They posted a dramatic win over Preston North End last time out in which they were 1-0 down in the 90th minute to end up winning 2-1 at the death.

This game could be one of the most interesting battles in midweek, but one in which we are expecting the visitors to prevail.

Over 2.5 goals @ 11/10

We are expecting a few goals to be scored in this one. Both these teams have shown efficiency in front of goal this season as Cardiff and West Brom have scored 27 and 28 league goals respectively.

And while we are expecting Albion to come out on top in this contest, we do feel that this could be a cracking game of football, with goals at both ends. This match will offer great insight into both these teams and their play-off credentials, especially when they are each in fine form.
