West Bromwich Albion will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Championship to three matches when they welcome Cardiff City to The Hawthorns on Tuesday night (20:00).

The Baggies were forced to settle for a point due to a late equaliser against promotion rivals Ipswich Town in their previous fixture on Saturday, denying them a second successive win in the second tier.

Cardiff's form has been up and down in recent months and they suffered a defeat at the weekend at home to Preston North End.

West Brom vs Cardiff Betting Tips

  • West Brom to win to nil - 11/8
  • West Brom -1 handicap - 7/4

Match Odds

West Brom are the 4/7 favourites to get the win here. A draw can be backed at 13/5, while Cardiff are 5/1 to pull off an upset.

Both teams to score has landed in four of the last six meetings between these sides. This is priced at 11/10 for Tuesday's clash. Over 2.5 goals is valued at the same odds.

Team News

There was more heartbreak for West Brom striker Daryl Dike at the weekend as he was forced off the pitch with an achilles problem, having been plagued with long-term injuries in the last two years. The American left the field in tears and while it remains to be seen just how severe this latest setback will be, he will be a huge loss for West Brom.

Kyle Bartley was also forced off against Ipswich, meaning Okay Yokuslu could drop into defence.

Grady Diangana could be in contention to feature after returning from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Cardiff midfielder Aaron Ramsey could be set to make his first start in four months at The Hawthorns. Mark McGuinness and Nat Phillips are both sidelined for the Bluebirds.

West Brom to win to nil @ 11/8

Albion have been terrific on home soil this campaign, losing just two of their 14 league clashes at The Hawthorns.

Carlos Corberan has made their ground a fortress and as many teams have experienced this term, they are a very tough nut to crack. This will be a huge ask for an inconsistent Cardiff side in midweek, and the Baggies should be able to maintain their impressive home form.

With the likes of Jed Wallace, John Swift, Diangana, Brandon Thomas-Asante and rising star Tom Fellows, Albion have the quality to put the Bluebirds to the sword.

West Brom -1 handicap @ 7/4

We are that confident that West Brom will triumph in this contest that we fancy them to overcome a -1 handicap, especially at 7/4.

With the players as mentioned above there is plenty of quality in Corberan's ranks for Albion to score a hatful on Tuesday night.

They put four past Blackburn Rovers a few weeks ago and there have been five occasions this term in which they have scored three or more goals in a league match.

Against an out-of-sorts Cardiff side, we fancy them to make that six matches come full-time and overcoming a -1 handicap a piece of cake.
