Betting odds & tips

Liverpool are the heavy favourites to beat Cardiff at 1/9 (1.11) with bet365. At 25/1 (26.0) to win, Cardiff are considered serious underdogs.

Diogo Jota is 9/4 (3.25) to be first goalscorer, while Luis Diaz is rated 4/1 (5.0).

Considering the difference in strength between these sides, odds of Evens (2.0) for Liverpool to win with a -2 handicap may prove a good bet.

After making it through almost two whole months of bad results, Cardiff have bounced back a bit since November but remain inconsistent in the Championship.

They are on a two-game winning run, however, which will provide them with a bit of a boost heading into this match.

Liverpool, though, have had a strong season, having lost just twice in all competitions. Their last loss came against Leicester in December.

In the six weeks since then they have avoided defeat against the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal.
