Burnley - Cardiff City Betting Preview: Brilliant Bluebirds set to seal title in style

Malky Mackay's men secured promotion to the Premier League in midweek and Willie Duncan is backing the Bluebirds to win all three points at Turf Moor on Saturday afternoon
Cardiff City celebrated promotion to the Premier League when they secured a battling 0-0 draw against Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night and the Bluebirds will look to seal the title when they travel to take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday lunchtime.

Malky Mackay’s side are chalked up at a juicy 17/10 (2.70) with William Hill to wrap up the title in style by claiming all three points from this weekend’s clash while the home side are available at 6/4 (2.50) with the same firm to spoil Cardiff’s party. The draw is rated as a 9/4 (3.25) chance with William Hill this weekend.

The same firm's special “headline offer” for the Bluebirds is the 5/1 (6.0) on offer from the odds compilers that the veteran Wales striker Craig Bellamy nets at any time in a win for the English Premier League’s newest inductees.

Fraizer Campbell joined the Bluebirds from Sunderland in January and the 25-year-old striker, who has scored six goals in 11 appearances for Cardiff, is good value at 5/1 (6.0) with William Hill to maintain that rich vein of form by breaking the deadlock on Saturday afternoon.

Wales striker Sam Vokes is the subject of the “headline offer” from the same firm for the home side, with William Hill offering 6/1 (7.0) that the 23-year-old striker scores at any time in a Burnley victory.

Sean Dyche’s side, though, have won just two of their last 15 matches in the Championship – a sequence of results which has wrecked any hopes that the Clarets had of joining Malky Mackay’s men in the top flight next season.

With that in mind, and with the Bluebirds’ confidence soaring, Cardiff look to represent outstanding value at 17/10 (2.70) with William Hill to seal the title with victory on Saturday afternoon while the same firm’s tempting 5/1 (6.0) quote for Fraizer Campbell to open the scoring should be snapped up by eager punters here.
