Newcastle secured an immediate return to the Premier League with a convincing 4-1 win over Preston on Monday but their promotion celebrations have since been overshadowed by HMRC raids at St James’s Park on Thursday, with the club now under investigation for tax fraud. In many ways, the two events are symbolic of an underwhelming season and the home win is worth a nibble at 13/5.
The Magpies need a win in the Welsh capital to keep the title race alive, although the outcome of this game will be irrelevant if – as expected – Brighton beat Bristol City at home on Saturday, so the focus in the local media has naturally shifted away from any importance that might have been riding this game and it might be emulated by the attitude of the players.
Cardiff haven’t been the most reliable team in recent weeks, having barely tried a leg since the beginning of March. But the’ve still taken ten points from four home matches in that period and the respective 16-match shot data still makes them favourites. If they raise their standards for the cameras in their final home game, then they should have enough quality.
Peter Whittingham is expected to play his final game at the Cardiff City Stdaium, having failed to agree a new deal with the club has has served for more than a decade. So the 14/1 first goalscorer and 9/2 anytime scorer might be decent novelty bets but the value pales in significance to the 25/1 available on the Cardiff 2-0 correct score.
