FootyMad's prediction ...

Its not been a very profitable last few weeks for Cardiff City, and I'm afraid the Footymad team cannot see it getting too much better here. Look no further than honours being even at the end of this one. No-score draw

Sequence statistics:
Cardiff City 4 games since last home draw.
Not won in the 2 most recent games.
Blackpool 5 games since last away draw.
Last drawn game 6 outings ago.
