Stoke City 16/5, Draw 13/5, Everton19/20
Goodison Park will see football this Match Day as Everton will play host to a red hot Stoke City team. This is a game between two teams on the rise and after good results in their previous outing, I expect a lot from both sides. This game should have goals, saves and a lot of action so I will definitely be watching.
Stoke City are my favorite betting team at the moment. This team has come from nowhere to become a real giant killer and they have killed of giants such as Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United. This team plays a very good style of football and they are backed well by their superstar goalkeeper, Butland, who is in great form. Stoke will be away from home in this match which will make this game a little hard but this is a side who won at against Manchester City on the road so I think they will not be disheartened by the fact they will be on the road. This is going to be a test for this up and coming Stoke City side and I think they are good enough to get a result here.
Everton on the other hand will come here determined to win. This is a quality side and after a slow start they have really began to push forward and make an impact on the league. This team should really be competing for Europe and although they are not near those spots at the moment, they will look to make a push up the ladder in the second half of the year and winning their home games will be a big part of it.
Overall I think that this is going to be an amazing game. It will be exciting and for us handicappers, there is a lot of value. I think the best way to go is to look at the outright result line. The draw is paying a good price and both teams are playing good football so it is very likely. I think that Everton are the better side but I just think that Stoke is playing too well at the moment to leave with nothing so the draw is the logical bet for me.
