The Britanica will be filled with life this weekend as Stoke City play at home against Aston Villa in what should be a pretty one sided contest. The home side are a much better side and their opponents are all but over as far as their life in the Premier League is concerned. I am expecting Villa to get smashed here and the bookmakers agree with me. That being said, there is still a ton of value in this match and we can exploit this well I think.
Firstly I think that we can bet on the handicap here. I normally don’t bet on the handicap in EPL since the teams always compete well but I think we can have an exception here since Aston Villa are simply way too poor. We are getting a good enough price on Stoke City -1 and I think that this is a good bet so I will be putting on quite a big wager.
Secondly, I expect a lot of goals. Stoke are really good going forward and Aston Villa are really poor at the back. I think that the likes of Shaqiri and Bojan will have field days and they will take advantage of this and put a lot of goals in the back of the net. I am expecting a 3-0 or 4-1 result here so this is a really good bet in my opinion.
Overall though, I think that this game is simply going to be about these bets. There is no real interest as an observer here since Aston Villa have shown that they are a terrible side. The home side will love their team winning but they are the only ones who will watch since this is going to be a bad game as far as the neutral viewer is concerned.
