Stoke City will be in action this week as the Britanica will see the Magpies visit. This is a game between two teams that I thought would be evenly matched at the start of the season but now I can see that they are worlds apart. It will be interesting to see how Stoke handle the pressure of expectation here but I think that this might be quite a one sided contest.
Stoke are a team on a mission and they have proven time and time again that they can beat any team. This team has beaten the likes of Manchester United and they will be feeling great about themselves as they head into this game. This team is pretty solid at the back and going forward they have a ton of options which makes them very dangerous. Furthermore, they will be backed by their home crowd this weekend so I think that they will win quite easily.
Newcastle will know how hard of a game this will be for them and honestly I don’t see them producing much of a fight. This team had talent in the likes of Cisse but it is too little against a side like Stoke. The fans are used to what is happening to this club and although they are not guaranteed for relegation, they are very likely.
So in summary, Stoke City are going to win this game. We are getting a pretty good price on the home team at 2.00 which I think is value although it is quite a short price. I know that a lot of people are not going to like this bet for the price but we win more than 1 in 2 times so is it not value? Anyway, if that bet doesn’t work for you, the over 2.5 goals is also a good option since the defenses in this game are not great.
