Stoke vs Bournemouth Predictions
Even though they are undefeated for five games in a row and conceded just one goal in those games, fans are not happy with Stoke’s recent results. Potters are aiming for a spot in the playoffs, and they are not far away from being in such position, but squad fails to beat lower placed opponents.

Match Preview & Team News
How are they going to perform against direct promotion candidates AFC Bournemouth on Saturday night? Visitors are looking to mend their wounds after losing the derby match to Brentford FC on Wednesday night. That loss had a big impact on the standings, leaving them six points behind the table leaders Norwich City. All in all, we should see an interesting duel. Read on our Championship betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Stoke City are entering this match from 7th place with 35 points, just two behind other playoff zone squads like Reading and Watford. If stats were slightly better at this venue (currently at five wins, three draws and three losses), Potters could even fight for top two places. Squad is led by experienced head manager Martin O’Neill. He was the one who pushed youngster Tyrese Campbell throughout season. Striker returned the favour with six goals so far. Still, the key player is in the midfield – Nick Powell. One strange thing is that Sam Vokes still hasn’t scored one single goal this season.
As for their opposition, Bournemouth are 4th and will definitely need a win here to stay in touch with the leading duo. A big number of games, six to be precise, for Cherries on the road ended without winner. Their strikers have been extremely efficient, bagging 36 goals in 21 games.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
This is a clash between the best offense in the league and a squad which has impressive stats in the back lately. 2 or 3 goals total is going to be our selection.
Abovementioned loss to Brentford was first for Cherries in the last six divisional games. They don’t seem ready to take all three points from Potters. Home win or draw is going to be our tip at 7/10 odds and should be backed with high stake.
