Tottenham v Stoke City Betting Tips: Match Preview
Tottenham lost their visit on Old Trafford with an unfortunate early own goal by Kyle Walker in the 22 minute. However what the team showed us in terms of performance, was quite satisfying and enjoyable to watch. Few crucial misses, have they been goals, the game would have taken a different turn.
Few purchases of new players for now: Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid for 15 million, Kieran Trippier from Burnley for 4.9 million and Kevin Wimmer from FC Koln for 5.8 million. Overall performance record of the Spurs @ 57% with 3 losses and 4 victories in the last 7 games.
Overall record against Stoke City, W7-D2-L6, winning 3 and losing 2 of the last 5 games, losing both most recent matches. The loss here last season, started with 2 early goals from Stoke, in the 6th and 33rd minute, from which Tottenham did not manage to recover, but only net one in the 77th.
Considering Tottenham’s ambitions to reach perhaps Top 4 this season, and the loss of 3 points already, we believe the Spurs will push here for the victory at all cost. While it’s still early in the season, it’s crucial to gather full points against mid-table teams. The odds for Tottenham to win this match are @ 1.72, while a risky Asian Handicap Tottenham -1.5 is priced @ 3.00
Considering the 2 most recent victories with 1-0 and 2-1, we wouldn’t push for this bet but it’s a rewarding option.
Stoke City also has lost their first match of the season, a home game against Liverpool with 0-1. Four minutes is what separated the team from getting the 1 point, as Liverpool victory goal came in the 86th minute. Definitely something Stoke can be upset about and can work on. The team’s performance record currently is as low as 29% with just 2 victories and 5 losses in the last 7 games.
New names in the team so far are: Sergio Molina from Real Madrid for an undisclosed price, Ibrahim Afellay from Barcelona as a free agent, Xherdan Shaqiri from Inter Milan for 17 million, Shay Given from Aston Villa as a free agent, Glen Johnson from Liverpool as a free agent, Marco van Ginkel from Chelsea on a loan, Moha El Ouriachi from Barcelona for an undisclosed price and Joselu from Hannover for 8 million.
Some well known names in Stoke City, especiall Afellay who was once Europe’s brightest prospect. His career however did not progress as one would have hoped, but hopefully he’d find the right path in Stoke.
Stoke City has a record of W6-D2-L7 against Tottenham, but did win both games last season, including the one here with 2-1. Last season’s first goalscorer Bojan Krkic is priced to score in this match @ 4.33 anytime, while new transfer Afellay @ 6.50.
The draw here has odds of 3.60, while the away victory comes a bit short @ 4.75 with bet365.com
Overall, this game might have been a bit of a mystery have Tottenham won the fist game. However with the defeat, loss of 3 point and the ambitions to play in Champions League next season, defeat or point loss against mid-table teams isn’t an option.
