Stoke Premier League 2012/13 Betting PreviewEnglish Premier League, Football Betting Tips
The Potters last season enjoyed their worst Premier League campaign since being promoted and could it be a coincidence that as Rory Delap’s skills wane and he features less Stoke have slipped down the table?
Or was it more that a thin squad could not cope with the rigours of the Europa League?
Whatever the reason Stoke’s 14th place finish has swollen their odds for the coming season.
Defender Geoff Cameron has been added to the defence for just over £2m from the MLS and Michael Kightly has joined from Wolves for £3.5m. But it has been a quiet summer at the Britannia Stadium in comparison to transfer window’s past.
You can rely on…
Stoke to score, with the Potters finding the net in 26 matches last season.
Where should your money go?
Toni Pulis’ side look a great bet to match or better last year’s points tally of 45 at odds of 5/6. Stoke don’t have the distraction of European football this season and their squad still possesses real quality in the form of Peter Crouch (pictured) and Matthew Etherington.
Although it’s likely to be crowded on page one of the league table the 7/4 for the Potters to finish in the top ten is also tempting.
Did you know…
Stoke, formed in 1863, are the oldest club in the Premier League.
