Stoke v West Brom betting tips: Baggies seek Potteries hat-trick
Preview and odds for Friday’s Championship clash
West Brom travel to the Potteries for a crunch clash between two promotion hopefuls on Friday night and we have scouted the odds for some Stoke v West Brom betting tips.
Stoke were held to a 1-1 draw at Preston on Tuesday evening while West Brom maintained their fine form with a 4-0 win at Cardiff.
Friday’s match, which takes place at the bet365 Stadium, kicks off at 7.45pm and is live on Sky Sports.
Stoke v West Brom match odds
Stoke maintained their good early-season Championship form with a point at Deepdale on Tuesday and should have taken all three points, such was their superiority.
The Potters had 21 shots on Preston’s goal but just had Nick Powell’s sixth-minute strike to show for their efforts.
That result put Stoke four points behind leaders West Brom after 10 games, but they will need to build upon their five points from a possible 15 on the road if they are to maintain their promotion challenge.
Stoke’s home form has been solid, winning four of their last five and being held to a draw by Barnsley in the other. They defeated Hull 2-0 in their last home game on Saturday and are 2/1 to defeat West Brom.
Unbeaten thus far, Valerien Ismael’s side followed up last Saturday’s 2-1 home win over QPR by demolishing Cardiff 4-0 on Tuesday. Goals from Karlan Grant, a Curtis Nelson own goal, Alex Mowatt and Matt Phillips gave West Brom their first win in the Welsh capital since October 1974.
They have now won six of their 10 games, with four drawn, and are 29/20 to beat Stoke.
Four of their last 18 meetings have ended in stalemate, and it is 23/10 for another draw on Friday in the Stoke v West Brom betting tips.
