Manchester City vs Stoke City Betting Tips and Predictions

Manchester City take on Stoke City during the weekend in a game that promises to offer some unique opportunities to make money.


Betting on City to take a win may not be the best idea, as the blues are priced very short owing to their record against Stoke City and the lower ranked team having an extremely poor record against City in recent times. Stoke City have also been disappointing in recent games with only two wins in the last five matches. As a result, it will not be surprising to see odds of 1.25 for a win.

City have had a disappointing home record this season with the team drawing 4 games and losing one at Etihad stadium. However, their home form has improved substantially with four wins in the last five games. The team’s last defeat at home was against Chelsea back at the start of December.

The recent run of form coupled with the motivation to close the gap at the top of the table down to 8 points are overwhelming points in favour of City. Hence, it is advisable to look at other markets in order to find value. A lot of speculation around the future of Sergio Aguero has been going around. Yet, the Argentine forward has scored five goals in his last three games. With Gabriel Jesus still unavailable due to a groin injury, Aguero is expected to start, so it might be worth taking up the Go wild promo code offer on him to score first – you can get double the odds.

Back in the Argentine forward to score anytime may yield decent results, but the brave can opt for Aguero scoring two or more goals in the game at an incredible 3.54. Considering that Aguero has been averaging close to two goals per game, it is not beyond the possibility – especially with the game at Etihad stadium. The probability of a draw also sounds extremely tempting at 7.20.
