Stoke’s price of 37/20 for a win makes them good bets to beat Bolton at the Reebok Stadium this afternoon.
The Potters are not in the best of form having lost their last two Premier League games and three of their last four in all competitions.
However, their opponents are also struggling, particularly at home, making an away victory the best play in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
Bolton have played five home league games so far this season and each has ended in defeat, with just four goals scored and 17 conceded.
As this shows, it is in defence where Bolton are particularly vulnerable, and with 3.4 goals conceded by the Trotters in an average home match the odds of 29/20 on Stoke scoring over 1.5 goals today look good value.
A successful £25 free bet on Stoke to score at least two goals against Bolton would return £61.25, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
Stoke are ideally placed to take advantage of Bolton’s profligacy as they are unlikely to give the Trotters too much joy in front of goal.
Although Tony Pulis’ side have been uncharacteristically charitable in defence in recent games, conceding two to Liverpool and three to Newcastle and Arsenal, it is not long ago that they kept three clean sheets in a row and held Manchester United to a 1-1 draw.
With this in mind, Bolton are likely to struggle to keep on terms with the Potters, meaning their price of 7/5 for the win and odds of 23/10 for the draw hold less appeal.
One other bet to consider is for Stoke to score the last goal of the game at odds of 23/20.
Half of the goals scored by Stoke in the Premier League have come in the final 15 minutes of games, while Bolton’s most productive period comes earlier in the second half.
