What Trueform says for Man City vs Stoke
Our Trueform ratings reflect just how strong Manchester City have been this season and it is hard to see Stoke halting their relentless progress.
The visitors did enjoy a steep rise as a result of beating Southampton last time out, but that mark remains below all five of their hosts’ wins displayed.
The Potters will take heart from a goalless draw here in March, but the Blues will be tough to contain in their current mood.
We’re going for a 3-0 home win at 6/1 in our Man City vs Stoke betting predictions.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
Manchester City may have caught Chelsea at a good time, three days after Antonio Conte’s side had claimed a hard-fought victory at Atletico Madrid, but that was still a dominant display.
Kevin De Bruyne’s 67th-minute strike was all that split the two sides on the scoresheet at Stamford Bridge, but City’s triumph was far more convincing than the bare result suggests.
“We knew coming in it would be our toughest game yet this season, but we had a game plan and we stuck to it,” said Fabian Delph.
“It sends out a massive message. We needed to come out on top and there’s a massive togetherness in the team. The plan was to stop them on the counter and we did the job down to a tee, so it’s happy days.”
City’s awesome array of attacking talent rightly gets most of the plaudits, but improvement all over the pitch has resulted in five clean sheets from seven Premier League matches.
That makes 91/100 for a home win to nil an easy pick for our Man City vs Stoke betting tips.
A Look At Stoke City’s Betting Odds
Stoke ended a run of five games without a win when edging out Southampton on home turf, with evergreen veteran Peter Crouch putting his team ahead in the 85th minute.
“Crouch wants to play more games and wants more starts but as a sub he gives the opposition something more to deal with,” said Mark Hughes.
The Potters are always capable of upsetting the odds but their away form this term has been moderate, losing at Everton and Newcastle either side of a draw at West Brom.
Stoke seem to be running out of steam around the hour mark and have conceded between 60:01 and 75:00 minutes four times in nine games.
Looking at the Man City vs Stoke odds, it is 6/5 for that to happen again here.
