What Trueform says for Swansea vs Stoke
Swansea must beat Stoke to have any chance of staying in the Premier League, but our Trueform ratings suggest they are simply not playing well enough to achieve that feat.
The Potters may already be relegated, but Paul Lambert’s side have shown plenty of spirit during the closing stages of the campaign.
We feel the visitors will still be up for this and reckon they are value at Evens to avoid defeat in our Swansea vs Stoke betting predictions.
A Look At Swansea City’s Betting Odds
Swansea have gone eight league games without a win after suffering a fourth straight defeat when losing 1-0 at home to fellow strugglers Southampton on Tuesday.
Manolo Gabbiadini’s 72nd-minute strike left the Welsh outfit relying on other results to go their way, even if they do prevail here.
“It’s horrible not to depend on ourselves,” said Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal. “Let’s see what will happen.
“If we still believe then we can stay up, we must do our part on the weekend and win the game. After that, we can hope that a kind of miracle can happen.”
However, the hosts have only scored in two of their last nine matches in all competitions and all they could do was huff and puff with little penetration in midweek.
A Look At Stoke City’s Betting Odds
There are obvious concerns regarding how Stoke will react to being relegated over the weekend following a 2-1 home defeat against Crystal Palace.
Xherdan Shaqiri gave the Potters hope of staying in the survival race when opening the scoring just before half-time, but the in-form Eagles came on strong in the second period.
However, Stoke will still be keen to avoid finishing bottom of the table, while Lambert is determined to retain his position as manager.
“I’d love to,” said the Scot, who guided Norwich to promotion from the Championship in 2010-11. “I think it’s a brilliant club.
“It’s got an incredibly strong infrastructure and great ownership, and they’ll bounce back.
“It’s incredibly tough, but this club’s in a really good position to rebuild properly.”
Three straight draws with West Ham, Burnley and Liverpool prior to the Palace loss showed the ability is there if Stoke can stay focused.
We’re adding 29/2 for a 2-1 away win to our Swansea vs Stoke betting tips.
