Stoke vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Preview

Stoke vs Blackburn Rovers

Stoke have been unusually poor defensively this season. The Britannia Stadium has been a fortress since they were promoted to the Premier League. Their poor run of form could be attributed to their European adventures. They’ve failed to win a single game this season after playing midweek in the Europa Cup. But they haven’t had that this week. They face a Blakburn side who are awful, sitting second bottom in the league. Despite the bashing they receive from football fans, they’ve scored 9 in 12 of their games this season. The problem is they haven’t kept a clean sheet all season.

  • Both teams to score is 1.67

But I think Stoke will win this. Rovers’ rock in defence Samba is expected to miss this game making them even more likely to concede goals.

  • Stoke to win is 1.80
Yakubu has found the back of the net recently, scoring five in his last six games
  • Stoke to win over 2.5 goals is 2.70
