Stoke v Sheffield United Prediction & Betting Tips, 5th May 2019

Championship Betting

Stoke v Sheffield United Championship Preview, 5th May 12.30pm

Stoke are settled in a bottom half of the table result for the season. There hasn’t been much to get their fans excited really with them having drawn almost half of all their league games this season. Sheffield United have to go and get a win there on the weekend to potentially pip Norwich to the league title. Read our Stoke v Sheffield United betting tips for more.

Stoke v Sheffield United Betting Odds*

Sheffield United 6/5
Stoke 5/2
Draw 5/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 3rd, 2019 at 4:54 p.m.)


Stoke News and Form

With little surprise, Stoke drew their last game, a 0-0 affair at Millwall. That was their third draw in their last four games (L1). Stoke have managed just the two league wins in their last fourteen played. They have drawn ten of those fourteen games, which is pretty ridiculous. Six of the ten drawn games in that sequence were 0-0 results. It has left the Potters with a W8 D8 L6 home record this season. So they are a tough side to beat. Stoke have scored 24 goals at home this season, conceding 22.

Just 32% of Stoke’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Only 36% of their home games has seen both teams score in. Stoke are currently on a four-match sequence of home draws and they are W1 D5 in their last six home fixtures. The Potters have opened the scoring in exactly half of their home fixture. Seven times one of their home games have been 0-0 at halftime and another seven have seen Stoke 1-0 up at the break. It’s just pretty average wherever you look for them. Except in goal scoring output. Only the related Ipswich and Bolton have scored fewer than they have done.

Both teams have scored in just three of the last eight meetings

Four of the last six between them at Stoke have ended in a draw

Sheffield United News and Form

The Blades are on a three-match winning streak at the moment and they are undefeated in their last six (W4 D2). It has been a really strong finish to the season for them and they do have a shot at top spot. In order to do that they have to win this game and hope that Norwich lose. The Blades have taken a W11 D6 L5 record on their travels this season and they are currently without defeat in their last eight league games away from Bramall Lane

This season on their travels the Blades have scored an average of 1.5 goals per away game. They have conceded at an average of a goal per away game, but have taken a clean sheet in 41% of all their road games. Six of their eleven away successes have been by a one-goal margin only. Sheffield United have scored in each of their last ten league games and they have been levelled at the halftime break in 11 of their 22 road games. Only leaders Norwich have a better away record than the Blades have this season, but no-one has bettered the defensive output of the Blades this season in the Championship.

Stoke v Sheffield United Tips & Odds

Sheffield United to win to nil at 11/4
Sheffield United to win by a one-goal margin at 11/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 3rd, 2019 at 4:54 p.m.)

Who will win – Stoke v Sheffield United Predictions

Sheffield United have the power to finish the season on a high note, whether or not it gets them the league title is another thing. They should be able to go and edge their way post a Stoke side who are tough to break down but offer little going forward. Away win.

Millwall v Stoke Prediction & Betting Tips, 27th April 2019

Championship Betting

Millwall v Stoke Championship Preview, 27th April 1.30pm

Millwall could get themselves safe this weekend. Three points would guarantee that. So they have to pull out the stops in this one and they may have a chance to do it against Stoke. The Potters have struggled badly for wins recently. Can the Lions get what they need to keep themselves afloat? Read our Millwall v Stoke betting tips for more.

Millwall v Stoke Betting Odds*

Millwall 23/20
Draw 5/2
Stoke 13/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 26th, 2019 at 6:58 p.m.)


Millwall News and Form

The tension is going to be high at the Den on Saturday. Millwall suffered a 1-0 defeat out at Aston Villa last weekend. That is a four-match sequence without a win for them now (D3 L1). They head into the weekend three points clear of the drop zone but do still have a game in hand over Rotherham, who are the only ones who can sink the Lions into the drop zone. Millwall do have a far superior goal difference over Rotherham, so as long as they match whatever the Millers do on the weekend, the Lions will be safe.

The home form of Millwall is W7 D8 L6 this season and they are undefeated in their last three at the Den, winning one of those. In total, they have earned a clean sheet in 33% of their home games this season and five of their seven home victories have been by a one-goal margin. The Lions have averaged 1.2 goals per home game. They have been sat level at the halftime break in 10 home fixtures. Each of their last three home games have gone under 2.5 goals. Only the bottom two of Bolton and Ipswich have worse home records than the Lions have this season in the Championship.

Millwall v Stoke Head to Head

Stoke took a 1-0 home win over Millwall earlier this season
Stoke have won their last six in a row against the Lions
Millwall are winless in eight against Stoke
Both teams have scored in just one of the last eight meetings

Stoke News and Form

Stoke have nothing at stake but they have found wins so hard to come by since the turn of the new year. They have won only two league games in 2019. However, the Potters have drawn nine of their last thirteen league games. They don’t have great form on their travels at the moment, losing their last two away games at Norwich and Middlesbrough. Stoke have only won just the three away games all season in the division (D12 L7). But there again, they have been involved in a lot of drawn fixtures.

Stoke have drawn all six of their away games this season against sides currently sitting 18th or lower in the table and four of those were 0-0 draws. In total, the Potters have averaged under a goal per game on their travels, with only 41% of the road fixtures going over 2.5 goals. They have earned a clean sheet in just over a third of their away games. They don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last four league games, home and away though. Stoke have managed to open the scoring in just six away games this season in the Championship.

Millwall v Stoke Tips & Odds

Under 2.5 goals at 4/6
Millwall to win outright at 23/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 26th, 2019 at 6:58 p.m.)

Who will win – Millwall v Stoke Predictions

There’s a good chance for Millwall to put an important three points on the board. Stoke are not a major threat, and they have nothing to play for. Millwall are still fighting for survival so that could lead towards a home success. Millwall to win.

Championship Betting

Stoke v Norwich Championship Preview, 22nd April 3.00pm

Stoke have nothing at stake in this one. They have done enough to avoid regulation worries this season and they are going to have their work cut out for a top half of the table finish. Can they take points off the promotion-bound Canaries though? Read our Stoke v Norwich betting tips for more.

Stoke v Norwich Betting Odds*

Norwich 6/5
Stoke 2/1
Draw 11/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from Paddy Power on April 16th, 2019 at 10:19 p.m.)

Stoke News and Form

The Potters have drawn their last four home games in the Championship and five of their last six on home soil (W1). So there hasn’t been too much to cheer about for their home fans. But then it is at least a good unbeaten streak of home form that they have put together. In their last home game though they only managed a 2-2 draw against the relegation-threatened Rotherham.

Stoke have barely averaged over a goal per home game this season and just 29% of their home fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. The Potters have picked up a clean sheet in 43% of their home games this term, conceding at under a goal per game on average. Their overall home record for the Championship season stands at W8 D7 L6. Stoke have conceded 60% of their home goals in the second period of games.

Stoke v Norwich Head to Head

Stoke were 1-0 winners at Carrow Road in October
The Potters have won the last two meetings with Norwich
The Canaries are winless in four against Stoke
Stoke have lost just one of their last nine home games against Norwich

Norwich News and Form

The Canaries could only manage what for them, will have been a disappointing away draw at Wigan in their last away game. That did extend their unbeaten road form to five though, winning each of the other four in that sequence. Norwich’s overall away record for the season is at W11 D8 L2. In their road games, this season the Canaries have averaged 1.8 goals per game.

They have been tight at the back conceding at under a goal per game on average. Norwich have tallied up a clean sheet in 29% of their away games. The Canaries have netted in each of their last 11 away games and they have scored 66% of their road goals in the second period of fixtures. They have been level at the halftime break 11 times this season on the road. They do currently boast the best away record in the division.

Who will win – Stoke v Norwich Predictions

Stoke have been pretty flat this season and Norwich have just been flying their way back up to the Premier League. The visitors will be enjoying themselves more than the home side in this one more likely than not. Away win at 6/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from Paddy Power on April 16th, 2019 at 10:19 p.m.)

Middlesbrough v Stoke Championship Preview, 19th April 3.00pm

Boro have managed to recover from a major slump with back to back wins. So they are still in touch with the play-off places but have to keep up their momentum now in a tight scrap. They welcome Stoke to the Riverside who have not done a tremendous amount of winning recently. Read our Middlesbrough v Stoke betting tips for more.

Middlesbrough 17/20
Draw 23/10
Stoke 7/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on April 16th, 2019 at 4:58 p.m.)


Middlesbrough News and Form

Boro have won their last two games in the league, both with a clean sheet. Before that, they were on a six-match losing streak of form. They took a win at home over Hull on the weekend, which was a very good result. They are W8 D6 L7 at the Riverside this season which isn’t great. They have lost four of their last five played (W1) on home soil. Middlesbrough average under a goal per game on home soil this season.

Just 19% of Middlesbrough’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Each of their last three at the Riverside have gone under the goal line. They have taken a clean sheet in 48% of their league home fixtures. In total, they have averaged just 0.76 goals against them at home this season. Just one of their eight home wins this term have been by a margin of more than two goals. Boro have scored 65% of their home goals in the first period of fixtures this season.

Middlesbrough v Stoke Head to Head

There was a 0-0 draw when the two met in November
Stoke are unbeaten in four against Boro now (W2 D2)
Boro though are W2 D1 L1 in their last four at home against the Potters
Each of the last four meetings have gone under 2.5 goals

Stoke News and Form

Stoke earned a 2-2 draw at home against the relegation-threatened Rotherham on the weekend. That was their fifth draw in their last seven played (W1 L1). So it’s all very average from the Potters really. They have only managed three away wins all season in the Championship, part of an overall W3 D12 L6 record. Stoke have averaged under a goal per away game so this looks as if it’s going to be a low scoring duel at the Riverside.

Only 43% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals, with Stoke taking a clean sheet in 38% of their away games. Stoke lost their last away game, which was at Swansea but they were undefeated in five before that. Again, there were plenty of drawn fixtures in that sequence, four of the five ended in a draw. Actually, four of Stoke’s last seven league games, home and away, have ended in a 0-0 draw. Five of their six away defeats have been by a two-goal margin.

Boro eased some pretty at home with a good win over Hull last weekend. It was only a tight win though and they still don’t look particularly confident. Stoke are very tight in defence and may have enough to grind out a point. Draw.

Derby v Stoke Championship Preview, 13th March 7.45pm

Derby have some pretty unsteady form behind them at the moment, but they have still managed to cling onto a top six place. But that is a bit tenuous and they are going to have to raise their game considerably to stay there. Stoke will turn up being unbeaten in five. Read our Derby v Stoke betting tips for more.

Derby 29/20
Draw 9/4
Stoke 11/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 12th, 2019 at 3:35 p.m.)


Derby News and Form

Derby were held at home in a 1-1 draw by Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend. That leaves the Rams with only the one win in their last six league outings (D2 L3). So they aren’t on song at the moment at all. That result on the weekend leaves them at W9 D6 L3 for the season. Their home form hasn’t been bad with three wins in their last four at Pride Park (L1) and in all of their home wins this season in the Championship, Derby have scored at least two goals. Dery have just one clean sheet in six home games.

Home and away, the Rams have not taken a clean sheet in their last six played. So their defence has been letting them down a bit. In total Derby have taken a clean sheet in 28% of their home games this season, with both teams having scored at 61% of their home fixtures. None of their nine home win this season have been by a margin of more than two goals. The Rams have only been trailing at half time three times at home this term, conceding 61% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures.

Derby v Stoke Head to Head

Stoke claimed a 2-1 home success over Derby earlier this season
Stoke have won three of the last four meetings in all competition (L1)
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five meetings
Derby have lost their last two at home against Stoke by a 2-0 scoreline

Stoke News and Form

Stoke earned a point away at QPR on the weekend. That was their fourth draw in their last five games (W1). So they are proving hard to beat at the moment. Their away campaign has been a real bust for them this season with just a W2 D11 L5 record having been posted. Their last away victory was record back towards the end of October. They are on a ten-match undefeated streak of form since then on their travels. Each of their last four away games have ended up under 2.5 goals. Each of their last eight games, home and away have gone under the goal line.

Stoke have averaged under a goal per game on their travels this season. The Potters have two clean sheets in their last three away games (both 0-0 scorelines) but they have scored just one goal in their last four away from home. Stoke have taken a clean sheet in a total of one-third of their away games. Four of Stoke’s five away defeats this season have been by a two-goal margin. The Potters have only opened the scoring in five of their 18 road fixtures so far this season. They have the sixth-best defensive record in the second tier currently.

Stoke v West Brom Championship Preview, 9th February 5.30pm

Stoke will be looking to knock their rivals West Brom down a peg as they play host to the Baggies on Saturday evening. Stoke’s season hasn’t quite lived up to expectation, whereas West Brom are on a big promotion push. Read our Stoke v West Brom betting tips for more.

Stoke 31/20
West Brom 2/1
Draw 23/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 8th, 2019 at 2:33 p.m.)


Stoke News and Form

Stoke are really going through a rough patch of form lately as they have lost five of their last seven (W1 D1). That has seen them lodge themselves firmly in the bottom half of the table. This massive collapse has been after they were unbeaten in ten games in the second tier. So it has gone downhill quickly. Stoke are W7 D3 L5 at home this season in the Championship now. They have lost two for their last three at home, both of those were 2-0 reverses against Bristol City then Preston.

Stoke have actually failed to score in five of their last seven league outings, so there’s a clear problem there. Only five teams have scored fewer league goals than they have managed this season. Four of their last five league losses have been by a 2-0 scoreline. Just 33% of Stoke’s home games this season have gone above 2.5 goals. Stoke have opened the scoring in eight of their fifteen home games.

Stoke v West Brom Head to Head

There was a 2-1 home win for West Brom over Stoke earlier this season
West Brom are W2 D2 L1 in their last five against the Potters
Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six clashes
Stoke are unbeaten in two on home soil against Albion (W1 D1)

West Brom News and Form

The Baggies haven’t quite been at their best lately eight though. They lost a top clash against Middlesbrough last weekend, going down 2-3 at home against Boro. That leaves the Baggies with only the one win in their last five (D2 L2) so there have been vulnerabilities creeping in. However, if you break it down and look at their away form, they have won three of their last four out on the road (L1). Overall this season the Baggies are W7 D3 L4 on their travels.

West Brom have averaged 1.7 goals per away games, but have only taken the two clean sheets away from home. Those have both been in their last three road fixtures. West Brom have scored in each of their last thirteen league outings (home and away combined) and they are still the top-scoring side in the division. Albion have been level at the break in 8 of their 14 away games and they boast the fourth-best away record of all Championship sides.

Stoke v West Brom Tips & Odds

West Brom 2-0 correct score at 12/1
Under 2.5 goals at 8/11
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 8th, 2019 at 2:33 p.m.)

Who will win – Stoke v West Brom Predictions

Stoke just haven’t been scoring and they have fallen badly out of form. It hasn’t been the greatest spell from West Brom, but they may be able to go and collect a valuable three points against their rivals. West Brom to win and under 2.5 goals looks a solid proposition.

Stoke v Shrewsbury Prediction & Betting Tips, 15th January 2019

Stoke v Shrewsbury FA Cup Preview, 15th January 8.00pm

Stoke got at it again against Shrewsbury in this battle for a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The two of them played out a 1-1 draw at the first attempt with Peter Crouch rescuing the Potters at the New Meadow. Will Championship side Stoke now covert on home soil? The winner hosts Premier League side Wolves in the next round. Read our Stoke v Shrewsbury betting tips for more.

Stoke v Shrewsbury Betting Odds*

Stoke 4/9
Draw 10/3
Shrewsbury 6/1
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 13th, 2019 at 4:47 p.m.)


Stoke News and Form

The Potters have not been in the greatest of form and they are currently on a five-match winless streak in all competitions. That includes the 1-1 draw which they played out at New Meadow against the Shrews in this third round tie. Peter Crouch got their equaliser twelve minutes from time. Will home advantage now see them drive forward to the next round?

Stoke lost their last home game, a league fixture against Bristol City right at the start of the year. But they had been on a three-match winning streak before that on home soil. The loss against Bristol City accidentally snapped a five-match sequence of unbeaten home form which they had been on. Stoke have banked two clean sheets in their last three home games. This will be their first home game against the Shrews since a 2010 League Cup meeting which the Potters won 2-1.

Shrewsbury News and Form

League One side Shrewsbury are searching for form really. They have failed to win any of their last five games and in their last eight, they have won just once. In none of their six have they managed more than one goal in a game. They have not had the greatest of seasons away from home and it does look as if it is one of those ties where they underdog missed their chance at home at the first attempt. The Shrews have won just two away games all season and have lost three of their last four (D1). The problem for them really has been keeping the ball out of the back of the net. The Shrews have not collected a clean sheet in any of their last nine out on their travels. It looks as if it could be an uphill struggle for them to pull themselves through to the fourth round.

Stoke v Shrewsbury Tips & Odds

Stoke to win by a one-goal margin at 12/5

Championship Tips & Odds – 1st January 2019

The teams will get a break next weekend with the third round of the FA Cup swinging into action. So this is going to be an important push for three points for the teams on Tuesday. It will be a great way to start the new year with three points in the bag. Over the weekend the top two of Leeds and Norwich both lost.

Will they get back to winning ways? Will West Brom be able to muscle their way into the top-two? Down at the other end, Ipswich are now seven points adrift of safety after yet another defeat.

Here are our Championship Predictions and Tips for January 1st, 2019 and these are all 3.00 pm kickoffs.

Aston Villa v QPR

Villa drew for the third time in five matches as they had to settle for a point out at Preston on the weekend. The Villains have lost only one of their last ten games now but they haven’t managed a win in any of their last three on home soil (D2 L1). Their defence keeps failing them time and time again. QPR are having a surprisingly good season and are unbeaten in four (W3 D1) after taking a point at Reading on the weekend. Their away form hasn’t been great but a win at Notts Forest in their last road game shows what they are capable off.

QPR are more than good enough to get a point at Villa Park. Rangers haven’t conceded in their last three and while they aren’t a high-scoringside, they can frustrate the hosts. The draw is at 14/5 odds* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm)

Hull v Bolton

The Tigers stepped up to the plate on the weekend as they sprung a surprise win out at league leaders Leeds. It was a solid 2-0 victory as well for the Tigers. That improved their current form to W5 D2 in their last seven and it was their fourth win on the bounce. They fired themselves up to mid-table safety on the weekend. They take on Bolton who can’t shake off the attention of the drop zone right beneath them. The Trotters were held to 0-0 draw at home against Stoke and are winless in ten on the road, losing their last three.

The Tigers are flowing with confidence at the moment and Hull to win to nil at 7/5 is a great looking option* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm). Bolton aren’t a threat in front of goal.

Ipswich v Millwall

The Tractor Boys just can’t winning momentum going to help them get away from the foot of the table. They are five points behind Reading who are second from bottom now. Ipswich go at home in midweek against Millwall who are just above the drop zone after having picked up back to back wins. That’s the kind of thing Ipswich can only dream of at the moment. Millwall got themselves a fantastic three points at home against Nottingham Forest on the weekend. Their back to back wins have been at home though and the Lions have lost their last two away games and are searching for their first away success of the season.

If Millwall are ever going to break that winless duck away from home this season, it has to be in this one. They have form behind them and the simple option here is backing the away win at 13/10 odds* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm)

Stoke v Bristol City

This is a mid-table clash between the two sides who are sat level on 35 points each after 25 games of the season down. The Potters could only manage a 0-0 draw out at the struggling Bolton over the weekend. They are carrying a big home form though having won their last two on home soil to nil. They were wins against Ipswich and Millwall who are both in the bottom five though. They’ll get a tougher challenge from Bristol City. The Robins are undefeated in seven games now after edging Rotherham on the weekend. They don’t score a lot, but they score frequently.

The Robins may have enough about them to go and get a win. They did recently win at Birmingham who are up in seventh place. This just has a draw written all over it through. The outright draw is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm)

Wigan v Sheffield United

The Latics have slipped back lately and they need that great home form to resurface again. After such a great season on home soil where they lost just one of their opening ten home games, they have lost back to back fixtures there. It was that home form keeping them afloat too because it’s been rough on the road for them. Can the Latics rediscover their winning touch? It’s going to be tough with Sheffield United coming to town. The Blades are up into fourth after having posted back to back wins over Blackburn and Derby in the last weekend. They scored exactly three goals in both of those as well. With a four math u run going away from home, they could extend their winning streak.

The Blades look the more likely of the two to get the job done. It’s been good stuff from them over the last weekend and Wigan have a big slump to try and dig themselves out of. The straightforward away win at 11/10 odds is a good proposition* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm).

Stoke v Middlesbrough Premier League Preview, 3rd November 5.30pm

This should be a good contest as Stoke look to be on the up a little bit. They have definitely started to improve their overall form but are still only holding around mid-table. Middlesbrough head into the weekend in third place in the division but they have won just one of their last four played in the league. Read our Stoke v Middlesbrough betting tips for more.

Stoke v Middlesbrough Betting Odds*

Stoke 27/20
Middlesbrough 2/1
Draw 23/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 31st, 2018 at 6:23 p.m.)


Stoke News and Form

The Potters got three points at Bristol City last weekend which leaves them on a W3 D1 L1 record in their last five league games. They get back to home soil this weekend where their record for the season is W3 D1 L3. The Potters are on a WLWL sequence of form at home in the league and two of their three home wins have been against sides currently sat down in the bottom six in the league. They have both scored and conceded eight goals on home soil this season.

Each of their three home wins for the season (actually ALL of their home wins combined) have come with a clean sheet. So that is a trend and Stoke to win to nil is at 11/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 4:01 pm). It is likely for the outlook that this is going to be a low scoring game as just 29% of Stoke’s home game have gone above 2.5 goals. They have done alright at the back, keeping a clean sheet in 43% of home games. They have actually been leading 1-0 at home time in three of their home games in the Championship. So a Stoke half time win is at 21/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 4:01 pm).

Stoke v Middlesbrough Head to Head

Stoke have won their last two home games against Boro to nil
This will be the first meeting since the 2016/17 Premier League

Stoke are unbeaten in three games against Boro (W2 D1)
Each of the last three meetings have ended under 2.5 goals

Middlesbrough News and Form

Middlesbrough were held to a 1-1 draw against Derby at the Riverside last weekend and that leaves them on a run of three straight games now in league action. They have only suffered the one defeat in their last eight games, producing a W3 D4 L1 record in that sequence. Out on the road for the season they are W3 D3 L1 and they have strung together a three-match undefeated streak of form, posting back to back wins recently. In their last two away games they have scored exactly two goals in each and overall in four of their away fixtures this season. Still, only 29% of their away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals and that is down to their defence.

Middlesbrough have picked up a clean sheet in 43% of their games away from home this term. Of the goals which they have conceded on the road, 60% of them have been after the half time break. You have the shortest priced correct score option of a 1-1 draw at 5/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 4:01 pm) and that is the shortest-priced option available. They are without a goal in their last two visits to Stoke though and both teams NOT to score in the fixture returns a quote of 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 31st, 2018 at 4:01 pm). In eight of their league games this season Middlesbrough have been level at 0-0 at half time.

Who will win – Stoke v Middlesbrough Predictions

There have been more positives from Stoke recently but Middlesbrough are not going to be a pushover for them. Our betting tip is the draw in the match outright because Stoke may have their problems in breaking down a very well-organized Boro defence.

Rotherham v Stoke Championship Preview, 29th September 5.30pm

This will be the first league meeting between Stoke and Rotherham for over a decade. The Millers have been having their struggles this season and have lost four of their last six. The Potters, who were expected to go strongly this season are right there in bottom half of the table level on points with them. Read our Rotherham v Stoke betting tips for more.

Draw 12/5
Rotherham 5/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 26th, 2018 at 11:44 p.m.)


Rotherham News and Form

Rotherham have been having a few problems this season in the Championship and go into this next round of action on a two-match losing streak. They are really struggling to hit the back of the net and have failed to score in three of their last four games (one goal in total). So we are going to take a look under 2.5 goals for our Rotherham v Stoke betting tips which is at 19/20 odds and a nice chunk of value* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 5:28 pm).

On home soil, Rotherham have actually produced a bit of form with a W3 L1 record going and each of those three home wins have been by a 1-0 scoreline. A Rotherham 1-0 correct score is at 10/1 odds* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 5:28 pm) to see that trend extended. They have scored exactly one goal in each of their four home games this term. To their credit, they are three points better off than they were at this stage of the season the last time they were in the Championship (2016/17). Maintaining their unbeaten home form would be a good result here.

Stoke News and Form

It hasn’t quite been the season that was expected from Stoke who have been stuttering along without any consistency. The Potters are only W2 D3 L4 for the season. There has been just the one victory in their four league games (D1 L2). So they aren’t in great shape and it gets even worse when you look at just their away form. They are D2 L2 on their travels in the Championship this term and they have been leaking goals all over the place. Stoke have conceded at least two goals in each of their away games this season.

With that in mind a Rotherham/Draw Double Chance is decent value at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on September 27th, 2018 at 5:28 pm). The Potters have been scoring regularly enough though so do have that going for them with six goals in their four road games this term. 75% of their away games have actually seen at least 2.5 goals. They have been slow starters to matches as well because two-thirds of the goals that Stoke have conceded away from home have happened in the second half of matches. Benik Afobe is their top scorer with four goals, three of those away from home so is worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market.

Rotherham v Stoke Head to Head

Stoke and Rotherham last met back in 2008 in a Carling Cup tie which the Potters won 2-0 at home. The last league meetings were actually in the Championship and the only two previous Championship meetings between them. Rotherham collected four points from the two games.

Who will win – Rotherham v Stoke Predictions

The Millers have done pretty well on home soil but their defence is going to have to be at its best against a Stoke side who are scoring but are still struggling for wins. The draw has the most appeal in the outright market, but that Rotherham/Draw Double Chance does appeal.
