Swansea vs Stoke betting tips and predictions ahead of this Premier League game, kicking off at 3pm on Saturday 22nd April 2017. Read our betting preview below.
Swansea’s dip in form has seen them dragged in to the bottom three, with just five games remaining. Hull are the only side who the Swans can catch, and they’ve been in excellent form in 2017. Can Paul Clement lead his side to a much-needed victory against poor travellers Stoke?
This game is the first of three home matches for Swansea in the run in, they’ll be expected to claim nine points from those remaining games. The hosts can get off to a perfect start this weekend, as Stoke come to the Liberty in awful form. Having won just one of their last six games, the Potters are a side who can be taken advantage of.
Stoke are vulnerable on their travels, averaging just 0.81 points per game. They’ve lost nine of their 16 trips this term, claiming just three away wins. They lack goals on the road, having failed to score in five straight outings. That’s great news for the Swans, who have an awful defensive record. The Welsh side have the talent going forward to get results, so they’ll be confident of seeing off a Stoke outfit which has failed to score in 38% of their away games. Our first Swansea vs Stoke betting tip is for Stoke to fail to score once again, which is an 7/4 shot with Betfred.
Swansea have looked quite good at home of late, despite losing their last match. They lead second placed Tottenham 1-0 in their last outing at the Liberty, before three late goals cost them the points. That ended a four-game unbeaten run at home, which brought them 10 points. Defending against the Potters should be an easier task. We’re backing a home win in our second Swansea vs Stoke prediction, which is priced at 5/4 with Bet Victor.
Jack Butland is nearing a return for Stoke, but they have no need to rush him back. Swansea have Tom Carroll and Jordan Ayew pushing to get back after being dropped last week. Paul Clement has to do something to fix his side’s current poor form.
Swansea have won four of their last six at home to Stoke. However, their last victory against the Potters came back in 2015.
Stoke are quite tough to break down, they’ve conceded two or more in just six of their 16 away trips. Meanwhile, 60% of Swansea’s home victories have been by a single goal. For us, that points to a 1-0 home victory. That’s our final Swansea vs Stoke prediction, which is priced at 7/1 with Bet365.
