Stoke v Leicester: 2-1 Potters win among 3 best bets
Fresh from their shock victory over Manchester City last time out Stoke go into this weekend’s Leicester clash as firm favourites.
Mark Hughes’ men are priced at 21/20 to takes all three points when the Foxes visit the Britannia Stadium, with the visitors billed as 3/1 underdogs and the draw available at 23/10.
Two of the last three meetings have ended all square but with those draws coming in the 2007-08 season, last year’s FA Cup result is a better indication of what to expect.
Here Ladbrokes News’ James Curtis highlights three great value bets ahead of the 3pm Saturday kick-off.
Some people – myself included – questioned the wisdom of spending £8m on a Championship striker but Ulloa has hit the ground running in the top flight with goals against Arsenal and Everton already.
That record alone makes his 10/3 anytime price tempting but considering the Argentine hit the opening strike seven times last season 8/1 looks too good to ignore.
After beating City last week Stoke look a good price at 21/10 for the win but those looking to boost their returns could be swayed by the 15/2 on a 2-1 victory.
Stoke have conceded against Aston Villa and Hull this season and the Foxes’ goals against Everton and Arsenal prove they remain a goal threat.
Stoke have scored more than two just once in 10 games so while they look primed to win, Ulloa’s threat and this stat make 2-1 a great shout.
Scorecast betting is pretty much a lottery with so many combinations available. However, anyone taking a punt on the above bets would never forgive themselves for passing up the 80/1 odds on offer ob both selections coming good.
A long shot for sure but if Ulloa comes good and Stoke play to form it looks a dead cert – doesn’t it?
