Seeley’s Selections – Stoke v SwanseaStats
Stoke v Swansea
Now that I’ve over hyped the return of the Premier League to non-stop this weekend, lets come down to earth with a big massive BANG.
The “Super Sunday” offering this week should be reported to the trades descriptions act straight away…Stoke v Swansea. Don’t panic though; I’ve unearthed some little beauties with the boys and girls at Boylesports to make this one a little bit more exciting.
Stoke are unbeaten in their last three homes games against the Swans, winning two and drawing one and are 6/4 with Boylesports to win this one. That’s not for me.
This game is screaming one thing at me, “bore draw”.
When Boylesports make the prices this tight, the value is always in the draw. There is nothing wrong with sitting on the fence if you’re backing winners.
When the football odds compilers at Boylesports can’t split two sides like on this occasion, the draw is always the biggest price but probably the most likely.
Why? because nobody backs the stalemate…. get stuck in.
Under three goals looks a good bet to me as well. Stoke have only scored six goals in seven games so far this season, and Swansea average only just over a goal a game away from home so far this campaign. Under 3.5 goals at 4/6 with Boylesports looks a pretty safe bet to me.
I like 1-1 which is available at 7/1 and was also the scoreline when the two met last season.
REMEMBER Boylesports’ “Double Bubble” offer; double odds if your winning first goalscorer bet scores within the first twenty minutes in any Premier League match this weekend!
With goals at a premium, it’s quite a difficult one to find a stand-out candidate but if pushed, Peter Crouch would get my vote at 5/1 and if you think the Swans will open the scoring, in-form Gylfi Sigurdsson will be a very popular choice at 7/1.
Draw @ 23/10
Correct Score 1-1 @ 7/1
Under 3.5 Goals @ 4/6
