Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over the likes of Middlesbrough and Sunderland, Bournemouth head into Saturday’s football match against Stoke City. The Cherries climbed to the top half of the table and they will be looking to retain their spot in top ten with a win over Stoke City at their Vitality Stadium. Eddie Howe’s troops have been in a fine form of late and we predict that they will pick up all three points from the Stoke City game. The Potters failed to score in previous two league fixtures and it is more than obvious that they struggle in front of goal. Mark Hughes’ men are not regarded as good travelers and considering that they failed to find the net in previous six matches on the road, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts in this one. A man to watch in the away team will be Joshua King, who has been in a fine form of late.
