Sportingbet Preview: Stoke

Sportingbet, our official betting partner, give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of Saturday's game with Stoke City...

There’s only one way to put a bad result behind you - take out your frustration on your next opponent; and with six straight away defeats for Saturday’s visitors Stoke, 4/6 Spurs have the perfect opportunity to right the ship.

Stoke are an 18/5 shot to win at the Lane, but having failed to score in each of their last five road trips, the confidence should surely lie with the hosts. The draw can be had at 5/2.

Without a goal in over 400 minutes of football, could Tottenham Hotspurs’ barren run come to an end this weekend? You can get 19/20 on the match to feature Over 2.5 Goals, while Harry’s men are 3/1 to notch three themselves.

The drought has been typified by the usually prolific Jermain Defoe, and the little hitman is 5/1 to put his struggles behind him and grab the opener on Saturday, while Niko Kranjcar (11/5 any time goal) or Roman Pavlyuchenko (66/1 first goal in 3-1 win) could be the men to step up and inspire the Lilywhites.

The weekend is packed with sporting action from the US Masters golf to the Malaysia Grand Prix, and as ever the Sportingbet Podcast is the place to find our best tips, as well as the chance to win a £100 Free Bet playing Five for a Ton.

Wondering who to back in the Grand National this weekend? We’ve got a full preview of the world’s most famous horse race with expert Sean Butler on the podcast, while former National-winning jockey Mick Fitzgerald and ‘wise man of betting’ Russ Wiseman join Chris Graham in our video previews.

Check out the Sportingbet Grand National microsite for all the information on our race specials and promos, including our promise to pay ¼ odds on each way bets if your horse finishes in the top five. Good luck!

Odds correct at time of writing.
