Tip Reasoning

  • Coventry lost their last three home league games and are winless in four.
  • Stoke are unbeaten in five of their seven away league games as pre-match outsiders.
  • Stoke are unbeaten in each of their last five league trips to Coventry.

Sky Blues play-off dreams waning by the week

After squaring things up at 1-1 with QPR last time out, Coventry suffered another major blow with an 88th-minute winner for the visitors. That result means that Coventry are now winless in seven of their last eight league games, a run which has seen them drop from 5th down to 10th.

Compounding matters for the hosts is the fact that they failed to beat Stoke in each of the last five home league H2Hs, albeit drawing three. Moreover, Coventry have lost only four times in home league action this term, though three of those defeats have all came consecutively ahead of this.

Stoking the fire for a late play-off push

Stoke City have been a bookmakers dream this season, surely busting a few coupons as they avoided defeat in 71% of their away league games as pre-match outsiders (W4, D1, L2), a tag they look set to wear yet again.

The visitors only lost narrowly against a rampant Fulham last time out, but will be buoyed by their return of four wins without reply across their last five away league games.

Overall, I think the value lies with Stoke in this clash. The generous price on an away win gives us the ability to maintain value by backing them in the ‘draw no bet’ market, thus providing a safety net for the selection.
