Stoke City V Newcastle United (28/11/12)

My Tips For Stoke V The Toon

Every match I give myself 100 points to place a few hypothetical bets on Newcastle and 100 points to place a few general football bets using the odds available from SkyBet.com.  I then compare how the two sets of bets perform and analyse whether it's better to bet with your heart or your head.

My general football tips are on a run of five consecutive profitable weeks and have therefore been outperforming my Newcastle tips in recent weeks.  Here are my Toon tips for our match against Stoke... 

Match Result:
30 points on Draw at 3.5
It's hard to have much confidence at the moment given our current form, but on the positive side Stoke have drawn 7 of their 13 league games this season and we've also recorded 4 draws from our 6 league away games.  Although the bookies make Stoke the odds on favourites, I'm therefore going to go for a 30 point bet on the draw.

First Half Goals:
50 points on 1 First Half Goal at 2.5
5 of our last 6 league games have seen one first half goal scored, so that would appear to be the bet to go for in this market.

First Goalscorer:
20 points on Demba Ba at 7.0
Demba Ba hasn't been quite as prolific in recent matches, but he has an impressive record against Stoke with four goals in his last three league matches against them, so at odds of 7.0 he's worth a small bet to be first goalscorer of the game.

My general football tips are on a run of five consecutive profitable weeks, so to see how my predictions compare, here are a few tips on some of the other midweek games being played this week... 

Chelsea V Fulham - Double Chance:
20 points on Fulham or Draw at 2.5

Swansea V West Brom - Match Result:
20 points on West Brom at 3.0

Southampton V Norwich - Match Result:
15 points on Draw at 3.5

Charlton V Peterborough - Match Result:
30 points on Charlton at 1.73

Blackburn V Bolton - Match Result:
15 points on Draw at 3.4

I'll check back on Thursday to see how my tips do.
