Reason For Fulham vs Stoke Betting Tips

  • Fulham have won 3 of their last 4 home matches.

  • Fulham have won 4 straight home league games against Stoke.
  • The visitors have lost 73% of their away games this season.

Potters Have Fulham to Thank

Stoke jumped out of the bottom three on Boxing Day, with a little help from Fulham. The Potters were able to see off Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, with that 3-2 victory turning their form around. That win wasn’t doing much for their league position until Fulham’s late equaliser at Luton secured a 3-3 draw.

Now Stoke are out of the danger zone and hoping to keep climbing. The visitors are looking to complete a league double over Fulham for the first time since the 2009-10 Premier League campaign. However, they face a major test against a Fulham side who have ambitions of returning to the Premier League next season.

Fulham Continue Promotion Push

While the hosts could only take a draw back from Luton, they are heading into this clash in fifth place. The Cottagers are just nine points shy of the top two, so their automatic promotion ambitions remain alive. They have a strong home record backing them up, with three wins in their last four at home. That includes a headline victory over Leeds, another impressive result inspired by their top scorer.

Aleksandar Mitrovic has been directly involved in 10 goals in 11 Championship games at Craven Cottage this season, scoring nine and adding one assist. He continued his fine scoring record in the league with another strike at Luton on Boxing Day. He’s consistently punished the struggling sides in the Championship, while we expect that to continue this week. With 10 goals in his last 11 games for club and country, we’re backing Mitrovic to score again here.

Cottage Fever for Stoke

Fulham have lost their last three games against Stoke City in all competitions, losing 2-0 away from home earlier this season in the reverse league fixture. However, the Cottagers have won the previous four league meetings between these two at Craven Cottage have all been won by Fulham. They’re hoping to make it five in a row here.

Fulham should follow up on that good run with a win. Not only do they have the league’s top scorer to damage Stoke, the hosts are building on some fine home form. Stoke come here having lost 73% of their away games this season, with defeats in five of their last six on the road. As a result, a Fulham win is our pick.

Fulham have seen over 2.5 goals land in 75% of their home matches. Meanwhile, the majority of Stoke’s trips have seen over 2.5 goals scored. The visitors have seen both teams score in 64% of their trips, while they’ve been beaten 2-1 on three occasions on the road this term. We see Fulham pulling off a similar result, with half of their home games this season seeing exactly three goals scored.
