Stoke City v Fulham Betting: Potters to grab a draw against Cottagers

Stoke City showed all their battling qualities when grabbing a point from Upton Park on Monday night and Tony Pulis will be hoping they can use that dogged display against West Ham United as a catalyst for more success when they welcome Fulham to the Britannia Stadium in what is a fascinating Premier League clash.

An early Jon Walters goal from a well-worked corner handed the Potters the lead, but they were pegged back in the second half and managed to hold on for a 1-1 draw, but Saturday’s task will be equally as taxing as they welcome a free-scoring Fulham side who will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Sunderland, in which they had talismanic skipper Brede Hangeland dismissed for a lunge in the first half.

Stoke’s home form has always been their strength and they are unbeaten in the Premier League at the Britannia and that is a reason why Paddy Power have installed them as 6/5 favourites to secure all three points and pull themselves further away from the relegation zone, in which they only sit four points clear of at the moment.

However, Martin Jol’s Cottagers have propelled themselves into the top half with some excellent results, which saw them go five games unbeaten before that slip up against Sunderland on Sunday, and they have scored 12 goals in their last six games, so the Stoke rearguard will need to be at their best to keep out a potent Fulham attack, who are 23/10 to bag all three points, whilst the draw is the same price with Paddy Power.

There may not have been a draw between these two clubs since December 2008, but the 23/10 about parity after 90 minutes could be the safest flutter for punters, but for those looking for a bit more value then venture into the correct score markets in the latest betting from Paddy Power.

Stoke have played out a trio of 1-1 draws this season and that scoreline is 5/1 favourite with the Irish firm, whilst Fulham fans who fancy their side to grab all three points may be tempted by the 9/1 about a 1-0 success for the Londoners, but the standout is the 12/1 offered by Paddy Power for the game to finish 2-2 and that will certainly give you a decent run for your money.

Peter Crouch tops the first goalscorer odds and the gangly centre forward is 11/2 to notch first, whilst Jon Walters is available at 13/2 to follow up his goal at Upton Park, but Fulham’s Dimitar Berbatov is overpriced at 6/1 to grab the first strike for the away side and the languid Bulgarian can kickstart his side’s fortunes in what should be a cracking contest.
