Blackburn v Stoke Betting Preview
Not the easiest of ties for Premier League outfit Stoke to have to deal with. They will already have seen Blackburn knockout top flight opposition
in Swansea, and Rovers are in good form at Ewood Park. But the Potters are carrying some decent form of their own at the moment, proving to be a hard side to beat for most opponents they come into contact with.

Blackburn v Stoke Betting Tips
Blackburn came through their fourth round FA Cup test by beating Swansea 3-1.
Maybe they were helped out with the Premier League outfit going down to ten men for most of the game, but maybe they would have dug out a win regardless. Gary Bowyer’s men are no pushover
at Ewood Park and they don’t mind scraping out narrow wins. Remind you of anyone? Yes, that is why this duel with Stoke could produce a long arduous afternoon. Rovers have won their last three home matches now, even though they haven’t kept a clean sheet
in any of their last four at Ewood Park. Both Teams To Score in this FA Cup scrap is an 8/11 option with online bookmaker Bet365.
Rovers have recorded W3 D1 L2 form in their last six
in all competitions, and the two losses happened outside of Ewood Park. Even though only put in a subs appearance against Swansea, Jordan Rhodes is a huge positive
for them and he is a 2/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market along with teammate Rudy Gestede, who did net in the win over the Swans. The thing which may be suggest to punters that they won’t claim another top flight scalp in this season’s competition, is their head to head form against Stoke,
which isn’t good, in fact Rovers are on a seven match winless streak
against the Potters.
Stoke have avoided defeat in their last three visits to Ewood Park
and have posted four clean sheets in their current seven match unbeaten streak against Rovers. The last time the two came together was back in the 2011/12 Premier League, where both teams scored in each match. It all paints a picture of things being very tight and Stoke coming away with a one goal margin win,
which is a reasonable 3/1 punt. The Potters won at Rochdale 4-1 in the previous round and they carrying some good overall form at the moment.
The only losses that Stoke have suffered in their last ten games were league matches against Arsenal and Man City.
No real shame in that, and that does suggest that they will be strong enough to handle a trip to Ewood Park. Peter Crouch is in form, and has scored a goal in each of his last two games, while Jonathan Walters hit four goals in two games recently. Crouch is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option, with Walters a 9/4 shot. The Potters have lost just one
of their last five away games in all competitions, should be enough to see them safe.

Blackburn v Stoke Predictions
Blackburn aren’t the most consistent of sides, and even though they produced that good win over Swansea, you have to take into consideration that it was against ten men. Stoke are resilient enough to squeeze through
the tie and hit the quarter finals.
