Scott Parker’s Bournemouth and Michael O’Neill’s Stoke City go head-to-head at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday. After their last two EFL Championship games were called off due to the bad weather, the Cherries will be fresh for this one. Bournemouth have been in good form of late, and Parker’s boys will be hoping to return to action with three points on home soil this weekend. The Potters are unpredictable, but the hosts are the odds-on favourites in this one. Check out the latest odds and best tips.

Bournemouth Preview – Cherries to return with a fourth straight league win?

Bournemouth head into this weekend’s match having won five of their last seven in the Championship. Since back-to-back losses to Luton Town and Hull City, the Cherries have won three league games on the trot.

Bournemouth are sitting pretty in second right now with games in hand on their promotion rivals. On the whole, the Dorset club have had a fine Championship campaign, winning 17, drawing seven and losing six of their 30 matches.

Our betting prediction:
Bournemouth to win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1214 GMT, Friday 25 February)

With the chasing pack gaining ground, Bournemouth will want to secure another victory and stamp their authority in the top two this weekend. The home win is currently priced at 13/20.

Stoke City Preview – Can the Potters cause an upset at the Vitality?

Michael O’Neill’s Stoke City are one of the most unpredictable sides in the league. They have struggled for consistency all season, but the Potters are capable of winning anywhere in the Championship.

Stoke are in mid-table right now and are one of a bunch of clubs hoping to make a late dash for the play-offs. They have been decent on their travels lately, winning half of their last eight and losing only one of five. However, they lost at home to Luton in midweek.

Bournemouth vs Stoke City Betting Advice

It was a tight affair when the two met at the bet365 Stadium earlier in the season. Dominic Solanke scored the only goal of the game to win the points for Bournemouth.

Last season, Stoke left the Vitality Stadium with a 2-0 win at the end of the campaign. The Cherries had already qualified for the play-offs, while City ended their season in 14th position.


Key Facts – Bournemouth vs Stoke City Betting Tip

  • Bournemouth have won five of their past seven in the Championship
  • Stoke have won four of their last eight away games
  • The Cherries won 1-0 at the bet365 Stadium in October


Bournemouth’s last game was a 2-1 win at Blackpool on 12th February, so Parker’s boys will be raring to go on Saturday. Stoke can cause the Cherries problems in this one, but our money is going on the home win. The Bournemouth victory and over 2.5 goals is nicely priced at 8/5.

Dominic Solanke has been Bournemouth’s main man in front of goal this season, as the former Liverpool man has helped himself to an impressive 19 Championship goals so far. Solanke, who netted the winner in Stoke in October, is the 15/4 favourite to open the scoring in this one.
