Last weekends banker treble came good at 3/1 and I’m looking to follow up ths Saturday with another treble that looks a superb bet on paper. As the title suggests, Stoke look certain to take the points at the Brittania tomorrow, and there are a couple of other teams that are just begging to be backed tomorrow. After much research here are my selections for Easter Saturday’s banker treble.
Stoke City v Wolves 5.30pm ESPN
Stoke City are beginning to rebuild their reputation for the Brittania being a fortress, and they couldn’t wish for more vulnerable opponents than sorry Wolverhampton Wanderers, who sit bottom of the Premier League and looking like relegation fodder.
Wolves have managed just 1 win in their last 19 games, and are on a losing streak of 5 straight defeats with 17 goals conceded.
Home wins over Norwich and Swansea, as well as a 1-1 draw with Manchester City have helped Stoke regain a bit of much needed confidence, and they will be pleased to have emerged from a very tough few consecutive fixtures with their pride still intact. Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City one after another is no teams idea of fun, and Stoke can be forgiven for their away defeat at Wigan last weekend.
Southampton v Portsmouth 1.00pm
Southampton are looking real Premier League material, and local derby or not, The Saints look real banker material to dispose of their bitter rivals.
Reading regained top position today with their win over Leeds, but Southampton have a perfect opportunity to leapfrog The Royals at the very first opportunity.
Portsmouth have been poor on the road all season, with just 2 wins to their name. They are on a losing run of 4 consecutive away defeats without scoring a single goal, and Southampton, who have scored 11 goals in their last 5 at home, look sure to have a field day.
The Saints were unlucky to drop two points on their visit to Fratton Park earlier in the season, with Pompey grabbing an 85th minute equaliser, and they can go one step better here on home turf.
Sheffield United v Bournemouth
Bournemouth are without an away win in 8 attempts, and after gaining just 6 points in their last 6 games, their task looks an extraordinarily tough one when they visit Bramall Lane for a clash with Sheffield United.
The Blades are a very tough nut to crack when playing at home, and though they are 5 points adrift of Charlton at the top of League 1, they still have title aspirations and fans will expect a victory here.
Sheffield United won the reverse fixture 2-0 back in December and there’s no reason to believe they can’t do the season double over The Cherries, who have managed just 2 away goals in their last 6 games.
Stoke City 4/6
Sheffield United 4/6
