Stoke City piled the pressure onto Alan Pardew on Monday night with a 1-0 win over Newcastle and now face the Toon’s rivals looking add more woe to north-east football.
But Sunderland, who are 29/20 for victory, have an excellent record at home to the Potters and will be confident of extending that run and picking up their first win of the season.
Read on to discover Ladbrokes News’ three tempting bets for the game at the Stadium of Light…
Stoke may have enjoyed a 2-1 success at the Stadium of Light in the Carling Cup earlier this season but in the Premier League it’s been a different story for the Potters against Sunderland.
The Black Cats are unbeaten in 12 league matches against Mark Hughes’ side and have picked up all three points on seven occasions during that period.
Sunderland may not have tasted victory so far this campaign but back that to change when Stoke come to town!
The Stadium of Light really has not been a happy hunting ground for Stoke in the league with Hughes’ men scoring just once in their last six visits to Wearside.
The visitors have been in good form already this season but we are backing their Sunderland curse to strike once again this Saturday.
While we are backing Sunderland to keep Stoke quiet if one man is going to break Mackem hearts it’s sure to be Peter Crouch.
The former England man has scored two goals in his last two league matches and it would be no surprise to see him continue that form here.
