Over 1.5 goals at Stoke vs Bournemouth 1/2 for Tuesday’s Championship matchup

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport

Looking to lay down another marker on their travels in midweek, Bournemouth will make the trip to Stoke on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, left frustrated on their travels when returning from the international break and hit with a late 2-1 defeat away at Sheffield United over the weekend, Stoke will be glad to make a return to home soil on Tuesday. Still leading the chase in the play-off hunt and impressing many across the Championship since opening the 2021/22 campaign, Michael O’Neill’s men should find the mood in their camp at a continued high. Still boosted by that eye-catching victory against West Brom earlier in the month, the former Northern Ireland boss will be boosted by his side’s continued success at the Bet365 Stadium. Including victories against the likes of Reading, Nottingham Forest, and Huddersfield, Stoke are remarkably unbeaten on home soil across any competition so far this season.

As for the visitors, once again impressing over the weekend and landing a deserved 2-0 victory away at Bristol City, Bournemouth have really found an immediate boost under Scott Parker. Climbing their way to the top of the Championship table and tipped as a leading pick to secure a Premier League return, the south coast outfit are in the midst of a real purple patch. Including a 2-1 win against Sheffield United when heading into the international break, Bournemouth are unbeaten in each of their last eight straight outings, a run that stems all the way back to their EFL Cup drumming against Norwich on August 24th. Looking to lay down another marker in midweek, the former Fulham boss will also be impressed by his side’s performances on the road. Landing 14 points from their six contests away from the Vitality, we could have an eye-catching meeting here.
