Stoke City, formerly known as the Stoke Ramblers, play at the Bet365 Stadium and are managed by former Manchester United and Wales striker Mark Hughes. Stoke finished in 12th place in the first Premier League, in 2008-09, after being promoted. They have remained in the top flight since then, never finishing below 14th. The Stoke squad is one of the most underrated in the Premier League, partly because of the financial restrictions at the club. They are usually full of industrious players who go the extra yard to help each other.
Switzerland’s Xherdan Shaqiri adds some flair to the midfield, while Austria’s Marko Arnautovic makes a nuisance of himself up front and has the potential to be a fantastic striker.
Stoke forked out £13 million for Liverpool’s midfielder Joe Allen, who added a bit of guile and football nous to the side.

Stoke City Online Betting Tips
Stoke are one of those teams who are effective if not spectacular. Do not expect them to win every game 3-0 or 4-1 with breathtaking goals. But expect them to grind out results and find themselves in mid-table come the end of the season.
Usually difficult to beat at home, Stoke endured somewhat of an offseason at the Bet365 Stadium in 2016-17. They were as good away as they were at home, an unusual stat for Stoke City. On current form, there's no real general rule of thumb when betting on, or against, Stoke.
The northern side is pretty much cemented in the lower third of every discernible stat, including their home and away record along with goals for and goals against. It's more important to analyze head-to-head matchups before making your wagering decisions.
Don't consider Stoke as a futures bet in the league or FA Cup. They're just not good enough to win either.
