Stoke are 17/20 (Boylesports) to beat Wolves but The Potters look like they may be playing with the FA Cup final in mind.
Stoke showed no signs of a hangover from their FA Cup semi-final triumph as they collected a decent point at Aston Villa and although boss Tony Pulis admits his players are tired, they appeared to be playing for cup final places at Villa Park on Saturday.
The Potters are also strong on home soil, hence why they’re odds-on at 17/20 with Boylesports to collect maximum points as they entertain struggling Wolves. However, Mick McCarthy’s men are scrapping for their lives at the moment and although they have a dismal away record, the Wolves squad know that victory at the Britannia Stadium, priced at 4/1 (Betfred), in their game in hand, will be a huge boost in terms of their survival bid.
They’ll be up for it then and can glean something from the clash so they’re worth considering in the handicaps, where Paddy Power give them a goal start at even money.
