Premier League Previews for Norwich City v Stoke City along with Prediction for week 29. Included in my preview is my pick, statistical analysis for each team, recent form, and betting odds.
The Canaries season has not been ideal for them. Currently sitting in 15th place with 28 points, they are still stuck in the relegation battle. Every time they seem to have turned a corner, it seems to be followed by another setback. The most recent was their 1-0 win over Tottenham followed a 4-1 defeat to Aston Villa.
The Potters of Stoke City have had their own difficulties this season. While they are moving farther away from the drop zone, you could say they are not quite safe just yet. In 13th place they have 30 points, which is still just five above the bottom.
My pick is a draw. Stoke has not played as well on the road and they will be without Charlie Adam, following his charge for violent conduct. There are several statistics to point to a result like this.
Norwich has kept a clean sheet in their last four EPL home matches while Stoke has not scored in six out of their last eight away matches. In addition Stoke has not won on the road in their last 12 Premier League games.
Betting Odds (Bovada):
Norwich win: 2.15; Draw: 3.25; Stoke win: 3.60
Form: Norwich (D, L, D, L, W, L) Stoke (L, W, D, D, L, W)
Prediction: Norwich City 1 – 1 Stoke City
