Today's Betting Tips for Hartlepool vs Stoke

Stoke are odds-on favourites to progress to the next round of the FA Cup at Hartlepool’s expense when the teams meet on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Stoke to Win

Hartlepool are positioned just two places off the foot of the table in League Two and they are still searching for their first win on home soil since the domestic campaign resumed in the UK. Stoke have little to fear then, ahead of their visit to The Suit Direct Stadium and with a deep pool of superior Championship quality to draw from, the Potters should be able to secure the victory they need to make the FA Cup’s next round. With their hosts out of sorts, we recommend siding with Stoke in the match result market on Sunday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Hartlepool’s matches have been chock-full of action in recent weeks and 100% of their last four home assignments have broken through the over 2.5 goals barrier. Indeed, that quartet of contests averaged a whopping 4.5 goals per 90 minutes overall and six goals rattled the net when Pools played Harrogate in their most recent test at The Suit Direct Stadium on New Year’s Day. That record bodes well for goals hunters today and a stake on over 2.5 goals could be the way to swing again.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, odds and probability figures ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup encounter between Hartlepool and Stoke.

Hartlepool odds: 24/5 (5.8) – 17.2%

Draw odds: 33/10 (4.3) – 23.3%

Stoke odds: 27/50 (1.54) – 64.9%

Hartlepool only have a sniff of a chance on Sunday according to the bookmakers, while Stoke are priced at 3/5 (1.6) – 62.5% to score over 1.5 goals in Durham this weekend. The Potters’ Tyrese Campbell is available at 7/5 (2.4) – 41.7% in the anytime goalscorer stakes, which seems on the stingy side seeing as he has scored just four league goals this term.

Hartlepool vs Stoke Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Sunday’s FA Cup clash between Hartlepool and Stoke below.

Hartlepool

Hartlepool could be without the services of Mouhamed Niang, Tom Crawford, Alex Lacey and Chris Maguire on Sunday. Pools were involved in an end-to-end thriller (3-3) against Harrogate on New Year's Day, though a similarly open game on Sunday could see them hammered by Stoke.

Predicted Lineup for Hartlepool: Killip – Shelton, Menayese, Ferguson, Tumilty – Cooke, Featherstone, Sylla – Grey, Hamilton, Umerah

Stoke

Midfielder Sam Clucas is listed as Stoke's only injury concern at present and the Potters will take a strong squad to Durham on Sunday. Stoke are still closer to the bottom of the table than the top in the Championship, though they have shown signs of improvement under Alex Neil.

Predicted Lineup for Stoke: Bonham – Wilmot, Souttar, Fox – Clarke, Thompson, Baker, Tymon, Smallbone – Campbell, Brown

Player to Watch – Ben Wilmot

The versatile Ben Wilmot has been performing well in a couple of positions for Stoke this season and the 23-year-old has been a reliable presence whether deployed at right-back or in a more central role. Wilmot seems to be playing as the furthest right member of a central-defensive trio at present and he should have a big part to play again on Sunday.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
