Fresh off a hard-fought cup win over Chelsea, the Potters will try to cap off a successful week with another win, this time away to Newcastle. It's time to break down the soccer odds.

Odds Overview
Newcastle is a +145 favorite on the English Premier League soccer odds board, with a Stoke City victory priced not too far behind at approximately +200. A draw is quoted in the +215 to +225 range.

 

Newcastle
Right when it looked like the Magpies may have figured out how to improve their form on a consistent basis, they go on to follow up a 6-2 demolition of Norwich City by losing 3-0 to Sunderland last weekend. Considering the Black Cats are right there in the relegation zone alongside Newcastle, it could turn out to be a critical result.

The Magpies will be aiming for redemption back at home at St. James' Park. Georginio Wijnaldum currently leads the team with six league goals, though a good chunk of those came in the win over the Canaries not too long ago.

 

Stoke City
Having outright won five of their last six matches across all competitions, the Potters are slowly but surely making up ground in the Premier League. They now stand at 14th, with 12 points earned through 10 matches.

During the week, Stoke City managed to top Chelsea in penalties in the Capital One Cup, so they should be feeling good about themselves ahead of the weekend.

 

Premier League Pick
We don't love the prospects of backing either one of these teams as our soccer picks, to be honest, but ultimately we have a little more faith in the Magpies to get the job done at home, where they just crushed Norwich City a couple weekends ago.

It's true that Stoke City has been playing better in recent weeks, but we're still not sold on them being able to fashion a positive result this Saturday. Meanwhile, Newcastle has picked up two positive results in a row at home (beating the Canaries and drawing 2-2 with Chelsea), and we look for the hosts to take care of business this weekend.
