Stoke City vs Luton Town Prediction
Stoke are struggling to pick up a win. At the moment, they are sporting a dismal three-match losing streak under their belt. Their most recent matchup on the road, in particular, saw the hosts throw away a one-goal lead against Hull and were subsequently handed a 2-1 defeat at the end of the ninety minutes.
With no more than fourteen points to their name, the home side are just two points shy of hitting rock bottom on the ladder.
Luton, on the other hand, redeemed themselves in front of their faithful last week following their shocking 7-0 defeat at the hands of Brentford on the road. Despite falling behind by a goal in their previous matchup with Wigan, the visitors pulled back two quick goals in the dying minutes of the ninety to ensure that all three points went their way.
Nevertheless, the guests have admitted defeat in seven of their last ten fixtures in the second division. It is also worth mentioning that Luton have not picked up a point in any of their previous five outings on the trot.
In contrast, Stoke have stumbled just twice in their last four games here, and have garnered six points from a possible twelve as well.
Taking into account that Stoke have secured the bragging rights in three of their past five clashes with this foe here, Luton have little or no chance at all of coming out on top this week.
Furthermore, the hosts have found the back of the net five times from their last four games on home soil. Meanwhile, Luton have not looked organized at the back and have conceded twenty-five goals on the road so far, which is the most by any side in the cluster.
Considering that four of their past five h2h meetings here have also been high scoring affairs, count on over 2.5 goals on the charts in this one.
