Man City v Tottenham Betting Offers and Tips
Tottenham have had their fair share of heartbreak in recent years. The North London side were, for many pundits and fans, the best English side over the last two Premier League seasons but fell agonisingly short of winning the title on both occasions.
The new campaign began with optimism that this could finally be Tottenham’s year but just 17 games in and their chances of winning the title are as good as over.
To be fair, the chances of anybody other than Man City winning the Premier League are looking slim after Pep Guardiola’s men were victorious in the Manchester derby.
Man City to Keep Up Frightening Pace at the Top of the EPL
It wasn’t always pretty at Old Trafford last weekend but there’s no doubt the three points Pep Guardiola’s men secured are the most important of the season to date.
Guardiola has been doing his best to remind everybody that there is a long time still to go and that Man City will be well tested along the way. However, the rowdy celebrations of his players and staff in the away dressing room at Old Trafford suggested a team fully aware that the win takes them a big step closer to the title.
While belief is at its highest point among the Man City players, the Tottenham squad can be forgiven for questioning themselves. Mauricio Pochettino remains a very well regarded manager but his team are yet to really hit their stride in the league.
It’s been a different story in the Champions League at least. Spurs beat Real Madrid on their way to winning the group and their fans will hope for another massive performance against one of Europe’s best sides on Sunday.
Unfortunately for Tottenham, we can’t see it.
Not only are Man City full of confidence but they’ve already beaten the four teams directly below them in the EPL table. That makes the home side look a good bet at $1.50 with Palmerbet.
Expect Plenty of Goals at the Etihad
Man City are playing so well this season that fans of other teams are trying to get tickets to the Etihad just to watch the Citizens in full flow.
Although the likes of Southampton, Huddersfield and West Ham have made life difficult for Guardiola’s men recently there is next to no chance of Pellegrino parking the bus like they did.
Spurs will look to score and we think they could well get on the scoresheet. We just think City are capable of putting three or more past the visitors.
From a betting perspective, bets on over 3.5 goals at $2.35 with Unibet and both teams to score at $1.58 with Crownbet should provide profit from the bookies.
Punters Spoilt for Choice in First Goalscorer Market
Pep Guardiola’s biggest challenge at Man City could be keeping both Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero happy. The City manager prefers to play with just one out-and-out striker and loves the work rate of Jesus but how can you leave out a striker of Aguero’s quality?
So far, Guardiola’s rotation has kept both men happy but it’s punters are finding it a little more frustrating. Unless you wait until the teams are announced an hour before kickoff, choosing a Man City player for a first goalscorer bet is difficult.
To avoid that dilemma, it may well be worth skipping the pair of them and betting on Leroy Sané to make the breakthrough at $6.00 with Centrebet.
The German will sit high and wide, stretching the Tottenham back-three and when he gets on the ball he’s capable of quickly fashioning a goal scoring opportunity out of nothing.
Things are a lot simpler when it comes to Tottenham. Harry Kane is very much their main goalscoring threat and we think he can come up with the goods once again in a big match so back him to score anytime at $2.40 with William Hill.
