Spurs v Manchester City betting

January 27th, 2014

Spurs take on Manchester City at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night in a game that could go a long way to deciding whether City will win the Premier League title and whether Spurs can claim a Champions League place. The game is live on BTSport 1 from 7.45pm.

The bookies make City favourites at a best price of 21/20 with Bet365, who offer odds of 11/4 on both Spurs and the draw.  

The Lilywhites have an excellent recent record against City with seven wins and a draw in their last 10 matches and it may be that 'Spurs / Draw No Bet' is over-priced at 13/8 with Betfred and Bet365. Of course, most will remember City's 6-0 demolition of Andres Villas-Boas' side in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, but that scoreline flattered the home side - Spurs had 13 shots compared to City’s 15 and if the league table only showed results since Tim Sherwood took over, Spurs would be top of the table.   

But City’s ability to convert chances into goals has been a hallmark of their season this term - they have a league leading 21.2% shots to goals ratio, and when you have strikers like Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo it’s not difficult to see why.

Aguero has scored 13 goals in his last 12 league appearances and has four in four when playing Spurs. Edin Dzeko is also in great form with three goals in his last four league games - while he has netted five goals in five games against Spurs. The suggestion is to back both to score the first goal. Aguero is a big looking 9/2 with Ladbrokes, while Dzeko is 11/2 with Paddy Power and Ladbrokes.

For the visitors, the player to concentrate on is Emmanuel Adebayor - he has a habit of scoring against his old clubs and can be backed at 8/1 with Bet365 to score first.
