Man City v Tottenham tips
Manchester City take on Spurs at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday from 12.45pm and the game is televised live on BTSport1.
The hosts are 1/2 favourites (generally), while Spurs can be backed at a huge looking 7/1 with Betfred and the draw at 18/5 with Bet365.
City have an excellent recent record against Tottenham, having won 6 of their last 7 Premier League meetings and when these two sides meet the goals seem to rain - the last six league games between them have seen 30 goals, with City scoring 22 of them. So, the first bet we suggest is City to win and both teams to score at a best price of 21/10 with Coral.
City won this fixture 6-0 last season (125/1 with BetVictor), and 3-1 and 3-2 the two seasons before that and we think that BetVictor have made a mistake in offering odds as big as 4/6 on Over 2.5 Goals here.
With those recent high scoring games firmly in mind we also suggest placing a few high scoring Correct Score wagers too. Let’s back City to win 3-1 at best odds of 12/1 with BetVictor and also 4-1 at best odds of 22/1 with Coral.
Edin Dzeko has made a habit of scoring against Spurs, with six goals in as many league games. You can back him each-way to score the first goal at 9/2 with Bet365, who offer 1/3 odds for the place in this market (if your player scores at any time in the game).
But we cannot ignore Sergio Aguero. The Argentinean has scored five in five against Spurs and he too looks a big price at 4/1 with Coral to score first.
Finally, we suggest having an interest in a goal being scored by Spurs’ Christian Eriksen. The Dane scored the Spurs goal in their last game (1-0 v Southampton) and he will be keen to impress having been blamed by his national team manager, Morten Olsen, for Denmark´s loss to Portugal in midweek. Back him to score at a huge 5/1 with Bet365.
