Manchester City vs Tottenham is Saturday’s late kick-off, with out-of-form Tottenham visiting the Etihad to face the league leaders.
Manchester City betting tips
Manchester City are looking incredibly solid this season, having not lost a game since their defeat to RB Leipzig in the Group Stages of the Champions League at the beginning of December. They’re currently nine points ahead of Liverpool, despite Liverpool’s excellent form as of late. Betting on Man City to beat Tottenham is looking like a fantastic wager to make, with the home side undoubtedly the favourites going into the weekend.
Saturday’s game could be a fantastic opportunity to make an over-under bet, considering the Manchester club have scored 61 goals this campaign alone. So far in February, City have bagged four against Fulham in the FA Cup, two against Brentford, four against Norwich and five against Portuguese champions Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League. If anybodyis going to put several goals past Spurs, it’s likely to be Man City.
Tottenham betting tips
Tottenham Hotspur have hit a blockade in the last few weeks, having lost their last three league games to Wolves, Southampton and Chelsea. A comfortable 3-1 win against Brighton in the FA Cup wasn’t enough to set them back on track, and the London-based club find themselves down in eighth position, albeit with a number of games in hand. Betting against Tottenham seems to be the sensible play, although you’ll get better odds on them clutching a victory, which, in the Premier League, is alwaysa possibility.
Betting on Tottenham to concede seems almost like a no-brainer. Spurs find themselves with the worst goal difference in the top half of the table – excluding 10th place Southampton. With Man City’s current goal-scoring form, betting on Tottenham to let in at least a goal or two could be a worthwhile wager to make.
Manchester City vs Tottenham stats
Regardless of recent form, this fixture has previously been a fairly even event. The last time these two teams faced each other was August 2021, with Tottenham winning 1-0. Man City won the other two games against Spurs last year, once in the league and once in the League Cup.
Since 1909, Manchester City have won 65 of their encounters with Tottenham, lost 64 and drawn 36. That being said, if you’re looking to bet on either team, it’s probably sensible to base your decision on their recent form, rather than their historical meetings.
