Tottenham v Man City Odds*
Manchester City 3/4
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on October 26th, 2018 at 6:03 pm)
City remain unbeaten
No-one has gotten the better of Manchester City this season and then they have been out on the road to two of the other top four sides already. They took a 2-0 win at Arsenal at the start of the season before playing out a 0-0 draw with Liverpool at Anfield in a cagey battle in their last away game. So based on those performances they should be a good value option to avoid defeat at the very least.
Can they go all the way and deliver the win to back up those odds of 3/4 on Manchester City to beat Tottenham?* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 6:03 pm). The Citizens have gone W2 D2 in their away games this season and they have only conceded the one goal on their travels. With a run of five straight clean sheets in the top flight, they are probably going to be very difficult for Spurs to break down.
Manchester City to win to nil is at 9/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 6:03 pm). They have the scoring power of course and Pep Guardiola’s men have scored at least 2 goals in all but one of their last six league games in the top flight. Last weekend Manchester City went out and beat Burnley 5-0. That was the third time this season that they have had produced at least five goals in a Premier League fixture.
Sergio Aguero has opened the scoring in two of their last four fixtures, scoring in three of their last four. So he has come from behind him and he is the 3/1 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 6:03 pm) for the clash at Wembley. Manchester City took a 3-1 win at Spurs last season which was after thumping the Lilywhites 4-1 at the Etihad. That leaves the Citizens on a three-match winning streak against Spurs in the top flight.
Spurs form misleading?
Spurs though are carrying a four-match winning streak into his fixture and they have gone undefeated in 35 of their last 38 home matches in the top flight. So why are they 15/4 underdogs?* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 6:03 pm). Their current form really has to be taken into context. In this four-match winning streak, they have been Brighton, Huddersfield, Cardiff and West Ham.
Those are all sides currently 14th or lower in the current table. Going back to their home form they have just the one clean sheet under their belt and Liverpool did get the better of them at Wembley back in the middle of September. Spurs have produced five goals at home this season in their there games, with three of these in their home opener against Fulham, who have the worst defensive record in this season’s top flight.
Harry Kane has only the one home goal this season and while he has three goals in their last six league games, two of those were from the penalty spot. So he’s not in the sharpest of scoring form, certainly not when it is stacked up against that of Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero. Spurs have lost both matches this season so far against sides currently in the top seven, both 2-1 reverses against Liverpool and Watford.
There are vulnerabilities there for Spurs which were shown midweek in their 2-2 draw with PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League, a game which Tottenham really needed to win. Manchester City have the form and the scoring power to out-punch the Lilywhites and the odds on Manchester City to beat Tottenham at 3/4 odds looks good value* (betting odds taken on October 26th, 2018 at 6:03 pm).
