Manchester City vs. Tottenham odds, picks and prediction

In Saturday English Premier League action, Tottenham (11 wins, 8 losses, 3 draws) visits Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City (20-2-3). Kickoff is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET. Below, we preview the Manchester City vs. Tottenham odds and lines, and make our best EPL bets, picks and predictions.

Man City is coming into this game having already lost to Tottenham earlier this season. Man City lost 1-0 as Tottenham sat back in defense and countered at the perfect time late in the match. Since then, Man City has been invincible, winning 20 of 24 games with 1 loss and 3 draws.

Man City is coming off a 5-0 victory over Sporting CP Tuesday in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. Man City defeated Norwich City 4-0 Feb. 12 and beat Brentford 2-0 Feb. 9. Unfortunately, M Jack Grealish and F Gabriel Jesus are both doubtful for Saturday’s tilt.

As for Tottenham, since quenching the transfer rumors of star F Harry Kane, the Spurs have struggled to maintain last season’s success with Kane and F Son Heung-min leading the attack.

Both are likely to start against Man City though. Tottenham has lost 3 straight EPL games, including being shut out twice and 3-2 loss to Southampton. Most recently, the Spurs were defeated 2-0 Sunday by Wolverhampton.

Prediction

Manchester City 2, Tottenham 0

Money line (ML)

Man City’s money line is too expensive to play. It should come out on top, but at -350, it’s a PASS.

A more reasonable way to back Man City is by betting NO (-135): BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE.

Tottenham has scored just twice its last 3 EPL games, both goals coming against 10th-place Southampton. Tottenham didn’t score against the Wolves, who have allowed 17 goals this season, or Chelsea, who has allowed 18 goals.

Man City leads the EPL, having allowed just 14 goals in 25 matches.

Man City’s defense has won the team games, and that should be the case again Saturday.

Over/Under (O/U)

BET UNDER 2.5 (+140).

This is my favorite bet in the match, especially for the value we’re getting.

Why? Well, Tottenham knows how to play Man City. It beat Man City 1-0 to start the season, and it did so by packing the box and limiting Man City’s opportunities.

While it should be difficult for Tottenham to score, Man City ranks tied for the 7th-fewest goals in the EPL, having given up 29 in 22 matches. The Man City attack is elite, but without Jesus or Grealish, it could become less dynamic.

Man City has gone Over 2.5 goals in just 1 of its last 4 games.
