Arsenal v Manchester City 16:00

Sunday 12th August 2018

If you fancy Manchester City and their array of stars to retain their Premier League title then you’ll be rewarded with just 1.66 in the outright betting.

They amassed 100 points last season and there are no real reasons to think they can’t follow-up during the 2018-19 and land their third title.

The face a tricky first game though in what is an early-season Super Sunday treat for football fans – an away trip to Arsenal, who are around 21.00 to lift the title.

Looking at the match betting then City are the favourites to grab all three points at 2.00, with the draw 3.60 and Arsenal on offer at 3.50. However, with 4 draws in the last 9 clashes then the stalemate at 3.60 – the outsider in this market – could be the value.

City also won this repeat fixture last season 0-3 and have also won their last three vs the Gunners. In fact, City are unbeaten in their last five league games vs Arsenal and have also scored at least three goals in their last three against them too.

It’s a fixture that both teams generally score in, with 5 of the last 6 head-to-heads paying out on this bet, but there is little value in the 1.50 on offer.

It’s also a match-up that generally produces goals – ALL of the last 8 have seen 3 or more goals scored so the 1.53 on offer in this Over 2.5 Goals market is sure to be popular too.

However, it’s also a game that City’s Sergio Aguero often does well in. He’s netted 5 goals in the last 7 head-to-heads for his side and after hitting the ground running when scoring in last weekend’s Community Shield then the 2.00 on offer on the Argentine striker finding the back of the net is how we are going to play this one.
