Next up for the current Premier League leaders – Man City – is to host Spurs in the Saturday 5:30pm offering, a match-up that will be a warm-up for the upcoming League Cup Final later this season.

City are flying high at the moment and head here full of confidence after a 4-1 away win at Liverpool last weekend and meet a Spurs side that are stuttering a bit at present.

Yes, Jose Mourhino’s men got back to winning ways with a 2-0 win over West Brom last weekend, but prior to that had slipped from being top of the table in December to now struggling for a top four slot.

Harry Kane returned for Spurs in their last game after a small injury and that was a huge boost – they are clearly a better side when he’s playing and that will give their supporters a glimmer of hope here.

The match betting, however, suggests an easy 3 points for City with then Manchester side at 1.33, the Draw 5.25 and Spurs at 8.50.

Spurs, fans though will also refer their doubters to the fact this repeat fixture last season ended 2-2, while the Londoners has also already beaten City this season at home 2-0. In fact, Spurs have won their last two vs City 2-0, so this score at a massive 41.00 might appeal.

Both teams DIDN’T score in 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads, so at 1.80 this might be something to look at, while the Overs/Unders market is a bit conflicting with 7 of the last 9 repeat fixtures seeing 3+ goals, while 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads went Under 2.5 goals. You can back Over 2.5 goals at 1.61, or Under 2.5 at 2.30.

The scoring markets see Harry Kane at 7.00 (1st) or 2.62 (anytime), which is probably the biggest price the England hitman has ever been in these markets. Looking at City, their Gundogan, who has been in great form of late, is 5.00 (1st) or 2.05 (anytime), while Sterling is 5.50 (1st) or 2.20 (anytime).

Overall, it’s hard to not come back to City recording an easy win here. These sides have only played out 2 draws in their last 20 head-to-heads so we tend to get a result one-way, or another, while City have lost just 1 of the last 10 repeat fixtures.

The 1.33 on a City win is a bit short though, so with the former champions in rude scoring form at the moment then a chance is taken on the 1.61 on their being 3+ goals in the game.
