  • 6 of the last 11 head-to-heads went OVER 2.5 GOALS
  • Man City have scored in their last 11 vs Leicester

Manchester City got their Premier League title challenge going last week with a decent 1-3 away win at Wolves and that sent out a few early signs to the rest of the main players in the league.

Next up for Pep’s men is to host the 2015/16 champions – Leicester – who have started their new campaign well with two wins and certainly won’t be a pushover for City.

The match betting, on the other hand, suggests differently with Man City on offer at just 1.28, with the draw 5.75 and Leicester 9.00.

Last season this fixture resulted in an easy 3-1 home win for City – a repeat of that score can be backed at 11.00. It’s also worth noting that 2 of the last 7 head-to-heads ended 1-1 – this can be backed at 13.00.

Other options to look at could be the ‘both teams to score’ market – 8 of the last 11 head-to-heads have seen both sides find the back of the net, so at 1.66 this option catches the eye.

City’s Jesus, who was on target for them in their opening game at Wolves has scored in the last two head-to-heads – he’s on offer at 4.50 (1st) or 1.72 (anytime), while it goes without saying Leicester’s Jamie Vardy is going to be their main man in front of goal – he’s 7.50 (1st) or 2.50 (anytime).

But with Man City not without their issues at the back and Leicester having plenty of firepower in front of goal then the BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE market @1.66 is how we are going to play this one.
