Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur picks and predictions

Prediction

Manchester City 2, Tottenham Hotspur 1

Moneyline (ML)

AVOID.

Given Man City’s recent draws, there’s reason to believe Tottenham could keep pace. However, the Hotspur have lost 3 in a row and have had fewer expected goals than their opponent in 2 of those 3.

City is a far deeper and more technical side and should continue to dominate at home. Skip a moneyline play as the home team is too expensive to play outright.

Over/Under (O/U)

BET UNDER 3.5 (-115).

The City defense sits 3rd in the EPL and has allowed multiple goals in a game just twice this season. They have scored 3 or more goals in 6 of 13. In their 3 games against top-6 sides, City has scored 2 goals and allowed 2. They haven’t dominated against quality opponents.

Tottenham has allowed more than 2 goals just once and has scored more than 1 goal in just 2 of their last 6 games. Neither side has been hot as of late. Considering the defensive strengths, take UNDER 3.5 (-115).
