Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Manchester City
After two falls in a row, the ghost of defeat wandered the Etihad stadium this Thursday, since in the first half they were losing 0-2 to Tottenham. However, in the second half, the forwards Julián Álvarez and Erling Haaland appeared to score and tie the game, and then a brace from Riyad Mahrez gave the team a marvelous victory.
This triumph came after the words of Pep Guardiola where he said that they could not win the Prem but that it was not a problem because they had already won enough, perhaps taking a little pressure off the team. However, a mist of gloom was already surrounding the fans in the stands due to the team’s performance, as Pep criticized their attitude.
With that victory, City is 5 points behind Arsenal, but with 1 more game. With 50 goals, they are the team that has scored the most in the Premier League, while Erling Haaland already has 22 goals and is the tournament’s top scorer.
Why Bet on Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton beat West Ham 1-0 last weekend, thanks to a goal from Daniel Podence, and left the relegation zone. They have 17 points but the last 3 of the table have 15 points, so any setback sends them back to the red zone.
The Spanish Julen Lopetegui, who made his debut as Wolves coach in December, added his second victory in the Premier League in 4 games, where he also drew with Aston Villa (1-1) and lost with Manchester United (0-1). These are good numbers, although they have already been eliminated from the EFL Cup (they lost to Nottingham Forest on penalties) and the FA Cup (they lost to Liverpool).
Something that the team does have to improve if it wants to save itself this season is the goal. They have barely scored 12 goals in 19 games and are the team that scores the least. Daniel Podence (5) and Rubén Neves (4) have 75% of the team’s goals. Although it must also be recognized that they have a good defense (27), especially considering the position they are in.
Final Betting Analysis: Manchester City vs. Wolverhampton
Manchester City took a big weight off their shoulders by winning against Tottenham and so did Haaland, who scored again after 3 games. The Citizens are clear favorites and they will surely face an opponent who will try to defend themselves with everything and come out quickly on the counterattack. Although these are not the best games for Pep’s team, we believe that individual superiority will be enough to win the match.
At MyBookie.ag we find that Manchester City is the favorite of the match with a Moneyline of -526, while Wolverhampton has +1350 and the draw is at +620.
The last time they met was on September 17 last year and Manchester City won 3-0 with goals from Jack Grealish, Erling Haaland, and Phil Foden.
