Man City v Leicester Betting Predictions – Back Man City 3/1 with Bet365
Manchester City have shown a little form in recent weeks and their victory over Crystal Palace was seen as the type of performance many had expected from Pep Guardiola’s side this season. Goals have not been as issue, but Leicester have shown themselves to be very organised since Craig Shakespeare took over from Claudio Ranieri earlier this season.
City are so good in attack because they can fit the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Kevin de Bruyne in the team at the same time. But they leave spaces in behind, and Leicester will have the capabilities to threaten on the break, just as they did in the corresponding fixture at the King Power Stadium, which they won 4-2 with Jamie Vardy bagging a hattrick.
That won’t stop Guardiola attacking, and as a result City may not be able to manage the game as best they can, but their ability to pull away from teams makes a two goal margin worth the value that can come from it. That is why we have gone for it as our Premier League betting tip. Take advantage of a whopping £200 Bet365 welcome bonus while you are at it.
In a game such as this, the goalscorer markets are going to come in handy, and there are some good options on offer. Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero are both 14/5 with Betfair, while Jamie Vardy at 11/5 to net any time could be too good to miss. If the Foxes are to score at the Etihad, there is a good chance they will do so on the counter attack, where the England man thrives most.
Total goals markets are always good options when City are playing, and PaddyPower have some good offers, such as a home win with three or four goals scored at 17/10. If Leicester are to win, it will probably be a low scoring affair, and you can get 22/1 on an away win with one or two scored on PaddyPower.
