Tottenham vs Man City – Betting Preview
Conte, who might sit in the director’s box for this game if he is allowed to travel, saw Son Heung-min score a hat trick and Arnaut Danjuma score his first goal in a comfortable Deepdale victory before travelling to his native Italy to undergo surgery!
Harry Kane’s record-tying 266th goal for Tottenham helped the club win the cup after a hard-fought Premier League victory over London rival Fulham.
However, the Lilywhites are still playing catch-up in the Champions League race, currently sitting fifth and three points behind Newcastle United and Manchester United, both of whom have a game in hand.
Tottenham is attempting to win three straight games for the first time since October, although the Lilywhites have recently struggled at home and suffered a loss right after back-to-back victories in November and January!
Man City Preview
In the first half of their FA Cup fourth-round heavyweight match against Arsenal, Man City finally tested their mettle against the only team in the country to have outperformed them in the 2022–23 season, although Mikel Arteta would ultimately have another unhappy return to the Etihad.
Man City eliminated the Gunners in the fourth round thanks to a brilliant goal from Nathan Ake, but the defending Premier League champions still have a lot of work to do to overtake Arteta’s unstoppable leads.
Erling Braut Haaland’s fourth hat-trick of the season, which ended a brief goal drought, destroyed Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0 two weekends ago.
but Guardiola’s men remain five points behind Arsenal – who have a game in hand – after the Gunners left it late to beat Manchester United!
1×2 Betting Odds
Given how regularly the Lilywhites concede goals at home and how little glory the champions have enjoyed on opposing fields, it would not be surprising to see a flurry of goals between Tottenham and Man City here.
Despite playing at home, the market has deemed Spurs as the underdogs in this @ 4.65.
Guardiola’s usually free-flowing team has something off this season, but they defended well against Arsenal, and it’s always hard to tell which Tottenham team will show up, so we still anticipate the champs to win by a slim margin!
Man City are the favourites to win here @ 1.82.
The market odds for a stalemate and points dropped for City, stands @ 4.33.
Total goals over/under
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.71.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.35.
Usually a City – Spurs contest is filled with drama, and the market expects that trend to continue!
Now City are yet to register a goal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but with Haaland on their side that could change this time around!
Expect both sides to score, but also a City win!
