Paddy Power Bookmaker Latest Betting Odds: Man City 10/11, draw 11/4, Tottenham 10/3
At the end of Manchester City’s 5-1 annihilation of Tottenham at White Hart Lane earlier this season, only a deranged fool would have believed in Spurs’ title credentials.
However, with little over three months remaining in the season Harry Redknapp’s side are only 12/1 (Skybet) to win the Premier League as they sit just five points off rivals City, who lead the way with 21 games played.
This weekend’s game is huge on many different levels. A Spurs away win (10/3 StanJames) and Rednkapp’s side have to be considered as genuine contenders, while a win for City (10/11 WilliamHill) could potentially put them six points ahead of Manchester United, who have a tricky away fixture to content at Arsenal. The draw can be backed at 11/4 (Betfred), which would please any United fan.
It is City however who have proved most popular with punters. Their home form, put simply, is sensational. They have taken 58 points from a possible 60 in their last 20 Premier League games on home soil and won the last 15 in a row – still confident Spurs fans?
Well maybe you can take hope from your side’s brilliant away form that has been the catalyst for a wonderful season thus far. Redknapp’s side have lost just one of their last nine Premier League away matches and apparently the draw no bet on a Tottenham win (2/1 Sportingbet) has provided a lot of interest.
As with all Super Sunday games covered by Sky Sports, the producers will be hoping for plenty for of talking points as well as plenty of goals. Spurs have kept just one clean sheet in their last eight Premier League away games while City have scored 31 goals at the Ethiad Stadium this season.
Over 3.5 goals (7/4 Bet365) could be the way to go if you’re expecting a lively encounter, as could the both teams to score market which is always a popular bet with some of the big players. Currently you can get 4/6 (BlueSq) on both teams to notch.
In games like these it’s usually the star players that come into their own and could prove the difference in the sides. City’s striker Sergio Aguero has been their main man this season and he’s 33/1 (Skybet) to score a hat-trick and a more realistic 5/1 (Ladbrokes) to open the scoring.
