Competition: Premier League
Market: Manchester City to beat Leicester
Odds: 33/100 @ 888sport
The Premier League is back this weekend after an international break that brought with it a number of exciting World Cup playoffs that finally decided who would be turning out at the showpiece event in Russia next summer. While the games themselves were very interesting, the average football fan will be desperate to see club football return, with international games not bring quite the same level of intrigue as a league game. With this in mind, Manchester City travel to face Leicester in a big match on Saturday.
Leicester City have gone through something of a rejuvenation in recent weeks, remaining unbeaten in their last five games. In that time, they have won twice and drawn three times, allowing them to climb up to 12th in the table with 13 points, now four points clear of the relegation zone. Three wins, four draws and four defeats across the season is a fairly poor return considering the talent in their squad, and they will want to push on following a good run of form since the departure of manager Craig Shakespeare.
For Manchester City, this campaign has been near perfect. 10 wins and one draw means they are eight points clear of second-placed Manchester United, and they are currently flying high. They have scored a league-high 38 goals, whilst only conceding seven times along the way. Regardless of who they play, Pep Guardiola’s men are always looking to score goals and play their own way, rather than adjusting massively. It is clear that they do not fear anyone in the league this season. With this in mind, 888sport have given City odds of 33/100 to win this one.
