Matchday 23

Bet: Total Match Goals Over 3.5

Manchester City was named as an obvious favourite of the match at betting odds of 1.55. However, in January the team showed completely frustrating results in Premier League taking only four points out of twelve. The Citizens have won only once against Burnley losing to Liverpool 0-1 and Everton 0-4. They had a chance to return to the game but drew 1-1 with Tottenham at home. That’s provided only fifth place to Pep Guardiola’s side with 12 points handicap to leader Chelsea. And it was unexpected to sports betting experts.
