Premier League betting – Man City vs Fulham
Man City vs Fulham betting odds, tips & free bets
Manchester City League Position: 3rd League Form: WLDWL
Manchester City have begun to play some exciting football of late, while they still do rely on Mancini’s philosophy of holding midfielders bolstering the backline, players like David Silva and Yaya Toure have really injected some creativity into the side. Silva and Toure are both likely to start and with both in such good form either would be good value to open the scoring in this fixture at odds of 10.0 and 9.0 respectively on Bet365.
But when it comes down to scoring for Manchester City there really is only one man who comes to mind, the team’s top goalscorer Carlos Tevez. 4 goals in the last 5 matches and 18 goals overall this campaign mean that bet on Tevez scoring either first, anytime or last in this fixture should definitely work out. Tevez has odds of 4.0 on Bet365 to score first, odds of 1.83 on Bet365 to score at any time and 4.0 to score last on Bet365. City’s injury troubles have not improved though, with Adam Johnson, Nigel De Jong, Shay Given and Shaun Wright-Phillips still out. However if there is any squad with a wealth of depth it is Manchester City so a strong line-up should start this Sunday.
Fulham League Position: 13th League Form: WLWDD
Fulham’s form of late has improved and with that the chances of Mark Hughes being sacked have severely decreased. The midweek loss against Bolton won’t have helped morale at Craven Cottage but being unbeaten in 4 games before the loss will definitely spur Fulham on. Bobby Zamora made his return midweek and could be in line to re take his starting place. The odds of him scoring at any time in the fixture definitely have some promise at 4.5 on SkyBet and he will be looking to come back with a bang this weekend.
Fulham have drawn their last 2 league fixtures and have amassed an astonishing 13 draws home and away in the Premier League this season. So a bet on it being a draw at half time then finishing as a draw full time at odds of 7.0 on ToteSport may be a good one.
City should be favourites for this tie, they have been playing good football of late and while they may not be prolific scorers against Premier League sides they should be backed to win comfortably here at Eastlands. A bet on City winning 2-0 could be a likely one at odds of 7.25 on UniBet.
