Our Top Odds Pick – Over 3.5 Manchester City Goals – 6/4 at Betfred
With fixtures coming thick and fast, Pep is likely to tinker with his side, but whoever he plays should have more than enough class to see off a low confidence Birmingham side.
City have banged in 11 goals in their last four matches despite having no recognised striker up top.
Birmingham have lost five of their last six and, more worryingly, shipped four goals in two of their last three, as they struggle for any sort of form.
We’re expecting Manchester City to add to their tally here and are siding with Pep’s men to bag over 3.5 goals against a Birmingham defence that creaking more than a Capitol Hill security barricade.
Our Long Shot – Manchester City to win 5-0 – 13/1 at BetVictor
City have kept clean sheets in nine of their last 12, and facing a Blues side that’s only scored one in their last four, it should be an afternoon stroll for the City defence.
With Manchester City goals expected, we’re taking a chance on a mighty 5-0 correct score at some juicy odds.
