The Line: Man City -1000 / Draw +800 /Newcastle +2000 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Reigning champions, Manchester City will continue their English Premier League campaign this weekend as they host Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium. These two teams are hugely followed and that should ensure this will be a much-anticipated game this weekend.
Manchester City had a tough match last weekend as they failed to beat Wolves. That draw caused some problems for Pep Guardiola as his team has fallen behind the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool. This weekend, they will need to bounce back well. With Kevin De Bruyne out with injury, Manchester City are lacking a bit of creativity and it will be important for the likes of David Silva to provide the spark in attack. At home, they should be able to beat Newcastle United easily but it will be important for the midfield to create more chances.
On the other side of the coin, Newcastle United will feel that they should have more points. This side has played well but have been unfortunate to not get any wins. This will be a very hard game to win but I am expecting the Magpies to put up a fight. Newcastle United made it very hard for the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham but it will be interesting to see if they can cause Manchester City any problems.
All in all, I am picking Manchester City to bounce back and get a win. I think Newcastle United will be beaten quite easily since they are not very good away from home. As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a good price to wager on Manchester City winning so that is a bet which I would avoid. The best bet in the over 2.5 goals since I see Manchester City scoring many goals against a fragile Newcastle United defense.
