Manchester City and the Wolves face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Etihad Stadium. When these two teams faced off in September of 2022, the game ended in a 0-0 draw. 

Manchester City vs Wolves Odds

Manchester City is currently the favorite sitting at -525 while the Wolves are the underdogs sitting at +1300. The total in this game is sitting at 3.5 goals with the over at +125 odds. 

Manchester City Betting Preview

Manchester City currently sits in second place in the standings having picked up 42 points. Manchester City is trying to chase down Arsenal so every game they don’t pick up three points is a big missed opportunity. On Thursday they faced off against Tottenham Hotspur and were able to play to a 4-2 victory. They were down 2-0 at halftime, but four goals after the 51st minute allowed them to pick up a victory. Riyad Mahhrez scored in the 63rd and 90th minutes. Manchester City had 58 percent of the possession and six shots on target.  Manchester City is actually quite healthy heading into this game. Rico Lewis is dealing with an ankle injury and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be able to go here. Kevin De Bryne has missed some training this week, but he’s expected to play in this game. 

Wolves Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is the Wolves who sit in 16th place in the standings having picked up 17 points. On Tuesday the Wolves faced off in the FA Cup against Liverpool and they were defeated 1-0. Last Saturday against West Ham United, the Wolves were able to win 1-0. The Wolves had 59 percent of the possession and four shots on target. Even though they only scored one goal it was a pretty comfortable victory. Diego Costa is finally healthy again and he could move into the starting lineup in this game. Sasa Kalajdzic, Pedro Neto, Boubacar Traore, and Chiquinho are all still dealing with injuries and they aren’t going to be able to play in this game. In this game, if they want any chance they are going to need the defense to step up in a big way. 

Shane’s Free Pick

This over is one of my favorite plays of the weekend.  Manchester City’s offense has been strong heading into this game and they are going to continue the success scoring here. Their defense has had some issues though, and the Wolves are going to find the back a time or two. Manchester City can cover this over by themselves, and the over is going to cash here with ease.
