Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview
Tottenham Hotspur currently sits in 5th place in the standings having picked up 36 points so far this season. Last Saturday, Tottenham faced off against Preston in the FA Cup 4th round, and they were able to secure a 3-0 victory. Son Heung-Min scored in the 50th and 69th minute to secure the victory. Tottenham had 69 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Richarlison is finally back from injury and that is going to be a big boost for a team that is dealing with a ton of injuries. Pape Sarr is dealing with a hip injury and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be able to go in this game. In this game, Tottenham needs the defense to be strong and to try and make this game lower scoring.
Manchester City Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Manchester City who sits in 2nd place in the standings having picked 45 points. Last Friday, Manchester City faced off against Arsenal in the FA Cup 4th round, and they were able to secure a 1-0 victory. Nathan Ake scored in the 64th minute. Manchester City had 54 percent of the possession and three shots on target. Rico Lewis looks to be the next big Manchester City star and it looks like he’s going to be a star here. John Stones is dealing with a thigh injury and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be able to go in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
The last time these two teams faced off there were six goals scored, and there is going to be no shortage of scoring again in this game. I really don’t trust either of these defenses, and that is going to lead to this game being a shootout. Look for both teams to score at least two goals and the over is going to cash.
