Manchester City and Chelsea face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Etihad Stadium. 

Manchester City vs Chelsea Odds

Manchester City is the favorite sitting at -300 while Chelsea is the underdog sitting at +800. The total in this game sits at 3.5 goals with the over paying out at +125. 

Manchester City Betting Preview

Manchester City sits in 1st place in the standings having picked up 85 points. It’s another championship season for Manchester City, and they are playing well heading into this game. On Wednesday against Real Madrid, Manchester City was able to secure the 4-0 victory. Bernada Silva scored in the 23rd and 37th minute to pace the team. Manchester City had 60 percent of the possession and eight shots on target. Manchester City is pretty healthy heading into this game but they are going to be without Nathan Ake here. In this game Manchester City needs to have the offense to be strong. 

Chelsea Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Chelsea who sits in 12th place in the standings having picked up 43 points. Last Saturday against Nottingham Forest, they played to a 2-2 draw. Raheem Sterling scored in the 51st and 58th minute. Chelsea is dealing with some major injury issues heading into this game and they also don’t have a whole lot of confidence. Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Marc Cucurella, Mason Mount, N'Golo Kante, and Armando Broja are all dealing with injuries and have already been ruled out. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Manchester City might rest some players but they are still going to have no issue getting the job done here. This Chelsea defense has been leaky all season, and it’s going to be leaky again. Manchester City is going to score at least two gaols, but I think they will finish with three or four. Back Manchester City -1.5 to cash.
