Manchester City and Liverpool face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Etihad Stadium. When these two teams faced off on December 22nd it was Man City that secured the 3-2 victory. 

Manchester City vs Liverpool Odds

Manchester City sits as the favorite sitting at -160 while Liverpool is the underdog sitting at +425. The total in this game sits at 2.5 goals with the over paying out at -155. 

Manchester City Betting Preview

Manchester City comes into this game sitting in second place in the standings having picked up 61 points. On Saturday, March 18th, Manchester City faced off against Burnley in the FA Cup, and they were able to secure the 6-0 victory. Erling Haaland had another strong game finishing with three goals. Haaland is having a strong season but he had to pull out of the Norway squad with a groin injury. If Haaland isn’t able to go that is a big loss for Manchester City here. Phil Foden went through an appendix surgery over the weekend and he’s going to be out for the next four weeks. 

Liverpool Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Liverpool who sits in 6th place in the standings having picked up 42 points. On March 15th, Real Madrid faced off against Liverpool and they were defeated 1-0. Liverpool had 46 percent of the possession and five shots on target. Luis Diaz is back with the team after missing the last five months. It’s hard to imagine that he’s going to start here, but it wouldn’t be shocking to see him come off the bench here. Kostas Tsimikas is dealing with a hip injury and it’s not expected that he’s going to be able to go in this game. 

Shane’s Free Pick 

Liverpool’s defense has been an issue at times, this season and that is going to be an issue again in this game. Look for Manchester City to score at least three goals here. I do expect Liverpool’s defense is going to find a way to score a couple of goals also, and this game is going to be high scoring. Back the over 3.5 goals to cash here.
