Chelsea v Man City Bets – which EPL title contender will come out on top?

On Sunday 3 January, Chelsea will host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge, with these two teams potentially battling it out for second spot in the Premier League according to the latest betting odds. There are several antepost betting markets and that includes the EPL Winner where Liverpool are strong favourites at the time of writing.

As we go into the festive schedule of Premier League fixtures, Pep Guardiola’s side are trading at odds of 5/2 to win the title and Chelsea are a good deal bigger at 12/1 although a recent 3-0 victory over West Ham steadied the ship and this might be a game where the bookie odds indicate that it’s quite hard to call a winner.

What Are the Bookies Odds for Chelsea v City?

Manchester City are the bookmaker favourites for practically every Premier League match unless they’re away to Liverpool, with the visitors likely to be marginally shorter than their opponents considering that they tend to have a higher expected goals number on a game-by-game basis.

Sergio Aguero could be coming to the boil nicely after spending much of the first few months of the season on the sidelines, with Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez offering a threat from out wide and former Chelsea midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is potentially devastating running into space.

Some might want to back the home side to triumph as they did last season when prospering by a 2-1 scoreline, with Christian Pulisic looking to be in excellent form and perhaps Timo Werner can get it right against another title rival after the German has proved underwhelming in front of goal thus far.

While you can get a nice price about Chelsea, you should also consider the draw betting odds and they also take into account the possibility that this will be a tight clash considering that neither team can afford to lose the game if they’re to stay on the coat-tails of Liverpool.

Which Are the Best Betting Markets for Premier League Game?

As many of you know, the bookies odds are vast when it comes to every EPL encounter, with some of the betting markets worth exploring for this clash at Stamford Bridge. We actually quite like the Over/Under 2.5 Goals betting market and would plump for a low-scoring clash considering that both teams are a bit more safety-first than last season.

Lampard clearly reacted to the recent defeats at Everton and Wolves by making sure that the team were defensively super-tight against West Ham United and this is going to be a continuing trend, while you can be sure that both managers will want to field their strongest teams for this encounter.

You could also look at the bookies odds on the Asian Handicap betting market where you can back either side off scratch and know that you will get money back should the game end in a draw. Our personal preference is for Chelsea considering they have slight home advantage.

What Are the Best Betting Tips for Chelsea v Manchester City?

Some might include a Manchester City win among their betting tips and there’s an element of Chelsea being flat-track bullies this season and struggling when it comes to clashing with some of the leading teams in the division.

Indeed, it could be the Blues head-to-head record against the other leading teams which comes back to haunt them, with the betting markets often seeing them go off favourite recently only to see Chelsea slipping up.

The betting odds about a low-scoring game could be the outcome to back and perhaps No Goalscorer could be a decent shout considering that City had this outcome at Old Trafford and it happened in Chelsea’s match against Tottenham.
