Everton v Man City tips – can City continue winning run?

Manchester City have failed to win seven of their Premier League matches this season although those shortcomings all occurred during the early part of the campaign and it’s been plain sailing for Pep Guardiola’s side since winning 1-0 away to Southampton on 19 December.

Since then, the Citizens have embarked on a winning run in all competitions and have fourteen consecutive victories on the the board at the time of writing, including a 4-1 demolition of Liverpool at Anfield and that saw City’s Premier League title odds shrink as a result.

Are Manchester City a Betting Banker to Beat Everton?

If you compare the Premier League match odds for the game between Manchester City and Everton on Wednesday 17 February, you will find that the home team are currently a best price 11/20 to win the game at Goodison Park, with Guardiola finding a winning combination of players and formation despite a couple of notable absences.

Kevin de Bruyne’s presence hasn’t exactly been missed in recent weeks, Sergio Aguero is not currently a consideration considering how injury-hit his season has been, while Gabriel Jesus can hardly be described as a key player either although there are a number of star performers.

Phil Foden is truly enjoying a breakthrough season and operates in tandem with players such as Raheem Sterling, Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva, while the defence is looking watertight at the moment and we’ve seen the rebirth of John Stones take place alongside Ruben Dias.

Still, one imagines that City’s winning run will come to an end at some stage and perhaps they will be thwarted by a team who have regularly stopped the leading teams from winning games this season.

How Can Everton Stop Man City?

Carlo Ancelotti is intent on steering Everton to the highest possible finishing position and the Merseyside team sit seventh in the Premier League table after a creditable 37 points from 21 games played, with the Italian now hoping that his Toffees team are able to spring a surprise against the champions-elect.

If you compare the Premier League football odds for this north-west clash, you will find that Everton are as big as 6/1 with bookmaker William Hill at the time of writing, with the Toffees bidding to land three points against the Citizens as they recently did against Chelsea and Arsenal at Goodison.

The draw betting odds are trading at bigger than 3/1, with City surely going to drop points sooner rather than later and this game takes place at a busy point in the season, with Guardiola looking ahead to a Champions League engagement with Borussia Monchengladbach.

What Are the Best Betting Markets for Everton v City?

It’s worth noting that the Manchester City defence has been brutally efficient in recent weeks, with Joao Cancelo playing as a full-back or a midfielder depending on the formation, while Stones and Dias have been excellent in front of goalkeeper Ederson. It might be the case that Aymeric Laporte earns a rare start for this clash although the visitors should still be hard to break down.

Therefore, for those wanting an alternative betting angle than simply betting on Man City to win, you can get football odds as big as 9/5 that the team win and keep a clean sheet which seems like a big price considering that Liverpool only found a way past the same opponents from the penalty spot.

Ancelotti will surely approach this game from a defensive point-of-view to avoid being cut open by attacking opponents and it could be worth looking at the correct score betting market. You can get betting odds of 1-0 and 2-0 at reasonable prices for City, with the visitors likely to find a way to break down stubborn opposition by the final whistle.
