When you look at the Premier League outright betting market, Manchester City are enormous betting favourites to be champions. Pep Guardiola’s side are chasing a fourth title in the space of five seasons and a victory over Chelsea would move them a step closer to being crowned champions.

The top football betting sites are taking no chances with their Premier League football odds when it comes to this Saturday lunchtime encounter. The home side are trading at odds-on with all the bookmakers and that illustrates that there’s a bigger than 50% chance that the north-west side will secure a win.

Manchester City Odds-On to Go Thirteen Points Clear of Chelsea

Pep Guardiola and several players have recently been suffering with COVID-19 although the Spaniard is likely to have the majority of his squad available for this big game. The Manchester City betting odds are no bigger than 7/10 and it’s hard to oppose a team who have put together a big winning run over the past few months.

Indeed, you have to back to Saturday 30 October to find the last time that City dropped any Premier League points when they lost at home to Crystal Palace. Since then, there have been a succession of victories and this is a team who are also favourites when you look at the latest Champions League betting odds.

Only Riyad Mahrez has departed for the Africa Cup of Nations, with the rest of the squad available and it’s been interesting that Jack Grealish has struggled to get game time since his big money move from Aston Villa. Perhaps the England international will be selected for this clash in place of Mahrez.

Chelsea Huge Betting Odds to Land Shock Win at Etihad

Chelsea are a team who have been unable to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table and they now trail the champions by ten points. The Champions League holders are big outsiders with the best football betting sites and you can get Premier League betting odds of 4/1 if you compare the latest football prices.

Chelsea might have a chance of securing a victory in this game if Romelu Lukaku is at his menacing best against Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte, with the Blues’ recent performance against Tottenham in the League Cup proving to be very strong and there were some highlight performances from Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz.

However, the biggest downside is that Edouard Mendy will be missing and the goalkeeper could be a big miss after a series of strong performances between the sticks for the London club this season. It will be interesting to see whether Kepa can step up and take his chance when it’s offered to him.

What Are the Best Bets for Man City v Chelsea

When you check out the Man City v Chelsea betting odds, you might want to consider the football betting markets that focus on the number of goals being scored. The Premier League bookies anticipate that the “Yes” option could certainly occur on the both teams to score betting market and that is trading at odds-on.

If we combine a couple of different Premier League bets, we can look at betting on Manchester City to win and both teams scoring, something which is trading at more attractive odds than the home win. We know that the home side are full of goals considering that they have pilfered 53 goals in 21 matches this season.

Ultimately, Manchester City will be a popular selection when it comes to the Premier League accumulator tips and it’s hard to oppose the Cityzens who might be able to take advantage of opponents who are going to be missing Mendy as well as first-choice full-backs Reece James and Marcos Alonso.
