Friends, hello everyone!
You are on the Bookmaker Ratings channel and let’s talk about the upcoming match in which Manchester City will host Leicester.
I think it’s no secret that Manchester City are the favorites of the match. The team has won eight consecutive Premier League matches, is in first place and is in very good shape. If we take these very last 8 matches, then the average performance there is 3 goals.
Leicester, unlike Manchester City, did not rest and played in the League Cup against Liverpool. At Anfield, he played with almost a fighting lineup and in a dramatic meeting he lost on penalties, plus he lost several players due to injuries. Pereira and Seyuju were injured. In what state they are, it is still difficult to say. Vardy played out the last 20 minutes of the match with an injury. Apparently, he will not be able to take part in this game. Evans and Kostani have long been injured.
Leicester are currently the middle peasants in England. The team has conceded a goal in the last 15 away matches. Obviously, he will miss again, as City have crazy attacking potential. In eight of the last 10 head-to-head matches, it was Manchester City that won. This match is unlikely to be an exception.
Let’s move on to rates. The odds have noticeably sagged on the “townspeople”. Not all bets will have good odds, but I did take a few. I choose to win Manchester City with a handicap (-1.5). I also opt for City to win in the first half and 1.53. I take the victory of Manchester City with a difference of 2-3 goals for 2.40.
In addition, for a very curious reason, he decided to take the goal of Riyad Marez for 2.28. Why? A logical reason. In the last two rounds, he scores, this time. He always has moments. In four of the last six rounds, he has started, but even if he comes on as a substitute, he will have chances and one can hope for his goal.
In addition, a very curious fact is that Marez played on Boxing Day five times and lost on all five occasions. With his goal, he will contribute to the end of this unpleasant streak. Hope we get lucky. Good luck!
