Betting. Hull City vs Manchester City [26.12.16] : The Tigers are scared

Premier League

Matchweek 18

26.12.2016

Bet: Asian handicap Manchester City -1,5

With all sorts of problems on and off the field a newly promoted Hull City were considered to be an underdog by the sports betting companies before the beginning of the season. However, the Tigers made an inspiring start with 2 wins and a draw in the first 4 Premier League games. Unfortunately for them, the next 13 matches were more close to the pessimistic betting predictions – only one victory and two draws along with 10 defeats. So at this moment Mike Phelan’s side sit at the bottom of the table.

As it was predicted by sports betting experts the season got off to a good start for Manchester City. The Citizens got 10 wins out of 10 matches in all competitions, but they couldn’t keep pace. After several disappointing games Guardiola’s side slipped down to the third position with 7-point gap between them and leading Chelsea. Besides, contrary to all betting conjectures, the Blue Moon got only 9 points in the Champions League group and finished 6 points behind Barcelona.

Before choosing a bet it’s worth keeping in mind the fact that if City aspire to win the League, they can’t afford loosing points anymore. They are determined to carry on their success after overcoming Watford (2-0) and especially after a morale-boosting win over Arsenal (2-1). The Tigers, on the contrary, are not in the best of shape as they lost to Tottenham (0-3) and to West Ham (0-1) without scoring any goal. The sports betting experts remind that Phelan will still miss his usual absences Bruce, Luer, Odubajo, Hernandez, Keane, Lenihan and McGregor while Mason is expected to be back to squad. At the same time Guardiloa will be without Kompany, Aguero and long term injured Gundogan.

It’s no wonder that the bookmakers consider the away team to be a massive favorite: Hull City – 9,75, Draw – 5,85, Manchester City – 1,33. The last five encounters between these two clubs ended with City’s 4 wins and a draw. Giving the fact that the Blue Moon scored 13 goals in these five games it’s recommended to pay attention to the bet “Total Goals by Away Team over 2,5” (2,07). Besides, the bet “Asian handicap Manchester City -1,5” (1,88) seems to make it through. There is also a good option “Total Goals over 3” (1,84) as City’s defense is not the best in the League.
