Fresh off two straight losses, Manchester City really needs a pick-me-up result this weekend. Will the Citizens come through as favorites on the soccer odds board versus Southampton?

Odds Overview
Despite their recent setbacks, the Citizens are favored at -180 to win outright at home against the Saints, with a Southampton win priced out at anywhere from +500 to +550 on the Premier League odds board. A draw is at right around +300 if you think a deadlock is the most likely end result here.

Manchester City
Make that three straight matches across all competitions in which Manchester City has failed to pick up a win. It started with a 0-0 away draw versus Aston Villa, which was then followed by that 4-1 home loss to Liverpool. During midweek, the Citizens again ended up on the losing side in a 1-0 defeat to Juventus in the Champions League.

It's a precarious time for City right now, and they really need a positive result this weekend.

 

Southampton
Having only lost one of their last nine matches in all competitions, the Saints have been solid lately, although they are coming off a bad 1-0 loss to Stoke City their last time out.

That being said, with names like Pelle, Tadic and Mane causing havoc up top, Southampton has proven to be a menace this season. Ahead of the weekend, the Saints are in eighth place in the table and are just six points back of City.

 

Premier League Pick
While we've seen what Man City is capable of when at full strength, and while being at home is always a big advantage in the Premier League, we haven't been impressed at all with how the Citizens have been performing.

Until they show us otherwise, we're hesitant to back City, especially against a rock solid Southampton side that has more than enough talent to give the hosts a real run for their money. We look for the Saints to earn at least a point out of this fixture, and as for our soccer pick we like the price of +300 on the draw at the top sportsbooks.
