The Citizens just got the job done in a must-win Champions League encounter and will be heavy favorites on the soccer odds board to get another win this weekend at home to Newcastle.

Odds Overview
The biggest favorites on the soccer odds board for this week's Premier League action? That title belongs to Manchester City, who will host Newcastle as a whopping -415 ML favorite. Should we really be all that surprised the chalk's so heavy? The short answer is no.

If you want to throw away money - errrr, we mean "take a chance" -- on Newcastle to win, you can find odds in the +1000 to +1100 range of them win. A draw is available at anywhere from +500 to +550.


Manchester City
Having already lost at home to Juventus in the Champions League group stages, a win over Borussia Monchengladbach was almost a necessity, and City got just that in the 2-1 triumph away from home.

The attention now swings back to the Premier League campaign, with the Citizens hopeful to regain their spot atop the table after it was taken away by city rivals Manchester United. City is currently in second with 15 points, just one point back heading into the weekend.


The Magpies have not won a match in five straight across all competitions, so confidence is not going to be at an all-time high, needless to say. They're currently in the relegation zone, occupying the 19th spot ahead of only Sunderland.

With Georginio Wijnaldum the only member of the club that's scored more than once in league play, this is a team in dire straights right now. A trip to Manchester is unlikely to help matters.


Premier League Pick
This should be one-way traffic throughout. We see little chance that Newcastle will be able to hang around, and we wouldn't be surprised at all to see City turn this into a rout.

Let's get a little more creative with our soccer picks to avoid taking on that high ML line. We'll back the Citizens to win by at least two goals, a feat that should be able to accomplish with ease at the Etihad.

Predicted Final Score: Manchester City 3 Newcastle 0
