The Citizens face a tricky test away to Tottenham this weekend in Premier League play, but the soccer odds are currently in their favor. Will they take care of business as the favorites?

Odds Overview
Current offerings on the soccer odds board show Manchester City as -105 ML favorites early on in the week. Tottenham is available for backing at right around +300, with a draw listed at +275 or so.

We could see some small changes to the lines throughout the week, with midweek cup competition matches to come, but all in all we can expect the Citizens to remain firm favorites for Saturday's clash at White Hart Lane.

 

Tottenham
Spurs endured a rough start to their campaign, but they've turned things around and are now sporting a six-match unbeaten run across all competitions. 

Having won three matches in a row (over Sunderland, Qarabag in the Europa League and then Crystal Palace), confidence is sky high for Tottenham. Spurs will face a showdown with Arsenal in the league cup on Wednesday, however, so we're eager to see how they hold up against a motivated Gunners outfit, particularly with this weekend's meeting with City looming.

 

Manchester City
It was a pretty disheartening week for the Citizens, as they lost two matches at home, one in the Champions League and one in league play. They fell to Juventus in a 2-1 defeat and then followed that up with a shock 2-1 home defeat to a resurgent West Ham outfit.

A mid-week Capital One Cup battle with Sunderland awaits before City travels to London to take on Tottenham. The Citizens could really use a positive result there to build up some momentum ahead of the weekend.

 

Premier League Pick
We can't overreact too much to City's recent losses. This is still one of the most talented squads from top to bottom in not only England but the entire world. The Citizens are the top favorites on the futures list to win the title for a reason, and we expect a great performance from them at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Not too often do we get the chance to back City at near even money, and while Tottenham has been playing better of late, we're still not sold on them being a legit contender. So, we'll roll our soccer pick with Pellegrini's men to earn all three points at these reasonable odds.

Predicted Final Score: Tottenham 1 Manchester City 2
