Manchester City vs. Tottenham ATS Pick
Tottenham +1 (+140) ★★★★
When it comes to a club’s bogey team, Tottenham have found a way to take down Pep Guardiola’s sides, regardless of Spurs' form, beating them 1-0 without Harry Kane in the lineup for last year's season opener.
Spurs won both league encounters with City last season, including the 3-2 victory at the Etihad Stadium in February, as Antonio Conte's side sat in 7th place. Harry Kane scored a brace in that match, with his second coming in the 95th minute after Riyad Mahrez had equalized for the hosts in added time.
Tottenham have won three of their last four games, scoring 12 goals and conceding five. They will have to take on City at home, who now have the added scoring power of Erling Haaland. But Spurs have always been able to apply the pressure; the win margin has been just a single goal in their last three meetings.
Manchester City vs. Tottenham O/U Pick
Over 3.5 (+126) ★★★★
Tottenham have scored at least two goals in three of their last four games, while Manchester City have already tallied 20 goals on the season in just six Premier League games, as well as a 4- 0 Champions League thrashing of Sevilla on Tuesday.
While Erling Haaland has already reached the double-digit mark, scoring 12 goals for City, Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Julian Alvarez all have multiple goals on the season, and Phil Foden finally got on the scoresheet this week, after tallying four assists since August. Nine different City players have at least a goal or assist this campaign.
As for Tottenham, they have their own top striker in Harry Kane, who has tallied five goals in six league games. New signing Richarlison also showed what he's capable of as he scored his first two goals for Spurs in their 2-0 win over Marseille in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
City have scored at least four goals in three of their last four matches, while only four teams have scored more goals that Tottenham in the Premier League so far. Expect the Over to hit in a high-scoring affair, just like it did the last time the two teams met.
Manchester City vs. Tottenham Prop Pick
Haaland and Kane to score (+340) ★★★
There is no player with a higher expected goal rate in the Premier League than Erling Haaland, who currently sits at an astronomical rate of 7.3, and an expected rate of 1.37 goals per 90 minutes.
Haaland has failed to score in just one game for City this season, on Matchday 2, where he still registered an assist. He's scored at least two or more goals in three of City’s last four matches.
As for Kane, the hero last time these two teams met up, his expected goal rate has risen to 4.4 and is sitting at 0.74 goals per 90 minutes. The England captain has scored in four of Tottenham’s last five Premier League matches, only failing to score in their draw to London rivals, West Ham.
Haaland leads the league in goals while Kane is tied for third, and the two prolific strikers will both be required in the scoring department in what could be one of the games of season.
