Premier League, kick-off at 3:00pm Saturday 21st October 2017 from the Etihad Stadium
Premier League leaders Manchester City look to have been handed a gimme three points on Saturday when hosting Burnley at the Etihad Stadium from 3.00pm. That’s certainly the view of bookmakers who, despite recent high-profile upsets, are fully confident the locals will get the job done and continue their winning ways.
Fancy an upset? No, me neither. It’s increasingly difficult to back against The Citizens, so much so odds compilers have taken to offering crazy prices on them losing, while shorting the odds on another win. Value is becoming thin on the ground for City backers, but we’ve found some. Follow the smart money in our betting tips and predictions.

Team News – Man City
Pep Guardiola watched on as his side opened-up a lead at the top of the Premier League last weekend, banking their seventh win from eight starts. 22 points has them two ahead of nearest rivals Man Utd, with The Red Devils happy to sit in and take a point from Liverpool at Anfield last time out. Remember what City did to Liverpool? The locals have now scored an impressive 29 goals, conceding just four. United are 21 for two.
Another maximum was dumped on the pile last weekend when getting the better of Stoke City, again in jaw-dropping fashion. Billed as a close encounter before the off, Pep’s boys raged to a 7-2 win, finding themselves 2-0 up after 20 minutes. Goals from Jesus x2, Sterling, Silva, Fernandinho, Sane and Bernardo Silva means the paying public, again, got their money’s worth. Stoke hit back through Diouf and Walker, and were briefly sitting at 2-3, but never looked likely to get anything out of the contest.
Therefore, it’s no surprise whatsoever to see another Man City win nailed down as favourite, no more than Betfred’s 1/9 doing the rounds at the time of writing. That prices us out of an interest on the match betting market, meaning we must get our hands dirty in the specials. -2 on the handicap is an option in your betting tips and predictions at 10/11 (Betfair), while the win to nil can be tested at 7/10 (Bet Victor).
Team News – Burnley
Sean Dyche faces the unenviable task of taking his Burnley side to the Etihad when the locals are in the mood to hand out another thumping defeat. There has been plenty for followers of The Clarets to smile about in the early exchanges of this season, but they face a real step up in class here, going into the lion’s den. The visitors have lost just once so far – most expect that to double.
Travelling on the back of an impressive run of form, Burnley’s stats stand at three wins, four draws and that single defeat. They have finished level in three of their last four, including a 1-1 with West Ham last time out. Antonio had The Hammers ahead that day, before Carroll was sent off on 27 minutes, picking up a second yellow card. They took their time about it, but Wood finally secured the point, scoring on 85 minutes.
With their opponents reduced to 10 so early in the contest, Burnley would have fancied themselves to go and get the win, but they failed to take their chances. Dyche explained his thinking to the press at full-time, believing his side deserved a penalty, but he was generally happy with the performance. An away win? Forget about it. There’s a staggering 35/1 available on Burnley when getting your stake down at Betfair. The underdogs to score is 13/10 (William Hill).
Man City vs Burnley – Premier League Tips and Betting Predictions
We’re going to rule out the upset and take for granted that Man City will win this match. Therefore, given the odds, we must say how they’re going to win it. That’s where recent form comes into play. Three of City’s last four outings in all competitions has seen them keep a clean-sheet. Another win to nil is the ace of our betting tips at 7/10 (Bet Victor).
That’s a nice price, considering the offer on a straight win. 4-0 home cheer is the next best of our predictions, and gives followers something chunkier to aim at. Betfair are best of the bunch, offering a cracking 8/1 that we’re right, and that looks well worth a play. The favourites certainly haven’t been shy in front of goal recently.
