Betting Preview and Predictions for Man City vs Brighton
Date: May 9, 2018
Drawing 0-0 with Huddersfield on May 6th failed to dampen the spirits of those Manchester City fans who celebrated their side lifting the Premier League trophy following the final whistle. Pep’s side have been a joy to watch this season and they’ve given the home fans plenty of cheer. The hosts take on another one of the promoted sides on May 9th as they welcome Brighton for a midweek Premier League clash.
Despite failing to find the target against the Terriers, Manchester City are heavily fancied to wrap up three points against the Seagulls. They’ve netted 58 times at home so far this season and it would be unprecedented for them to fail to hit the target for a second consecutive game.
The Citizens start as 1/7 favourites with William Hill for this clash and are expected to stroll to another three points as they continue their dominance of the division.
Playing the correct score market could be the best way of approaching this game. 2-0 is always a popular scoreline and would replicate the side’s previous meeting at the AMEX in August.
A 2-0 correct score is available at 11/2 whilst 3-0 to Manchester City can be backed at 6/1.
Brighton ensured their Premier League safety on May 4th with a vital 1-0 success over Manchester United at the AMEX. They have struggled on the road this season and they aren’t expected to get on the scoresheet here.
Both Teams to Score? No is available at 13/20 with William Hill.
Gabriel Jesus Could Strike Again
With Sergio Aguero’s continued absence, Gabriel Jesus is likely to lead the line once again. The Brazilian has been in decent form since returning to the side and he is fancied to find the back of the net once again.
William Hill are offering 7/2 for Manchester City to Win and Gabriel Jesus to Score.
He wasn’t able to find the back of the net against Huddersfield but he is priced at 3/1 to open the scoring here.
