Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur 12/3/23 EPL Soccer Betting Odds, Picks, and Predictions

Manchester City (9-2-2) vs. Tottenham Hotspur (8-2-3)


Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur 12/3/23 – Two of the top teams in the English Premier League meet on Sunday, December 3rd when Manchester City hosts Tottenham Hotspur at Etihad Stadium. Both clubs are near the top of the EPL table and will be looking to continue their strong seasons with a victory here. Our free expert EPL picks indicate this should be a highly competitive match between two talented squads.


Manchester Cityy boasts a fearsome attack led by the League’s leading goal scorer Erling Haaland. With 14 goals already this season, Haaland will test a Tottenham defense that has struggled at times. However, Spurs have an impressive attack of their own, led by forward Son Heung-Min. Son’s combination play with Dejan Kulusevski could create problems for the City back line. Still, the Sky Blues have one of the most talented and deepest squads in Europe and will be tough to beat at home.


Tottenham have exceeded expectations so far under manager Antonio Conte and have a chance to make a statement with an upset victory over the defending Premier League champions. Conte’s organized defensive shape could frustrate City’s free-flowing attack. And scoring threats like Son and Kane are always dangerous on the counter. However, Manchester City have been in imperious home form this season. Playing at the Etihad, Pep Guardiola’s men will likely have too much attacking verve for Spurs to contain.

When: Sunday, December 3, 2023 at 11:30 AM ET
Where: Etihad Stadium


Ederson vs. Guglielmo Vicario


Ederson has been his normally solid self in goal this season for Manchester City. His distribution skills help initiate City’s possession play. Ederson will have to be alert to any Tottenham counter attacks when he has the ball at his feet. But the Brazilian’s reflexes and shot stopping are top class and he gives City confidence at the back.


Hugo Lloris’ recent injury has given new Spurs keeper Vicario a chance to shine. And the Italian has performed admirably behind Tottenham’s improving backline. Still, Vicario doesn’t yet boast Lloris’ big-game experience. Manchester City’s dynamic attack led by Haaland and formations that overload the box could test the young keeper in this contest.


Soccer Odds/Point Spread: Manchester City -250, Total 2.5 


With oddsmakers installing Manchester City as -250 favorites, the Sky Blues are expected to take care of business at home. But the +400 payout on a draw may tempt some bettors given Spurs’ ability to tighten things up defensively against elite attacks. The over on 2.5 total goals also offers plus money (+170) which is intriguing given City’s propensity for scoring (over 2 per game this season) and Spurs own goal-scoring capabilities.


Manchester City Betting Trends


Man City are 5-0 in their last 5 games, demonstrating excellent league form. They also boast a strong 9-2-2 overall record and have only lost once at home all season. While City have dominated opponents, they have been less reliable covering spreads lately, going 3-2 ATS in their last 5 contests. However, they are 2-0 ATS in their last 2 contests at the Etihad. 


Tottenham Hotspur Betting Trends


Like Manchester City, Tottenham has also won 4 straight Premier League matches coming into this marquee matchup. They’ve been strong on the road too with a 5-2 ATS record away from home. However, the totals have gone UNDER in 4 of Spurs last 5 overall, reflecting some inconsistent offensive performances. The UNDER has also hit in 4 of their last 6 road contests. So Conte’s conservative tactical approach when away from home also contributes to fewer goals.


Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur 12/3/23 Betting Picks


This figures to be an intense clash between two squads near the top of the table looking to keep pace with Arsenal in the league race. Manchester City are in stellar home form and have galvanized after an inconsistent start. Backing them to win at Etihad Stadium is the savvy play.


However, with Tottenham’s dangerous counter-attacking quality, Spurs have the ability to nick this one with a goal against the run of play. Manchester City giving 1 goal on the spread at -113 odds and the draw at +400 offers betting value and could pay off on what looks to be a tight contest. Our expert handicapping tips lean toward City finding a way to earn full points but suggest taking the goal insurance if you back the Sky Blues.
