Manchester City will welcome Crystal Palace to the Etihad in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and this is a trip that not many teams look forward to. City have had a bit of a blip in recent weeks, but this is not something that I expect to last for much longer - it is only a matter of time before they go on one of those annoyingly long winning runs. Palace are on a very poor run of form and are in danger of falling into a relegation battle. Who will go on and win this match? Check out my predictions below, and all will be revealed.

🏆 Manchester City vs Crystal Palace

There have been talks in recent weeks of Manchester City being in a crisis because they have won just one match out of their previous five, but this is nonsense in my opinion. Yes, it is unusual for them to go on such a poor run of results, but we all know how good this Manchester City team is - it would not surprise me if they only lost one or two more matches between now and the end of the season. Despite their dip, they have still scored the most goals in the league and have one of the meanest defences.

Crystal Palace, on the other hand, are in a bit of a crisis as they have only two wins from their previous 10 matches, with their last win coming against Manchester United six matches ago. They are now just 7 points above the relegation zone and another loss or two, coupled with wins for other teams around them, could see them sucked right in.

There is only one outcome that I see for this match, and that is a Manchester City win. They are playing at home, and I do not see Palace having the firepower or defensive steel to leave Manchester with a positive result. I am predicting City to win 3-0.

My Prediction: 🏆 Manchester City 3 Crystal Palace 0 ⚽

Manchester City vs Crystal Palace: Match Winner Odds

Given where both Manchester City and Crystal Palace are sitting in the table, you will probably not be surprised to see that the bookies have City as the overwhelming favourites to win this match. Their match winner odds can be found below and, in all honesty, they are too short to bother yourself with.

Manchester City vs Crystal Palace: Both Teams To Score Odds

Manchester City are the top scorers in the league, having scored a total of 38 goals in the 16 matches that they have played. Additionally, they have the third-best defensive record, having conceded just 18 goals. Palace, on the other hand, have only found the back of the net 15 times, meaning that they are not even averaging a goal a game. With such stats, it is easy to see why the bookies are not backing BTTS.


Manchester City vs Crystal Palace: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

The top sports betting sites are favouring there being over 2.5 goals in this match, which is not much of a shock when you consider the fact that the highest-scoring team in the league are playing against a team that has kept just two clean sheets in their previous ten matches. If you are new to betting, with the Over 2.5 goal option, you need three goals to be scored in total, while with the Under 2.5 goal option, you need 2 or fewer goals to be scored.

✔️ Manchester City vs Crystal Palace - Betting Tips

Now that you know the type of odds that are being offered for three popular football markets in relation to this City vs Palace clash, I am now going to give you some of my top football betting tips.

  • Tip 1: Bet on a City Win to Nil: City should win this match pretty comfortably, and I do not see them being troubled much by the Crystal Palace defence. Therefore, I am confident in recommending that you place a bet on City to win without conceding a goal. By opting for such a market, you can increase the short odds that you would get for betting on them to win. Spreadex Sports are currently offering odds of 1.80 for this market.
  • Tip 2: Bet on Over 2.5 Goals: City have been getting a bit of stick lately for their dip in form, and they will be eager to remind the footballing world as to just how good they are. They will not go easy on Palace, and in a match that they should dominate, I can see them scoring at least three goals. Spreadex Sports have odds of 1.44 for this market.
  • Tip 3: Rodri to Score: If you like to place bets on players to score, then I recommend that you consider betting on Rodri. He is a very important player for City and can strike a mean ball. At the time of writing, Betiton are offering odds of 6.40 for him to find the back of the net.

1️⃣ Manchester City Update

Some football fans have already written Manchester City off, but only those who have no true clue about football would do this. Yes, they have not been playing at their best as of late, but they are still the best team in the world for me. When they are playing at the top of their game, they are extremely difficult to beat. Their previous 10 matches have seen them win 6, draw 3, and lose 1 - in all honesty, this would be considered a decent run of results for most other teams, which just shows how good City have been in recent times.

City are averaging nearly 2.5 goals a game this season and are conceding just 1.12, so if I were a Palace fan I would just go and walk the dog at 15:00 GMT on Saturday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola does not have an extensive injury list - even if he did, he should be able to cope thanks to the immense squad depth that they have. I reckon that their second team could finish in the top four. In the table below, you can see the three players that will be absent for this match against Palace.

2️⃣ Crystal Palace Update

Crystal Palace are one of those clubs whose main aim each season is to stay up and finish somewhere around mid-table. With the way that they have been playing lately, they could find themselves in a season-long relegation battle. They have lost 6 of their previous 10 matches, which has included poor losses to Bournemouth and Luton. They did beat Manchester United, although everyone does that nowadays.

The main reason for their struggles is the fact that they are finding it hard to score goals - they have found the net just 15 times in 16 matches, which means that they are averaging less than a goal per match. They have not defended too badly, in all honesty, but I can still see City having a field day against them.

While Guardiola does not have too many injuries to contend with, the same cannot be said for Roy Hodgson. He has no fewer than eight players out injured, while Jordan Ayew is suspended after having picked up two yellows against Liverpool at the weekend.
