Man City vs Everton Pick and Prediction
|Man City -2.25
It appears challenging to find value in the Man City vs Everton betting this weekend, as the home side will be incredibly short on the moneyline. City have dominated the previous encounters between the sides, winning eleven of the last 13, but this fixture did end in a shock draw last term.
However, it could be worth siding with the reigning champions covering the (-2) spread when making a bet on the Man City vs Everton matchup on Saturday.
Man City vs Everton Betting Odds
As expected, the home side are very short at -515 in the Man City vs Everton betting this weekend. A victory for the away side in the EPL odds is available at +1397, with the draw priced up at +741.
Manchester City vs Everton Analysis
Manchester City Preview
It has been a professional start to the new calendar year for Man City, as they have begun to put pressure on the sides around them in the league standings. City come into this round on EPL matchups after winning each of their last five, and they are just two points off the top.
The Man City schedule is busy throughout February as the Champions League restarts, but their main focus will revolve around moving to the top of the standings.
Pep Guardiola’s side have a dominant record against sides in the relegation places after winning 21 of their last 23. They are also unbeaten across that period since a 3-2 loss at Norwich in September 2019.
City’s home record also deserves all the respect this weekend. They have suffered just one defeat in their last 35 at the Etihad, and City have gone 21 without defeat at their home stadium.
The pressure is back on Everton at present after the Toffees dropped back into the relegation places following a poor run of form. Victories have been hard to achieve based on the Everton results in recent weeks, as they have gone five without a win.
However, they have at least been harder to beat in recent matches after playing out draws in their last three. Despite that, the EPL team stats show that they are one of just three teams that are without a win in their last five.
Set pieces will be key for Everton at the Etihad this weekend, as half of their goals this term have come from dead-ball situations. That is the highest rate of any side in the Premier League.
In fact, the EPL player stats show that only Arsenal have scored more goals from set pieces in 2023-24, and Liverpool are the only side to have registered more shots.
Manchester City vs Everton Head to Head
Manchester City are without a defeat in their last 13 league matches against the Toffees since a 4-0 away loss in January 2017. Meanwhile, Everton are winless in their last 12 visits to the Etihad.
