Man City: Unbeatable

After ten months of fractured storylines, the Premier League season is finally narrowing to a point. Manchester City may still end up with nothing but is making a sustained final push to win it all, taking that almost-unprecedented treble of Champions League, FA Cup, and Premier League.

Another easy win against West Ham brought the Citizens within reach of another English title. There are only five rounds left until the end of the season, and City has one point more than Arsenal and one less game played, which is a big advantage over the London club with a better goal difference and ratio in head-to-head duels.

The Citizens have won their last 14 home games, and that number should be extended on Saturday against a struggling Leeds. City will face Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals next week so we might see a change in personnel on Saturday, with Pep Guardiola expected to rest some of his key players.

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland broke the record for most Premier League goals in a single season on Wednesday as the 22-year-old Norwegian scored his 35th goal of an incredible debut campaign in England. He will play on Saturday and add more to his season tally, so we will continue to include him in our Premier League picks and parlays.

Leeds: New Manager

Sam Allardyce has agreed to become Leeds United’s new manager as the club desperately bids to stave off relegation. The Whites have been in dreadful form for some months, with the dismissal of Jesse Marsch in February in favor of Javi Gracia failing to yield an improvement in results.

Leeds has been drubbed 6-1 by Liverpool, 5-1 by Crystal Palace, and 4-1 by Bournemouth and Arsenal under the watch of Gracia. Allardyce took the position, claiming there’s no better manager to keep the team in the Premier League.

The former England manager has four games to maintain Leeds’s top-flight status. Allardyce starts his tenure with an unenviable trip to EPL champion Manchester City, followed by matches against former clubs Newcastle and West Ham, before finishing the campaign at home to Tottenham. It is a tough run-in for Leeds, who is currently out of the relegation zone on goal difference. If you’re betting online, you should fade it against the most in-form team in the league.

Luis Sinisterra, Tyler Adams, Stuart Dallas, and Liam Cooper remain sidelined with injuries. Allardyce has confirmed that a few unspecified players have niggles that will be assessed ahead of kickoff.

Man City vs Leeds United Picks and Predictions

The Citizens enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -600 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Premier League odds, while the goal line is set at 3½.

Saturday’s result could have huge implications at both ends of the table, with Leeds running out of games to save itself from getting relegated. It heads to Etihad as a huge underdog against an in-form Man City side seeking to retain the Premier League title.

Pep Guardiola might rest some of his key players, but even the ones coming from the bench have more quality than Leeds’ squad. For better odds, we will combine the moneyline with the goals market.

Manchester City are listed at -600 in our Vegas Soccer lines. This means that if you wager $100 on Manchester City, you have a chance to win $17. The Leeds are +1300, offering a chance to win $1300 on a $100 wager.

The implied probability attached to the betting lines gives Manchester City a 85.71% chance to win, with Leeds at 7.14%
