Manchester City vs. Fulham FC

Saturday, November 05, 2022 – 11:00 AM EDT at Etihad Stadium

Premier League Trends

  • Manchester City’s previous 16 home games have produced over 2.5 goals
  • Manchester City have won by at least 2 goals in their last 6 EPL home meetings
  • Manchester City are unbeaten in 12 consecutive home games
  • Fulham has lost against 2 ‘Big Six’ EPL teams away from home this season

Man City Well Rested and Ready to Take the Top Spot

For the first time in many weeks, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was able to rest some of his key starters when competing against Sevilla midweek.

As City had already earned their position in the Champions League knockout stage prior to their final matchday against Sevilla, some of the youthful talent under Guardiola’s wing were able to notch another victory and claim all three points.

And now, City turns their attention to the EPL, where a win against Fulham would see them claim 1st position in the standings ahead of Arsenal’s London derby clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

Hard Times

It hasn’t been an easy October for Manchester City, though. Having won just 3 of their last 6 games in all competitions is uncharacteristic of the EPL champions.

Still, I believe the domestic and European schedule had taken its toll, an issue that shouldn’t be as prevalent this Saturday morning.

We should also note that three of Man City’s most recent downfalls were played away from home.

Still, when defending their crown at the Etihad, this team is currently riding a 14-game consecutive win streak which points towards another three points this weekend.

The Cottagers Are No Joke

What do you get when you cross a newly-promoted EPL side and the Premier League Champions? Well, just ask Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth, who lost to City with a combined score of 10-0 earlier this season.

Jokes aside, Fulham is no team to joke around with! The West Londoners have already bagged 19 points this season, a higher point total than their combined 2018/2019 and 2020/2021 EPL season efforts at this stage.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see Fulham on the scoresheet this week and do what their fellow Championship sides of last term couldn’t - penetrate the net of Guardiola’s squad.

They’ve scored in 11 of their 13 EPL game weeks, and backing both teams to score is a tempting approach for a game with such juice on the moneyline.

Pick and Prediction

The available EPL odds at top-rated sportsbooks have labeled the Manchester City odds with a whooping moneyline price tag. Although a home victory deserves a considerably high probability, we cannot support -833.

Guardiola’s squad has conceded a goal in 4 of their last 6 home games, and the price on Manchester City to fail at keeping a clean sheet this week is significantly more lucrative than supporting a home win.

Score Prediction: Manchester City 4 - Fulham 1

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC vs. Brighton & Hove Albion FC

Saturday, November 05, 2022 - 11:00 AM EDT at Molineux Stadium

Premier League Trends

  • Wolves have won just 3 of their last 21 games in all competitions
  • Wolves have scored a measly 0.71 goals on average in their home games this term
  • Brighton have avoided defeat against Wolves in 13 of their previous 16 meetings
  • Brighton has won just 2 of their previous 11 away matches at Molineux

Wolves Can’t Score

Entering week 15 of the Premier League schedule, Wolverhampton Wanderers are one point shy of sitting in last place of the division and are severely lacking a star man in the final third.

Last weekend’s clash with Brentford was a 1-1 score draw, but this was merely the sixth goal of the season they’d achieved to bag.

A similar affair is expected this weekend when the basement dwellers welcome Brighton to Molineux.

Wolves are still without a manager and own the worst injury crisis of any other club in the league, two factors that the players cannot fix.

Brighton Struggle in the Bottom Half

Despite sitting in the top half of the standings through 14 matchdays, and even a comfortable seat in the top 5 for a considerable time, Brighton have faltered when faced with a lower level of opposition this season.

Fortunately for Wolves, Brighton has scored just eight goals when competing against teams in the lower half of the table.

Tight defenses have been a struggle for Brighton to break, and this has been Wolves’ game plan all season long.

Pick and Prediction

The available EPL odds at Bookmakers Review have placed the favorable moneyline odds on Brighton at +130, but picking a side for this encounter isn’t a recommended betting position.

Another low-scoring game is likely on the cards, as Wolves games have seen less than three goals in 8 of their 13 EPL appearances this term.

Furthermore, three of Brighton’s last five fixtures have also provided under 2.5 goals.

Score Prediction: Wolves 0 - Brighton 0

Soccer Pick: Under 2.5 Goals (-133) [1.41u wager returns 1u] at Everygame
