Manchester City vs. Southampton
Saturday, September 18, 2021 – 10:00 AM EDT at Etihad Stadium
Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends
- Manchester City has won four consecutive games in all competitions.
- Manchester City has avoided defeat in 55 of their previous 64 matches in all competitions.
- Southampton has won four of their last 25 Premier League fixtures.
- Southampton has conceded two or more goals in their previous seven away fixtures.
The Saints Need Jesus This Weekend
Manchester City's new season got off to a rocky start with small 1-0 defeats to Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur in the Community Shield and EPL, respectively. However, Pep Guardiola and Co. have soon found their feet with seventeen goals scored in their previous four fixtures.
A midweek Champions League appearance for City saw them decimate RB Leipzig 6-3. Tired legs could be an issue, but Guardiola possesses a squad with unlimited depth, meaning that player rotations are less likely to affect results.
EPL Betting Picks
It's been a winless EPL run for Southampton thus far, and their chances of finding three points this weekend are doubtful.
The last time Southampton traveled to the Etihad, it ended in a 5-2 hammering, don't be surprised to see a similar scoreline this Saturday afternoon.
Manchester City vs. Southampton Score Prediction: Manchester City 4 – Newcastle 1

Hertha Berlin vs. Greuther Furth
Friday 17th September, 02:30 PM EST at Olympiastadion Berlin
Consecutive Victories for Berlin Lined Up
Hertha Berlin will be eager to capitalize on their satisfactory home record on Friday night, as the hosts will entertain the struggling Greuther Furth in a lower-level Bundesliga clash.
Having lost just one of their previous seven home games, introducing a team in Greuther Furth shouldn't give them much to worry about. Sure, they dropped their initial three Bundesliga games of the season; however, a 1-3 away victory at Bochum last weekend has reinvigorated their confidence.
Bundesliga Betting Picks
The newly-promoted side in Greuther Furth hasn't matched up to the top-tier level of competition. A long eight years outside of the Bundesliga hasn't been kind with their return, and a long season of battling relegation could be on the cards.
No need to complicate this wager; a straightforward Berlin home victory seems likely. The Kleeblatter haven't adapted to Bundesliga life and won't have the quality to match a disciplined Hertha Berlin squad.
Hertha Berlin vs. Greuther Furth Score Prediction: Berlin 3 – Greuther Furth 0
Bundesliga Pick: Berlin to Win ML (-143) at Intertops
Atletico Madrid vs. Athletic Bilbao
Saturday, September 18, 2021 - 10:15 AM EDT at Wanda Metropolitano
Undefeated Streak to Continue
Both Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao have owned positive starts to their 2021/22 La Liga campaign. Still, when Madrid are defending their home soil, it's difficult to fade the current Spanish champions.
Marcelino will confidently march his Bilbao squad into the Spanish capital, having taken four points from a possible six during their road trips this term. But despite their heroic efforts of late, they're now faced with a different animal in Diego Simone's championship-winning squad. So where's the value with these La Liga odds?
La Liga Betting Picks
Atletico Madrid has had issues when allowing goals this term, but this hasn't prevented them from clinching the critical three points in all but one of their fixtures. Los Rojiblancos are untouched at the Wanda Metropolitano this season, and historically - Bilbao have suffered when on their travels to Madrid.
Atletico Madrid vs. Athletic Bilbao Score Prediction: Atletico Madrid 2 – Athletic Bilbao 0
La Liga Picks: Atletico Madrid and Under 3.5 (+105) at Intertops
