Manchester City (LWWLW) and Newcastle United (DWLDW) will meet on Wednesday, July 8th for an English Premier League match. The match is scheduled for a 1:00 PM EST start time and it will be played at Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City was stunned in its last match, as the club dropped a game to Southampton by the final score of 1-0. Manchester City owned a 74% possession advantage throughout the match and had a total of 26 shots (six on target), but they could not find the back of the net. It was a miraculous performance by the Southampton keeper Alex McCarthy, as he was able to earn a clean sheet against one of the toughest teams in the Premier League, if not the toughest at the moment. Manchester City allowed a cheeky goal to Southampton, as Che Adams caught Man City's keeper Ederson sleeping, as he chipped one over his head from over 40 yards out. That would be the only goal necessary, as Southampton earned its biggest win of the season. Manchester City will be home in this match against Newcastle United, and they will be out for blood.
Newcastle United is catching Manchester City at the wrong place (Etihad Stadium), and at the very wrong time. Newcastle United has not been in terrible form, as the club has two wins and two draws in its last five. Unfortunately for Newcastle United, Manchester City will not let this game pass them, as City is going to do all it can to defend its home pitch and bounce back from an ugly loss.
The last time Manchester City and Newcastle United met was on June 28th of 2020. That was an English FA Cup match in the quarterfinals, in which Manchester City took care of business by the final score of 2-0.
The betting line for this match is almost unreal, as Manchester City is a whopping -800 favorites on the Money-Line, while Newcastle United is +2000! This is not a disrespect to Newcastle United, but more respect to Manchester City and its ability to bounce back from bad losses. There are not many plays that hold a lot of value in this match unless you want to be daring and take Newcastle United. I for one am not daring, so I will take Manchester City to win and Both Teams do NOT score at -135.
