Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City (2021/22 Premier League, August 15) Betting Tips & Predictions
It has been a long wait for the 2021/22 Premier League season. What better way to start the season than this exciting fixture between 2 top teams?
Form: Tottenham vs. Man City
Tottenham: It is not out of context that the majority of bookmakers would term Tottenham as underdogs. The facts are there, and they don’t lie. Tottenham finished 9th at the last Premier League season, making them out of the Champions League and Europa League. With their abysmal performance last season, it is not surprising that most bookies don’t see them winning Man City. Not to mention that they are heading into the new season with a new manager in Nuno Santos.
Manchester City: The Citizens lifted the Premier League trophy and came close to lifting the UEFA Champions League trophy for the first time in history last term. Under Pep Guardiola, they had quite a dominating run for most of last season, which is a testament to their top form for most of the season. With the recent signing of Aston Villa’s leading man in Jack Grealish, it seems likely that Manchester City is coming in stronger this season.
Spurs have made 3 additions so far, with Bryan Gil, Pierluigi Gollini, and Cristian Romero joining the fray. Upfront, they remain linked with a move for Lautaro Martinez from Inter.
On the other hand, Manchester City shook the transfer window with their €117.5M signing of Jack Grealish, the highest-priced British signing ever. With Jack Grealish added to Manchester City’s already indomitable midfield, their midfield would be as strong and fluid as ever. Elsewhere, the reigning champions also announced John Stones’ contract extension for another 5 years after a brilliant past 12 months.
Between 2020 and 2021, both teams have met 4 times. In their last 4 meetings, Tottenham won on 2 occasions while Manchester City won equally on 2 occasions. With this record, it proves that both teams are constantly at loggerheads with each other.

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Manchester City Predictions
In their last meeting in the previous Premier League season, Man City won by a close margin. Both teams have a way of locking their midfield and defense when they are up against each other, with only a handful of goals. We expect that to happen with this match, especially since Tottenham has a lower tendency to concede goals when playing at home. Manchester City is favored to win, with most likely a one-goal margin. The odds for Tottenham to beat Man City is rather slim, and it would come as a rather wild tip prediction to go with.
Prediction: Tottenham City 0-1 Manchester City (6/1)
Tottenham vs. Manchester City Betting Tips
Soccer bookies place Manchester City as favourites, and the reason is not so farfetched. As you go about betting, here are some likely pointers to go with regarding Tottenham Man City odds.
- Under 3.5 Goals (4/11)
Given their last matches against each other, goals are always scarce when these 2 meet up. It is likely going to replicate here as there is a chance there won’t be a downpour of goals. To be safe, under 3.5 seems like a viable option.
- Manchester City to Win Either Half (3/10)
If you are quite skeptical about Man City winning full-time, especially because they have lost at both meetings at Tottenham Stadium, then you can opt for this option. Tottenham vs. Man City odds can prove difficult to predict, so it could be wise to play it somewhat ‘safe.’ It could also come as a good tip to consider for an in-play bet.
