Manchester City is on the hunt for their seventh consecutive Premier League victory as they face off against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux this Saturday afternoon.
After achieving a historic treble last season, the high-profile Sky Blues are off to an impeccable start, aiming for an unmatched fourth consecutive top-flight title. Despite an early second-half red card forDon’t know w Rodri last weekend, Pep Guardiola’s squad secured a 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest at the Etihad, marking their sixth win in a row in the Premier League. However, their unblemished record took a hit with a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.
On the other side, Wolves have had a somewhat disappointing beginning to their season, suffering four losses in their first six league games. Although they managed a draw against Luton last Saturday, a 3-2 defeat at Ipswich Town in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night hasn’t done any favors for their morale. Facing a rebounding Manchester City this weekend doesn’t promise much relief.
Outright Betting: With no Premier League home wins this season, Wolves unsurprisingly find themselves as big outsiders at 8/1. Manchester City, hoping to retain their perfect start, are the favoured bet at 2/5.
Betting – Enhance the odds for another Man City victory this Saturday to 4/5 using the Bet Builder market, by adding Erling Haaland as a goalscorer. The City’s striker continues his stellar performance from last season, leading the race for the Premier League Golden Boot with eight goals, including a score in the last weekend’s 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.
His consistent scoring is a concern for the Wolves, who have already conceded 12 goals this season. Haaland’s record, including four goals against the Old Gold last season, suggests backing the same Bet Builder in the Black Country on Saturday at 4/5 is a solid bet.
