This is a 10* on the OVER
Realistically, Man City was not going to catch Liverpool for the top spot in the Premier League. But last Thursday’s 2-1 loss to Chelsea (where we hit the Over 2.5) ensured this Thursday’s matchup would be rendered rather meaningless. Liverpool has now clinched its first outright title in 30 years. Man City is going to finish second. As we said in our analysis for the battle with Chelsea, Man City was bound to concede a goal or two after keeping FOUR consecutive clean sheets against lesser foes. Not surprising is that these are - by far - the two highest scoring teams in the EPL. Expecting a good number of goals here seems like a formality. In City’s last 15 competitions, they’ve scored in all but three. Liverpool has notched a goal in 11 of its last 15 matches including four times the last time out. Similar to what happened to Man City last week, Liverpool's streak of two straight clean sheets since the return from lockdown is due to end. These sides have a history of going Over including a 3-1 result the last time they met. 10* on the OVER.
