Arsenal vs Manchester City Predictions | EPL Odds

Last Updated: Feb 21, 2023

The English Premier League race is in the balance on Wednesday when Arsenal hosts Manchester City at the Emirates.

The Gunners currently hold a three-point lead and a game in hand over the Cityzens for the Premier League title, but a lot can change after this game.

Manchester City are currently clouded with the allegations that they violated numerous Premier League financial rules, and this could be a distraction for the players as they could face severe punishment if found guilty.

Let’s dive into the EPL odds and best bets for this showdown between the Gunners and Sky Blues.

Arsenal vs Manchester City Odds

  • 3-Way Handicap: Manchester City (+145) | Draw (+245) | Arsenal (+175)
  • Draw No Bet: Manchester City (-130) | Arsenal (+100)
  • Over/Under Goals: Over 2.5 (-115) | Under 2.5 (-115)
  • Both Teams to Score: Yes (-140) | No (+110)

Arsenal vs Manchester City odds are current as of Friday, Feb.10, at Caesars Sportsbook.

Manchester City are road favorites on Wednesday, which is a surprise based on the recent form of both teams.

Arsenal have been dominant at home this season and, as league leaders, should be favored in this contest.

There is value betting on Arsenal to win this game as well as the draw.

Arsenal vs Manchester City Prediction

Arsenal 2-1 Manchester City

Manchester City have struggled recently and have failed to capitalize on Arsenal’s losses to gain points on the league leaders. Kevin De Bruyne has not been in form and has faded from the title as the league’s best midfielder this season.

Arsenal will still be without Gabriel Jesus, but Eddie Nketiah has filled the role well enough for the side.

The Gunners have not lost a game at home this season, and the only match they didn’t win was a 0-0 draw against Newcastle.

This game will be won in the midfield, and at the moment, the Arsenal midfield are in better form and are playing better football.

Erling Haaland has been quiet recently as he has not received quality balls from the wings, which has caused the Manchester City offense to be stagnant.

I’m siding with the team in better form right now and throughout this season in this heavyweight matchup.

Arsenal vs Manchester City Best Bets

Arsenal Draw No Bet (+100) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Arsenal are not going to drop points at home against Manchester City, and I expect them to win the match.

In the event the match does end in a draw, the Draw No Bet wager is the safe way to go here.

This means if the game does end in a draw, the wager will be refunded, making this our EPL Bet of the Day.

Over 2.5 Total Goals (-115) at Caesars Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The last time these two teams faced each other was just a couple of weeks ago during the FA Cup, resulting in a 1-0 victory for Manchester City at the Etihad.

This will be a different atmosphere at the Emirates, and I expect goals from both teams in this contest, pushing the total Over 2.5.

City looked messy at the backline against Tottenham last week, and Arsenal lost the xG (Expected Goals) battle against a relegation squad in Everton last weekend as well. Expect goals in this match.
