There’s a massive game happening this afternoon, in case you didn’t know. Tottenham are heading to the Etihad to try and attempt to stall City’s tite charge, and spoil their winning streak while they’re at it.
We decided to delve into our bets and see what the punters are thinking. And it looks as though they fancy Pochettino’s side to smash the Blues…
Tottenham have a point to prove at Man City this weekend, says @jjenas8.

Tottenham to beat Man City 5-0, 500/1
This, as well as Spurs to beat City 4-0, were to of our most popular correct score bets on today’s game.
We’re not sure if it’s some very positive Tottenham fans, or some Man United fans trying to claw back a bit of dignity by being super optimistic, but there you go.
Though, it’s worth pointing out that Spurs’ recent record against the Blues is not to be sniffed at. They’ve actually won three of the last four meetings between these two sides. Even so, 5-0 seems a bit much.
David Silva to score a hat-trick, 500/1
David Silva shaving his head has made pretty much everyone want to do the same. That might be a slight exaggeration, but he’s been, arguably, the best player in the league this season.
He’s netted five goals and assisted eight so far, and this punter is backing him to make Tottenham even more miserable this afternoon.
Here goes nothing, David…
Tottenham to beat Man City 2-1 and Heung-Min to score first, 125/1
Another popular scoreline for bettors in this game is 2-1.
Our friend Beasley pointed out: ‘ep’s boys have won by that score line in six of their last 20 games, and Spurs’ joint-second most frequent score line in the same period is a 2-1 loss.’
Son’s netted five in 16 league appearances this campaign, and what a goal it would be if he got one against the league leaders.
