How Many Goals Will City Score today?
Manchester City are the favourites to win the Premier League and some pundits are tipping Huddersfield for relegation. The champions from last season have a home match today with the team that kept their top flight status by the skin of their teeth. We are still in the midst of the cricket season and the odds suggest City could rack up a cricket score in the meeting today. The home team will be without Kevin de Bruyne but the squad can absorb that loss. Huddersfield are 25/1 to win this fixture but MANCHESTER CITY -3 goals on the handicap at 7/4 with Ladbrokes is the bet.
Brighton were promoted to the Premier League with Huddersfield the season before last and they play Manchester United at home today. The bookmakers predict a tighter contest and United’s trip to the south coast might not be a fun day at the seaside. Brighton avoided defeat in five of their last six home Premier League matches last season and United were not convincing in beating Leicester at home on the opening night. If they return to Manchester with three points Jose Mourinho will be their only manager to win the opening two matches in his first three seasons as boss. However, he may have to settle for a DRAW and that outcome is 23/10 with William Hill.
The best racing action is at Deauville today. Pontefract stages a decent Flat meeting and they race over jumps at Southwell and Tramore. The best race is the Group 1 Prix Morny in France, a race over six furlongs for colts and fillies aged two (2.45 GMT). The female runners get a four pounds allowance and that advantage will make PRETTY POLYANNA hard to beat and the filly can be backed at 7/4 with bet365 to win this race.
