Chelsea hosts Manchester City this Saturday in a Premier League clash between the two favorites for this season’s title – and the sportsbooks and betting sites can’t decide which team will win.

Chelsea beat City in the Champions League final back in May and boasts arguably the strongest team in the division this season. City, however, has the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling available – and all three can score at will.

The rest of the Premier League weekend sees both Manchester United and Everton play at home, while Sunday plays stage to the first North London Derby of the campaign, as Tottenham plays at Arsenal in a game neither team can afford to lose.

While there are two big games taking place in the Premier League this weekend, neither are expected to generate many goals. City and Chelsea (both +175 to win the game) could cancel each other out and tie, while both Arsenal and Spurs are struggling to find the net.

It means soccer betting fans seeking to make gains on EPL bets in the goalscorer props should look at the less evenly-balanced games for profits on betting apps this weekend…

Chelsea vs Manchester City, Under 2.5 Goals

Odds: -125 at Bet365

It perhaps seems counter-intuitive to back fewer goals in this contest, considering the incredible offensive talent on show for both teams. But defensively both City and Chelsea have never looked stronger – and neither manager will want to lose this game.

We’re therefore likely to see a cagey, chess-like encounter on Saturday, with the priority resting on midfield supremacy and strong defensive lines. Both teams could score but it would be a surprise if either pulls clear at Stamford Bridge. The good money is on a low-scoring game.

Manchester United Over Aston Villa

Odds: -250 at FanDuel

Cristiano Ronaldo now has four goals for Manchester United since his return in the summer and the Portugal international is expected to score once again on Saturday. United is in fine form and earned a late victory over West Ham in its last league game – a signal that this team potentially has the mettle to match the likes of City and Chelsea over a 38-game season.

Aston Villa has started reasonably well and beat Everton 3-0 last weekend in one of the biggest shocks of the gameweek. Yet even with Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings in the forward arsenal, Villa should be no match for this United team that is currently on cruise control.

Crystal Palace Over Brighton

Odds: +200 at FOX Bet

Monday night sees two rivals clash in South London and Palace should win this encounter. Yes, Brighton has been going strong this season and beat Leicester last weekend.

But Palace is impressing at home and, in a night game with a full Selhurst Park crowd behind the players, it’s likely that Patrick Vieira’s men will claim victory. Don’t be surprised, though, if this is another low-scoring encounter.
