Manchester City will look to maintain their new-found scoring streak when they entertain Wolves at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night. City are certainly back in the title race after closing the gap to Liverpool down to just four points. Meanwhile, Wolves find themselves in the top half of the table with not many points separating them from seventh-placed Leicester City. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Manchester City were able to come up with a huge 9-0 win over Burton Albion in the League Cup semi-finals to effectively seal their place in the finals even before the second leg. During the weekend, City picked up a 7-0 victory over Rotherham United in the FA Cup.
Wolves were able to come up with a huge FA Cup upset as they beat to Liverpool 2-1 at the Molineux Stadium last weekend. This was the second major scalp for Wolves in the last three matches after they beat Spurs 3-1 at the Wembley Stadium.
The recent match between the two clubs witnessed a 1-1 draw. Wolves were able to get a goalless draw – before ultimately losing on penalties – in their last visit to the Etihad Stadium for a League Cup match in October 2017. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Manchester City.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Manchester City win at 1.18[/bet_tip_now]
Wolves may take a lot of confidence from the recent wins over Tottenham and Liverpool, but there is little denying the superiority of Manchester City ahead of this match. Guardiola’s team did have a wobble a few weeks ago, but the team are certainly looking to have overcome this position. The Wolves outfit did have a strong defensive display in the reverse fixture back at the Molineux Stadium, but it is unlikely to see them repeat the same at the Etihad Stadium. Our preview would go with a win for the City.

Manchester City vs Wolves draw odds: 8.00
Wolves win odds: 17.00
Correct Score odds
Manchester City have been able to score a remarkable 16 goals in the last two matches, but it is unlikely that the team will be able to come up with such a huge score against a rather strong Wolves outfit, who remain as one of the five teams to take a point off City in the league this season. Still, our correct score prediction expects a Manchester City 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
After having scored an incredible 16 goals in the last two games, City have certainly rediscovered their brilliant best. Wolves may try to hold out City for as long as possible while trying to hit on the counter-attack, where Guardiola’s team have always been vulnerable. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds Sergio Aguero at 3.25
Sergio Aguero will be looking to make a major impact just as he did in the recent match against Liverpool. The Argentine came up with the opener against the Reds and it also put him as the top scorer at Manchester City with 10 league goals. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Sergio Aguero.
