Manchester City just have to beat Brighton at Amex Stadium to wrap up a second straight Premier League title and we can’t see them falling at the final fence.
The Blues have rattled off 13 consecutive victories in this competition, with Ederson incredibly keeping a clean sheet in 10 of those fixtures.
We’re snapping up Evens for Pep Guardiola’s side to win to nil again here for our opening Brighton vs Man City prediction.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton aren’t the type of team to just roll over and let City coast to victory, as they showed when drawing 1-1 at Arsenal last time out.
The Seagulls were already assured of staying up following Cardiff’s defeat the day before, but still defended as if their lives depended on it at Emirates Stadium.
Glenn Murray’s second-half spot-kick cancelled out Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contentious early penalty, as Albion earned a third draw in four outings.
“We were on the back of two dogged performances away from home,” said Chris Hughton. “Wolves away, which was a big point for us, and of course nearly getting a similar result at Tottenham.
“Defensively, we have been more of how we know we can be. Probably the areas that we have been short is getting the goals we need – and that was the case again.”
Looking at the Brighton vs Man City odds, that form ties in nicely with taking 11/5 for the visitors to prevail 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 at Amex Stadium.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo, Stephens, Bissouma, Gross, March, Jahanbakhsh, Murray.
Colombia forward Jose Izquierdo is absent due to a knee complaint. Midfielder Davy Propper also misses out as he is still sidelined with a hamstring problem.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City are usually associated with cutting teams apart by pouring forward at every opportunity and Guardiola insists they will attempt to be on the front foot throughout here.
He declared: “We are going to go to Brighton and attack them and attack them and attack them to be champions.”
However, the Blues have been content to grind out victories during an intense run-in, securing a third 1-0 success in four matches when edging out Leicester on Monday.
It took a spectacular long-range strike from Vincent Kompany in the 70th minute to decide that contest and City were then happy to hold on for another three points.
This game is again all about breaking down a stubborn home defence and then finishing on top of the table, while past meetings with Albion also point to a low-scoring success.
City won 2-0 here last season, obliged by the same scoreline at Etihad Stadium in September and prevailed 1-0 in their recent FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.
That makes 4/1 for an away win and under 2.5 goals worth adding to our Brighton vs Man City betting tips.
Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Gundogan, B Silva, D Silva, Zinchenko, Foden, Sterling, Aguero.
Kevin De Bruyne could return from a hamstring injury. Midfielder Fernandinho (knee) is still out.
