Fulham vs. Manchester City Preview and Betting Odds

Last Updated on May 8, 2024 12:56 pm by Erwin Noguera

Manchester City is only one point away from the top of the Premier League. With one game in hand to play, they depend on themselves to become champions, but on matchday 37, Fulham wants to play the role of villains (or heroes, depending on who you support). 

On the previous matchday, the Cottagers could not get the three points visiting Brentford, with whom they drew 0-0. 

The Citizens feasted on Wolves and won 5-1 at the Etihad, with four goals from Norwegian striker Erling Haaland.

Why Bet on Fulham?

Fulham’s number one goal for the season was achieved: they did not lose the category. However, they could not take a step forward after their positive previous season. 

The Whites are coming from a 0-0 draw with Brentford, so they are in 13th place with 44 points, far from the positions that give them a place in European competitions. Moreover, they are not going through the best of times, as they have three games without a win: to the draw of the last matchday must be added the 1-1 with Crystal Palace and the 3-1 defeat against Liverpool. 

A worrying point is that they have conceded more goals (55) than scored (51), which speaks of a lack of balance. Their best scorer is Brazilian striker Rodrigo Muniz, who has nine goals and one assist. But he has only one goal in his last six games. 

Playing at home, this team is mediocre, with 29 points in 18 games. They have won nine times, drawn only twice, and lost in seven opportunities. 

Fulham has no injuries or suspensions to face City. 

Why Bet on Manchester City?

The Premier League title is on the way for Manchester City, as long as they can win all the remaining matches on the calendar. That would be a success that would put the bitter pill of being unable to repeat the Champions League behind them. 

The Citizens are coming from a 5-1 home win over Wolves, thanks to four goals from Erling Haaland and one more from Argentine Julian Alvarez. The Norwegian consolidated his position as the top scorer in the competition, reaching the 25-goal mark. The club’s second top scorer is Phil Foden, with 16. 

Guardiola’s team has 82 points, one less than Arsenal. In addition, they need to score in large numbers in their remaining matches, as the goal difference favors the Gunners by six goals. 

One thing to note about City is that they have not lost in the Premier League in all of 2024. And they have not dropped points since March, when they drew 0-0 with Arsenal. It is an excellent visitor, with 38 points in total. 

Guardiola can count on all his players for this match. 

Final Betting Analysis: Fulham vs. Manchester City

When they played this season, the win was a resounding 5-1 victory for Pep Guardiola’s side. Haaland scored a hat-trick that day. The Citizens have an incredible streak of 15 consecutive victories against this rival and 21 without losing. The last time Fulham won was on April 12, 2009, while at home, they have not won since 2005. 

The numbers at Gambyl Exchange have Manchester City as the favorite. The Moneyline for them shows 1.275, Fulham has 11.5, and the draw is at 6.92. 

Fulham is just another stop on the road for Manchester City, and with the odds being more alike to a boxing match than to a soccer one, things look dire for the Cottagers. The Citizens are in great form and, with Erling Haaland’s goals, will be able to make a difference at the old Craven Cottage stadium by 1-4. 

Go for a win for Manchester City. If you bet $100 at 1.275, you will gain $27 for a total payout of $127.
