5th Mar 2017 | Premier League
By any reckoning Defoe is going to score more than one in four times in this situation so the odds are all wrong here.
Jermain Defoe has scored eight Premier League goals against Manchester City which makes them his second favourite opponents behind Wigan.
When you consider his history, a best price of 3/1 on the former England striker firing anytime already looks generous with Betfred.
But it gets even better because we’re not reliant on the past to make the bet look sensible. The 34-year-old has struck 14 league goals this term - which puts him just three behind the pace-setters - starting with one against City on the opening day.
Guardiola’s side generally impress on the road but having only kept clean sheets in 24% of their top flight matches, they also give most opponents a chance.
