Man City's Best Odds: 2/9
Online bookmakers have installed Man City as clear favourites to win the match and PaddyPower offers best odds on a home win at 2/9.
Man City look strong coming into the new season, and are expected to take an easy win against Sunderland when they play on home turf in their opening game.
City may have finished in the top 4 last season, but new manager Pep Guardiola will be determined to make his mark and add another Premier League title.
The Man City team remains pretty solid, with signing’s in the pre-season transfer window that will further strengthen the team, including Ilkay Gundogan (Borussia Dortmund), Nolito (Celta Vigo) and Oleksandr Zinchenko (FC Ufa) all joining Pep Guardiola’s squad.
Sunderland's Best Odds: 12/1
If you’re betting on Sunderland ruining Man City's day, Ladbrokes offers best odds at 12/1.
Sunderland AFC had a shocking Premier League season last time out and ended up finishing in 17th place and avoiding relegation by the skin of their teeth.
They didn’t win any of their first 9 games of the 2015/16 season, and new manager David Moyes will be determined to start a lot better for 2016/17.
The Sunderland squad, who have wisely based themselves in Austria rather than rack up airmiles in pre-season, are playing well and look good heading into their opening game.
Surprisingly, there have been no new additions to the team in the summer transfer window, however there’s still time for Moyes to make some new additions.
Chances may seem pretty low that they’ll beat Man City, but bookmakers offer decent odds on them winning and you never know how things will go in opening games!
Best Odds On A Draw: 11/2
The last time there was a draw between Man City and Sunderland was 3 years ago back in 2013, when they also played the match at the Etihad Stadium.
It seems unlikely they'll be a draw given the investment Man City have made in their team. But if you arfe betting on the result, Bet Victor offers best odds at 11/2.
