But not even the football genius that is Sam Allardyce will be able to stop City who were Betting Spy’s tip for the top way back last Summer.
Pelligrini’s team have closed the season out in ruthless style – led by the imperious Yaya Toure who is simply a force of nature.
West Ham’s only hope of stopping the big man could be locking him in the dressing room.
But he’d still be quicker than anyone in the Hammer’s midfield while dragging a door.
Liverpool dreamers and East End optimists can get 18/1 on a West Ham win.
But the three league and cup fixtures so far this season don’t lie with City winning 12-1 on aggregate.
It could be a bit of a damp squib for Sky on “Super Sunday” with the title and relegation races all but sewn-up.
So let’s spice things up with a decent long shot to see out the punting season in style.
Spurs were a shambles at Upton Park last week and look like they can’t finish the season fast enough.
Aston Villa are the visitors to White Hart Lane and they look too big at 6/1 for an away win.
Paul Lambert’s men were tonked during the week by Man City.
But they held out gamely for an hour and are well set-up to hit teams on the break.
The Spurs crowd could well get frustrated with similar tactics and Villa could take advantage of any local unrest to sneak a winner on the counter.
It’s been a decent season at Betting Spy with another year of tips finishing in the black.
We’ll take a break for a couple of weeks but will be back to preview the World Cup and other major sporting events throughout the summer.
