Manchester City Vs. Borussia Dortmund Total Points

The total in this game might seem as if the Over could hit easy, however, Manchester City has actually only hit the Over in two of their last ten games and has also pushed the Over in two games as well. Something that helps their case for hitting the Under even more is the fact that in six of their last ten games, they have held their opponents scoreless

Dortmund, on the other hand, could make a strong case for the Over here as they have hit it in six of their last ten games. The one thing to be cautious of here before betting on the Over because of Dortmund is the fact that they are heavy underdogs and will likely not be controlling the pace of the game. With that said, bettors could look towards the Under for a nice payout.
