There’s more than 3 points at stake in the Manchester Derby. Which club will give its fans the bragging rights in the city?
Here’s our Exchange breakdown and weekend recommendations:
Swansea City v Everton (12:45 BT Sport 1) – Sat
Swansea (2.56) are looking to win three league games in a row for the first time since the opening three games of the season.
It seems they have Bafetimbi Gomis finally hitting a bit of form scoring three in his last two league appearances, when he only managed two in his previous 25 league appearances.
They say form is temporary and class is permanent, hence why we are slightly sceptical about his recent exploits.
However, he does love scoring at home having got all his league goals at the Liberty Stadium. They face an Everton (3.05) side who have had a difficult season especially away from home having won only two of their last 10 on their travels (2W 8L).
*Recommended Trade: With both teams being possession-based we don’t expect a lot of goals in this match so see value in backing under 2 goals at 2.34 or laying over 2.5 goals at 2.38.
Man United v Man City (16:00 Sky Sports 1) – Sun
It must be a bitter pill to swallow for Man City (2.92) fans with the recent resurgence of Man United coinciding with their recent poor form.
With the title seeming out of reach, Manuel Pellegrini will want to boost morale and there’s no better opportunity then doing so than by beating their city rivals.
And having defeated Man United (2.64) in the last four league games the recent stats are definitely in their favour. Will it continue or will the in-form Wayne Rooney get the goal to break City hearts?
**Recommended Trade: After their upset against Crystal Palace, we can see Man City getting a result here. We see real value in backing a City victory at 2.4
Ladbrokes Exchange Multiples
Taking a look through the weekend action and weighing up the games we see a couple of trebles we see value in.
A West Brom, Southampton and Tottenham treble looks like real value at 5.77 but we have a sneaky feeling about QPR pulling out a result against Chelsea this weekend having looked pretty dangerous in attack recently.
Back a Southampton, Tottenham and QPR treble at 20.75 or switch that QPR result to a draw on that and get 12.24 .
