Ladbrokes are offering the biggest odds available on a host of bets for this Sunday’s eagerly anticipated Manchester derby.
There’s no-one offering better odds on Manchester United or City to win, the correct score, half-time/full time results or the first player to score markets.
With both teams in the top two and undefeated this season, there’s more than pride at stake, which makes for some extremely tempting punts on these top odds.
City have only beaten United once at Old Trafford in the Premier League era but with the likes of David Silva and Sergio Aguero showing Roberto Mancini’s side are genuine title contenders, a bet on City to win at 13/5 could lead to a decent payout.
However, if you want to play things a little safer, then United can be backed at a very decent 21/10 to win – and it’s especially tempting considering United haven’t lost at home in the Premier League since a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea in May 2010.
The game not only boats the Premier League’s top two teams, but also the top two goalscorers.
Aguero and Wayne Rooney have hit the net eight and nine times respectively in the league this season and are both amongst the favourites to be first goalscorer.
Rooney – who is United’s penalty taker – is favourite at 6/1 to find the net first, while Aguero can be backed at 8/1 to open the scoring at Old Trafford.
With both players scoring in the Champions League during the week, a bet on either of them to be first goalscorer could lead to a very big win – especially with the brilliant Ladbrokes odds available.
