Sports betting fans know that matches don’t come much bigger than a Manchester derby and while the Citizens are making the most of the transitional period at Old Trafford, Manchester United v Manchester City betting still offers a huge amount of excitement.
New Ladbrokes customers looking to make use of their free bets will find over 100 markets available on the UK bookmaker’s betting site and with the two sides going 19 games without a 0-0 bore draw the match looks guaranteed to see goals.
City have won three of the last four ties and look a good bet to improve that record but one man out to thwart their chances will be Wayne Rooney.
Premier League betting is never an exact science but with 11 goals and 12 wins from 24 games against City it is clear United’s chances rest on the shoulders of their talismanic forward.
United’s other front men – Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez – have just three career goals against the noisy neighbours between them, which may prompt many to seek other online football betting options.
Anytime Goal Scorer is one of the most popular online betting markets on the website and with City’s attackers saving their best for games against United there are plenty of tempting prospects.
Sergio Aguero has netted five times against the champions in just six games, while EdinDzeko has bagged as many from seven appearances and neither striker has scored more goals against any other Premier League club.
David Silva has also netted twice against City’s biggest rivals and while Alvaro Negredo is yet to open his account, he has set up two strikes against the Red Devils and could prove the difference when these sides meet again.
