The big game on Sunday sees Manchester United hosting neighbours Manchester City at Old Trafford. City are enjoying their best start to a campaign in recent years, having beaten Arsenal in the previous match, with a more convincingly display than Manchester United’s against the Gunners.
In past years this fixture would’ve been easy to call, a home win without a doubt but City’s newly acquired wealth and talent may finally swing the balance of power from red half of the City to the blue half of Manchester. Looking at the latest odds on Betfair United seem to be a very short price at (1.64) and City are a very generous (6.20), my money is on the draw at (4.40) considering that 4 of the last 8 derby games have ended this way. You could also look at the Asian handicaps market backing City with a 1+ start gives odds of (1.89).
