Sky Bet predict Manchester City 11/10 to win 'unmissable' Manchester derby

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 30, 2012) - Manchester City are 11/10 favourites with Sky Bet to beat Manchester United in one of the most anticipated Manchester derbies for years.

A win for Roberto Mancini's men in Monday Night Football's 'unmissable' clash would put them top of the table on goal difference, with City currently 7/4 to win the title.

United are 12/5 to avenge their 6-1 humiliation at Old Trafford earlier in the season with a victory at the Etihad Stadium, while the draw is available at 5/2.

Sir Alex Ferguson's men gained some measure of revenge by knocking City out of the FA Cup in January, with a 3-2 victory adding to the goal glut in recent encounters between the sides.

With this in mind, the online betting company has a number of specials available for the Manchester derby, including: 'What If… It's Unmissable', which offers 4/1 on both sides to score two or more goals.

Sky Bet Football Risk manager Chris McKenzie said: "Punters have relentlessly been backing United at 12/5 all week and I fully expect this trend to continue.

"United have never been such a big price to beat their arch rivals and punters are thinking it too big a price to miss out on. United know how to win the league, coming good at the right time of the season year in, year out."

He added: "Is this the game that hammers another nail in the coffin of the Premier League title race? Our customers certainly think so!"
