Man United v Man City tips – get big odds about a Red Devils win

The EFL Cup might not be a huge priority when the football season starts although Manchester City have made a habit of winning the League Cup under Pep Guardiola in recent seasons and the Spaniard will want to continue lifting this piece of silverware which simply involves winning a small handful of matches along the way.

The Citizens were able to overcome Arsenal shortly before Christmas when winning 4-1 at the Emirates and have now been handed a Manchester derby for an EFL Cup semi-final fixture which is exactly the same as what happened last term when City won 3-1 at Manchester United before the Red Devils claimed a 1-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

What Are the Latest Man United v Man City Betting Odds?

Despite the fact that Manchester United are the home side and have shown some recent excellent form, they are the betting outsiders to win this derby game where the winner will go through to a Wembley final to clash with either Tottenham or Brentford at the national stadium.

The Red Devils have bookmaker odds as big as 11/4 that they overcome their arch-rivals in this clash, with United looking like an attractive prospect in this clash and they have been scoring plenty of goals on a game-by-game basis recently, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team having lots of attacking weaponry.

Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes have been especially prominent, while Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani are all available to line up in this clash, with United still capable of challenging for top honours this season and they have to be respected.

Why Are Manchester City Betting Favourites to Win?

Manchester City are going to be well supported in the betting market and their latest betting odds are 10/11 although you might be able to get even money with one of the top bookmakers closer to kick-off if you compare football betting odds and find the value.

Should you be able to get even money about City, it’s weighing up whether you think it’s viable to get double money and a nice profit about a team who have usually had the edge over their opponents over the past few years, although United often raise their game for derby encounters.

Guardiola is sure to field a strong team for this stage of the competition, although the team were only able to claim a goalless draw at Old Trafford in a recent Premier League clash where chances created were scarce and it was no surprise that either side couldn’t hit the net.

What Are the Best Bets for Man United v Man City?

We were immediately drawn to the Over/Under 2.5 Goals betting market where the bookmaker odds often reflect the fact that people want to back a high-scoring match between Manchester United and Manchester City, although the opposite could be true in this circumstance.

You can get betting odds as big as 11/10 that there are Under 2.5 Goals in this Manchester derby and that means we win with our bet if there are two goals or less scored during the ninety minutes. There’s a strong chance that the teams could cancel each other out again.

After all, winning silverware is a chief priority for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the chance for his side to be led out at Wembley will be an attractive proposition, although he knows that United can’t let down their guard against dangerous opponents.

Similarly, Manchester City are no longer a swashbuckling team under Guardiola and perhaps we might see another goalless draw in this clash which can be backed at big betting odds.

There is also a betting market called “To Qualify” where you can get 6/4 about Manchester United going through and there is 1/2 that City get the job done and make their well-worn travel plans for Wembley.
