Manchester City v Aston Villa Betting Preview

There is still a massively tight battle for positions in the top four and Man City will be hoping that home advantage can at least get them into an automatic Champions League spot. They head into the weekend in fourth place and with ground to make up on Arsenal and Man Utd. They run into a Villa side who are growing in confidence and stature and won’t make things easy for the Citizens at the Etihad.

Manchester City v Aston Villa Betting Tips

Is this a good time to be playing Aston Villa? The Citizens are still running as heavy favourites for the game despite the upturn in fortunes of Villa. City are in great home form, having won their last four Premier League matches on the bounce at the Etihad and not having conceded a goal in any of those. The Citizens have scored at least two goals in each of those four home victories as well, and with a 2-0 win over Villa earlier in the season, it’s not worth deserting Manuel Pellegrini’s men here. Manchester City have won more Barclays Premier League games (20) and scored more goals (65) v Aston Villa than against any other team.

Sergio Aguero is back in goal scoring form and has now reached 20 goals in two different Premier League seasons. Aguero is running as 3/1 favourite in the Paddy Power first goalscorer market. Yaya Toure has scored in his last three Premier League appearances against Aston Villa. City are looking for their fifth clean sheet in a row at home and could be worth considering as a even money quote to win to nil. City have won their last two home games against Villa by a 5-0 and a 4-0 scoreline and with a total of 32 goals in the last nine meetings between these two it is probably worth having a punt for the game to go over 2.5 goals.

Villa may be in the FA Cup final, but there is still a little bit of work to secure their Premier League status. They are four points clear only of the drop zone, but with a W3 D1 L2 record in their last six, there is renewed hope of staying up. They have won two of their last three away games in the top flight, both victories coming with a clean sheet. Christian Benteke can’t stop scoring at the moment and he has now has scored nine goals in nine competitive games under Tim Sherwood. Huge end of season contribution from him and he is a 7/2 quote in the anytime goalscorer market. Aston Villa have scored the same number of league goals under Tim Sherwood this season (12 in eight games) as they managed under Paul Lambert (12 in 25 games). You still have to take into consideration the fact they have lost seven of their last nine away games in the Premier League.

Manchester City v Aston Villa Betting Odds

Man City 1/4, draw 5/1, Aston Villa 11/1

Manchester City v Aston Villa Predictions

Villa have only scored six second half goals this season, so if City are in front at half time in the game, it will be hard to see the visitors turn things around. Even with everything going on with Villa at the moment punters will have to be pretty confident in City’s home form to get the job done. The Citizens look a decent bet to win by a two goal margin.

Manchester City v West Ham Betting Preview

It has been a miserable old time of things for Manchester City and boss Manuel Pellegrini lately. If the Citizens lose this, then the likelihood of Pellegrini being out of a job will increase massively. City have been shockingly poor on the road lately, but they are in decent nick at home. There should be a comfortable three points on offer at home against a West Ham side who aren’t in any kind of winning form to be troubling the Citizens at the Etihad.

There are some great football betting options to take at online betting site Bet365. You can earn up to a 100% win bonus on successful accas built from Europe’s top matches, while enjoying 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance on the correct score, scorecast and half time/full time markets. A new feature of Bet365’s football betting is their partial cash-out option where you can cash out an active bet early, but don’t have to take it all out, just a portion of it, while leaving the rest riding on the outcome. New customers registering an account with online betting site Bet365 can get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester City v West Ham Betting Tips

The last time that Manchester City lost three Premier League matches in the space of one calendar month, was back in November 2008. They are two defeats in during April and they head into Sunday’s fixture against a side whom they have already lost against this season. West Ham beat City 2-1 at the Boleyn Ground earlier in the season, but the Hammers have never managed to do the double over the Citizens in a single season. So that should mean City are alright in this one. City have crumbled to four defeats on the bounce outside the Etihad, but at home, their form is strong, having won their last three in a row.

Their last three wins at the Etihad have each been with a clean sheet as well, so that should be a good option at online betting site Bet365. It has been a pretty rough 2015 for City, and if the  season had started on Boxing Day then Man City would be ninth, 17 points behind leaders Arsenal. They have lost five league games during 2015 and that is one more than they suffered all of last year. The Citizens have won each of their last four at home against the Hammers and the last two have come with a clean sheet against the Londoners. City fans will have been delighted to see Sergio Aguero snap his goal drought last weekend, and he is 4/7 with online betting site Bet365 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Wilfried Bony is trading at a price of 6/5.

The Hammers have been having a rough year as well. Their slump started back at Christmas and since then they have won just two of their last fifteen Premier League matches played. Neither of those wins happened to be on the road eight, and the Hammers are without a win in their last eight Premier League away games (D4 L4). Sam Allardyce’s men have failed to score in four of their last eight on the road as well, and they haven’t managed to score more than one goal in any of their last five games played. They have only managed to do so once in their last eleven incidentally. West Ham’s form is W1 D1 L4 in their last six and the goals just aren’t there from Sam Allardyce’s men.

Manchester City v West Ham Betting Odds

Man City 1/4, Draw 11/2, West Ham 10/1

Manchester City v West Ham Predictions

No reason to desert the Citizens and home and the best value on them is seeing them take a win to nil as well, because West Ham don’t have that much to offer going forward. Even if City don’t play all that well, a piece of magic from Sergio Aguero or David Silva should be enough to put this game to bed. City’s overall home record of W10 D3 L2 stands up enough to take a win over the Hammers.

Football News

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp announced on Wednesday that he will be leaving his post with the German giants at the end of the season. That naturally sparked a flurry of interest in the next Manchester City manager market, where a surge of money came in on Klopp being the one to replace Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad next season.

Online bookmaker Skybet reported a huge surge in action on the market after Klopp’s announcement. Given the downward spiral that Manchester City seem to be in under Manuel Pellegrini, the latest failure being demolished by rivals Manchester United, it has left them 12 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea in their title defence.

It hasn’t been all rosy for Klopp with Borussia Dortmund this season though, winning just nine of their 28 Bundesliga matches so far. They have improved dramatically lately to climb up towards the middle of the battle and they did reach the German Cup final last week.

Klopp’s next club odds at Skybet:

Man City 8/11, Real Madrid 4/1, Arsenal 5/1, PSG 10/1, Liverpool 10/1

When Borussia Dortmund announced that they would be holding a press conference on Wednesday morning, Sky Bet reported a run of bets on Klopp to be the next Manchester City manager, prompting them to cut his odds from 11/10 to 8/11 by mid-afternoon.

Sky Bet’s Chris Spicer said: “We opened up betting on the next Manchester City manager on Sunday with Carlo Ancelotti considered a soft favourite amid suggestions that the Italian’s days at Real Madrid are numbered.

“However, we now have a clear favourite with Klopp attracting all the recent money, prompting us to constantly cut his price. We also priced up the chances of Pellegrini staying at City but all the interest has been in his time to come to an end this summer, with odds on remaining now out to 7/2.”

Supporters of both sides in the Manchester derby will be expecting a high level of intensity, and the neutrals will be expecting to see plenty of blood and thunder for Manchester United v Manchester City betting. There is no love lost between the two north west rivals of course and it could be one of the best spectacles of the season. The three points on offer in the game could be crucial in securing a top three finish this term.

With the passions and temperaments running high, will that spill over into a rash of bookings and perhaps even a dismissal. There will likely be a wealth of meaty tackles flying around in what should be a big midfield battle at Old Trafford.

Paddy Power

Everyone is looking forward to Sunday’s Manchester derby from Old Trafford. The already competitive rivalry has been ramped up for this second meeting of the season by the fact that the points on offer could have a huge bearing in the settling of a top three finish. United may be able to relegate City to nothing more than a fourth place finish for the season with three points against their rivals on Sunday.

City though have the head to head form in their favour. They have won the last four Premier League Manchester derby matches, including their 1-0 win over the Red Devils earlier in the season. However, City really to wake up after losing their last three away games in the top flight, and having taken just one win in their last six outside of the Etihad. Will their away day blues continue as they make the short trip to Old Trafford?

New customers at Paddy Power can get enhanced odds of 8/1 on either Man Utd or Man City to win, or back the draw at enhanced odds of 10/1.

Premier League Betting

It is the battle of the Manchester giants. Sitting in the red corner are the Red Devils who have strung together some great form as they head towards the end of the season. In the blue corner you have Manchester City who have seen their season simply fall apart on all fronts because of some poor road performances. It was the Citizens who took a 1-0 home win over United in the first meeting of the season, their fourth league win in a row over the Red Devils.

However, it is looking as if the Old Trafford crew are ready to bite back. United are on a five match winning streak in the flight and are gunning for a big three points at home which would see them move four points clear of City. United are just getting things together at the right time it would seem. They are looking more settled at the back, key players like Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini are influencing games massively and they have won their last five in a row at Old Trafford.

United haven’t had any problems scoring goals at Old Trafford this season and in nine of their last ten home fixtures in the top flight, United have scored two or more goals. So big returns and with Wayne Rooney having scored in each of his last three home games in the Premier League, they have a man in form up front, running at 7/5 in the anytime goalscorer market. He could be the star of the show, with City’s front man Sergio Aguero currently on a six match goal drought in the English top flight.

The pieces just aren’t clicking together for the Citizens at the moment. They are still good in possession and move the ball around nicely, but there has been little end product and three consecutive away defeats has seen their hopes of retaining their league title disappear. City have won just one of their last six Premier League away games, now and in all competitions they have managed one victory in their last seven away from the Etihad, losing their last four in a row and failing to score in two of those defeats.

Tough times for Manuel Pellegrini who is under pressure and unlike Manchester United, he has seen his key players fail to make their marks on games. Not only is Sergio Aguero misfiring, but Yaya Toure seems a defensive liability in the middle of the park, while the backbone of their league title last season, the centre half pairing of Martin Demichelis and Vincent Kompany has looked lost at the back and has offered little protection to Joe Hart. If it weren’t for a brilliant season from Hart, City could well be a lot worse off at the moment.

The last four clashes at Old Trafford have all gone over 2.5 goals so there is value in looking at options like both teams to score and over 2.5 goals with online bookmaker Bet Victor. Favouritism should be going towards Manchester United, with the Citizens having lost five of their last seven games played in all competitions. The Citizens look a beat brow-beaten while United are brimming with confidence and have gained some great successes recently against Spurs and Liverpool in high profile games by simply getting on the front foot and taking the game to their opponents.

Manchester Derby 12th April 2015 odds & prediction

Manchester United are the better value in the outright market at 8/5 compared to the 9/5 riding on the backs of Manchester City. The draw is a 12/5 quote with Bet Victor. Would expect the three points to be going the way of the Red Devils, because their home form trumps City’s away form by a massive degree.

Manchester United v Manchester City Betting Preview

What a game this should be. Manchester City think its a great time to play their rivals, but with the Citizens looking out of sorts, it is the Red Devils who will be favourites to take the win in the eyes of many punters. Louis van Gaal’s men are in good form and starting to play some good attacking football. With City’s defence looking disinterested and disjointed, United could push their rivals out of a top three finish.

Things don’t get much better for your Man Utd v Man City betting than being able to pick up a free bet for the game. Customers, both new and existing ones can take advantage of a great free bet offer from online betting site Paddy Power. Place a pre match £20 wager and then you will get a free £5 bet to use in-play after kick-off. Fantastic way to try and boost your returns from the Manchester derby!

Manchester United v Manchester City Betting Tips

This one could be all about Manchester United leaving rivals City floundering in the race for a top three finish. United do look to be growing in stature a bit and will be out on Sunday looking for their sixth league win on the bounce. It’s been some great form from them and they have won 13 of their last 15 home matches in the top flight. However, they have been on the losing end in the last four Manchester derby matches in the Premier League and in their last three home games against City they have shipped a horrible eleven goals. Pretty tough to stomach for United fans, but there is renewed hope that they will turn the tide on the weekend.

When United went to the Etihad earlier in the season, they look devoid of fight and organisation and were blown away. However, that has all changed now, and they look far more settled and are actually getting some fluid attacking momentum going. Wayne Rooney has scored in each of his last three league home games and looks in great form. Eleven of his twelve league goals this season have come at Old Trafford. He has only scored three of his eight Premier League goals against City at Old Trafford though (his last three against them have been at the Etihad) but still looks value as a 2/1 anytime goalscorer quote at Paddy Power. United have taken wins over Spurs and Liverpool recently, so have performed in the high profile games. A great W13 D1 L2 home record this season should carry them through.

The Citizens clearly have some problems. Their defensive rock that was the partnership of Demichelis and Kompany is crumbling. They have a midfield which is unwilling to defence and they are staring down the barrel of their fourth away defeat in a row in the league. The Citizens have won just one of their last six road games in the top flight, so form is clearly against them. Sergio Aguero is misfiring badly at the moment and is now on a six match goal drought in the league. His last goal in the top fight came back on February 21st. That having been said, he has a good scoring record against United, having netted four in his last three. Aguero is 7/5 in the anytime goalscorer market.

It is more than likely that the Manchester United v Manchester City betting clash will produce goals. It is likely to be open, so you can comfortably look for both teams to score and go over 2.5 goals. United have had great success against Spurs and Liverpool recently by getting on the front foot. If that’s their approach, they should rattle City, but of course be left open a little at the back. City are looking for a huge lift, but with the key components not working for them at the moment, it may be hard to get another one over on their rivals.

Manchester United v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man Utd 8/5, Man CIty 9/5, Draw 9/4

Manchester United v Manchester City Predictions

Given how United’s home form stacks up against City’s away from at the moment the three points should be going to the Old Trafford crew. They just look sharper and more confident at the moment to be able to put City to the sword. Likely to be a win in a game that goes over 2.5 goals.

Paddy Power

It is the second Manchester derby of the season and what a game of high importance it is going to be. The Red Devils have strung together some great winning form, having been victorious in their last five league outings and sitting in third place heading into the weekend, hold a one point supremacy over their rivals.

City have seen their hopes of retaining their league title slip away thanks to some horrendous form on the road. Consecutive away defeat against Liverpool, Burnley and Crystal Palace have seen the Citizens fall from grace and find themselves in a big battle to finish above fourth. A defeat at Old Trafford would make that task a whole lot more difficult, but the Citizens are looking for their fifth league win on the bounce against the Red Devils so they do have form in the Manchester derby.

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Betting Preview

Well, Manchester City will be feeling the pressure now. Good wins for Arsenal and Manchester United over the weekend sees the Citizens going into their match at Selhurst Park sitting down in fourth place. Only a win will move them back up into second, and a title defence looks nothing more than a distant dream for them at the moment. With a huge match against rivals United next weekend, City need three points here.

The first goalscorer market should be pretty active for this one, and you can double your odds on the market at online bookmaker Boylesports. Place a first goalscorer selection on the game and if the player you selected opens the scoring in the first 20 minutes of action then you will be paid out double your original first goalscorer odds by Boylesports! Great offer and new customers registering an account with them can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Betting Tips

Well, the Eagles have found some good form and would move up into 11th in the league with a win against the Citizens on Monday evening. Back to back wins over QPR and Stoke have seen them in a positive mood, having taken three wins in their last four. It is the kind of form that could upset a City side who have been shaky on the road lately. It has been a fantastic job done by Alan Pardew, and under him, Crystal Palace have won 19 points in 10 Premier League games, two more than they won in their previous 20 PL games in 2014-15 (17 under Millen/Warnock). Not only that, Pardew has won more points from losing positions as a Premier League manager this season than any other (20 points total, 10 each with Newcastle and Palace). That means they are watching live in-play for comeback value.

You could have a seriously look at both teams to score for a price of 4/5 with online bookmaker Boylesports, as Crystal Palace haven’t managed to pick up a clean sheet in any of their last eleven Premier League home fixtures. Palace aren’t that much of a reliable side at home because they have won just two of their last eight at Selhurst Park in the top flight (W2 D2 L4). Not only that, they are on a really poor run of form against Manchester City, the Eagles having lost the last seven in a row against the Citizens in all competitions. That run includes a 3-0 loss they suffered in December at the Etihad in the Premier League. Even with their decent form, clean sheets are at a premium when it comes to the Eagles, so they go as underdogs.

City’s last away game saw them lose 1-0 at Burnley and that followed a crucial defeat at Liverpool. So in total, Manchester City have won just one of their last five away from home now. Their hopes of retaining their league title have pretty much gone, and even the great Sergio Aguero is struggling at the moment. The Argentine has now failed to score in his last 466 minutes of competitive football for Man City in all competitions. Still, he is 4/1 favourite in the first goalscorer market. City have been weak through the middle of the park lately, and with defensive issues largely surrounding Vincent Kompany, are they a fading force? David Silva continues to be their bright spark and he is running at a 3/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market.

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 4/6, Draw 3/1, Crystal Palace 9/2

Crystal Palace v Manchester City Predictions

After their loss at Burnley, can you trust City enough on the road at the moment to pick up the three points that they need to climb back into second place in the league? It may be hard for punters to do that, especially at such a short price. Look for goals in the game as City need to press hard for three points here. Go over 2.5 goals and back both teams to score in what could potentially be a thriller.

Premier League Betting

The Premier League Golden Boot this season was expected to come down to a duel between Chelsea’s Diego Costa and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero. While the two established hitmen are well in the mix, they were caught and even surpassed on the weekend by young England forward Harry Kane.

The Tottenham striker, who has made incredible returns for the Lilywhites this season, bagged his first ever Premier League hattrick to help Spurs get back to winning ways in the top flight, as they saw off the relegation-threatened Leicester 4-3 at White Hart Lane.

Kane has been moved to 11/8 favourite to win the Golden Boot at online betting site Ladbrokes. That has left Chelsea’s Diego Costa, who picked up another hamstring injury against Hull on the weekend at 7/4, with Sergio Aguero a 2/1 shot to land the crown. Kane sits on nineteen goals, level with Costa (who netted in Chelsea’s win over the Tigers), with Sergio Aguero back on 17 and QPR’s Charlie Austin on 15.

New customers registering an account with online betting site Ladbrokes can enjoy a free £25 bet. The bookmaker will match the value of your first stake on the account with a free bet.
