Sunderland v Manchester United Betting Odds at Bet365
Manchester United 4/9, Draw 10/3, Sunderland 13/2

Sunderland are in the position to ruin Manchester United’s defence of their title. The Black Cats are lined up for a mid table finish and nothing more, but they will still want to end the season with a bang in front of their home support. Those moments of tremendous excitement have been few and far between lately, with Sunderland having won just one of their last eight matches in the Premier League. However, with that being said, they have drawn five of that eight, so are still proving to be a stubborn side. That is what they are at the moment, and nothing more, and will be down to Martin O’Neill to try and bolster his forward options during the summer, because the base of a decent side is there. It has been the away form of the Black Cats which has stalled them so much, because at home, they are a tough nut to crack. O’Neill’s men have only lost one of their last eleven on home soil, but again, the last three at the Stadium of light have all ended in draws. Troubling for Martin O’Neill is that they have failed to score in four of their last six league outings as well, so there is a big need for some fire-power up front. The Sunderland defence doesn’t give too much away, and with the likes of John O’Shea and Wes Brown back there, those former United players could have a big part in United’s title fortunes on Sunday.

Manchester United know that their destiny is out of their hands. They blew the privilege of having that, thanks to their recent form. United have won two of the last five league matches, and that is where their league title defence has slipped away from them. After suffering defeats against Wigan and Manchester City, plus a draw against Everton when the Red Devils were two goals to the good at Old Trafford, looks set to leave the Old Trafford crew empty handed for this season. However, while there are still matches to be played and jobs to do, there is still a glimmer of a chance. Sir Alex Ferguson needs to see his men better what Man City can produce at home against QPR. So they need the R’s to do them a big favour on Sunday, while producing a result themselves, which is not looking easy. Manchester United’s last match was a 2-0 home win over Swansea City, but it was a very lack-lustre affair, and the body language of most of the United players signalled that they knew the title had gone. If United had thumped the Swans, it would have cut into Man City’s superior goal difference, but once again, Manchester United were flat.

An away fixture at the Stadium of Light is not a great fixture for the Red Devils and their title ambitions on its own. Manchester United only beat them earlier in the season at Old Trafford courtesy of Wes Brown own goal. But this is United and they have rattled off a fantastic away record for the season. They hold a W12 D3 L3 record on the road this season, and that is a 67% success rate, which is very solid. However, their away form has deserted them at the worst moment, because they have lost their last two straight, without getting on the score-sheet at that. Being that they are Manchester United, they will probably muster up something right at the death in order to do whatever it is that they can to push it to the wire. But they are simply not in control any more. Untied average two goals per game on the road this season, and their defence has still kept their stats at under a goal per game on the road. So very good all round, but is the confidence there? They must know that City failing to beat QPR is unlikely. So it is a matter of going out with a bit of pride, and just as side note, they have won 5-0 away from home three times this season. The goal difference behind City stands at 8.

Prediction: The Red Devils shouldn’t need motivating, but this is not an easy game. They will need to raise their game from what it has been lately, that is for sure, because this is the kind of match which could quickly develop into a stalemate. A Sunderland +1 Asian Handicap for 13/10 at Bet Victor is a tempting proposition in seeing them at least hold out for a draw.

Ryan Giggs (Manchester United)

Who are more famous at scoring dramatic late goals than Manchester United? That has been their forte for so many reasons, that never-say-die attitude which keeps them going until the final whistle. Well, United will look for some comfort back at Old Trafford on Sunday as they host Swansea in what is likely to be a must win game for them. United let their lead at the top of the Premier League slip to rivals Man City, as the Citizens beat the Red Devils 1-0 on Monday night. So now Sir Alex Ferguson sees his side trailing their greatest rivals by goal difference alone. Their task is simple. Keep winning and hope that Manchester City slip up in their final two matches. So United need to gun hard for Swansea on Sunday, and online bookmaker Paddy Power have a Money Back Special running for the big match at Old Trafford.

If there is a goal scored in the final five minutes of the match, then Paddy Power will refund lost stakes on any losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast single bets placed on the match. This provides a great deal of coverage for your big Manchester United v Swansea betting.

In the First Goalscorer market, Wayne Rooney is the red hot favourite at 13/5 to net first in the match, with team mates Javier Hernandez and Dimitar Berbatov back at 4/1. So plenty of value there and also in the Correct Score market where the Red Devils to win 2-0 is the favoured option at 11/2. Bets like these and any other in the aforementioned markets will be covered by the Paddy Power Money Back Special. Only bets placed pre-match qualify for the offer. The highly rated bookie Paddy Power offers a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account with them.

Manchester United v Swansea betting odds at Paddy Power
Man Utd 2/11, Draw 6/1, Swansea 12/1

Are there any more twists left in the Premier League title race? City had a healthy five point lead at one stage, United then had a super comfortable eight point lead and both of them blew it. They now stand neck and neck with only goal difference separating them. It is not often that you will see Manchester United choking when they are in such a strong position, but that is what has happened as they have won just one of their last four league matches. Everything looked so simple for them to defend their league title, but following an odd team selection by Sir Alex Ferguson which cost the Red Devils a 1-0 defeat at City on Monday, they are now the ones chasing again. United have dropped eight points out of the last possible twelve, which is all a big surprise. It started with an away defeat at Wigan, and then they blew a 4-2 lead at home against Everton to only earn a point, and then the final agony of losing for the second time this season to their rivals City.

But there is no-one better at getting out of tight situations, no-one better when things are on the line than Manchester United. They have to look to Wayne Rooney, who has netted in each of his last six home games to pull them through here. The likelihood is that Jonny Evans and Danny Welbeck will both miss the match, but at home, you would expect that United will have enough to see off Swansea. United’s home form is solid as ever, that recent draw against Everton snapping a seven match winning streak. It was also the first time in four home games that United had conceded a goal as well, so it looks like the result against the Toffees was an anomaly and nothing more. United have never lost to Swansea at Old Trafford and they need that trend to continue.

The Red Devils earned a tight 1-0 away win at the Liberty Stadium earlier in the season, but Swansea probably should have gotten something out of that match. Brendan Rodgers will bring Swansea to Old Trafford, looking for their first win there. Swansea’s record at Old Trafford is W0 D2 L6, and once again they go there as heavy underdogs. Swansea bring a fantastic style and flair to match day, they have superb passing and movement control, but they do lack a little bit of punch and quality up top where it matters. They are on a three match unbeaten streak, drawing two and winning one of their last three. The Swans haven’t won in their last three away matches though, losing away at Spurs and QPR before earning a point at Bolton. The Swans have style, but they may not have the substance to grind out a point here. With just one win in their last seven league outings, Swansea’s defence can be leaky but Manchester City will be hoping that it stays strong on Sunday.

BetFred

A while ago, when Manchester United were five points clear at the top of the Premier League, and seemingly on course to comfortably defend their title, we wrote that online bookmaker BetFred were paying out early on the Red Devils winning the league.

Did it seem like too much of a premature move back at the start of April?

Not really, as the challenge from City seemed to have fallen away and who would have bet against United letting a firm grip on the title slip? Well, Fred Done, owner of BetFred and a Manchester United fan, may just be ruing the move.

Manchester City climbed to the top of the summit again after beating Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium this week. That put the Citizens on top by a superior goal difference, with just two games to go. So now Fred Done may be sweating under his collar a bit, as his payout on Manchester United 2/5 shot on winning the league may end up costing him badly. But this isn’t the first time that he has paid out on a Premier League title early. In 1998, Done paid out on Manchester United when they were 12 points clear of Arsenal in April, only to see the Gunners come back and miraculously win the title.

Will Manchester City leave Done reeling again? The BetFred owner came out and apologised for perhaps jinxing Manchester United’s title hopes, as he tried to appease fans who were unhappy with him at the time. This is because the early pay out was seen as nothing more than a publicity stunt, the kind which also saw opportunists selling early Manchester United Champions t-shirts on line. So did Done tempt the football fate of United? Whatever, there is still hope for BetFred, as City have a tough away match against Newcastle to come, while United have to very winnable matches.

So Fred Done may not have jinxed the Red Devils. For now, at least.

Aguero (Manchester City)

Bookies will be bracing themselves for an influx of wager for the forthcoming Manchester City v Manchester United betting, which kicks off on Monday, April 30th.  The Manchester derby is now nicely set up as the title decider in the Premier League, with the Red Devils holding a three point lead over the Citizens. With just three matches left in the season, this is going to be the make or break moment for Roberto Mancini’s men at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester City have a superior goal difference over United, and therefore, should they win next Monday, will take top spot in the league with two games to go. If City lose however, the title will be heading back to Old Trafford again. A draw would really do City no favours, as they would still then require United to have another slip up.

Where is the title going to end up? Here we take a look at some of the betting options already available for Manchester City v Manchester United betting.

This Season
The two sides met back on October 23rd, 2011 and no-one expected the result which happened. City went and raided, no, pummelled Old Trafford into submission, as the Citizens thumped the Red Devils 6-1. Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko both netted a brace, while David Silva and Sergio Aguero also chipped in. The game was 1-0 at half time, but United lost Jonny Evans with a red card. The two sides also met in the FA Cup, and after City lost Vincent Kompany to a red card, United ran out 3-2 winners, despite a strong fightback from ten man City. It probably is going to be a close affair and therefore worth looking at the Winning Margin market for Man City v Man Utd betting. Man City to win by 1 Goal is trading at 10/3 with Bet365.

Red Card
So, from two meetings this season, there has been two red cards, both having detrimental effects. Neither team can afford to see red in this latest instalment of the Manchester derby. You should be able to find a price at 7/4 at BetFair for there being a sending off on Monday though.

Form
The race looked over a couple of fixtures ago, when Manchester City lost away at Arsenal, and the body language of the players completely showed that they knew their title challenge was over. They were a downbeat lot after coming off the pitch having suffered a 1-0 loss at the Emirates, but that defeat has relaxed the Citizens and they have gotten back to their best since then. Since that defeat, City have rattled off three straight wins, crushing West Brom and Norwich, before seeing off a battling Wolves at Molineux on Sunday. So, twelve goals in three games, and having conceded just one, it clearly shows what a difference carrying around title expectations make. When the pressure was lifted, City came back to life.

Manchester United, in contrast have only won just one of their last three matches before heading to the Etihad Stadium. After putting in their worst display of the season when they lost away at Wigan, they followed it up with a 4-0 home thrashing of Aston Villa, but then came the drama of last Sunday. After 60 minutes of play, United held a 3-1 lead over Everton at Old Trafford, and then after 70 minutes were 4-2 up, and that is a situation from which you don’t concede points.But United did, they wobble, as Everton’s Jelavic and Pienaar struck with late goals to earn a 4-4 draw, and robbed United of two points. So is it United feeling the pressure? The saving grace here, is that they have scored eight goals in their last two games. They have also still kept six clean sheets in their last eight. They are wobbling, but haven’t fallen down yet.

Manchester City v Manchester United Outright Winner Odds
Man City 11/10, Man Utd 12/5, Draw 5/2 at Bet365

Key Men
Sergio Aguero has now netted five goals in his last three matches, and his partnership with Carlos Tevez is flourishing. Former United player Tevez will be the centre of attention maybe in the build up, but the finishing touches of Aguero is going to be key for City on the day. They need clinical finishing.

For United, it is all going to be about one man. That is Wayne Rooney, who is carrying the goalscoring can for them. With Hernandez not contributing much this season, Rooney just carries on scoring. Rooney has scored in the last six at Old Trafford, but hasn’t found the back of the net away from home in the last three. He is the biggest threat though, by far. First Goalscorer Betting: Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and Wayne Rooney all 7/1 at Bet Victor.

The Run In
It is important to look at the Run In for each side after the Manchester derby, before getting all swept up in a possible Manchester City win. Even if they triumph in Manchester City v Manchester United betting, winning the title is no dead cert for them.

Man City remaining fixtures: After the Manchester derby, Roberto Mancini has to take his troops to the high-flying, in-form Newcastle United, which is not going to be an easy match at all, with the Magpies fighting for a top four finish. City then round out the season at home against relegation threatened QPR. While that home match against QPR should be three points, that tricky trip to Newcastle is a very tough call.

Man Utd remaining fixtures: United have the easier run in out of the two sides. After their visit to the Etihad Stadium, Sir Alex Ferguson faces a home match against Swansea, and then finish up with an away trip to Sunderland. You would expect the Red Devils to capitalise on the home game against Swansea, but Sunderland have the capacity to frustrate and shut teams out.

Premier League Title Winner Odds
Manchester United: 1/2 at Bet Victor
Manchester City: 7/4 at Bet365

BlueSquare

Will it be written into the annals of football history, that it was former Red Devils star Carlos Tevez who led Manchester City to their first Premier League title at the expense of Manchester United? After coming out of exile and apologising to the club for his behaviour, Tevez has formed a lethal partnership up front with Sergio Aguero since his return and City, who saw a five point lead at the top of the table disappear into an eight point deficit, have somehow found themselves just three points back of Sir Alex Ferguson’s men. So a win at home against the Red Devils on Monday would see City top the table on goal difference. How much of an influence will Carlos Tevez have. Will this be the moment where he repays City fans for his exile?

If Carlos Tevez scores the first goal of Manchester City v Manchester United betting, then online bookmaker Blue Square will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score, Half Time/Full Time and Player Special bets as free bets. That is a tremendous amount of coverage from the popular bookie for the big Manchester derby title decider. It means that you can look at markets like the First Goalscorer, where Sergio Aguero is priced at 7/1 to break the deadlock, while Wayne Rooney is also trading at the same mark. We saw a thrilling 6-1 triumph for City at Old Trafford earlier in the season, but a more conservative 1-0 win for the Citizens is trading at 8/1 with Blue Square in the Correct Score market. Bets like these and more will be refunded if they lost, but Tevez nets first.

Online Bookmaker Blue Square offer a free £25 bet for new customers registering an account with them. The bookie will match up the value of your first stake on a new account with a free bet, up to the maximum value of £25. That provides some great free betting cash to get started with on your new Blue Square account.

Premier League Betting

Online bookmaker Paddy Power are running a Money Back Special for Manchester United v Everton betting. The popular online bookie are covering the match with a Money Back special, as one of the league’s most consistent teams takes on the title challengers. Manchester United firmly have the league title within their grasp again, holding a five point advantage over Manchester City heading into the weekend. However should they slip up at home against Everton and Manchester City win against Wolves, then the title race would be back on, because there is the Manchester derby still to come at the end of the month. As for Everton, they are playing for pride of a top seven finish, and to finish above rivals Liverpool in the league. However, the Toffees don’t have a great record at Old Trafford.

If there are four or more goals scored in the game, then Paddy Power will refund any losing stakes placed on the First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, correct Score and score-cast markets. So the Paddy Power Manchester United v Everton betting promotion gives you a great bit of coverage. In the First Goalscorer market for example, Wayne Rooney is 5/2 favourite to get on the score-sheet first. United beat Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park earlier in the season, and the same result is trading at 6/1 for Sunday in the Correct Score market. So there is great value around in the markets covered by the Paddy Power Money Back Special.

Paddy Power offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account with them. The bookie will match the value of your first stake on a new account with a free bet, up to the maximum value of £50. This gives new customers a great bit of free cash to get started with!

Manchester United v Everton betting odds
Manchester United to win: 4/11 at Paddy Power
Draw: 9/2 at SkyBet
Everton to win: 10/1 at Totesport

The Red Devils find themselves in a position of just having to keep winning in order to defend their title. Fortunately for them, winning is something that they do very well, with twelve wins in their last fourteen Premier League matches. Manchester United just get the job done and you can’t argue that. At Goodison Park earlier in the season, they were heavily out-played, heavily out-shot and yet they still managed to come away with a 1-0 win. Sir Alex Ferguson has brushed aside the challenge of Manchester City and will know that a win against Everton on Sunday will pretty much secure the title for them. Wayne Rooney has been in sparkling form at home, netting in each of the last six games at Old Trafford, scoring eight goals in that terrific run. So Rooney is worth looking at in the goalscorer markets. United are now on a seven match winning streak at Old Trafford.

Just to back up the great work that Rooney is doing, United are so strong at the back. They have kept six clean sheets in their last seven Premier League matches to take control of the title race. There was that wobble at Wigan when they lost 1-0 back on the 11th of April, but they responded from that with a 4-0 win over Aston Villa. So the wheels certainly haven’t come off, and with such a strong home record, they should go on and pick up three points which takes them closer to the defence of their title. At home, Manchester United have a W14 D1 L2 record for the season and if anyone is expecting an upset, it is worth nothing that Manchester United have lost only once in eighteen Premier League home matches against Everton. Their record speaks for itself, and out of those eighteen matches, United have won fifteen.

Everton don’t relish trips to Old Trafford, and they have only scored two goals in their last seven visits there. The Toffees haven’t managed a goal in their last three run outs at Old Trafford either, so they are firm underdogs for this fixture. However, David Moyes does have Everton playing well again this season, and they have the added touch of class up front in Nikica Jelavic. After losing out in the FA Cup semi final to rivals Liverpool, all Everton have left to play for, is to try and finish above the Reds and win the battle of pride. Everton are actually in pretty good shape at the moment, unbeaten in the last four with three wins in that run. More surprisingly perhaps, is that Everton have scored two or more goals in each of their last four matches in the Premier League, and that isn’t something you associated with the Toffees. Everton have only lost one of their last six on the road in the Premier League, bit trips to Old Trafford are a different thing. They just don’t seem to have any answer there for whatever the Red Devils produce. One win in eighteen league attempts at Old Trafford paints a sorry picture for the Toffees.

Sir Alex Ferguson

Manchester United v Aston Villa betting sees a return to action for Ashley Young against his former club. Young, who was ineffectively withdrawn on Wednesday night as United suffered a shock reverse at Wigan, will no doubt be keen to impress against his former employers. Popular online bookmaker Ladbrokes have a Money Back Special running for Manchester United v Aston Villa betting, all surrounding the presence of Ashley Young. If Young scores at Anytime during the game on Sunday, Ladbrokes will refund all losing First Goalscorer bets. This provides a great bit of coverage on the popular and highly valuable market.

In the Manchester United v Aston Villa first Goalscorer market, Wayne Rooney, who was below par against Wigan as well, is favourite to open the scoring at 2/1, while team mates Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck are both out at 3/1. So strong option from Manchester United, who pretty much dominate this market, with Villa’s Gabriel Agbonlahor way out at 12/1, representing the visitors’ best showing. Wayne Rooney incidentally, is on a four game scoring streak at Old Trafford, having netted six times in those four matches, so is clearly the top option. So head to the First Goalscorer market and take the bit of coverage, should Ashley Young pop up and punish his former club.

Popular online bookmaker Ladbrokes offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account. Simply follow the link here to get a special registration code and after you have signed up, Ladbrokes will match the value of your first stake on the new account with a free bet, up to the maximum value of £50.

Manchester United v Aston Villa Betting Odds at Ladbrokes
Man Utd 2/9, Draw 5/1, Aston Villa 11/1

Well, Manchester United still have a five point cushion at the top of the league and with just five matches left to play in the season, their recent anomaly against Wigan, probably won’t stop them losing the title. Sir Alex Ferguson was visually livid with his side’s performance at Wigan, and even Wayne Rooney got pulled from the action in an attempt to get things moving. That was probably one of United’s worst performances in the league this season, and it ended an eight game winning streak for them. While it came as a surprise, the Red Devils now have back to back home matches to firmly put their stamp back on the Premier League title again. They haven’t lost their grip on it, and because they should comfortably pick up three home points on Sunday, it will likely be business as usual. Paul Scholes will likely come back into the starting line up after being rested, and his influence has been immeasurable since his return. United have won all nine matches which Scholes has started this season. Whenever United fall down like that, you expect them to get back up quickly. Their home form has been outstanding, winning the last six on the bounce, and look unlikely to falter.

Aston Villa meanwhile are probably just nervously looking over their shoulder at the relegation zone, which is only six points beneath them. However, Alex McLeish’s men are expected to pick up any points on Sunday, and while it’s unlikely, if the teams beneath them pick up form, then they could be sucked in closer to the drop zone. Aston Villa don’t give all that much away, but they are lacking a lot of fire-power after losing Darren Bent for a big portion of the season. McLeish likes to keep things tight and unadventurous, as is his accustomed style. There has only been one win in the last ten league matches for Villa now, and they lost 1-0 at home against Manchester United earlier in the season. A draw at Old Trafford, like the resilient one they earned at Anfield over the Easter weekend would be a massive point for them, but that looks unlikely. Villa are likely to feel the brunt of a Manchester United backlash on Sunday, and with Villa winning just one in the last 26 visits to Old Trafford, anything other than Villa extending their streak without a win to five matches, is highly unlikely.

The busy Easter fixture list may well be upon us, and while it could be a huge weekend in terms of where the Premier League title may end up, for one bookmaker, it is already over bar the shouting. Online Bookmaker BetFred is already paying out its customers on Manchester United winning the league, despite seven matches still to go, including a Manchester derby at the end of April. United do hold a five point advantage and has what appears to be an easy home fixture on Sunday, while City travel to London to face Arsenal, and that has been enough for bookie BetFred to decide that the title is heading back to Old Trafford and nowhere else.

But is there a hidden agenda behind all this? Is it merely a publicity stunt, because BetFred owner Fred Done, is an avid Manchester United supporter, and the move could be a big gloat in the direction of the Red Devil’s neighbours. This is a smart bit of promotional business by BetFred, and it is not the first time that they have decided to pay out early on the outright winner market. Fred paid out early back in the 1998 season when United held a twelve point lead over Arsenal, only to see the Gunners come back and take the title by a point. BetFred lost over half a million pounds on that occasion.

BetFred did this last season too in April, as they paid out on Manchester United winning the title then as well, which didn’t back fire. Fred Done is pretty confident that the Red Devils, who are on a seven match winning streak, are simply going to coast to the title again.
