William Hill expect the Manchester derby to attract more bets than any other Premier League game ever. In the hour before kick off, Hills predict that up to 8,000 bets will be placed on the game. Manchester City are the 5/4 favourites to win the match, with United 5/2 and the draw 2/1.
This is without doubt the biggest Manchester Derby ever and we are expecting betting interest to go through the roof, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly. We are fully expecting this to be the busiest match, in terms of bets placed, in the history of the Premier League.
Hills are enhancing the price of both Rooney and Tevez to open the scoring both from 7/1 to 8/1. For Tevez to score and City to win is 4/1 while Rooney to score anytime and United to win is 5/1.
After the ignominy of losing 6-1 at home the last time these two sides met, United are 500/1 to return the favour, while City are 250/1 to win by the same scoreline again.
Despite the home advantage for the derby, Manchester United are 4/9 to lift the Premier League trophy, with City 7/4.
William Hill mobile is also offering a money back special to all customers whereby should your first scorer selection score second instead, you will receive your money back in the form of a free bet (up to and including the value of £50).
