    This game has been billed as the most important Manchester derby ever and it is one in which nothing but a win will probably be good enough for Man City as they bid to overhaul United in the title race. The omens are good for an away win here and there should be other bets to add even more interest to this high stakes match.

    With home advantage going the way of City it is they who are favourites to win the match, currently available at odds of 5/4 in some places at the time of writing. Home advantage is certainly not to be underestimated at Eastlands, out of Man City's last twenty one home games they have won twenty of them and drawn one. Man Utd are a big price to pretty much wrap up the league title with a win in this match, United are 5/2 with a couple of bookies whilst a draw should be enough to see a 20th league title go the way of United and that outcome is 13/5. The odds may favour City slightly here but the outright Premiership odds certainly don't, Man Utd are still red hot favourites at 1/2 with City way off at 7/4.

    Any of the last three results between these two teams at Eastlands would be a very nice result for United, this match was a 0-0 draw last season whilst the previous two trips to Eastlands were won 1-0 by United. That was also the score when the teams met there in 2007 with City sneaking a 1-0 win themselves in the same year but the following season. That means four of the last five league games between the teams at Eastlands have finished 1-0 and the other was 0-0. Under 2.5 goals looks a very good in this match because of this and should be backed at 6/5 whilst at bigger odds the correct score market is going to be very popular.

    The best bet in the correct score market has to be a 1-0 win for United at a very generous 12/1, at the very least that scoreline should trade a lot shorter in running. Next best is a bet on 0-0 at 14/1 and at those odds that outcome should probably be covered whatever you are betting on whilst if you want to cover a City win in case worse case scenario happens you could back them to win 1-0 at 9/1. At the odds those three scorelines are available at it might not even be a bad bet to cover all three outcomes.

    With so few goals expected there should be plenty more value in the first goalscorer betting than the anytime betting and Wayne Rooney makes by far the most appeal in a game of this magnitude, he is 7/1 with a few bookies to open the scoring which looks a very big price whilst the bookies make Danny Welbeck the second favourite for United at 9/1. If you aren't going for Rooney though the best bet could be Paul Scholes who was the last United player to score at Eastlands in the league, Scholes is a big 20/1 to open the scoring against City on Monday night.

    It's 50/1 for a reason. Even those odds seem too short.

    With both sides almost certain to set up defensively, I can't see six goals.

    I'm thinking of putting a load of money (relative to a student) on City winning the league. It still won't be win-win, but at least there'd be something to be taken out of us not winning the league if we feck it up.

    Edit: I see there's a thread regarding this already...

    No way will it be 1-0. 5 or more goals in the last 3 derbies, hopefully that sets the trend.

    Delegate the work. Get Hectic to hack into Boss' account to post these "tips". Atleast then we can just blame Boss as per usual.
