Manchester City vs Manchester United Tips

The second leg of Manchester City’s potential treble is up this weekend. History is being made with a Manchester derby in the FA Cup final, even if the event is considerably impacted by a train strike.

United have the opportunity to complete a domestic cup double and protect their status as the only league, FA Cup and Champions League treble winners in English football history. 

City are massive 1/4 sports betting favourites to lift the trophy. Winning the league with time to spare, Pep Guardiola has been able to rotate his squad in preparation for these two finals.

They might have lost at Old Trafford in January, but City thumped United 6-3 earlier this season and won 15 domestic fixtures on the bounce before their dead-rubber last two league fixtures. 

For some teams, the pressure of a treble would be a real factor to consider here.

That seems much less of an issue with City, who have already dispatched Real Madrid in emphatic fashion and rolled through the second half of the campaign to chase down Arsenal. Pep Guardiola’s team have had cool heads and mixed up their play when required. 

Others might look to the hostility of a derby final for a reason for City to lose. Yes, United got a victory at Old Trafford earlier this season, but City have repeatedly shown us that the pressure of derby day means little to them.

Regardless of the quality of the opponent, Guardiola has seen his team dominate and often blow teams away.

United are stubborn enough to be difficult, but is that enough to upset the odds here? Probably not. 

City are a juggernaut. You can point to potential charges or mock the money spent on assembling this squad, but they are simply one of the greatest teams in the history of English football.

Win on Saturday and defeat Inter a week later, and they will have a strong case as the greatest. Take City -1 at 4/5 – the chance to rest over the last couple of gameweeks could prove pivotal.

Manchester City Outright Betting 2022-23

No team dominates outright betting quite like Manchester City. Strong Champions League odds favourites at just 5/2 to lift the trophy, City are also odds on to defend their Premier League crown after they won on a dramatic final day in 2021-22.

Despite seeing Liverpool lift both domestic trophies last season, City are the favourites for both the FA Cup and EFL Cup.

On top of the team being at the summit of outright betting markets, Erling Haaland is the 29/10 favourite for the Premier League Golden Boot, which is bound to attract many bettors.

Naturally, City’s stars are also among the frontrunners to win PFA Player of the Year.

Guardiola has constructed an all-conquering squad at the Etihad Stadium – check back at 888Sport to keep up to speed with the latest Manchester City outright odds throughout the campaign.

The best value on City to win a trophy has to be with the Champions League given their remarkably short price of just 4/7 to lift the Premier League once again. As great as this City team is, that doesn’t represent value with the strength of Liverpool.

Manchester City are going to be at the centre of outright betting discussion throughout the 2022-23 season, but even this City team misses out on silverware occasionally. They have won just three major trophies over the last two seasons.
