IT really is a Super Sunday and it could pay punters to bank on the Manchester rivals as they step up the title chase.

United have beaten Liverpool in seven of the last eight league meetings at Old Trafford and should see off a side that's been hit and miss this season.

Liverpool have relied too much on Luis Suarez and although Daniel Sturridge has arrived to give him a hand it's too early to say whether the pairing will hit off.

United have won nine out of 10 at home this season, scoring 28 goals, and should be too strong.

They are a biggest 10-11 at William Hill and should score at least two even without injured Wayne Rooney.

Back them at 1-1 with Hills in the race to two goals and also look at both teams to score at 4-7 with Ladbrokes because although the defence has improved there are still some question marks.

Oddschecker say seven of nine meetings have been over 2.5 goals so consider that at 8-13 (various).

Robin van Persie netted a stunning equaliser at West Ham last week and is 7-2 at Paddy Power and BetVictor.

You can never of course rule out a contribution from the controversial Luis Suarez who is 2-1 at Stan James to net at any time.

City have lost three in a row at the Emirates but the Gunners have only won five out of nine at home this season so it's hardly been a fortress.
Recently City have been in great form, scoring 10 in three games, and I like them at a best 9-5 at BetVictor.

Goals have been in favour – even if Mario Balotelli hasn't – so the man to look at for the opener with Sergio Aguero injured is Edin Dzeko at 13-2 (various).

City have a few out including Samir Nasri and the Toure brothers but if United win as I expect then Roberto Mancini will feel his men have to match their result or face a massive uphill struggle in the title race.

Leagues Tipped:

    I think Man Utd might be in for a frustrating afternoon.

    Hoping a don’t tempt fate here but I think there will be plenty of goals in the Arsenal game.

    • Alva 11 years ago

      u could be right mate.Liverpool 1-0. Arsenal 2-2.

  2. Milesey 11 years ago

    I am going for the Manchester Double @4.50.

    Got 5 horses on tomorrow:

    Navan 12.45
    Midnight Game

    Wolverhampton 2.00
    Spark Of Genius

    Lager Time

    Kames Park

    Lucky 15
    Kelso 1.50
    Corrin Wood

    have had to put quite abit of stake on these to see a decent return if they come in.

    Seems like everyone missed the bet of the day
    Reading in the 80th Minute 2-0 down, the odds must have have been absolutely massive.

    I was too busy watching another shocking performance from Stevenage, good coming from behind, too negative when in front and trying to defend a lead as shown once again today.

    • Alva 11 years ago

      you should get at least 5.4 for Man. double.

    • Alva 11 years ago

      Yes odds would have been huge however if u had been watchin game live u would never have dreamt it at the time WBA were all over Reading.Been worth a mince round tho.

  3. John Bryan 11 years ago

    I’ve got to be a party-pooper here and wish for no goals in either the Man U or Arsenal games.

    I’ve gone for four 0-0 draws in The Sun’s ‘Predictor’ game, the first two have come in at Everton and Norwich. Another two and I’ll have won the jackpot or a share thereof…and if you know how much the jackpot now stands at….

    wish me luck!


    • Milesey 11 years ago

      They are not going to be 0-0, you can definetly see goals in both games, none of these 4 teams really defend, its all about what they have going forward.

    • Alva 11 years ago

      All the best John,hope it goes down tho as it will knack my bets.

  4. Milesey 11 years ago

    Didn’t realise there was an 11am match

    Betis V Levante / Levante @3/1 is my tip

    Betis at home recently have been poor !

  5. celtic 67 11 years ago

    im going £50 both to score in man utd and man c games and also £50 on boths man u and man c to win not sure on the odds going to william hills in morning do you think it looks good bet?

    • Alva 11 years ago

      Checked those odds for u.BTS double 2.36/1.hills.go ladbrokes 2.54/1.Manchester double pays 5.35/1.Hills.

  6. John 11 years ago

    I’m looking at an early game in the portuguese 2nd division, Feirense v Belenenses, 2/1 for the home team to bag 2 goals and 4/1 for the away team to hit 3, who have hit 1O in their last 3 away games, so not sure which to bet on

    • Dave 11 years ago

      Beleneses are top of the table and seem to score goals for fun, i wouldnt back against them, but thats a sure reason to go for the one i wouldnt ;)

  7. John 11 years ago

    True, last week they played Freamunde who are bottom but have been on a run of 3 wins and a draw in their last few games and i got 3/1 for Freamunde to score 2 and they got 3, so it’s a tough sunday ahead with decision making

    • Dave 11 years ago

      can you do an over 2.5? i think that games a later kick off not an early one. What you else you going for early?

      man u bts
      woking bts
      coventry bts

      hows that sound?

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Dave, the first two are in my treble and the other are in my btts so I’m not going to argue with you.

  8. John 11 years ago

    I’ve a terrible habit of doing live betting, missed out on Berwick to net 2 today at 7/1 all because i needed a replacement game when i found out Arbroath v Alloa got postponed but couldn’t make up my mind, not sure what i’ll bet on tomorrow after the early game

  9. Tony 11 years ago

    Btts 2 draws aswell just my thoughts

  10. John 11 years ago

    Coventry to score 2 at Evens with paddy power looks a good bet, but i’d sooner do that as a single rather than part of a double or treble, so if my early bet comes up i’ll put my winnings on that and see where i end up :-)

  11. Stevie H 11 years ago

    Ive took Suarez,Van Persie, Walcott & Tevez all to score anytime @ 37.5/1. got to beworth a fiver!!

    Also seen that Man U were 9/4 to win the game and both teams to score.

    will have a look at more and try get an accum on, not looked at European games yet aswell

  12. Luke 11 years ago

    Where did you see that price for both teams to score and United to win Stevie?

  13. Stevie H 11 years ago

    skybet mate

  14. Luke 11 years ago

    Nice one, cheers mate

  15. Mike 11 years ago

    Man city are without yaya toure and Sergio aguero! Big miss for them, think arsenal might take it! Leaving the game for an in-play bet

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Mike, they’ll need to manage without Toure and much depends on how they bring in for Aguero. A draw wouldn’t be a huge surprise but I’ve stuck my neck and gone for City. Like Liverpool. you’re not sure how bad or good Arsenal will be.

  16. Stevie H 11 years ago

    Man C havent won away to Arsenal in 38years and havent scored in their last 5 visits to the Emirates. Law of average’s say they are due a win against an inconsistant Arsenal team?!? Giving Man C is without keys players tho will this record go on?

    Both teams to score looks the best bet imo but im doing the same a mike and bet in play on this one

  17. Alva 11 years ago

    I dont think MAN.U have improved at the back.Liverpool should score .

  18. Chris Harris 11 years ago

    Going to wait for the line Ups for both manc games then probably roll with some inplay betting as I will be watching both games

  19. Alva 11 years ago

    Man.c. will go with Dzeko & Tevez i thinks.Score draw could be ur bet here.

  20. Alva 11 years ago

    MR.Fixit noticed u had Pars & Elgin in 2 lines yesterday.Cardinal Sin.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Alva, both losing were shocks. If you’re confident about a team you shoulnd’t worry about how many lines they’re on.

  21. Alva 11 years ago

    BONKERS BETS:Gerard 1st goal Liverpool 1-0. 90/1.Suarez 1st goal LIVERPOOL 2-1 45/1.

  22. Tony 11 years ago

    Man utd
    Atl Madrid
    6 returns 109 would be a nice end to weekend hopefully a get as far as barca last game could be a nice Sunday night

  23. Darren G 11 years ago

    Cheers mr F for pointing out the Italian picks, I had a tbl that included lazio & Napoli with Man U, 100 for 411 with PP
    Contemplating a small tbl tonight both Spanish games and ac milan, Milans form putting me off a bit, I won’t be eating in to my winnings too much, max stake of 30 if I follow through, will try and source some team news

  24. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    Been a good day Paul! Singled both RVP and city, threw Juventus into my city/utd treble though which was annoying!

    Will be on Benfica tonight! :)

  25. John 11 years ago

    If you write on a docket “paddy power odds” or “betway odds” or “bet365 odds” above your selections are independent bookies more willing to accept the bet or does that all depend on the individual bookie? I hope i’ve explained it right…lol

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      John, an independent will usually have one source from where they will get a price. If you have one offering to match best price that’s different but it would be unlikely they could match best internet price.
