New betting markets unveiled by ahead of next month’s Manchester derby

While all eyes will be on the Merseyside and north London derbies this weekend, excitement is already building ahead of the Manchester equivalent on 23rd October. is therefore pointing football betting fans in the direction of four new markets relating to the build-up to the match between Manchester United and Manchester City at Old Trafford, including which team will be top of the table when the game kicks off.

The season might still be in its infancy, but with every passing week the match between Manchester United and Manchester City at Old Trafford on 23rd October looks more and more pivotal in the context of the 2011-12 Premier League title race.

Both teams have started the campaign in impressive fashion and if played today, the game would be a local derby between two unbeaten sides occupying the top two positions in the table.

However, with the teams still to play two fixtures each before they meet at Old Trafford, is now offering markets on whether United, City or both will be unbeaten when the game kicks off.

Bets are also being taken on who will be top of the Premier League when proceedings get underway on 23rd October.

With United having to play Liverpool at Anfield on 15th October, it is City who appear the most likely to remain undefeated in the league over the next three weeks.

The Citizens are priced at 1/4 to preserve their record over the next two matches and 51/20 to lose to one or both of Blackburn (a) and Aston Villa (h).

Meanwhile, the Red Devils have odds of 9/20 to remain unbeaten and 31/20 to have crashed to defeat to one or both of Norwich (h) and Liverpool (a).

New customers can claim a £25 free bet by signing up for a bwin account and depositing £25.

Using this to back Man Utd to remain unbeaten in their two matches before the Manchester derby would see punters win £36.25 should the bet prove successful.

As for the two teams combined, odds of 4/5 are available on both United and City to be unbeaten on derby day and 9/10 on at least one of them to have already tasted defeat.

Given these odds it would appear unlikely that another team will be top of the table on 23rd October.

And with nearest challengers Chelsea three points adrift in third, odds of 11/1 on a side other than United and City to sit in first place are understandable.

However, it is a closer call between the two Manchester clubs as to who will be in pole position, with both the Red Devils and the Citizens priced at 19/20 to be leading the pack immediately prior to their showdown.

Finally, it is worth noting that is already taking bets on the outcome of the game, with Manchester United the odds-on favourites at 4/5 and a City win priced at 63/20.
