Manchester United and Manchester City meet for the first time this season on Saturday, and the pressure is on both after some recent mixed results.
Here’s a close look at the Manchester United vs Manchester City betting options available at LV BET.
MANCHESTER UNITED VS MANCHESTER CITY BETTING TIPS
One week ago, things were looking rather different for both the Manchester clubs.
Manchester United were in the middle of a crisis. The Red Devils endured embarrassment both away and at home, losing 4-2 at the King Power Stadium to Leicester City before being hammered 5-0 at Old Trafford by bitter rivals Liverpool.
For their upcoming opponents Manchester City, skipping past Brighton was the latest test passed, but now the Premier League outlook for the champions is different after their home howler against Crystal Palace.
United, who were a 50-1 bet to lift the title seven days ago, will go up the table and level on points with their big rivals if they can pull off a famous win in front of their fans this weekend.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must decide whether to stick or twist with three central defenders after it worked so well during their 3-0 win against Tottenham.
What is the price for a clean sheet after their recent defensive disasters?
LV BET have a 1-0 United win on offer at 11/1 (12.00).

There is value in the both teams to score bet, available at 13/20 (1.65) – that’s our Bet Booster.

Manchester City’s lack of an out-and-out goalscorer was laid bare last weekend during their 2-0 loss to Patrick Viera’s Crystal Palace.
When they are in the mood, it doesn’t matter who leads the line – but when things just aren’t clicking, it becomes crystal clear that their failure to lure Harry Kane to the club is bigger than Pep Guardiola lets on.
City need a Premier League response and simply can’t afford to fall eight points behind Chelsea heading into the international break.
History is on United’s side. The teams have played 185 matches in all competitions, United winning 77, City 55, and the remaining 53 having been drawn.
But in the past three Premier League meetings, City haven’t scored against the Reds.
They will need to find their shooting boots again on Saturday.
If you think City could bring United back down to earth, we have a 3-0 away win priced at 13/1 (14.00).
We have 21/4 (6.25) on the game to be level at half-time – and full-time.
City to score at any point in the second half is 4/9 (1.44).
Both teams know where the net is – City and United to both score in the opening 15 minutes is a 9/1 (10.00) bet.
