Man City vs Man United Betting Tips: Three Boosted Odds for the Carabao Cup Semi-Final

Man City betting tips

Manchester City look to complete the job against Manchester United tonight and for our three betting tips on the match, we’ve picked out some enhanced odds offers from the bookmakers for the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg.

Aston Villa await the winners in the Wembley final and it is Pep Guardiola’s side who are in complete control of this tie after winning 3-1 at Old Trafford a few weeks ago. Since then, United have lost 2-0 to Burnley and Liverpool, and beat Norwich and Wolves in the league, and Tranmere in the FA Cup fourth round.

Now they must overturn a 3-1 deficit at the Etihad Stadium to defy the odds and book their place in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday 1st March.


Sergio Aguero to score first – was 23/10 now 11/4

Bookmaker: William Hill (sign-up bonus bet £10 get £30)

Aguero missed the first leg of this tie through injury, but he’s back now and scoring goals. If he starts this match then he’s the obvious choice for a first goalscorer bet. He was rested for the FA Cup tie against Fulham at the weekend which indicates that Guardiola will give him a start tonight.

Since returning from injury Aguero has scored six goals in three matches including a hat-trick against Aston Villa and two against Crystal Palace.

With the major bookmakers, you will not get better odds than 11/4 for Aguero to score first tonight so if that is a bet that you fancy, I’d advise using William Hill – the offer of 11/4 is open to all customers.

Man City to win and BTTS – was 13/8 now 15/8.

Bookmaker: Coral (sign-up bonus get £10 get £30 in free bets)

This bet would have won in the first leg and it might be a winner again. Although I’m predicting an easy win for Manchester City, they don’t often keep clean sheets and with United needing to go for goals, they could get on the scoresheet. City have recently conceded at home to Everton, Crystal Palace and Port Vale so it’s not hard to see them conceding tonight.

Both teams have scored in five of the last six Manchester derbies so if you are betting on Manchester City to win this match, then using this price boost is the best way to go.

Anthony Martial to score anytime – was 3/1 now 7/2.

Bookmaker: Betfair (sign-up bonus is £100 in free bets)

The last Man City vs Man United betting tip is an anytime goalscorer and the odds for Martial have been boosted to 7/2 at Betfair. He looks the main attacking threat for Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s side now Marcus Rashford is injured, and he missed a guilt-edged chance at Anfield against Liverpool when he really should have scored. Playing more centrally has been helping Martial though and he scored in the 609 win at Tranmere in the FA Cup on Sunday.

His pace will certainly worry the City defence and he looks the most likely scorer if Man United are to find the net tonight.
