Few games in English football come even close in terms of intensity to the Derby of Manchester, between United and City. The fact that they are virtually tied for the third-place and try to secure another Champions League berth only amplifies the pressure bearing on the players. The entire city is in turmoil and bookmakers are offering ample coverage to this fixture, with BetVictor making a tempting proposition to those who care to make the game even more exciting.

Since the outcome of this match is so difficult to predict, punters might be tempted to bet on the correct score, first, last or anytime goalscorer as well as the half time/full-time markets. This offer great odds and the fact that the stakes will be reimbursed if both teams score should provide punters with the incentive to put their luck to the test. BetVictor is only going to refund the losses up to a maximum of €5 and the money will be credited in the form of a free bet.

Paddy Power makes a similar proposition to those who wager €20 or currency equivalent in single bets on the match, prior to kickoff. By doing so, players will receive automatically a €5 free bet that can be used in play on the game and punters get to keep whatever profits they make. These are not subject to wagering requirements, so one moment of inspiration is all they need.
