Following a 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage, Manchester City are out to 7/4. And the bookies fear United dominance already in the season after the first Super Sunday.
“They didn’t perform at their very best but with City dropping points, punters might be tempted to double their money with United,” David Williams of Ladbrokes told Betrescue.
Fernando Torres is still odds-on at 1/3 to start for Chelsea in their next Premier League match despite missing an open goal.
It was Fulham who stemmed the flow on a day of generally punter-friendly results.
David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “Fulham’s comeback was priceless. It rescued us from a million pound payout with all the other big home team favourites going in.”
In the sack race, Kenny Dalglish has been trimmed to 25/1 (from 33s) after his Liverpool team went down 4-0 at Spurs. Liverpool are now odds-against (5/4) for a top 4 finish whilst Spurs are into 11/8.
Wayne Rooney added another goal to his tally and despite missing a penalty he is the 9/4 favourite for the Premier League Golden Boot while Sergio Aguerro, who bagged a brace at Fulham, is 5/2.Ladbrokes latest betting:
