Louis Van Gaal’s Red Devils side beat neighbours City 4-2 in Sunday’s Manchester Derby at Old Trafford and BetVictor have cut United to 13/8 (from 4s) to follow Champions-elect Chelsea home in second place.
Customers who had taken advantage of BetVictor’s ‘Money Back if Both Teams Score’knew their fat within 15 minutes with Ashley Young levelling after Sergio Aguero’s opener and we have refunded losing bets on selected markets accordingly.
Aguero’s brace takes his tally for the season onto 19 league goals for the campaign and he is tied alongside Spurs’ Harry Kane and Chelsea’s Diego Costa at the top of the scoring charts with just five weeks of the season remaining.
Costa remains on the Blues’ injury list and is the 12/1 outsider of three in what looks a match on paper between Aguero and Kane and the diminutive Argentine the 8/11 favourite to win a first Golden Boot and Kane, the odds-on favourite to be named PFA Young Player of the Year, even money with BetVictor.
A fourth away defeat on the spin for the Citizens sees further pressure mount on manager Manuel Pellegrini and BetVictor make the Chilean the 4/6 (from 11/4) favourite to be the next PL Manager to Leave his Post.
With Pellegrini seemingly likely to fall on his sword sooner rather than later at the Etihad, the market on who will replace him and current Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti backed into 6/4 favourite to be the Citizens’ next permanent manager, irrespective of the timescale.
Ancelotti does boast a Premier League winners’ medal from his time at Chelsea and heads the betting ahead a footballing who’s who including Champions League winning-managers Pep Guardiola and Rafa Benitez however the most interesting move has been for Alejandro Sabella.
The 60-year-old knows English football well having played for Sheffield United and Leeds in his pomp and rubbed elbows with a host of City’s superstars when guiding the Argentinian national team to last summer’s World Cup final. Sabella has been backed into 6/1 (from 12s) with BetVictor and is a tentative suggestion at the prices, alongside City reserve manager Patrick Vieira at 4/1.
While Pellegrini’s future at the Etihad looks in doubt, new Masters Champion Jordan Spieth’s career in the game of golf looks quite the opposite, with the 21-year old going wire-to-wire to land his first of likely many Green Jacket’s at Augusta on Sunday. The Texan looks set to rival Rory McIlroy for years to come and BetVictor make the World #2 the 10/1 second favourite to land back-to-back Majors in the US Open at Chambers Bay – Rory the 6/1 favourite to land a 5th career Major and a 2nd US Open Title.
The Texas-native has finished first or second in his last four tournaments and heads the betting for this week’s RBC Heritage Invitational with the world at his feet.
Spieth is the 5/4 favourite to win the PGA Tour’s Money List and is 8/1 with BetVictor to retain his Masters crown next April. Could it be a case of too much, too soon, for the young man?
Spieth is the first Masters winner to play the Heritage since Zach Johnson’s participation in 2007 and
after a whirlwind media tour in the aftermath of his Augusta success, he warrants taking on as the
13/2 market leader.
Former Champions Jim Furyk and Matt Kuchar, the latter winning last year with a final round 64, should keep the young man’s feet well and truly planted and can warrant each-way support at 22/1 and 25/.1 respectively with BetVictor.
