Manchester Derby betting preview

This Monday's Manchester Derby between rivals Manchester United and Manchester City means more than ever with the winner taking over sole possession of top spot in the English Premier League.

Heading into the match United sits atop the standings with 83 points, but City is right at their heels with 80 points. If City can pick up three points with a win on Monday they would be tied with United in total points, but would actually be in first place due to their lead in goal differential.

Minnesota pays a visit to Los Angeles on Monday, hoping to shut down the Angels bats in baseball action at Angel Stadium, but they arrive with a 4-18 mark in their last 22 games on the road.

Not surprisingly, the Twins are big moneyline underdogs to the powerful but underachieving Angels.
