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.

When United and City clashed at Old Trafford earlier this season in October is was an epic embarrassment for Man U. United was a +200 favorite at home but ended up getting routed by City 6-1.

United completely collapsed in the second half in the match surrendering five of their six goals after the break.
