Check out the latest offers ahead of Tuesday's clash with the Royals...
City are 8/15 with Paddy Power to beat Reading on Tuesday night (8pm) and sign off their last away game of the season with a win.
The Blues ran out 1-0 winners at the Etihad Stadium earlier this season with Gareth Barry heading a 90th- minute winner against the Barclays Premier League newbies.
A repeat of that scoreline at the Madejski Stadium is 7/1 with Paddy Power while City to win by a one-goal margin is 5/2. A half-time score of 0-0 and City to win 1-0 is 13/1 with Paddy Power.
The sides haven’t met too often in recent seasons but the last two meetings in all competitions have ended in 1-0 wins for the Blues and City to win again and one or two total goals in the match is 7/2 while under 2.5 goals is an 11/8 chance.
Edin Dzeko is City’s leading scorer in the league this season and netted in the 1-0 win against West Brom last week.
The Bosnian international is 5/1 to get the first goal of the game and 6/5 to score at anytime while Barry is 20/1 to score the game’s first goal or 14/1 to score first for his team as they look to do the double over Nigel Adkins’ team.
Roberto Mancini’s side are chasing their ninth away win of the season and have scored 23 of their 62 league goals on the road and are 4/9 to score the first goal of the game.
City have scored most of their 62 goals this season (17) between the 60th and 75th minute and Paddy Power offer 18/1 that the first goal of the game comes in the nine minutes between the 66th and 75th minute on Tuesday.
The visitors are 11/4 to win both halves and 11/10 to score in both halves.
On average City have scored their first goal away from home in the 38th minute and its 2/1 that the first 45 minutes sees the most goals in this game.
City are 15/8 to win to nil while Joe Hart – who kept his 17th clean sheet of the season in the last league game against West Brom – is 6/4 to stop the home side from scoring.
Reading have conceded the joint highest amount of goals in the top flight this season (67) but need just one point for their last two games to ensure they do not finish bottom the Premier League.
