All the best odds from Paddy Power ahead of the City's FA Cup clash with Wigan...
Manchester City’s quest for further silverware continues against Wigan this weekend. City have won 8 of the last 9 meetings between the two teams, the only defeat in that run being last season’s FA Cup final. Up to that game City had beaten the Latics seven times in a row without conceding a single goal, scoring thirteen of their own. The two sides met again in the Capital One Cup back in September with Pellegrini’s men recording a comfortable 5-0 win at the Etihad Stadium.
City win and handicap markets
Manchester City will be a popular choice in football accumulators this weekend but at 1/7 to win in 90 minutes you’ll need to bet pretty big to turn any kind of noticeable profit. A more popular single bet will be Manchester City -2 goals at 11/10 and Manchester City -3 goals at 13/5.
City to win to nil and correct score markets
City to win to nil at 4/7 is a solid bet but you might be better off taking on a couple of correct score bets. A repeat of September’s 5-0 win pays out at 14/1 and is already seeing plenty of betting action. City to win 4-0 at 8/1 and 3-0 at 11/2 are also proving popular.
Sergio Aguero had scored in eight straight games in all competitions before the Capital One Cup final and has 26 goals in 26 Manchester City appearances. He tops the market at 11/5 to score first and 4/11 to score anytime. Negredo is also a good bet at 11/5 to score first, as is Yaya Toure at 9/2 with the Ivorian midfielder scoring his 17th goal of the season in the Capital One Cup final.
