City will go top of the Premier League, while United can stretch their lead to six points with a win, although the Red Devils defence has been giving Sir Alex Ferguson sleepless nights this season and the home side have the attacking players to make it a difficult afternoon.
To qualify for your free In-Play bet at bet365, you need to place a pre-match bet and that essentially means you will get your first In-Play bet on the Manchester derby refunded if it doesn’t win.
So for example, you might bet £50 on Manchester City before the match at 6/5 and then place an In-Play £50 bet on City at 2/1 at half-time with the scores level.
If City win the match, you would make a profit of £160.
If City don’t win the match, you would only lose £50 – your pre-match stake as bet365 would refund that losing In-Play bet.
So make sure you place a pre-match bet on the Manchester derby and bet365 will give you a free In-Play bet to the same stake on the big match.
To qualify for your free In-Play bet, simply place a bet before kick-off, then once the game starts place another bet on any In-Play market. If your FIRST In-Play bet loses bet365 will refund this stake, up to the same value as your largest pre-match bet (max £50).
As always, there’ll be plenty to choose from with over 70 In-Play markets available throughout the game including Next Goal, Match Goals, Total Corners, Half-Time Result, Full-Time Result and much more.
