Tevez The Tormentor? Free 20 Bet

Last updated : 19 January 2010 By Paddy Power

Paddy Power make Man City slight 8/5 favourites because of the home advantage and the fact that Roberto Mancini will field his best XI. A Wembley Final (proper cup) for first since 1976 is too much for City to miss out on especially at the hands of United. Speaking of them Paddy Power think they are 13/8 to win at Eastlands and take an advantage back to Old Trafford, they’ll have taken heart from Everton’s performance against City and know they are just as capable as Everton of restricting City. It promises to be a great match whichever side of the fence you sit.
8/5        Man City Win
23/10    Draw
13/8      Man Utd Win
With so much at stake Paddy Power have decided to come to the rescue of punters if the game ends in a 0-0 draw. That’s right if it ends 0-0 Paddy Power will refund all losing 1st/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets on the match. Plus new accounts get a free £20 bet when they sign up and place their first bet of £10.
This biggest talking point so far has been Carlos Tevez being in great form and gunning for the chance to play against Man Utd. 11 goals in his last 10 games is great form and some are saying is what is missing from United this season. He goes head to head with Wayne Rooney who is looking for his best scoring return for United since he joined. There’s nothing separating them in the Paddy Power first scorer betting both are 11/2 chances. Shaun Wright Phillips looked lively and creative when he came on at Everton, maybe he’ll have done enough to get a start in the cup team. If he does start 14/1 on him scoring 1st will be a great bet. For United, Darren Gibson is looking every bit the successor to Paul Scholes, he’s got an eye for goal especially from long range; he’s 18/1 to open proceedings which for some fans will be their choice. Shay Given will be well aware of Gibsons range and power from distance or at least he should be!

Paddy Power have come up with some Tevez specials given his current purple patch, he’s 50/1 to score a hat-trick against his former employers. United’s defence better play better than they have of late otherwise they could be up against it tonight. Who’ll come out on top in the head to head between Tevez and Rooney; its 13/2 they both score in the match and 14/5 that one outscores the other. Gary Neville and co are fully aware of what Carlos Tevez is capable of and what they need to do to stop him, so Paddy Power go 7/2 that Gary Neville is the first player to foul Tevez.
First To Foul Tevez
7/2        Neville
7/2        Evra
4/1        Brown
4/1        Vidic
5/1        Scholes
7/1        Gibson
The match at Old Trafford ended 4-3 to United thanks to some “interesting” injury time being played. For the neutrals another goalfest would be more than welcome it’s 14/1 there is 6 or more goals in the match and its 150/1 City win 4-3 this time. Any advantage going to Old Trafford will be a bonus and attack could be the best form of defence.
