Manchester Derby title clash sees biggest-ever gambling frenzy of £100m

London: The derby tonight between Manchester United and Manchester City has sparked a record 100 million pound betting bonanza.

The match has made bookie Ladbrokes predict that betters will stake a huge sum on this critical game, which could determine who lifts this season’s Premier League title.

The Blues at 80, are 3 points behind the Reds 83, and might overtake United on a goal difference with a home victory at their Etihad Stadium.

Bookies are expecting to take a record number of live bets via gamblers’ mobile phones during the match.

“The build-up has whipped fans into a betting frenzy with records set to be smashed,” The Sun quoted a bookie, Alex Donhue, as saying.

Both clubs have just two more games to play after tonight’s clash, which is touted as the ‘mother of all derbies’.
