Man City on a Downward Spiral - Sporting Index


London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/06/2012 -- Robert Mancini’s side dropped their first home league points of the campaign to Sunderland and spread sellers of City’s win index will be happy to hear that was the second consecutive game they’ve failed to win.

Those spread betting with buying on City’s win index will have been pleased to see the Gunners’ six match winning streak come to an end at Loftus Road on Saturday. However, the Gunners’ spread supporters might argue that the side have won their past six home games. One factor that spread buyers of City’s win index may be aware of is that the clubs have already met twice this season and both have finished 1-0 to Sunday’s visitors.

Those who spread bet with an interest in the total goals market will be intrigued to learn that there have been only two goals in the last three meetings between these two clubs. The Sporting Index bookings index market will likely spark plenty of debate amongst spread bettors after City’s past two visits to the Emirates. City’s Carling Cup win produced just one caution, but buyers of the bookings index will argue that Arsenal’s last home league game against City saw two red cards and a total of 70 points.

Saturday’s lunch-time kick off sees Tottenham travel to the Stadium of Light and spread buyers of the match supremacy will be hoping the side can land a league double over Sunderland for the first time since the 2001/02 campaign. Spurs ended a run of three straight Premier League games without a win by beating Swansea 3-1 on Sunday, which should offer plenty of encouragement to those spread enthusiasts buying the visitor’s win index this weekend.

Martin O’Neill’s side were four minutes away from becoming the first team to beat Manchester City at home in over a year before they blew the lead to the disappointment of those spread punters that had bought their win index. Spread bettors buying Sunderland’s win index on Sunday will be happy to learn that they’ve won five of their past six home league games.

Manchester United meet QPR on Sunday and spread bettors keen on the time of first match goal market might like to know that Wayne Rooney scored in the first minute at Loftus Road. Match supremacy spread bettors may have spotted that Rangers have failed to score in their past two fixtures against the Red Devils.

Those spread bettors debating selling United’s win index may have noted that QPR have been beaten five times in their past six away league fixtures. During that run Mark Hughes’ side have conceded an average of two goals per game and that should be of interest to total goal buyers.

David De Gea has been under plenty of pressure this season, but his run of four Premier League clean sheets will be music to the ears of buyers of the match supremacy on Sunday lunch-time.
