City are 21/10, with the U's 5/4. The draw is prices at 12/5, showing it really could be anybodies game when the two sides meet tomorrow.

With the Sky Blues looking for their first away league win of the season, a City victory could get you some serious money. Coventry to win at half time and full time at 7/2 looks tempting, as City have not lost after taking the lead since a loss to Scunthorpe all the way back in September.

In the first goalscorer market, U's hotshot Freddie Sears is 5/1 favourite to break the deadlock. He is ahead of fellow attackers Sanchez Watt and Gavin Massey, who are 6/1 respectively.

For the Sky Blues, Frank Nouble is 13/2, with all of the other City strikers 7/1 (Marcus Tudgay, Gary Madine, Simeon Jackson, Josh McQuoid).

Manager Steven Pressley confirmed that Reda Johsnon will have some part to play tomorrow, and the captain is 14/1 to get his fifth goal of the season. Ryan Haynes is 40/1, a massive price for a regular starter.

The double chance of Coventry or Draw is 8/13, and although it may be a boring bet, the price is too good to ignore, and could be a good chance to put some money in your pocket for the weekend.

Hot Tip: Coventry or Draw - 8/13

Long Shot:

ManchesterCity to beat Swansea - 4/11

Blackburn to beat Leeds - 4/6

Rochdale to beat Doncaster - 17/20

Bury to beat Newport - 10/11

Shrewsbury to beat Exeter - 1/1
