City are 2/1 to win the game outright, with the Posh 13/10 favourites. The draw is 12/5, which is a large price that reflects the head to head record, with the two sides only ever playing out four draws.

There has never been a 0-0 draw between the two sides, so if you think that history will be made at the Ricoh Arena tomorrow you can back that scoreline at 10/1.

With this fixture having a history of high-scoring games, there is potential when looking at some of the more unusual scores.

The Sky Blues have scored twice or more against the Posh in their last seven home meetings and you can back a very healthy 10/1 shot of City to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2.

In the first goalscorer market there is the usual suspects featuring as the front runner. Josh McQuoid is 6/1 favourite to open the scoring for the Sky Blues, with Simeon Jackson 13/2 and Shaun Miller 7/1.

For the Posh the pair of Luke James and Conor Washington possess the biggest threat to the City back line and are both 11/2 to break the deadlock. Marcus Maddison is 6/1 and Jon Taylor can be found at 13/2.

With the history of goals between the two sides and City only failing to score at home once this season, the option to back over 2.5 goals seems like a fantastic prospect.

HOT TIP: Over 2.5 Goals - 5/6

SOUTHAMPTON to beat STOKE - 8/15
