Manchester City picked up their first win of the new campaign last weekend when they ran out 2-0 winners over Newcastle at St James' Park.
The home side will look for a win worthy of the second favourites for the Premier League title when they face Liverpool on Monday and they're around 17/20 (1.85) to win the match.
New Paddy Power customers can have a huge 7/2 (4.50) on Pellegrini's men continuing their astounding run of form at the Etihad.
The reigning champions dropped just four points at home in the last campaign, seeing off the challenges of every team in the division apart from Chelsea and Sunderland.
Liverpool will be hoping they can spring an early season surprise and Brendan Rodgers' men showed plenty of fight to battle past Southampton in their first game of the new season.
Priced at around 7/2 (4.50) the bookmakers clearly don't rate their chances too highly but, with a talented squad of players, the enhanced price of 9/1 (10.0) on offer from Paddy Power for new customers is sure to prove popular.
Mario Balotelli looks as though he will be a Liverpool player by the time Monday's game comes around and the former Manchester City player could go some way towards replacing the goals Liverpool lost when they sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona this summer.
Whichever side you're backing in this game it makes sense to take the vastly enhanced prices if you're opening a new Paddy Power account. If you already have an account then the bookmaker will let you choose your own Money Back Special from several options including if the match is a draw or if there's a goal in the opening 10 minutes.
Anyone without a Paddy Power account who wants to take advantage of these offers can sign up for one here.
