The Leeds-based bookmaker laid a 'price boosted' 45/1 about a City win when they were 2-1 down at half time.
Second-half goals from Aleksandar Kolarov and James Milner duly gave City a famous win at the Allianz Arena. They had actually trailed 2-0 after just 12 minutes before David Silva began the revival.
The victory was still not enough for City to finish top of their group and they will likely face a tough task in the last 16 when the draw is made on Monday.
Possible opponents at this stage include Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
City are, however, rated the English side most likely to win the competition - they can be backed at 14/1 with Sky Bet. Manuel Pellegrini's side are 13/2 to reach the final.
Meanwhile, Manchester United beat Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 thanks to a Phil Jones goal to finish top of their group and they are 16/1 shots to lift the trophy in Lisbon next May.
Chelsea and Arsenal, who both play their final group games on Wednesday, are also 16/1 chances.
Sky Bet currently offer 7/2 about an English side winning the competition.
