Manchester City v Liverpool 19/03/17

Manchester City v Liverpool betting preview

The title race might be all but over but the battle to get into the Premier League top four is red hot right now with both Manchester City and Liverpool well in the mix.

These sides will clash this Sunday with the former currently one point ahead of the latter and with a game in hand.

Pep Guardiola’s Sky Blues will be smarting from their midweek Champions League exit but can they take out their frustrations on Jurgen Klopp’s visitors?

Betting site Ladbrokes make Man City the 20/21 (1.95) favourites to see off their rivals with Liverpool the 11/4 (3.75) outsiders and the draw priced at 13/5 (3.60).

And if you’re looking to turn a profit then it could pay to side with the team from Anfield.

Liverpool have won their last four in the league against City, including last season’s 4-1 hammering at the Etihad Stadium.

But it’s their most recent form that should concern the hosts.

Klopp’s outfit have found their groove again, winning three of their last four, with victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal featuring in that sequence.

City have lost just once in their last 16 Premier League home games though so the 17/20 (1.85) for Liverpool/Draw in the Double Chance market is also worth considering as a value saver.

Elsewhere, Ladbrokes’ top gambling site is offering a big 12/1 (13.0) about the in-form Georginio Wijnaldum scoring first, much like he did in his side’s 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture.

For the hosts, Sergio Aguero is 9/10 (1.90) to score at any time with Leroy Sane available at bigger odds of 2/1 (3.0) in the same market.

Meanwhile, it’s 12/1 (13.0) for a repeat of that 1-0 scoreline in Liverpool’s favour although if you fancy more goalmouth action then the 6/4 (2.50) for 4+ goals is appealing.

Liverpool v Arsenal Betting Preview

Liverpool v Arsenal betting preview

Both Liverpool and Arsenal were considered viable title contenders earlier in the season but they head into Saturday night’s encounter simply desperate to cling onto hopes of getting into the Premier League’s top four.

Arsenal currently occupy the last Champions League place with this weekend’s hosts just a point behind them.

However, with Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in such poor form right now it’s the Gunners who perhaps represent the best value in this one.

The visitors are 12/5 (3.40) to take all three points with betting giants Ladbrokes.

Meanwhile, it’s currently 21/20 (2.05) for a home win and 5/2 (3.50) for the draw.

Liverpool ran out 4-3 winners at the Emirates in the pair’s opening game of the season but the Merseysiders look a shadow of the team that began the campaign in such scintillating style.

Since the turn of the year they’ve lost six of their last 12 games in all competitions, winning twice in that sequence and just once in their previous seven Premier League games.

Conceding goals has been a major problem, having kept only one top-flight clean sheet in their last seven league outings while letting in two or more goals in four of those fixtures.

Therefore, the 11/2 (6.50) available for Arsenal to net over 2.5 goals is just one of many attractive propositions.

In fact, it could pay to back plenty of net-busting action. Both Teams to Score at 8/13 (1.62) looks a banker given the fact that we’ve seen that outcome bear fruit in 21 of the pair’s last 26 meetings.

The last six Premier League clashes alone have featured 28 goals and that brings Ladbrokes’ bet of 4+ goals at 7/4 (2.75) to be scored into play as well.

Philippe Coutinho scored twice in the reverse fixture and grabbed his first goal since November against Leicester last time out. He’s 11/5 (3.20) to net anytime at Anfield with forward partner Roberto Firmino 5/1 (6.0) to score the game’s opening goal.

For the Gunners, top scorer Alexis Sanchez is 15/8 (2.88) to score anytime while a tempting 10/1 (11.0) to net two or more goals is on offer with one of best betting sites around.

Leicester v Liverpool Betting Preview

Leicester v Liverpool Betting Preview

The Premier League is set to return and the fixture list has thrown-up an intriguing Monday Night Football tussle between champions Leicester City and Liverpool.

Claudio Ranieri’s sacking has sent shockwaves through world football but now his former side must attempt to pick themselves up having endured such a dramatic slide.

Incredibly, the title holders find themselves just one point above the drop zone having lost five straight in the Premier League. Meanwhile, the Foxes haven’t even scored a top-flight goal since beating West Ham on New Year’s Eve.

Therefore, the smart money would appear to be for Liverpool to win at 3/5 (1.60) while those who fancy the home side to come good can get odds of 9/2 (5.50) with the draw priced at 3/1 (4.0).

However, sports betting giant Ladbrokes can offer better value than that.

Boasting one of the best betting sites in the business, this bookmaker has tons of great markets.

Bet on the Premier League

Leicester fans will happily reminisce about last season’s 2-0 home win over the Reds.

However, this term’s 4-1 hammering at Anfield back in September has proved to be far more telling of where the East Midlands outfit are heading in 2016-17.

Roberto Firmino grabbed a brace on that occasion and the Brazilian is 13/10 (2.30) to net at anytime in Monday’s game and 75/1 (76.0) to grab the first in another 4-1 victory.

Elsewhere, Sadio Mane has been a breath of fresh air since returning from the Africa Cup of Nations, with his double against Tottenham Hotspur securing all three points last time out.

The Senegalese striker also bagged in his side’s victory over Leicester in the reverse fixture with 9/4 (3.25) on offer for Mane to net in a Liverpool win.

For the hosts, Jamie Vardy scored his first goal since December against Sevilla, while the Foxes hitman has also netted two goals in his last three appearances against Jurgen Klopp’s outfit.

If Leicester are to get anything then they’ll need the 30-year-old to spark again. Vardy is 17/2 (9.50) to grab the game’s first goal.

However, if you just can’t see past an away win then get on the 6/5 (2.20) for Klopp’s fast-starting side to win the first-half.

Liverpool v Tottenham betting preview

Liverpool v Tottenham Betting Preview

It’s not a great time to be a Liverpool fan and the looming prospect of Tottenham Hotspur rocking up to Anfield this Saturday night is unlikely to calm any nerves.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have gone from Premier League title contenders to mere Champions League hopefuls following a disastrous start to 2017.

Aside from their cup woes, Liverpool have failed to win any of their five top-flight games, although they have shared the spoils in three of those contests.Premiership Betting Odds

And betting on the draw with bookmaking giant Ladbrokes looks an appealing place to begin this punting preview.

Only Manchester United have drawn more games than Maurico Pochettino’s Spurs oufit this season.

Added to that, the hosts have shared the points with four of the current top-six sides already this term so the 9/4 (3.25) certainly appeals.

Meanwhile, the bookies go 23/20 (2.15) for a Liverpool win – an outcome we witnessed when these sides met in a League Cup clash earlier in the season – with 12/5 (3.40) available for a Tottenham victory.

However, if you think it’ll be honours even and wish to get more bang for your buck then have a think about the 5/1 (6.0) the Ladbrokes betting site has put up for a 1-1 scoreline.

That was the result in the reverse fixture at White Hart Lane while Liverpool have registered 1-1 draws against Man United and Chelsea this season.

Elsewhere, it’s 6/4 (2.50) for Harry Kane to add to his 14-goal haul and net at any time, much like he did in last season’s encounter on Merseyside.

For the opposition, leading scorer Sadio Mane is 15/8 (2.88) to get on the scoresheet and 6/1 (7.00) to get the game’s first goal.

Manchester United v Liverpool 15/01/17 Betting Preview

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview: Mou’s men to keep it tight

There may be a blockbuster clash in prospect at Old Trafford but those who chose to watch the reverse fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool a few months ago will probably have wished they hadn’t bothered.

A drab 0-0 would have been pretty low on many people’s priority lists this time around but it could be the case that this game fails to live up to the considerable expectation level once again.

United have hit some very decent form in recent weeks, making smooth progress in both domestic cup competitions and up the Premier League following nine straight wins in all competitions. It’s 23/20 (2.15) that the home side pick up maximum points again here, while Liverpool are 14/5 (3.80) outsiders.

best football betting odds
That price may catch the eye of a few punters but the recent hiccups in form mean it’s tough to trust Jurgen Klopp’s men without some of their key men firing. Philippe Coutinho made a long-awaited comeback from injury in midweek but may not be 100% for this game while the absences of Sadio Mane (AFCON) and Jordan Henderson (injury) are big misses for the Merseysiders.

The draw could be the most sensible option here at 23/10 (3.30), especially with Mourinho likely to set his side up in a manner than means they give little away early on.

With that in mind it’s no surprise to see under 2.5 goals listed at just 5/6 (1.83) with that market being backed across the board at the time of writing.

Overs is available at 19/20 (1.95) but despite Liverpool boasting the highest-scoring attack in the division, they have fired back-to-back blanks in their cup clashes and it would be something of a leap of faith to expect them to spring back to their free-scoring ways given the missing pieces of their attacking puzzle.

Given the move opposing goals, it’s logical that both teams to score will drift too and it has already done so although it’s available at 8/11 (1.73) while at least one side to fail to net is priced at Evens (2.0).

Unders is probably still a fair enough play at 5/6 (1.83) with Betway, it’s copped in five of United’s last seven Premier League clashes at Old Trafford with the two exceptions coming against Middlesbrough and Sunderland who are both in the bottom five of the table coming into this weekend.

For a value bet, why not look to the winning margin market where United to win by one goal is available at 11/4 (3.75) generally. With Liverpool looking a little off-colour it would be no surprise if this game turned into another tense, nervy affair and while Mourinho’s men do have the weapons to come out on top, it’s unlikely to be by an especially convincing margin.

Wayne Rooney is level with Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of 249 Manchester United goals and although the England captain is almost certain to break the record, his poor form in front of goal this season means he’s easy enough to ignore at 6/4 (2.50) to net anytime.

Merseyside Derby

Liverpool And Everton Clash In Merseyside Derby

For a while it looked as though the first Merseyside Derby of the season, this Saturday, was going to be in danger. This is because it seemed as though the penalty shootout between Liverpool and Middlesbrough in front of the Kop was never going to end. Just as some of the younger players in the squad, never minds the fans, were getting ready to be tucked up in their sleep, the sudden death nature of the shoot-out came to the fore and Liverpool sneaked through after a long and exciting night at Anfield. In comparison, Everton’s tame surrender against Swansea in the Capital One Cup was a meek performance and it will be interesting to see how both sides react to their midweek exertions.

Then again, neither side is likely to be too bothered about the old League Cup, with more attention being placed on their league form. Sadly for the two teams from Liverpool, the new season hasn’t started with much to smile about. Both started the season with genuine hopes of being near the top of the table and challenging for the Champions League places but at the moment, both sides are languishing in the bottom half of the table. Yes, it is every early days, but there are plenty of problems and issues for both sides to contend with.

Liverpool come into this game on a poor run of league form

Liverpool have lost their last two league games, at home to Aston Villa and away to West Ham. The results were bad enough but the level of performance in both games was extremely poor and there is no getting away from the fact that Liverpool are missing Sturridge. The loss of the Urugayan was going to present problems but with Sturridge picking up an injury on England duty, Liverpool have found that their attacking menace and vigour, which carried them so close to the title last season, has been lost. Mario Ballotelli is still finding his feet at his new club and there is a real shortage of the energy and excitement that Liverpool rediscovered last term.

It is not as though all of their problems are up front though as their defence has been poor, with Simon Mignolet giving cause for concern as well. Mind you, if we are talking about poor defensive records, Everton are the team to talk about. Tim Howard may have been dubbed the US Secretary of Defence at the World Cup after a stunning showing against Belgium but at the moment, he is more likely to be seen as the US Secretary with no defence! Everton have just one win in 5 games and have suffered two defeats, including a home loss against Crystal Palace. Everton had an excellent defensive record last season but this year, they have struggled to find form.

Everton are scoring but they are conceding a lot too

Up the other end of the pitch, Everton look strong and are in better form that their Scouse counterparts. Only Chelsea have notched more league goals than Everton so far and the goals have been firing in from a number of players. In this light, and noting that Liverpool haven’t had the best defensive record either, you’d have to fancy Everton to grab a goal or two. In fact, the game is definitely screaming out as a Both Teams To Score type of match.

Derbies can be cagey affairs and to be fair, Liverpool have a strong record against Everton. They are unbeaten in the last 8 Merseyside derbies and Everton have not tasted victory at Anfield this millennium. With Liverpool having one eye on a Champions League game in midweek, and both teams struggling to keep out opposition attacks, Everton could just sneak a win which their fans have been waiting a very long time for. However, such is the nature of Merseyside derbies of late, a score draw would not be a surprise.

As for odds, Bet365 are currently offering Liverpool to win at 17/20 and Everton at 3/1 with the stalemate at 13/5 !
