Liverpool currently edge favouritism at 5/4 ahead of their highly-anticipated home clash with Manchester City, who are 39/20 to win with the draw 5/2, but there’s a far safer bet on offer in this monster Premier League fixture, which most believe will decide the outcome of the title.
The boys in black and yellow go 6/5 that there’ll be over 3.5 goals in the match and new punters registering with bwin.com could do much worse than placing the £30 free bet they’re handed upon sign-up on such an eventuality.
Here’s three compelling reasons why that wager would return £36 clear profit:
Premier League leaders and top goalscorers Liverpool have averaged over 3.5 goals per game of their own over their last 11 top-flight fixtures.
Since losing 2-1 to Chelsea between Christmas and New Year, Brendan Rodgers’ big Reds scoring machined has produced an incredible 45 Premier League goals in 14 outings.
The last time they failed to score at least a couple in a home match was during the 1-0 loss against Southampton back in September – 15 games ago.
City have averaged two-plus goals per game over their last five matches in the division.
Liverpool and Luis Suarez may be on course to break all manner of Premier League scoring records, but Manuel Pellegrini’s side are only six behind the leaders’ current top-flight tally of 90 strikes.
The Capital One Cup winners’ tally for the campaign now stands at a whopping 138 goals in all competitions and they will be boosted by the return of a certain Argentine…
Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure – the Premier League’s four leading scorers with 79 goals between them this term – are all set to start at Anfield.
Need we say more? Oh-kaay…the hosts’ captain Steven Gerrard has bagged 11 times in his last 15 appearances for the club and City’s last five strikes have come from different players.
Some bets look too good to be true, others are too good to miss. This one’s in the latter category. Punt accordingly.
