Famous for leading his troops by example, the Reds skipper has been booked on just six of the 32 occasions he has played Everton.
As such odds of 1/2 that he escapes a yellow card in the fixture should be snapped up, while 20/1 that he is sent off is arguably still not a convincing price about just a third ignominious exit being pasted into his Merseyside derby scrapbook.
Having struck in just under one in three of his past meetings with the Toffees, Gerrard is a fair bet at 9/4 to kiss Goodison goodbye by netting.
However, in spite of his mammoth haul of ten penalties last term he has never struck from the spot against Everton and there may be other bets more alluring than the 8/1 about him doing so.
Backing him to open the scoring at 8/1 is just such a wager with Gerrard having bagged the opener on four of the last five occasions he found the net in the friendly derby.
