Liverpool will be betting on continuing their strong start to pre-season with an away win against Hull on Saturday afternoon.
Kenny Dalglish’s men come into the match at the KC Stadium off the back of a 6-3 thrashing of the Malaysia All-Stars XI and a thrilling 4-3 triumph over Guangdong.
Reds fans could get their first look at new signings Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing, although Dalglish may have to do without the services of centre-back Martin Skrtl who picked up a calf injury in training.
Punters who fancy the Anfield club to have the quality to put the Championship outfit to the sword will find bwin.com is offering odds of 9/20 on them to win, meaning a £25 bet on Liverpool could return £36.25.
Given their fine goalscoring form so far this pre-season, another thriller could be on the cards in East Yorkshire on Saturday. As a result, bwin.com’s odds of 7/2 on five or more goals to be scored in the game look well worth a shout.
While all the signs appear to point to a Liverpool victory, Hull will be going all out to upset their more glamorous rivals in front of their home fans.
A positive result for Nigel Pearson’s men could help to distract from the attention that has been focused on midfielder Jimmy Bullard’s suspension for a breach of club discipline after an alleged incident during a training camp in Slovenia.
The match also comes at an important time for the Tigers, with the new Championship campaign set to get underway in two weeks.
Liam Rosenior could get his first taste of pre-season action in the clash, while new signings Paul McKenna, Dele Adebola and Joe Dudgeon have all been included in the squad.
Although they will start as underdogs, the odds of 9/2 for a Hull win at bwin.com may be an attractive prospect, as a £25 bet on Pearson’s men could return £137.50. New customers can register here to receive a £25 free bet.
