There’s a doozy of a Money Back Special for Liverpool v Man Utd at bwin – any losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer, player to score two or more, player to score three or more and correct score bets will be refunded if it finishes level.
The likelihood of the 23/10-rated outcome occurring is enhanced by the fact that, for the first time in five years, Liverpool – 31/20 favourites to their visitors’ 33/20 – enter an encounter between the pair in the ascendancy.
After a succession of awful Augusts, collecting a cumulative six points across their first two fixtures of the past three seasons, they have matched that tally this term thanks to 1-0 victories over Stoke and Aston Villa.
That 100% start gives them a two-point advantage over a Man Utd side held at home by Chelsea last time out.
It would be a potentially season-surging boost to remain above the champions after facing them.
The Reds are unbeaten in 11 games in all competitions – drawing four of their last six at Anfield – and have only suffered defeat once on Merseyside in 2013.
David Moyes has never won at Anfield but leads a team that haven’t lost an away Premier League match since last November.
So now that we have established that there is a strong chance of a draw occurring to provide a safety blanket for any bets in the aforementioned five markets, what is the best way to capitalise on this opportunity?
Our favoured option is to back both clubs to win 2-1, with each of those bets offered at 17/2.
The past four meetings between the rivals have ended that way, the latter three in Man Utd’s favour.
On top of that, neither side has kept a clean sheet in their most recent six showdowns.
By adopting this approach, you seize control of the two most appealing win scorelines.
That means more than quadrupling your stake money if either lands, yet losing nothing if the spoils are shared.
