EVERTON v LIVERPOOL – FREE BET OFFER
Latest Odds: Everton 2/1, draw 12/5, Liverpool 4/1
Betfred have announced they are offering free bets worth £25 to customers to spend on any football fixture this weekend, plus they’ll offer Liverpool at a price of 4/1 (normal price 6/4) for all new customers.
This is shaping up to be a corking encounter between two of the biggest rivals in English football.
Visitors Liverpool have a legitimate chance of being involved in the title shake up this season and can lay down a big marker with a positive result at Goodison Park.
Meanwhile, the Toffees are unbeaten at home in the league, winning three and drawing two, and have started life without David Moyes very encouragingly.
New man in the dugout Roberto Martinez has already influenced the style of football on show at Goodison Park with a new possession orientated football being lapped up and loved by the locals.
This will be Martinez’s biggest test as boss of the blue boys though as the red half of Merseyside have been a force to be reckoned with this season and have the upper hand in this fixture.
Their stranglehold stretches to the fact that Liverpool have lost just one of their last 13 Merseyside derbies in the Premier League.
That stat will be music to the ears of value hunters who are looking to follow this trend and lump on Liverpool at 6/4 with Paddy Power.
However, if Everton are to land the spoils in a derby, it’s most likely to happen at home as Of the nine Merseyside derbies that Everton have won in the Premier League, seven have come at Goodison Park and the Toffees have lost just one of their last 11 Premier League games.
Those who can feel a stalemate on the horizon, and in truth, we’re very much in that camp, can get 12/5 for their money. But for that extra bit of value on a draw, it could be worth chancing the 0-0 correct score at 9/1 as no Premier League fixture has ended 0-0 more often than Liverpool v Everton.
Luis Suarez has a history of playing a huge role in these type of huge games and in his current form has to be backed to score first at 5/1.
Liverpool’s maverick has been in red hot form since returning from suspension for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic and remarkably he’s already joint-second in the Premier League golden boot race with seven goals.
The Uruguayan has also scored in his last two Premier League appearances at Goodison Park.
He rates as best bet material, but those looking to back an Everton player to bag, should keep their eye on if Martinez decides to pick Romelu Lukaku, who has scored twice against Liverpool in the past.
