After the International break interrupting the Premier League season all eyes are now back focussed on this weekends action that will be taking place. As per usual there are some great matches taking place but probably the most exciting and biggest fixture of the weekend is the Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool. This Everton v Liverpool match is actually the 1 st Premier League match of the weekend and kicks off at 12.30pm, Saturday 17 th October at Goodison Park and is live on BT Sport.
Both teams have had a good start to the season, Everton having the better start, having won all 4 of their matches and sitting happily at the top of the league table at present. Liverpool had won their first 3 matches until the form book went straight out of the window and they got hammered 7-2 to Aston Villa. It certainly does make for an interesting match for betting and one we have decided to delve into with this Everton v Liverpool betting preview.
The odds are quite interesting and the first bet we’ll look at are the match result betting market. Liverpool are strong favourites with the bookies and the best odds you will find for a Liverpool win currently are 9/10 with Unibet. For the Everton win you should also head to Unibet as they are the top price of 3/1 there. However, we are avoiding those as our first betting tip for this match is for the match to end in a draw, and currently Bet365 and Betfair have the best odds of 16/5, which we think is some cracking betting value so recommend that as our first bet.
We also expect this to be an action packed match with plenty of end to end action and shots on goal, and with that, goals. So the next bet we will be looking at is the correct score market. As we have said we expect goals, so we are advising taking the 12/1 BetVictor and Bet365 on the correct score being 2-2. If you would like to take a less risky bet though involving the draw you can also bet on both teams to score and the game ends in a draw and that bet gets 15/4 with Bet365 and BetVictor. If you do however like that bet don’t go to the single bet market. Head to Bet365 and place a double bet, with the first bet being the draw and the 2 nd bet being both teams to score, amazingly you will get better odds, in fact you can get over 5/1, quite a difference and another great bet for value in our opinion.
Another interesting betting market for this match for us is the anytime goalscorer betting market and one we are also looking to bet on. So far this season Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin has got off to a flying start, scoring 6 goals in Premier League matches, including a hat-trick against West Brom, another 3 goal hat-trick in the League Cup against West Ham United and a goal against Wales on his England International debut. We expect Calvert-Lewin to pop up on the scoresheet and you can get 13/8 for him with a range of bookmakers, including Betfair on him scoring anytime of the match. Mo Salah also carries odds of Evens to score anytime with 888Sport and Unibet and if you feel adventurous you could bet on both in a double and get over 4/1 with Betfair.
