Bet365 offer 10/11 odds on Liverpool to beat Everton 2018-04-075th April 2018 / lee
The third Merseyside derby of the season is coming up on the weekend as Liverpool make the short trip across the City to Goodison Park to meet their rivals. The two played out a 1-1 draw when they met back in early December last year at Anfield, Mo Salah opening the scoring for the Reds before a Wayne Rooney penalty thirteen minutes from time gave the Toffees a share of the spoils.
In early January they went head to head again at Anfield in an FA Cup third-round tie and Liverpool prevailed 2-1. For the Reds this is more than just a Merseyside derby, this is a chance for them to continue their push for a top-two finish this season. The Reds start the weekend in third place, two points behind second-placed Manchester United who have a game in hand over them as well. So Liverpool can’t let up on their pace.
Everton v Liverpool Odds*
Liverpool 10/11, Draw 13/5, Everton 11/4* (betting odds taken on April 5th, 2018 at 3:08 a.m.)
The Reds have produced a W9 D3 L4 record on their travels in the top flight and they have won three of their last four away from Anfield now. The other game in that sequence was their defeat at Old Trafford to Manchester United last month. They have scored at least two goals in their last eleven road games and it is little surprise really that they are going into his Merseyside derby as the favourites. Given the superior firepower that they have, Liverpool are 8/1 odds with Bet365* (betting odds taken on April 5th, 2018 at 3:08 a.m.) to win 2-1 in the correct score market.
The Reds are unbeaten in their last sixteen games against Everton in all competitions they have remained undefeated in their last six trips to Goodison Park specifically in the Premier League (W3 D3). They are stacked with scoring power and they will have even more confidence after beating Manchester City in the Champions League in midweek as well at Anfield, a thumping 3-0 success in the first leg.
Liverpool have scored 37 goals in 16 away games this season for an average of 2.3 per game away from Anfield and it’s been just a show of attacking power after a show of attacking power. 44% of their road games this season in the Premier League have ended over 3.5 goals which is remarkable. They have not perhaps produced the number of clean sheets as they would have liked, as they have taken one in just 25% of their away games. Both teams have scored in 62% of their away games.
Liverpool have scored in each of their last eight games and while Everton have actually done alright recently on home soil, winning three of their last four, it is perhaps their last home fixture which paints a picture for this one. Last weekend Everton played host to Manchester City and barely raised threat in a limp 3-1 loss against the league leaders. With Liverpool having beaten Man City in both the league and now in a Champions League game this season, it stands to reason that they can do the number on Everton.
Everton have scored in each of the last five home games and at least two in seven of their nine home wins this season. So they should play their part in a high scoring game turning up here and over 3.5 goals is coming in at 2/1 odds with bet365* (betting odds taken on April 5th, 2018 at 3:08 a.m.) which should appeal to punters. But still, whatever they have to throw at Liverpool probably won’t be enough on the day to stop the powerful red juggernaut.
