Liverpool take on the pre season relegation favourites Swansea at Anfield on Saturday but those pre season relegation favourites currently sit in tenth place and are now expected to put up a strong fight for safety this season according to the bookies, who seem to be admitting that they underestimated Swansea before the season started. Liverpool should be looking to win this game but they too will have to ensure they don’t underestimate the visitors.
The bookies will be hoping they haven’t got the odds on Swansea wrong yet again, Liverpool are the hot favourites in this match and can be backed at 3/10 to win this game at the time of writing. Not many will be having big singles on at that sort of price so if looking for a bit of an odds boost try backing Liverpool -1 in the handicap, that selection is available at around 4/5. Liverpool’s most common result at Anfield this season has bizarrely been the draw, that outcome is 9/2 and certainly makes more appeal than an away win which is 11/1 currently.
Swansea could struggle in this match with their away record leaving a lot to be desired, Swansea have managed to pick up 12 points this season in the Premiership but worryingly for them 11 of those points have come at home. Swansea have had some tough away fixtures (Arsenal, Man City, Chelsea) but also lost at Norwich and drew at Wolves so fans at Anfield can be fairly confident of a home win.
This is Swansea’s first season in the Premiership so this will be the first meeting between the two teams in this competition meaning bets should be picked on this season’s form only. Swansea have not only struggled for results on the road but they have also struggled defensively with 14 goals conceded in 4 away matches. That means Liverpool should be looking to score around three goals on Saturday, the 3-0 scoreline can be backed at 7/1 and that could prove more popular than a 2-0 win which is 6/1.
Luiz Suarez is likely to carry more goal threat than any other player on the pitch once again, the best bet of the game could prove to be Suarez to score at anytime, that outcome should be well backed at 5/6 with one bookie at the time of writing. The Uruguayan is also a decent bet to open the scoring at 10/3 whilst a hat trick isn’t completely out of the question at 16/1 with some bookies. Charlie Adam is also capable of getting on the scoresheet, he has an eye for the spectacular goal and will also fancy his chances from set pieces, Adam is 5/2 to score at anytime in this match.
