Another disappointing result on Saturday with the home draw against Stoke and we continue to see why Liverpool aren’t on course for a top four finish this season, a lack of goals at Anfield has left the club with seven draws and just four wins on home soil. This week’s game looks ideal though as Liverpool look to get back on track with three points, Liverpool have a trip to Bolton to look forward to on Saturday.
Liverpool are available at 4/6 to win this match which on initial inspection looks a pretty good price for Liverpool fans or anyone looking to back Liverpool this week. The draw is available at 11/4 whilst Bolton can be backed at 5/1 for a shock win. This season’s form points towards an away win as a very good bet, Liverpool tend to win or lose at home having drawn just one game on the road this season whilst Bolton have drawn just once all season home or away so the draw looks the least likely result. Liverpool have the fifth best away record in the league this season and have won half their away games in the Premiership whilst Bolton have lost an amazing eight out of ten home matches (the worst home record in the league) so the 4/6 does look really good on Liverpool whilst it’s difficult to make a case for Bolton after just one home win all season.
Previous meetings between the sides at the Reebok Stadium also point towards a win for Liverpool. Bolton have been much stronger in years gone by at home but have still struggled to contain Liverpool who have won their last four visits to Bolton and lost just one of their last six at the Reebok. More reasons to back Liverpool at 4/6 to win this one. All four of Liverpool’s recent wins over Bolton have been by one or two goal margins and those could be worth following again, Liverpool are 3/1 to win this game by a one goal margin whilst a two goal winning margin for Liverpool is priced up at 15/4 in this match.
Bolton have struggled for goals in many matches this season, no real surprise with David N’Gog up front for them, the ex-Liverpool man has just two goals in sixteen Premiership matches for his new club. Bolton have failed to score in three of their last six league matches whilst Liverpool have kept clean sheets in five of their last nine games in all competitions. This points towards a clean sheet for Liverpool in this match and that’s a decent bet at 5/4 but an even better bet should be Liverpool to win to nil at 7/4. With Liverpool likely to keep a clean sheet and win this by one or two goals the best bets by far in the correct score betting should be 1-0 and 2-0, those outcomes are available at 6/1 and 7/1 respectively at the time of writing.
