FOOTBALL BETTING: There’s some cracking football for punters to get stuck into this weekend. Jonathan Shepherd previews the action and picks out his weekly five fold acca which pays 17/1.
888Sport have the best price about Liverpool who are 9/10 to complete the double over Everton (7/2 William Hill). Improving Everton haven’t won at Anfield for 11 years which suggests a point might be their best hope at 13/5 with Betdaq.co.uk.
A repeat of last seasons 1-1 draw can be backed at 6/1 at Victor Chandler but I suspect a home win by a goal to nil might be the order of the day (6/1 Ladbrokes) with a saver on Steven Gerrard to score at any time at 13/8; totesport.
Later tomorrow afternoon, Manchester United should ease back to the top of the table and look a steal at 4/9 (Stan James) to beat Portsmouth by more than one goal.
Neighbours Manchester City have drawn five away and Hull five at home and the Tigers can build on their midweek draw with Chelsea by forcing another stalemate (11/4 Jaxx.com).
A share of the spoils at 9/4 with Partybets.com also looks the safest option in ESPN’s evening kick off between fellow Champions League hopefuls Spurs (11/10 bet365) and Aston Villa (13/5 Victor Chandler).
On Sunday lunchtime Sky viewers will relish the 4/5 Paddy Power post against impressive Birmingham beating local rivals Wolves (4/1 Victor Chandler) and at 4pm home form should see Chelsea (8/11 Betfred) effectively end Arsenal’s title hopes. The Gunners are 4/1 at Stan James and the draw is 12/5 at bet365.
