Liverpool head to Stoke looking to tighten their grip on a Champions League place and bookies strongly fancy their chances, Betfred making them odds-on at 4/6 to collect a crucial three points at the Britannia Stadium, where the Potters are Boylesports’ 5/1 outsiders.
However, while the Reds’ impressive season to date makes them worthy favourites, they’re simply too short to recommend here and indeed, there’s a chance that Mark Hughes’s charges could cause an upset.
The hosts are no pushovers on their own patch and indeed a slip-up against Norwich is their only home defeat in the league in ten outings. Brendan Rodgers’s troops meanwhile, do their best work at Anfield and have managed only three away victories all season so they certainly can’t be relied upon.
Stoke, who have taken four points from Chelsea and Everton on home soil lately, look too big then at 5/4 when given a goal start in bet365′s handicaps but at a heftier 7/2 via BetVictor, the Potters are worth a flutter in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
