Have you worked out your bets for the big game at the Brittania Stadium? We’d be keen to hear what they are (leave them in the comments below).
As usual, we have £10 to spend on the Liverpool match, with all our profits(!) will be going to charity :)
This has all the makings of a tough match. Stoke are a physical side who managed to hold Chelsea to a goalless draw on the first day of the season, and they have their defending sorted. Unfortunatley they lack a bit going forwards, though Peter Crouch’s acquisition may change all that – and how many times have we seen players play well against their former clubs?!
That said, with Liverpool’s hard-working midfield and extra cutting edge up-front (even on Chelsea) we think they will have just about enough about to make their mark. We’re predicting a 2-0 win to Liverpool. (best odds of 10/1 are available at Tote Sport, where new account holders get a free £10 bet).
Liverpool have been quick off the blocks in two of their three Premier League games this season, with Suarez scoring on 12 minutes on the first day, and Henderson grabbing a goal inside 15 minutes last time out. They may not have managed to break Arsenal’s defence before the half-time whistle, but as title challengers thats to be expected. With this (and the attacking football we now play) in mind, we think that backing Liverpool to be leading at both half-time and full-time is a great bet – especially at 5/2 with Bet Clic.
Shove this bet on with Marcel Desailly’s favourite bookmakers and you can’t lose – because it’s your first bet, if Liverpool don’t win at ht/ft then you will get your money back. This isn’t like a normal free-bet where they make you spend it on the site, you can actually just take your money back. If you stuck £30 on (the maximum Bet Clic will refund you) you would walk away £105! All completely risk-free!
