Liverpool make the long term down to Bournemouth to open Super Sunday knowing that three points are a must to keep up their title push.
All seems rosy in Jurgen Klopp’s Anfield garden as they sit just a point off the top of the table, they’ve qualified for the semi-final of the EFL Cup and even the youngster seem to be blooming after 17-year-old Ben Woodburn became the youngest scorer in the clubs history in Tuesday’s quarter-final victory over Leeds.
Given that their opponents Bournemouth have lost three of the last four and the Reds haven’t tasted defeat in the league since all the way back in August, it’s no wonder Liverpool are heavy 8/11 favourites.
So for the benefit of punters looking for a little bit of extra value in Sunday’s early kick-off we’ve picked out three wonderful wagers, let’s talk you through them.
The Reds have been banging in the goals all year, notching up 32 in the league this season. That’s more than any other Premier League outfit and an impressive average of 2.46 a game – bring on the handicap!
Jurgen Klopp’s charges are also one of the most prolific clubs in the league when it comes to covering this particular spread. Of their league nine wins, the Reds have beaten the above handicap five times. It’s more than worth a look for us.
After three clean sheets on the bounce Liverpool one does wonder if Liverpool have addressed the one problem area they’ve had since the opening day.
However, in eight of their nine wins during the campaign the men from Anfield have let one in at the other end. It could be a good value play to back Liverpool’s dirty habit rearing its ugly head again on Sunday.
The Big Belgian has spent most of the season sat close to Klopp on the Liverpool bench, but it looks like he’s making his mark just as his club needs him most.
With Liverpool mourning the loss of Philippe Coutinho to injury, it looked like they had no one to turn to as they attempted to breach the wall in front of Sunderland’s goal last weekend. But, Origi wasn’t settling for a point and opening the scoring with just 15 minutes to go.
He broke the deadlock again on Tuesday night against a brave Leeds showing, you might not want to miss your chance to cash in on him goal for three in-a-row!
