2016-17 EPL: Liverpool vs Everton Betting Tips

Liverpool vs Everton Preview
Whatever may be the respective positions in the Premier League table, whenever neighbors Liverpool and Everton meet, it is a cracking affair. Liverpool are trying to stay alive in the top-four race while Everton are making a serious effort at breaking into the top-six. What more can you ask from a Merseyside Derby that will be played at Anfield on Saturday, April 1st.

Season so far
It’s been a topsy-turvy season for Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp’s men oscillating from being title contenders to top-four strugglers. They currently are fourth in the table with 56 points from 29 matches. Having played two matches more than their nearest competitors Arsenal and Manchester United, Liverpool will have a bigger stake going into this derby.

Everton under Ronald Koeman on the other hand have been shaping up well this season. After a below-par start, they have picked pace and are currently trying to disrupt the top-six. At 50 points from 29 matches, they have an outside chance of even upstaging their famed neighbors.

Red or Blue?
After a dreaded start to 2017, Klopp arrested the slide with three unbeaten matches before the international break. That’s not a solace especially since their title ambitions are now all but dusted. To keep their hopes of qualifying for Champions League alive, the Reds must keep winning.


Everton on the other hand have so much to gain and very little to lose. Eight wins and just one defeat in their last 12 Premier League matches make them one of the in-form teams in England at the moment. Their away form is dicey though having won only two of their last six league matches while conceding in nine of their last 12 matches away from Goodison Park.

Liverpool conceded in ten of their 14 home matches while scoring in 13 of those. There’s a very high probability of both the sides finding the net this weekend. The odds being offered on that punt are $1.75 (bet365).

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last seven meetings with Everton having won three of them. That probably explains why they are favourites to win at odds of $1.73 (William Hill). But Everton are in cracking form at the moment and back them to bag a point at least from this trip. Odds offered on a draw are $3.80 (bet365) which isn’t too bad an option to back.

Romelu Lukaku is the flavour of the season for the Toffees having bagged 21 Premier League goals so far. The big Belgian has netted nine times in his last six matches failing to score only once during that time. Odds offered on him scoring anytime are $2.62 (Ladbrokes) and that appears to be a very lucrative punt.
At odds of $2.4 (William Hill), Sadio Mane should be a good punt to score for Liverpool.

TIP: Both teams to score – $1.75 at bet365
