Liverpool: Formidable But Defensively Reckless

The odds-makers are surely right to see Liverpool as near-certainties here but sloppiness at the back continues to give us a money-making angle.

The bookies have this down as one of the home bankers of the season with Sunderland an eye-watering 16/1 with most firms despite back-to-back victories.

Such is the might of Liverpool that those odds still don’t tempt me, largely because of the performance they have already produced at Anfield including 4-1, 5-1 and 6-1 victories.

But it’s that repeated failure to keep clean sheets which leads us to backing the home win and both teams to score at 8/5 with Betfair. So much better than the best price 1/5 we get on Liverpool simply to take the points!

Indeed just two shutouts in the last 14 Premier League games for the Reds makes this bet almost select itself.

With Defoe and Anichebe in fine fettle for the Black Cats this trend seems highly likely to continue on Saturday.
