The Ball Is Back In Liverpool’s Court
The team at the top of the Premier League has changed 28 times this season and that is a record. Another change is expected tonight after Liverpool beat Huddersfield at Anfield. Manchester City are one point ahead but a superior goal difference makes that in effect two points. Both clubs have three more matches and six wins for the top two will clinch another title for City. Its like a rally at Wimbledon when the ball goes from one side of the net to the other.
The managers know a slip up now would be a catastrophe and the severity of the remaining fixtures suggests neither will drop another point. The outcome could be resolved on the last day of the season and although City look in great nick the value lies in backing LIVERPOOL at 3/1 with bet365 to win the Premier League for the first time and be champions of England and that has not happened for 29 years.
You can lay Liverpool at 1.08 in tonight’s home match against Huddersfield on a betting exchange. That means you are risking eight pounds to win £100 if they lose or the match is drawn. Conversely, money buyers will be considering the return on investment with a Liverpool win and in 90 minutes you earn a much better rate than from a bank account over 12 months.
Huddersfield have not scored in eight of nine away matches and they could find the net a number of times tonight and still lose. A few goals at Anfield for the home team would reduce City’s goal difference advantage which currently stands at eight. Manchester United did Liverpool no favours and Huddersfield will not help City. The best bet is LIVERPOOL -2 at 4/7 with Ladbrokes.
Stephen Maguire was identified as a potential snooker world champion over 10 years ago but it has never happened. He can take a step further that elusive first title by beating James Cahill in the second round of the World Championship in Sheffield. The amateur who knocked out Ronnie O’Sullivan in the first round may have a reality check and STEPHEN MAGUIRE -3.5 is 5/6 with bet365.
It’s the first fixture of the two-day meeting at Sandown that mixes decent Flat racing this afternoon with a brilliant jumps card tomorrow and the finale of the season. The best race of the day is the Group 2 bet365 Mile at 3.35. Addeybb won the Lincoln Handicap and this race last season but the King Power Racing horse BEAT THE BANK has the ratings to prevail at 11/4 with Ladbrokes.
