Liverpool v Everton Preview

So it’s the big Merseyside Derby tonight and it’s all to play for with Everton having the chance to leapfrog Liverpool should they win. Liverpool’s form hasn’t been great despite winning the Carling cup and Everton are on a great run. Liverpool aren’t scoring goals very easily despite some decent performances and Everton are not a team that concede many either. Liverpool have won only once in the last 6 games and Everton are undefeated in their last 6, winning 3 and drawing 3.

As much a nuisance Suarez is, I just don’t think he is prolific enough. He has a lot of talent but his finishing is just not there for me at the minute. I think I saw a stat recently that confirmed he scores once every 10 or 15 shots, not a great ratio. With Liverpool struggling for goals and Everton keen to defend, a low scoring affair is certain and a draw the most likely result. Either team could nick it by a goal and so you’d have to say Everton were the value. I’ve gone for a lay as my tip of the day to play it a bit more cautiously.

My prem selections didn’t quite produce the mega profits that I expected over the weekend despite getting off to a decent start with wins for Blackburn at Wolves and Sunderland at home to Liverpool. I just didn’t seem to get the rub of the green and both QPR and Fulham were extremely unlucky to lose in my opinion. Level stakes made a loss of 16.33% based on the best odds available but on the plus side the Kelly stakes returned 31.44% profit! This was because the 2 wins I did get were 2 of the 3 big bets that week and were the ones with the most edge on the odds available. Kelly has now overtaken level stakes and if it keeps it up I am going to have to seriously consider using these stakes for my actual bets. Level stakes is showing a 7.47% profit with Kelly at 10.45%.
