The curse of the unders in the VSiN EPL BetCast finally ended last weekend when champions elect Manchester City's eased to another 3-0 win over Tottenham.
This Saturday's match is another mouth-watering clash, as defending champions Liverpool try to salvage their season when they host neighbors and city rivals Everton at Anfield, kick-off 12:30 p.m. EST.
Liverpool have had a dreadful run of results and injuries, but Jurgen Klopp's side produced their best performance of a what has been a disappointing season with a superb and thoroughly deserved 2-0 win over Leipzig in the Champions League on Tuesday. That win was a huge morale booster for the Reds and especially for their scrutinized manager Klopp and their equally scrutinized goalkeeper Brazilian international Alisson (who kept a clean sheet).
The Reds are -225 for the win, and with three points here and with matches to come against Fulham and Sheffield United, they could get back into the Champions League positions and keep the pressure on Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester in the chase for runner-up this season.
I do believe that Liverpool win this match as their record at Anfield against Everton is an impressive one with the red side of the city unbeaten in this fixture in 24 matches -- a run going back all the way to 1999 when Cher was top of the Billboard charts with "Believe". If you believe that the Blues can win this one you will get + 600 for your money, but that's not a wager that I will be investing in, as I expect the Toffeemen to come unstuck again with their huge injury problems.
Key defender Yerry Mina hobbled of injured in the 3-1 defeat at home to Man City on Wednesday to add to a huge injury list, which sees Lucas Digne, Allan and Dominic Calvert-Lewin on the treatment table, although DCL is expected to return in this one.
Everton also have a huge problem in goal with their keeper Jordan Pickford lacking confidence and a side that has conceded 16 goals in their last six matches which is delightful news for Salah, Mane and Firmino.
I am taking Liverpool to win this and win this rather comfortably in a match that I expect to see goals, and we could actually be in for a rare VSiN BetCast classic and instead of taking the low odds on the over 2.5 goals scored in the match -- which is -180 -- the over 3.5 goals at + 160 looks a nice play.
If you are looking for a better price on a more speculative wager, then Liverpool to get back to winning ways in some style with a 3-1 win is nice outsider at 11-1 and when looking for a goal scorer it's impossible to ignore the claims of the Premier League's top goal scorer Mo Salah, who is + 275 to score the first goal on Saturday and -130 to score at anytime in the match.
