Keeping things tight at the back has become a key component in Liverpool’s improved form of late and the 5/6 offered that they shut out Wigan could prove the best bet of their clash at Anfield.
In the period since Kenny Dalglish was appointed manager, no team has collected more Premier League points and another three should follow against Wigan.
They have won their last four Premier League games and seven of the last nine that they have played at Anfield.
Liverpool’s betting odds are 1/3 to beat Wigan and continue their winning run, but based on prior seasons Wigan should not be given no hope of obtaining a result.
Wigan have only lost one of their last four league meetings with Liverpool and have strung together a three-match unbeaten run, which has taken them to within goal difference of moving out of the relegation places.
It is 9/1 in the Premier League betting that Wigan leave Anfield with the three points, while they are 18/5 to secure a draw.
To Win To Nil
Improving Liverpool defensively has been one of the key roles carried out by Dalglish since arriving at the club and they have conceded just four goals in his six league games in charge.
However, clean sheets have been kept in each of the last four and there is every chance that another will be secured against a Wigan side just ten goals in their 12 away games this season.
Punters expecting Liverpool to keep a clean sheet may instead prefer the better value on offer of 11/10 that they win without letting in a goal.
Luis Suarez will also be itching for a first start since arriving from Ajax and if he is selected he could be worth backing at 3/1 in the first goalscorer betting market.
A £25 stake on the scorecast of Liverpool winning 1-0 and Suarez scoring first would return £400. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
