It may have been a Championship side that was on the end of a Wolverhampton Wanderer’s pasting in the FA Cup on Tuesday night, but Liverpool should beware a resurgent pack.
Wolves’ 5-0 demolition of Doncaster in the FA Cup makes that eight goals in their previous two games and with four wins from their last five home games, Mick McCarthy’s side are finding some solid form as they look to battle out of the relegation zone.
Wolves currently have relegation odds of 4/5 – decent value in many punters books – but a win against Liverpool on Saturday would push that price out to 1/1 or higher.
Wolves are 9/4 to beat Liverpool and considering the Reds had just two away wins to their name in the whole of 2010 and are yet to pick up even a point away from home in 2011, the value that Wolves are offering is incredible.
Liverpool are on a run of five straight away defeats in the league and new customers who sign up here can pick up a free bet worth £25 – a £25 stake on Wolves beating Liverpool would return £81.25.
Steven Gerrard will once again be absent for the Reds and how Liverpool have missed him during his suspension.
Since Gerrard’s red card at Manchester United, Liverpool have taken just one point from a possible six and have seen their relegation odds cut to 16/1 from 20/1.
A loss to Wolves would see those relegation odds cut once again and Kenny Dalglish would find himself well and truly in a relegation fight as the team’s bottom of the Premier League continues to remain tight.
Punters would do well to take the 16/1 available for Liverpool to be relegated as their current form suggests it’s going to take a lot of hard work from Dalglish before he can turnaround their season.
West Ham are currently the 4/7 favourites for relegation. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
