Liverpool look lovely at evens

Posted on by Tom Warrington

Liverpool face a trip to the Stadium of Light to take on Sunderland today (3pm KO, Live on ESPN) but look a great bet at even money but if the stats are anything to go by.

The last time Sunderland won in this fixture was back in 2009 when the winner came courtesy of a beach ball thrown on to the pitch.

That is the only time that the Black cats have won in the last 11 league meetings between the two sides, and Liverpool have won eight of them encounters.

It’s true that Sunderland have improved out of all recognition under Martin O’Neill, and that Liverpool have managed to win just one and lost three of their last five matches on the road.

But Kenny Dalglish’s men have won four and lost one of their last five visits to the Stadium of Light, with the home side netting just one goal in total in those five matches.

That makes them look a good bet at evens with the likes  with with bet365 and Paddy Power, and in Luis Suarez they have a striker in-form who has scored in both of his Premier League appearances against Sunderland.

The Uruguayan is a 6/5 chance with Betfred to score anytime and that looks fantastic value.
