Bellamy the bet to fire Liverpool to victory

© 2009 3X Bet

Liverpool are 1/7 shots to beat Oldham in their third round FA Cup tie at Anfield tonight (8pm KO) and despite their poor home record should have little difficulty landing the odds.

The Reds have won all three previous meetings between the two sides in this competition, and although they have been eliminated at this stage in each of the last two seasons it’s 88 years since they went three consecutive seasons without making it past the third round.

The visitors are currently contesting their 15th consecutive season in the third division and sit 52 places below Liverpool in the Football League. That’s a huge gulf in class, and defeat for the Mersysiders would be a major surprise

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is likely to rotate his squad tonight, which could mean recalls for defenders Jamie Carragher and Sebastian Coates who have not started since the Carling Cup win at Chelsea in late November.

Striker Luis Suarez serves the second game of an eight-match ban, and that is likely to mean a return for Craig Bellamy, who makes plenty of appeal to score first at the 4/1 on offer with Coral.

Liverpool to win 3-0 is my idea of the outcome, and that can be backed at a standout 13/2 with Boylesports.
