Manchester United vs Liverpool Betting Preview Part 3

Liverpool to pull off a 1-0 win (which sounds like some dour watching for United fans) would reward at a 12/1 price - the same listing as a 2-1 victory for the Reds as well. A 2-2 shootout would reward at 14/1 while a 3-3 draw pays an impressive 50/1. If things get going early, that is not beyond the realm of possibility. 


Robin Van Persie will not play in this match according to the media and it looks like Wayne Rooney will have to step up once again. Luckily for Manchester United fans, Rooney is on another one of his famous purple patches and he’ll be looking to pick up the side by the scruff of the neck and really stamp his signature on this fixture. 

Bookmakers have Wayne Rooney listed at a 7/4 margin to score anytime - that’s the same price as Javier Hernandez (who is due for a start) and Danny Welbeck. Rooney is trading at 6/1 to score first or last and he’s 8/1 to grab two or more. Rooney trades at 40/1 to score what would be a very famous hat-trick. Given the form he’s in at the moment - that is a very interesting wager. 

Shinji Kagawa is also due for a start, or some time on the pitch at all, as he has seemingly been ignored by David Moyes - much to the chagrin of a large portion of the United faithful. Kagawa can be backed at a 7/2 price tag for an anytime goal (a play you want to make if he starts) while he is 11/1 to score first and 10/1 to score last (that’s a bet you want to take a look at if he comes in off the bench with 25 or 30 minutes remaining. 

Luis Suarez is a 7/4 price to grab an anytime goal and he’s 7/1 to score first and 6/1 to score last. Daniel Sturridge has been banging in the goals as well lately and looks decent value at 11/4 for an anytime strike. United’s defenders might be paying more attention to Suarez’s tricky runs and this will open up opportunities for Sturridge to get behind the defenders. 

As usual, Steven Gerrard is always a decent bet for Liverpool and he’s 4/1 to score anytime - a score that looks even better when you remember that he’s taking freekicks and the majority of the team’s penalties.
