Liverpool V Everton Premier League Betting Tips
The Merseyside derby is one of the oldest local rivalries in world soccer, and it’ll take on huge importance this Monday morning Australian time, with Liverpool sitting two points adrift of the top of the table and Everton still only six points away from fourth. Liverpool have been in devastating form, and it would take one of the upsets of the English Premier League season for Everton to prevent the Reds from winning this one.
Liverpool Commanding Favourites in H2H Betting
Liverpool are 1.36 favourites in head-to-head betting at major online sportsbooks such as bet365, which is no surprise given their unbeaten record in the first 13 games of the season and 5-1-0 record at home – with 14 goals scored and just one conceded. Those head-to-head odds mightn’t seem like amazing value, but this is as good as a sure thing given that they have a 10-2-0 record when starting as favourites and Everton have a 1-3-2 record as underdogs in EPL games this season.

Everton’s are sitting sixth on the table with 22 points, but they have a poor 1-3-2 away record. Despite their poor away record, they’re scoring at an average 1.2 goals per away game this EPL season and have scored in their last their matches at Anfield across all competitions. Given these stats, they must fancy their chances of putting the ball past Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson – even if the Reds end up scoring more than them. Neds are offering 1.80 on both teams scoring in this one.
Will Salah Get on the Scoreboard Again?
Mohamed Salah’s good form is one of the main reasons Liverpool are in title contention, with the Egyptian Striker scoring seven goals in the Premier League so far this season, including five goals from six home games. Salah got on the scoreboard again in the 3-0 away win against Watford last weekend, and Palmerbet have him at 1.73 to score at any time during the Merseyside derby.
Salah has opened the scoring in 4 Liverpool home games this season, so the 3.60 odds being offered by Palmerbet on first goalscorer look particularly attractive heading into this one.
These two sides have hit the woodwork a combined 12 times this season, with Liverpool accounting for eight near-misses and Everton four. With those stats, the odds are one player will hit the post or crossbar in this match, but the question is: which player?
Unibet are offering bets on these Liverpool players hitting the woodwork: Mohamed Salah, 5.50, Sadio Mané, 6.50, Roberto Firmino, 7.50, Xherdan Shaqiri, 8.00, and James Milner, 15.00. For Everton, they’re offering odds on Richarlison, 12.00, Gylfi Sigurdsson, 15.00, and Theo Walcott, 17.00.
Bet365 are offering plenty of specials on this game. We like their 1.80 online betting odds on Liverpool winning the first half, given the Reds have led at half-time in all five of their Premier League wins this season.
