Manchester City vs Liverpool Premier League Betting Tips 04-01-2019
In the race for the 2018-19 English Premier League title, this is as big as it gets. Manchester City v Liverpool, Monday 7 a.m. AEST. Man City: the team everyone thought was a shoe-in to defend its crown. Liverpool: now looking an unstoppable force to win its first league title in almost three decades.
Title on Line in Manchester
Liverpool are on 54 points from 20 matches going into this match, seven ahead of Man City and nine and 11 points ahead of Spurs and Chelsea. Everything is on the line in Manchester. A win for City will bridge the gap at the top to four points and make things interesting. A win for Liverpool, or even a draw, will see bookies slash the Reds’ EPL title odds.
City led the league at the start of December, but lost three of four games before returning to form with a 3-1 win at Southampton. Liverpool, on the other hand, have won nine in a row, scoring 27 goals and conceding three. Given the diverging form lines, we’re shocked at the odds some bookies are offering on Liverpool. PointsBet is paying 3.40 for a Reds win. TopBetta is paying 1.81 for Liverpool or a draw, the very definition of a value bet.
