Liverpool FC v Hull City tips – Tigers won’t be tamed by off-colour Reds
Liverpool are a shocking price to beat Hull on Saturday after a rocky start to the season
October 24th, 2014
All is not well at Anfield, with Brendan Rodgers probably kicking himself for failing to sign Loic Remy before settling for the “gamble” that is Mario Balotelli and it appears to be a losing wager for the Liverpool manager.
The Italian has failed to score a Premier League goal since arriving from Milan for £16 million and might well be dropped for Saturday’s encounter, with his manager keen to take the focus away from a striker whose lack of work ethic renders him a luxury item.
BetVictor are predictably best price about a home win on Saturday but can you really lump on Liverpool with any level of confidence at odds of 9/20 considering they have already dropped points at home to Aston Villa and Everton this term.
Wednesday’s 3-0 reverse at the hands of Real Madrid will have knocked confidence levels and it’s possible that Raheem Sterling could also be left on the bench for this game, with Adam Lallana set to come into the starting XI.
Simon Mignolet is starting to show that he’s one of the weakest links behind a defence that has kept just one clean sheet all season, with last Sunday’s 3-2 win at QPR far from convincing against the worst team in the Premier League.
So it’s all about backing Hull in some shape or form, with Steve Bruce’s team playing a more offensive brand of football than in previous seasons and it reaped dividends last weekend when drawing 2-2 at the Emirates.
The Tigers have only lost one of their four matches on the road this season and bet365 go 7/1 about them winning at Anfield, while the draw can be backed at 15/4 with bet365.
Bet365 go 9/5 about Hull and the Draw on the Double Chance market and we have to take advantage of the bookmakers continuing to overrate Liverpool.
