There’s just a few hours until The Reds kick-off the new Premier League season against Norwich. The game will be at Anfield and of course will be covered by Sky Sports as part of their increasingly popular Friday Night Football presentation.
Before that happens though, we have the opportunity to get some serious value bets on for the season. Ante-post or season long bets can throw up some extremely sweet opportunities for bettors. The downside is the fact you have to wait nine months to get weighed in.
Here are our top 5 season long Liverpool bets;
5) Premier League Top Goalscorer – Mo Salah – 1pt Each-way @ 5/1 with William Hill
This looks like a shot to nothing really with the each-way places paying the top 4. The Egyptian King will be in the team more than any of his team mates in attacking positions. Mane will miss a game or two as the season begins due to African Cup exploits. Firminho will be rotated every now and then with Origi. Another huge benefit to Salah is he’ll be on pens and we can expect to see far more awarded in general and particularly to Liverpool than last season with the introduction of VAR.
Competition from other players primarily comes in the shape of Kane, Aguero and Aubameyang. Kane can be expected to be injured at some point as is becoming normal, Aguero will share minutes with Jesus more this season and Aubameyang will have two other forwards to divvy the goals between with Lacazette and new arrival Pepe surely shooting rather than passing once in the box.
4) Premier League Golden Glove – Alisson – 2pt Win @ 13/8 with William Hill
We think this market is priced up wrong at Sky Bet and that Alisson should be favourite here, something that Paddy Power agrees with as they have him at just 5/6. This is a two-horse race and with uncertainty at both right and left back for City, we will rely on the Brazilian stopper on Merseyside getting it done again, just like last season.
3) Total Season Points – Liverpool Over 84.5 – 5pts @ 3/4 with Sport Nation
Klopp’s men won this market last year when beating their 80pt line by a comfortable 17 points, what an incredible 97pt haul it was! We think their tally will be lower this term but only by 6 or 7. Don’t worry though Reds’ fans, we also believe that City will be focused on the Champions League primarily and will suffer slightly in the league because of that. Over 84.5 points looks well beatable and it’s worth jumping on this now as the market won’t be up come kick-off in the Norwich match.
2) Premier League Winner – Liverpool – 3pts @ 11/4 with Mr Green
Only 2 points separated Liverpool and City last season, yes…still pains me too. There were games we can look back on and say we were fortunate to get 3 points but the same can be said about games that could have gone for us. Just as Mahrez missed the pen, we had the ball 11mm off going in when 0-0 at the Etihad.
Kompany left and told the Citizens ”now we must win the Champions League”. There will be a greater emphasis there for City and that small difference could be all Liverpool need. 11/4 looks too big given how close the two teams were last season.
1) Liverpool Top Premier League Scorer – Mo Salah – 10pts @ 6/10 with Mr Green
For all the reasons we mentioned in our 5th best tip of the season, we have to bet Salah to be our top scorer this season. The few extra games he will play will see him ahead of the only slight danger Mane. The first game will be one of those where he starts and Mane probably doesn’t. With our record against Norwich, goals could be plentiful and Mo can get us off to a proper start.
