Norwich and Hull will be looking as forward to their trips to Anfield and the Emirates tonight about as much as a turkey does to Christmas.
With both sides away form about as inspiring as as Boris Johnson’s IQ-test results – Liverpool and Arsenal look home bankers.
But a win double on the Reds (2/7) and the Gunners (2/9) in the win-draw-win market returns a paltry £/€15.71 to a £/€10 stake.
Think it’s worth a punt? Good luck if you do – and have a Happy Christmas. On your own.
But we like to roll a little differently here at the Paddy Power Blog. And we might just have come up with a couple of doozies to give you a little more reward for your risk.
Got your attention? Good. Let’s begin.
The Reds have put five past the hapless Canaries in their last two league meetings (5-0, 2-5) with tormentor-in-chief Luis Suarez bagging a hat-trick in both games.
Arsenal have won five of their last six league games at home and their last six wins have been to ‘nil’ in all competitions.
It makes sense then to try and get swing the odds a little in your favour with a look at the win to nil, clean sheet and handicap markets*.
- A £/€10 Liverpool / Arsenal ‘Win to Nil’ double returns £/€36.67
- A £/€10 Liverpool / Arsenal ‘Keep a Clean Sheet’ double returns £/€31.82
- A £/€10 Liverpool / Arsenal (-1 on the handicap) double returns £/€28.79
So book the remote and make sure you’re the one shouting louder than Jeff Stelling come 9.30pm tonight.
*Returns based on Paddy Power’s prices at midday.
