Stoke v Liverpool betting
Liverpool travel to Stoke on Sunday looking for their first league win at the Britannia Stadium in the five seasons since Stoke were promoted in 2008.
Indeed, Liverpool have lost their last three league games at Stoke, but bookmakers still make them favourites to win on Sunday at best odds of 4/7 with Paddy Power and Coral. Meanwhile, Stoke can be backed at 6/1 with Bet365 and the draw at 7/2 with Betfred.
Liverpool won the reverse fixture 1-0 earlier this season, although scouser Jonathan Walters had a last minute penalty saved in that game at Anfield and a bet on Stoke to win this one in the 'draw no bet' market at 9/2 with Bet365 looks a decent strategy - especially as Mark Hughes' side are unbeaten in their last 7 home league games.
Luis Suarez has scored 20 goals in 15 league games so far this season and that's one more than the entire Stoke team have managed in 20 games! The Uruguayan can be backed at a stand-out 7/2 with Ladbrokes to open the scoring or 8/11 with Betfred and Coral to score, although it's worth noting that only 5 of those 20 goals were scored away from Anfield and that he has only scored once in his four appearances against Stoke.
Former Liverpool players Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam can be backed at 11/1 and 16/1 respectively with Bet365 to score first and they should be considered as each-way bets. Bet365 offer 1/3 the odds for the 'place' in this market - if your player scores at any time.
Finally, Steven Gerrard scored the first goal in this fixture last season from the penalty spot and the returning Liverpool skipper can be backed at 10/3 with Betfred to score at any time.
