Our Top Odds Pick – Takumi Minamino to Score Anytime – 29/10 at Unibet
Liverpool’s Japanese ace has taken full advantage of his only two starts this season, netting three times, including one against Arsenal in the Community Shield.
He is sure to start once again against the Gunners and odds of almost 2/1 are pretty generous for a man who is arguably the Reds’ most likely goalscorer.
Our Long Shot – Over 4.5 Match Goals – 4/1 at 888sport
Liverpool are already averaging four goals per game this season, while the visitors have scored twice in all but one of their matches so far.
The score was 3-1 when the teams met in the league last Sunday, so punters are sure to snap up odds of 17/10 on there being over 3.5 goals this time around.
But if you’ve got the cojones to back over 4.5 goals, you might end up with a smile larger than Jurgen Klopp himself.
Our Extra Pick – Liverpool to Win & Both Teams to Score – 12/5 at bet365
Liverpool should prove to be too strong for Arsenal, but the Gunners are capable of causing the Liverpool defence real problems.
So a punt on Liverpool to win and both teams to score, at a tasty 12/5 with bet365, could prove to be profitable.
