Liverpool vs Everton by Jamesington
Liverpool have drawn 3 of their last 4 matches.
Liverpool have also drawn 4 of their last 5 matches against top half sides.
Everton have drawn 3 of their last 5 away matches.
Everton have drawn more away matches than ANY other club.
No club has drawn more Premiership matches, in total, than Everton.
When these two clubs met earlier in the season the outcome was a draw and I think we will see a repeat of that result this weekend.
Everton and Liverpool are 5th and 6th in the league respectively and Everton are chasing a Europa League spot for next season, points are important at this stage of the year.
The Merseyside derby is a traditionally intense match with neither side wanting to lose against their biggest rivals. Despite coming off the back of a 6-0 win against Newcastle this will be a tight game as both sides have a good recent defensive record - both only having conceded in 1 of their past 4 games.
All statistics therefore point to a close match, with both teams not unfamiliar with matches resulting in draws this year! I can't see any value in backing either team to win and it is hard to call whether the match will be a defensive stalemate or a goalfest, either way it looks likely to be a tight affair.
Go for the draw (Although 2-2 at 16.0 with BetVictor is not the worst bet in the world).
