Betting Tip: Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals

Liverpool cruised to the final of the League cup midweek and hardly had to come out of second gear to defeat an underwhelming Arsenal. The energy saved in that game should mean that they aren’t in the worst condition for this one at Selhurst Park.

Palace have had plenty of plaudits this season for their enterprising approach to games but you have to wonder how far that can stretch because the wins have rarely followed. The Eagles have won just 5 games this term, the same amount as Everton and Leeds and just 1 more than Watford. They’ve been plagued by late goals going in the other end and any lack of concentration against the Reds are likely to be punished even if they are without Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.

The hosts may well get on the scoresheet here but it’s hard to see the visitors not notching at least twice, it’s something they’ve achieved in a large percentage of their games this season. With over 2.5 goals backers being paid out in the last 5 matches at Selhurst maybe taking the away win and over 2.5 at 13/10 is the smartest way to go on Super Sunday.

Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals - 1pt @ 13/10
I’ll also have a dabble on Fabinho to score again at a bulbous 15/2. He was on penalty duty last time out with no Salah available and may continue to do so. Given Liverpool to score a penalty is around 7/2 taking the man likely to be on them at a much bigger price looks a canny way in. He’s also a threat from set pieces as seen against Brentford and Palace have a terrible defensive record from corners.
Fabinho to score anytime - 0.5pts @ 15/2
