The Premier League gets underway at 12.45pm today as Liverpool host Stoke in the day's early kick-off at Anfield. The match is screened live on BT Sport 1 and presents a good opportunity to get some cash banked to help with a weekend of mammoth punting.
Liverpool start as 2/5 favourites to win the match, Stoke can be backed at 8/1, whilst the draw is available at 7/2. All odds quoted are available with Betfred.
The market to concentrate on in this match is First Goalscorer with Betfred, as their ever popular Double Delight / Hat-trick Heaven promotion is available to take advantage of (not just on this match but on all the weekend's Premier League fixtures). If you are unfamiliar with this brilliant promotion here is a summary…
If your player scores the first goal of the match and then scores another, Fred will double your first goalscorer price. If your player then goes on to score a hat-trick, Fred will treble your goalscorer price.
I would expect Liverpool to win this match fairly comfortably and so I'm concentrating on Reds players in the First Goalscorer market. Looking at Liverpool's expected starting XI, the obvious bet is Daniel Sturridge who scored 11 league goals last season and was first goalscorer on four occasions. Steven Gerrard would also be worthy of a few quid given his tally of ten last season, four of which were first goal.
