'Super Sunday' lives up to its billing this weekend with two heavyweight clashes back to back. Perennial Premier League battle Manchester United against Liverpool is first up after lunch, and we have some free football betting tips for you.
For the first time in many a year Liverpool head into the final ten games of the season with a sizeable advantage over their Manchester rivals. At times David Moyes' men have been the laughing stock this year, with last week's away defeat to Olympiacos cited as a new low by the United boss.
In the words of Roy Keane, the 'flat' performance was probably the aspect that would disappoint most fans, if they cannot raise their game whilst entertaining their fierce rivals on Sunday, they are going to lose.
Despite their Champions League misdemeanours, United actually boast some decent form in the league. Seven points from nine and no goals conceded is a decent return, especially considering these were all away ties. Juan Mata has been a terrific signing on paper, even though he has been shoe horned into the team since his arrival.
They face a Liverpool side that has won their last four games and now sit second in the table. Efficiently going about their business, The Reds have emerged as genuine title contenders over the last few months, irrespective of what their manager may think of their chances. Although a win for United would chop a few points out of the race for the forth Champions League spot, it is still unlikely that they could chase it down by the end of the season. For Liverpool, Sunday's clash is arguably their toughest match left this season and they have had two weeks to prepare for it. With the away win best priced at 19/10, a United victory 31/20 and a draw at 5/2, it is clear the bookies are sitting on the fence with this one, perhaps a draw is a sensible call.
However, given the fact that the match is of more importance to Liverpool and United have Champions League commitments on the horizon, back a Liverpool win and over 2.5 goals at 14/5 with William Hill. With 78% of away games involving Brendon Rodgers' men featuring over 2.5 goals, this is a generous price.
Being a televised game this weekend, the match falls under a favourite promotion of ours, Betfred's '1 a piece' offer. With the one all draw offering a refund, this certainly gives us free reign to have a punt on a correct score, especially as 1-1 is one of the favourites outright anyway. Therefore, back the 2-2 draw at 12/1 with Betfred. With the previous statistic of over 2.5 goals, this bet could be extremely good value.
After experiencing a goal drought of some sorts, Luis Suarez put any of the early doubters to bed with the opening strike against Southampton last time out. Given his history with United, you would certainly expect him to be raring to go on Sunday. Priced at 6/1 with Coral to open the scoring, this is a ludicrous shift from the 13/8 he was attracting earlier in the season. Although it is very tempting, first goalscorer bets can be a little bit of a lottery. With this in mind, back him to score anytime at 7/4 with the same bookmaker.
Finally, for a little bit of a long shot, the corresponding fixture earlier in the season saw Liverpool run out 1-0 winners thanks to Daniel Sturridge's early strike. Man of the match that day was Martin Skrtel thanks to a fine defensive display, rumour has it Robin Van Persie has only just escaped from his pocket. The Slovakian international has certainly had his moments at both ends of the pitch this year and in fact opened the scoring against both Arsenal and Chelsea. With Liverpool having a 65% ratio for scoring first in away games, the second best in the division, and United having the sixth worst for home games at 46%, back Skrtel to notch first at 40/1 with Bet365.
