There is Monday night football for English Premier League fans to bet on and we take a look at the Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton from a betting angle.
OUTRIGHT BETTING UPDATE
Lets start with a look at the latest outright betting which see Manchester City regain favouritism albeit just after gaining 2 points on Arsenal over the weekend. City are now 21/20 to win the title with The Gunners out from 8/13 to 11/10. Manchester United have shortened to 12/1

Liverpool are 10th on the log and they have only taken 1 point from the last 12 points they have played for. Last time out they were beaten 3-0 on the road by Wolves and their last home game was a goalless draw against Chelsea.
Overall at home this season Liverpool have played 10 winning 6, drawing 3 and losing 1 match. Digging into their goal stats at home 60% of Liverpool games at Anfield have seen over 2.5 goal backers collect profits and Liverpool have scored 23 and conceded 9 in 10 matches.
Everton are currently 18th on the log the final relegation spot. They grabbed a much needed 1-0 home win over Arsenal last time out and that broke a run of 8 matches in which time they picked up only 2 points.
Everton have only won once in 10 attempts on the road this season with 4 draws and 5 losses and they have only scored 6 goals in 10 away games while conceding 14. That translates only 30% of Everton matches reaching the 3 goal mark.
These sides played out a goalless draw at Everton earlier in the season and last season Liverpool did the double over Everton, winning this fixture 2-0 and beating them 4-1 on the road.

Everton have really been struggling to score goals of late and I am expecting Liverpool to keep things fairly tight on Monday night. My first bet is Everton not to score a goal in the game.
Suggested Bet: Everton under 0.5 goals at 13/10
The other bet I am going to go for is the play on the correct score where I am looking for a workmanlike 2-0 victory from Liverpool.
Suggested Bet: Correct Score, Liverpool 2 Everton 0 at 13/2
