Liverpool to sweep aside Reading and kickstart their season

Liverpool v Reading
FA Cup 3rd Round Replay

Just when we thought the snow was gone for another year and we could get back to normality we open the curtains to see another white out. Fingers crossed it doesn’t affect the football because Liverpool seem to be gathering some momentum and news of Marouane Chamakh’s arrival in the summer is bound to be something to warm the cockles of the Liverpool fans.

Tonight, Reading are at Anfield hoping to cause an upset but Paddy Power’s betting suggests there is only one winner. Reading are a massive 14/1 still not big enough to tempt punters, they’d probably have more fun throwing their money in the snow. Liverpool are sure fire winners of this match, they are 1/5 favourites which will have people backing them in multiples, but one market that maybe worth backing outright is Liverpool with a -2 handicap at 6/4!

1/5 Liverpool Win
9/2 Draw
14/1 Reading Win

Handicap Betting
6/4 (-2) Liverpool
11/4 (-2) Draw
5/4 (+2) Reading

Snow Resolution / Money-Back Special

Reading and Liverpool played out a draw in the first match hence the replay at Anfield, a few of last night’s replays went to extra time in order to get a result. Liverpool fans will be hoping that such a nerve jangling repeat doesn’t happen tonight but it if does Paddy Power may come to their rescue.

Because if the match does go to extra time Paddy Power will refund all losing 1st/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets on the match!

Fernando Torres has said Steven Gerrard’s 2006 FA Cup final heroics are an inspiration to him and the other team members. Back at Anfield and with the team playing well Torres is the player that the punters up and down the country will be piling into. He’s 11/4 for the first goal and 12/5 to score 2 or more both of which are pretty short so go bigger and look at him to get himself a hat-trick at 15/2 or Torres scoring first and Liverpool winning 3-0 at 14/1.

First Scorer Betting
11/4 Torres
7/2 Gerrard
4/1 N-gog
5/1 Kuyt
6/1 Benayoun
13/2 Babel
11/1 Rasiak
12/1 Long
