CAST your mind back to August and remember West Brom pumping Liverpool 3-0.
It was a great start for Steve Clarke and a dreadful one for Brendan Rodgers but the roles have been reversed in recent weeks with the Reds going well and the Baggies fading.
I can't see anything but a Liverpool win at Anfield tonight but they are no bigger than 2-5 with firm such as Ladbrokes and I've lost count of the number of times Liverpool have let me down when odds on.
So I'll take the Reds hopefully rather than faithfully and I'm boosted by the knowledge thay have won three in a row at home – without conceding – and are looking more solid as well as balanced with Daniel Sturridge an impressive addition to the ranks.
Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in all of those wins and are 13-10 at Paddy Power to manage to win to nil.
A 2-0 victory pays 7-1 at Betvictor but wouldn't Liverpool love to “level it on aggregate” with a 3-0 success at 10-1.
The first-scorer cash will probably be divided between Luis Suarez at 10-3 (William Hill) and Skybet’s 7-2 shot Daniel Sturridge.
I'm tempted by both to score at anytime and that pays a best £38.20 to a £10 stake at Stan James.
It seems I've written off West Brom but they're in relegation form with just eight points taken from 12 matches. Liverpool almost look banker material and I'd be surprised if they didn't win by at least one (21-20, Stan James).
There's one game in the SPL tonight and Hibs v St Johnstone is quite tough to call. Hibs have had the better of the meetings so far winning 2-0 at home and 1-0 away.
Those stats suggest a Hibs win to nil but I'm not convinced – although I wouldn't argue with anyone who thinking about under 2.5 goals at 4-6 with Skybet or even under 1.5 goals.
Look at Hibs' last four results – 1-0, 0-1, 0-0, 1-1, 0-0 and 1-0. No wonder Easter Road fans are rushing home on Saturday nights to catch the latest edition of Splash.
Hibs' on-loan frontman Leigh Griffiths is 4-1 at Ladbrokes and Skybet to net the opener but he's suffering a bit of a drought.
Four of Saints' last six have been under 2.5 as well so I'm thinking of doing a bet I don't like – no scorer. As it looks a game of few goals this has a chance but obviously the bet could go down in the first minute.
It's not a great punt to have if you're watching the match live but I'll be tuning in to Liverpool v West Brom. No scorer – and remember to take that instead of 0-0 in case of an OG – pays a best 9-1 at McBookie.com and BetVictor.
Under 1.5 goals is a possibility and that pays 85-40 at BetVictor.
I looked at Real Betis v Real Valldolid and Braga v Pacos Ferreira but don't strong opinions on either game. Betis haven't won in five so a home win looks too short while it's fourth v third in Portugal with Braga trying to put surprise guys Pacos in their place.
Again the odds on a Braga win look undervalue and after what happened yesterday with hot favourites Porto and Benfica both drawing it might be worth leaving alone.
