London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/09/2012 -- Spread buyers of the Red Devils’ outright championship index will have been delighted with the fightback at Stamford Bridge which saw the club close the gap at the top to two points.
Only a fortnight ago Liverpool dumped their rivals out of the FA Cup after Dirk Kuyt grabbed a late winner to appease spread buyers of the host’s win index that afternoon. Spread bet buyers of Liverpool’s win index this time may have seen that the 2-1 cup win was the third game without defeat against Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
Liverpool’s spread supporters will still be frustrated with the side’s away form that has seen them beaten three times in their past six away league games. There will be further concerns for the Reds’ spread supporters as Liverpool have lost their past three trips to Old Trafford.
Those spread betting enthusiasts debating buying United’s supremacy might be interested to learn that their past three victories over Liverpool have all been by a one goal margin. United’s past two home league games have been won to nil and that should be of importance to match supremacy buyers on Saturday.
Liverpool’s most recent outing at Old Trafford for a league fixture ended in a 3-2 defeat to the joy of total goal buyers that day. Total goal minute buyers will have also made a healthy profit after the sum reached 319 points. Spread punters may well be tempted to buy again on Saturday as United’s game at Chelsea last Sunday reached 343 points following the second half effort. Total goal buyers for United’s game against Liverpool will be buoyed by the news that the champions have racked up 17 league goals in their past six home league games – at an average of 2.83 per contest.
A trait of Liverpool’s past few battles against United has been late goals and that will likely be of interest to those spread punters that enjoy a bet on Sporting Index’s last match goal market. Dirk Kuyt’s winner in the FA Cup arrived in the 88th minute, while Javier Hernandez’s equaliser in the earlier league contest came in the 81st minute.
United and Liverpool have had some feisty games over the years, but sellers of the bookings index on Saturday might have spotted that there was just one caution issued in the recent FA Cup game. Further encouragement for sellers of the bookings index spread is that there were only four yellows brandished in the league match at Anfield this season.
Manchester City travel to Aston Villa on Sunday and spread buyers of their win index will be looking for a fifth win over them in six games. Total goal buyers for the fixture at Villa Park might like to know that there have been an average of 3.4 goals in City’s previous five games against Sunday’s opponents.
