I had not accounted for the absence of Salah and Mane. But January is easy for clubs to navigate? Mainly FA Cup nonsense? And, of course, an early exit from the African competition awaits some.

LIVERPOOL 4/1

That from UNBIASED bookies who are running a business so they'd hardly deliberately give you higher odds for no reason!

Also 2.6m matched on City ............. 942000 on Liverpool.  Weight of money by far on City.

Who will finish second a better question?

Report lurka December 20, 2021 6:30 PM GMT
Weight of money is always on the odds on selection and for every back there is a lay, ie someone betting against them. Weight of money indicates nothing, it just confirms that City are odds on favourites, which the price already tells you.

Do you HONESTLY think Liverpool are quite as good as City?

If so how do you explain that one team are 2/5 to win the league and the other 4/1.  That is a massive, massive difference?

Of course I do and not only that Liverpool are more exciting to watch. Liverpool have scored more goals in all competitions than City. They may very well win the league but when the chips are down in Europe they'll fold again.

I'm going to BLOCK you for talking absolute BIASED nonsense.

Whilst most fans (not me) will sadly be biased toward their own team bookmakers are running a business so obviously it's a FACT that they wouldn't deliberately give higher odds on one team/horse/dog etc etc for no reason yet City are miles and miles clear and shorter priced in the betting yet rather than you simply admit that whilst Liverpool MAY WELL still win it City are the obvious choice.

I'm sorry but I just can't converse with people that will say two and two make five rather than admit something against their team.  I've blocked about a dozen or so on here and it's great I don't have to read their nonsense any more.  You're now another one and it's really no problem to me.

Oh I know and as I said Liverpool COULD POSSIBLY win it of course but come on if you had a gun at your head and they were truly going to pull the trigger if you're wrong surely you'd have to pick City to win it.

Yet the Liverpool fans just blindly will not admit it.  They're actually lying in a football forum how pathetic is that.  Grown men just refusing to simply tell the truth.

Not a fan of Liverpool myself, Lou. A few people reckon the gap between their price and City's is too big given the 3 point gap. One matchday from changing places at the top.

I keep a book on the outright as it develops and have quite a successful record over the years betting on the difference.
Report tobermory December 21, 2021 8:44 PM GMT
I'd say City are the better team, but they are closely enough matched that it is not silly to argue Liverpool are better.

The BIG gap in the odds I don't think is really a reflection on the difference in quality. If they meet in the CL Final I think you'd get 90 min odds like 5/4 City 15/8 Liverpool.

With the Premier Lg betting though other factors are making City so much shorter.

The African Nations sees Liverpool lose their 2 best forwards for a few games.

You'd also expect both clubs might typically lose 3 starters for a while just due to injuries. The drop off to the next guy up is much less with City. Liverpool have a good squad but there are 4 or 5 players that are just levels above the back up that would replace them. eg Origi is a good finisher but his all round skillset does not compare to Mane's.

Then you have the fixtures. City's have been tougher so far and will be easier in 2nd half of season. City's toughest remaining away game as per betting odds will be Arsenal. Liverpool are away to City and Chelsea.
Report unitedbiscuits December 21, 2021 10:21 PM GMT
That is a good analysis, tobermory, but my experience is that it does not pay to look too far ahead. If I have an edge, it comes from the market over-reaction to one matchday. Liverpool currently 5. There may well be a point in the season when City are 5.

I'm on and although 9/4 has gone with the bookies, exchange still go 3.30/3.35 which I consider extraordinary value.

If Liverpool beat Man United tomorrow, I make them outright favourites, given their momentum.

Don't like the run of fixtures Liverpool have before/after the two CF semi legs. Away to Newc at 12.30 sat after a weds 1st leg. Everton and Spurs at home either side of the ties. City play on the Tues and at 5.30 on the sat (not very fair to Liverpool and I thought BT had agreed not to ask a CL team playing weds to play in that slot?).

City's last 3 games are over 2 weeks. Liverpool are going to have 5 games in the same period (incl the cup final). They would want to get the tie with Villarreal over after the first leg, ideally. But the number of games could catch up on them fatigue-wise.
Report lurka April 18, 2022 9:22 PM BST
I'd say there's a good chance that Newc match will be pushed back to 7.45 on the Sat. Criminal if they don't. They have done it before and Pool play Spurs at that time on a Sat after the Villarreal second leg.

Point wasn't that Newc game would be tough. Rather the turnaround and tougher fixtures either side of the CL SF compared to City. But I hadn't factored in City's away game at Wolves, that has to be rearranged too. Just think City already have a bigger squad and will get more chances to rest players. I hope Liverpool win it tho.
