Action Report: Bettors on Liverpool, Over

Aug 24, 2015 |
The lone Barclays Premier League match is a big one as Arsenal hosts Liverpool in a battle of two clubs with Champions League aspirations.

Liverpool has a pair of wins from its first two games of the season and has yet to concede a goal. Arsenal, on the other hand, lost its first match to West Ham and then eked out a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace last week.

According to a spokesperson with Pinnacle Sports, the majority of bettors are backing Liverpool (69.3 percent) in spread markets, but substantial bets are coming in on the home team.

"?Liverpool opened at -122, however the price in now at +103, the best price available at any sports book," Pinnacle says. "Those Arsenal bets may have been far more substantial than the LFC majority."

Neither club has looked particularly formidable with the ball moving forward to start the season, but bettors see goals in this one. Pinnacle Sports states 60 percent of bets are backing Over 2.5 goals.

"For Totals, the Over opened at +105, then went as high as +119 but have now reverted back to just over opening price of +107," says Pinnacle.  "That could be explained by bigger bets having come in for the Under line."
