Now, our resident betting expert has been hard at work looking for the value in this game. Here are his top tips.
Carroll to score at any time against Hearts – 6/4
Carroll is yet to open his goal scoring account for the Reds this season after a busy summer for the England striker at Euro 2012. Carroll’s Liverpool future has been subject of intense speculation of late after he scored just 11 goals in first season at Anfield. But The Tipster’s opening bet for this edition is Carroll to make a statement and score at any time against Hearts at solid odds of 6/4.
Liverpool to win, and under 2.5 goals – 5/2
Although Liverpool succumbed to a disappointing 3-0 loss at the Hawthorns on Saturday, Brendan Rodgers’ side should be too strong for the SPL outfit. Liverpool edged to a 1-0 victory in the away leg of their third-round qualifier against Gomel, and the Tipster is expecting the Reds to win but under 2.5 goals in the match at 5/2.
Liverpool to win and keep a clean sheet – 6/4
Rodgers will have been livid with Liverpool’s lacklustre defending against the Baggies, and the Tipster expects an improved display from the Reds’ back four at Hearts. Liverpool should have enough quality to take a lead back to Anfield. So The Tipster considers Liverpool to win without conceding an excellent shout at 6/4.
Over 3.5 cards in Hearts v Liverpool – 5/6
Liverpool picked up four cautions and a straight red as they suffered a demoralising loss at West Brom. In addition, in Hearts’ opening two SPL games have produced a total of 14 yellow cards and one dismissal. As a result, over 3.5 cards between Hearts and Liverpool looks like unbelievable value at 5/6.
The long shot: Liverpool to beat Hearts 1-0 – 5/1
With Rodgers set to rest the likes of Steven Gerrard and Luis Suárez, his second string will be hopeful of impressing the manager in search of a regular first-team spot. With that in mind, The Tipster’s audacious long shot for this edition is Liverpool to beat Hearts 1-0 at tempting odds of 5/1.
