A fond farewell to Steven Gerrard as this final game of the season for Liverpool will be his last at Anfield wearing their colors. Crystal Palace will have a full team as they seek to stop a four game slide. Meanwhile Mamadou Sakho is likely to be a scratch as that pesky hamstring is still giving hi problems. The home team is a heavy favorite in the three line for this one on Saturday. Read on at Apex Soccer Betting to see which way we fall on this one.
Liverpool Will Be Up
Ticket prices for this one on secondary markets have been seen over the thousand pound mark. The demand is way up to see Gerrard do something spectacular. Think of an all star game where they keep feeding him the ball. Totals on the over and for him scoring might be a worthwhile investment for this one. Even if the coach decides to put some of the youth in for seasoning, Jerome Sinclair and the others talent level is not a dip at all.
Crystal Decent Recent History
The Palace has done alright against Liverpool as of late. A 3-3 draw after being three down did the trick against them last year. This year they trumped it 3-1 winning at Selhurst. Yannick Bolasie might be shipped this summer and as a result the team as a whole has collapsed. Since that Manchester City win, the goal to finish in the top half has collapsed. They might just play some fun offense and phone it in for the most part.
Since the 94/95 season, there has always been a goal in this game. While not the best way to start the plea for the over 2 1/2 here, it is a start. Liverpool will be up and wanting to please the crowd. Early leads and pouring it on will do just that. That three goal collapse will be enough to continue to pour it on this edition. Crystal Palace will oblige and seek individual goal scoring chances. The over covers in this one. Check in with us next time at Apex Soccer Betting for more free picks and news at large.
