Premier League Betting: Liverpool favourites to claim rare victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge | Goal.com
20th September, 10:18The Reds have struggled in recent years and players can be on both sides of the bet with the Betfair Exchange
Liverpool face their toughest test of the Premier League season so far when they travel to Chelsea looking to make it six Premier League wins from six games.
The Reds have won 14 league games in a row dating back to March but have struggled against the Blues in recent years, beating the west London side just once in 90 minutes in the last seven meetings in all competitions.
Despite that, Betfair Sportsbook offer Jurgen Klopp's men at Evens (2.0) to win at Stamford Bridge for the first time in three years but punters can get extra value on the Betfair Exchange where the Reds are 21/20 (2.05).
What is the Betfair Exchange?
The Betfair Exchange is the world's largest sports betting exchange. It follows the model of a stock exchange but replacing share trading with betting odds on events in the world of sport, politics and entertainment. T&Cs apply.
On any betting market, there are two sides of the bet. On one side, there are those who think an event will happen (backers) and on the other, those who think it won't happen (the layers).
The Betfair Exchange allows customers to bet against each other rather than a traditional bookmaker, meaning players can set their own odds which may be longer than regular sportsbooks.
Backers and layers get bets 'matched' as long as they agree on a price (the odds) that an event will or won't happen.
Chelsea vs Liverpool Betting
These two sides have a storied recent history dating back to the tenures of Jose Mourinho and Rafa Benitez, with Liverpool certainly likely to feel they have the upper hand this time around.
Klopp's side beat the Blues as recently as April when Mohamed Salah scored one of the goals of the season in a 2-0 win, and also ousted Frank Lampard's men on penalties in the UEFA Super Cup in August.
The 21/20 (2.05) quote on the Betfair Exchange for Liverpool to win could be a popular selection for punters, especially given that Chelsea have not won at home yet this season.
How does the Betfair Exchange work?
By matching customers, rather than taking the risk itself, the Exchange provides the option to 'lay' - betting on something not to happen.
Betting against other customers removes the need for the margin that fixed-odds bookmakers incorporate into their prices and provides the opportunity for a more efficient marketplace, which is why you can often get better odds on the Betfair Exchange. Instead, customers pay a small commission, but on winnings only.
How do I sign up to the Betfair Exchange?
