Alan finds value in the draw at ~4.5 while the Omega Betting blog returns after a three month break with some very bold claims.
Tomorrow sees this weekend's only EPL match and as the title says you should be laying Liverpool. Here's why:
Over the past few years I’ve been working on a ratings systems, which I’m pleased to announce is finally complete. I have been focusing my own betting on correct scores and have made a return of 60.22% of stakes in the season to date – Without a losing week
From next week I will be publishing the figures here, free of charge, but here’s a sneak peak at tomorrows game:
Liverpool are over valued: They have a less than 50% chance of victory and are at 1.62 on Betfair. Lay
Goals will be at a premium: There’s is a 58.9% Chance of under 2.5 goals, available to back at 2.32 on Betfair.
The most likely score is Liverpool 1-0 at 13.7% This is available to back at 10 and so represents value.
It’s also likely that I’ll be shutting the blog down in the near future. I’m working on something new which evidently from the lack of posts here has distracted my attention. However I’ll try to post up when time allows, at least to share my new system.60% is rather impressive to say the least, and would see Omega well clear at the top of the FTL table were he competing, so I was very excited to read that:
From next week I will be publishing the figures here, free of chargeI was hoping he meant the selections ahead of time rather than the results after time, but in the end it is a moot point as just a few sentences later, Omega has a change of mind, and writes:

While Omega doesn't actually reveal his price for Liverpool, only that it is greater than evens, my spreadsheet suggests a price of 1.46. 1.61 is thus the price needed for my bet triggering 10% edge, and the best prices available are close to this. Paddy Power and William Hill have 1.62.
As for Omega's expectation of a low scoring afternoon, my Under 2.5 numbers are very close to his - expectation is close at 56.5% (1.71) with both of us way out of line with the market. I also have 1-0 as the most likely correct score, followed by 2-0 and 1-1. Stand by for a 3-3 thriller!
Here are the other Premier Edge selections today for those following.
11:00 Real Sociedad v Levante - Under 2.5 goals (1.96 at Pinnacle)Meanwhile, on a completely different subject, the counter for this blog will tick over the 500,000 hits mark some time today, although the real total is already well past this number as the counter (starting at zero) wasn't introduced until some time had elapsed. According to Blogger, the true number is:
16:00 Valencia v Mallorca - Both Teams to Score: Yes (2.0 at Boylesports)
20:00 Real Madrid v Rayo Vallecano - Real Madrid -2.0 Asian Handicap (1.85 at Pinnacle)
