Big 6 X Overdue

The fourth 'Big 6' match of the season in the EPL today, as Tottenham Hotspur host Liverpool. 

Backing the Draw in these contests since 2012-13 is profitable as readers will know, but the current losing sequence is the longest ever, dating back to February's 2:2 result between today's contestants in the reverse fixture at Anfield. 

Ten losses followed that game to close out the 2017-18 season, and no luck yet in the first three games of this season. 

The previous longest sequence without a Draw was eight in the 2014-15 season. 

If you sensibly ignore matches where the Draw price was 4.0 or higher, the losing sequence is 'only' nine.  

At least the 'Little 14' system is in profit so far, with an ROI of 24.5%. Seven of the eight draws so far this season have come from this category. Five more qualifiers this weekend. With the Champions League next week, all six big boys are in action today.
