Liverpool v Wigan Odds: Draw looks a decent bet at Anfield

Liverpool will get another opportunity to improve their dismal home record in the Premier League when they welcome Wigan to Anfield on Saturday afternoon. The Reds have won just three league games on home soil during 2012 and just one so far this season, although the bookies have them as odds on favourites for this weekend's fixture.

Brendan Rodgers' side are currently priced 4/9 by Bet 365, who offer 13/2 for the Wigan win and a tempting 10/3 for the draw. The draw could provide some interest as Wigan have been much-improved this season and it bodes well that they have started the campaign in far more positive fashion than previous years.

They are currently 14th in the league table, just one place behind Liverpool, and it bodes well that they are unbeaten in their last five matches against the Reds. Roberto Martinez will be looking onwards and upwards this season and he will be hoping that he doesn't have to repeat the 'great escape' heroics of last term.

Wigan actually won 2-1 at Anfield last year and the Wigan/draw is 13/8 in the double chance market, while the Wigan win with the draw no bet can be backed at 9/2 with B365. Wigan may have won just two of their last nine league games but they will be buoyed by the fact they won their last away match 1-0 at Tottenham.

They have since fallen to a 2-1 defeat to West Brom but they do tend to raise their games against the 'bigger' teams and Arouna Kone looks capable of continuing the form that has seen him score four goals this season. Kone is 5/1 to score Wigan's first goal on Saturday and the Latics can get on the scoresheet at Anfield.

Liverpool continue to flatter to deceive as a positive performance is more often than not followed by a disappointing effort against opposition they would expect to beat. They may be unbeaten in their last six league games but the fact they have drawn four of those tells its own story.

Brendan Rodgers is indebted to the contributions of Luis Suarez, who has scored eight and set up two of Liverpool's 14 league goals this season. The Uruguayan has been directly involved in 71% of Liverpool's goals this season and it is no surprise to see that he is 4/1 favourite to score first with Bet 365.

Scoring goals has been an issue for a Liverpool side who are without the injured Fabio Borini, Lucas Leiva and Pepe Reina as six of their last nine have gone under 2.5 goals. The under market could be worth a look this weekend as B365 go 6/5 for less than 2.5 goals and seven of the last nine Liverpool v Wigan meetings have gone that way.

Neither side can lay claim to winning form, with Wigan just emerging victorious in just two of their last nine league games, and a low scoring draw could be the way to go, with the correct score of 1-1 available at 7/1. A draw would leave Liverpool with more questions to answer and Wigan looking increasingly at home in mid-table.
