The draw for the third round of the FA Cup was notable for a lack of glamour ties between Premier League clubs but there is one notable exception. At Anfield on Friday night, Liverpool take on their neighbours and great Merseyside rivals Everton in what is undoubtedly the highlight of the round.
It’s naturally a game that the betting community has got behind in a big way too so, if you’re looking for some value in this local derby, 888Sport have a new customer offer with a generous price boost on either team to win it.
5/1 Liverpool or 55/1 Everton
Those are the figures on offer under this promotion but how do they compare with the standard market? If you already hold an account with 888 then unfortunately you don’t qualify for the offer and can obtain odds of 2/5 on Liverpool or 13/2 with Everton.
Elsewhere, MarathonBet have best odds of 23/50 on a Liverpool victory while a win for Everton is currently at a top price of 7/1 with Paddy Power and Sun Bets. Remember, those are the prices for 90 minutes and your chosen team will need to win, without needing a replay for those enhanced odds to pay out. If you’re happy with everything, here’s what happens next.
As this is for new customers to 888Sport the first thing to do is get that new account sorted and you can cross over via the link and complete a fast and easy registration process. Within around two minutes or so, you will be confirmed as an official customer and from here it’s time to get some funds into the account.
Deposit at least £10.00 into that account via a debit or credit card and remember to input the Promo Code 888ODDS when prompted to do so. Those funds should clear straight away and then it’s time to make that important bet.
Betting and Payments
You can’t pick both teams here so make a choice between either Liverpool or Everton and stake the fixed sum of £5.00 on your chosen outcome. The game is a 19:55 kick off, televised live in the UK by the BBC and if you call correctly, and your team wins in 90 minutes without the need for a replay, payment is in two parts.
A first cash payment is made as soon as the match comes to an end and this is based on 888Sport’s standard market price at the time of kick off. The balance, up to whichever of those two price boosted figures is applicable, then arrives as free bet tokens. These tokens come back within 72 hours and you then have up to 7 days in which to use them before they expire.
Those are the main points of the deal but you can easily check the full terms and conditions before going ahead as these are listed clearly at the 888 promotions page.
Take Your Pick
If you follow the bookmakers’ lead then it would seem that Liverpool are certain winners but it’s worth remembering that an Everton revival in recent weeks includes a 1-1 draw at Anfield in the Premier League.
And, it’s often the case that Liverpool will make a number of changes to their side with commitments in the EPL and in the Champions League where the knockout stages are approaching.
It could still end with a comfortable home win but ultimately the choice is yours for an offer that promises a set of great price boosts for the Merseyside Derby on Friday night.
