I like to have the occasional flutter on the Reds, and today I checked the odds for the Fulham game this weekend. I was shocked to find they have us listed odds on to win (Head over to http://bwinbetting.com to check out the latest football odds).

I love the club and I go into near enough every game optimistic that we can win, but let's be honest here. We're talking about a team that were just beaten convincingly at home by a team lower in the table than Fulham. I could never bet against Liverpool myself but for the neutral 5/1 on a Fulham win does not look bad at all.

This isn't a one-off either. This last couple of seasons we have been in our worst form since the Souness years, but our odds seem to have hardly changed at all. We are still seeing the same sort of odds being given on us to win the league as we were a few years ago when we were actually finishing in the top four, and we're consistently listed as favourites to win games that in all honesty these days we are just as likely to draw or lose.

It's annoying as I like to just place a bet on the result, but these days I feel obliged to predict the scoreline or first scorer to get odds that are half-decent. After seeing the odds for the Fulham game I won't be having a flutter at all.

Anyone got any ideas why the bookies still have so much faith in us? Surely it must be costing them money to offer such good odds for our opponents when we keep losing?

Because no matter how bad we are playing, if we turn up then we should be well able to beat those teams. In fact, this season we are beating these mid table teams easier.

I'm worse for wear but I'm wearing it well.

No but Norwich, Reading, QPR, Fulham, West Ham, Southampton, Wigan, West Brom in the Cup.

There all mid table, potential mid table or lower.

Odds are based upon what people are likely to bet on. It's not necessarily a reflection of actual probability.
All around the fields, of Anfield road,
Where once we watched the King Kenny play and could he play!
Stevie Heighway on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing,
Of the Glory round the fields of Anfield Road.

Liverpool has a lot of fans. That means a lot of bets. If Liverpool do get the win, then longer odds means a greater payout for the company
