After a long weekend of football, Monday Night Football offers traders multiple opportunities to increase their profit. It is the only fixture on the day and with this comes a variety of options on the Index.
This weeks Monday matchup is the Ranieri-less Leicester taking on Liverpool, with the rumours of player revolt at the King Power there is sure to be a huge media presence to cover the game. This seasons underperforming Foxes Riyad Mahrez (£0.95) and Jamie Vardy (£0.89) are sure to get some media attention, which in turn could lead to some price rises.
Being the only Premier League fixture it guarantees the focus of the press, with no other matches to report on this helps to raise the prospect of a buzz win for a player who makes a positive or negative impact on the game. Match winners may include Adam Lallana (£1.39), in his first game since signing a new contract and from the Foxes could Islam Slimani (£0.48) be fit and make an impact?
Being a televised fixture offers up flip opportunities aplenty. Starting spots, goals and man of the match to name a few. The recent PSG Barca champions league game showed how this could happen! Could Sadio Mane (£2.31) match his exploits from the Spurs game where he peaked above (£2.50)?
Whilst all the attention has been on Leicester in the light of the Tinker Mans dismissal, this is Liverpools first match in over two weeks. It has seen Phillipe Coutinho’s price fall from £2.75 to £2.35 on the Index as traders move there money elsewhere to players who have been in action recently. Could the little Brazilian rise up again now that Liverpool are back in action.
One thing for sure is that with the eyes of the media firmly fixed on the King Power stadium on Monday, there are several profit options available to punters.
