Match Betting (1x2)

Seven games played, seven games won for a Liverpool FC team who are determined to land the Premier League title this season.

The Reds amassed an impressive 97 points last term, although Jurgen Klopp’s side fell short by a single point on that occasion and will now look to keep Manchester City at arm’s length.

It was a hard-fought win over Sheffield United last weekend when Liverpool claimed a 1-0 victory at Bramall Lane and the home side might have to roll their sleeves up at Anfield this weekend.

Nevertheless, William Hill offer a best price 4/9 about a home win and Liverpool are likely to be a popular order considering they are always very strong in front of their own supporters.

Leicester will have a familiar face in the opposition dugout, with Brendan Rodgers in charge of a high-flying Foxes side who currently sit third in the table after a very bright start to the campaign.

Rodgers has previously been in charge at Liverpool and will now look to mastermind a performance which sees the visitors claim a point from the clash, with Unibet offering an eye-catching 19/5 that this one ends all square.

As for the price about the away win, you can get 13/2 with Unibet that the Midlands side announce their own title credentials by triumphing at Anfield.

The big advantage is that Leicester will have had all week to prepare for the clash, while Liverpool will have had to meet Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday and then quickly recover for this encounter.

Asian Handicap

We’re interested in this market because it often provides competitive odds and also allows us to back a team to potentially land a bigger margin of victory or alternatively avoid a bigger margin of defeat.

While backing Leicester to win might seem like a brave or even a foolish bet, the prospect of the Foxes +1.5 on the Asian Handicap might seem more appealing, with this advantage meaning that City could afford to lose by a single goal.

Unibet offer 7/10 about Leicester +1.5 and this would mean Liverpool would need to win by two goals in order for this bet to be a loser.

Alternatively, you might want to get with the Reds to enjoy a sizeable victory and they can be backed at 29/10 with a -2.5 goal handicap which means that Liverpool would need to triumph by three goals or more.

You can get 7/9 about Liverpool -1 with BetVictor and this means that you would get your money back if Klopp’s men win by a single goal and you would make a profit if they emerged victorious by at least two goals.

First Goalscorer

It was Gini Wijnaldum who found the breakthrough against the Blades and the Dutchman is generally 14/1 to score the opening goal of this game, with the midfielder often capable of firing in shots from long range.

However, it’s the usual names that head the market and Mohamed Salah is likely to be on penalties which explains why he’s trading at 7/2 with Unibet to score the opening goal of this game.

Sadio Mane has also started the season well and he’s 4/1 with the same bookmaker, while we quite like the odds about Trent Alexander-Arnold at 22/1 with Unibet considering he’s regularly standing over a free-kick.

Leicester have their own sharp shooter in the form of Jamie Vardy and the Foxes striker has been priced at 15/2 with Unibet to follow up that recent brace against Newcastle with another opening goal here.

James Maddison is likely to return from injury and the midfielder is 14/1 to break the deadlock and looking to take his chances from set pieces.

Both Teams to Score

William Hill offer 4/5 about both teams finding the net and it’s easy to see Leicester scoring at least one goal, while it’s extremely rare to see Liverpool draw a blank at Anfield.

However, the Reds do have a tight defence and it’s probable that the Foxes will set up with a fairly defensive shape, with the No option on the BTTS market available at 11/10 with Paddy Power.

Over / Under Goals

The first instinct is to look at backing Over 2.5 Goals in this clash, with both of these sides tending to favour an attack-minded approach and punters who expect this to be borne out can claim odds of 4/7 that at least three goals are scored.

If you want to push the argument further, you can get Over 3.5 Goals at odds of 31/20 with BetVictor, with Liverpool having scored four goals at home to Norwich before pilfering three-goal tallies against both Newcastle and Arsenal.

If you expect a lower-scoring affair, then Under 2.5 Goals is currently trading at 29/20 with Unibet and Under 1.5 Goals is available at 17/4 for those that think it could be really tight.

Correct Score

We like the look of Liverpool to win this game by a 3-1 scoreline at 12/1 with bet365, with the 2-1 scoreline also available to be permed together with the former and that is priced at 7/1 with Unibet.

Last season, this fixture ended in a 1-1 scoreline and bet365 go 9/1 that it happens again which would clearly please Leicester far more than the home side who are looking to stay well ahead of a Manchester City team who have already dropped five points.
