Liverpool v Wolves tips – Wanderers could be sticky opponents

Liverpool are out to 2/1 to win the 2020/21 Premier League title after a 1-1 draw at Brighton, a result which means the Reds have dropped nine points this season although they still sit joint-top of the table.

Not for the first time this campaign, Jurgen Klopp was left dismayed by the part played by VAR at the AMEX Stadium, although it was still a game where Brighton created lots of good scoring chances and missed a penalty before scoring a second spot kick to claim a valuable point.

Liverpool Strong Favourites to Beat Wolves

The bookies never take too much of a chance with their quotes about Liverpool winning at Anfield and that’s especially the case after offering odds-against that they beat Leicester a fortnight ago before the Reds made a mockery of that price and ran out facile 3-0 winners.

For Saturday’s game, you can get no bigger than 1/2 about the Merseyside club continuing their 100% record at home, although it’s clear that Klopp is currently stretching his squad to the limit and they just aren’t the same force when key players like Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson are absent.

Given the Reds’ Champions League participation, it’s far from certain that they will be at full-strength for this clash and this is exactly the sort of fixture that could cause problems, especially as Wolves are left free to concentrate on domestic matters this season.

Can Wolves Follow Up Win at Arsenal With Three Points?

Wolverhampton Wanderers are sitting sixth in the Premier League table after earning seventeen points from ten games played and it’s been a solid start for the Midlands side who have largely kept to a defensive game plan, although they were able to exploit Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium to record a 2-1 win last weekend.

The visitors are available at 13/2 to claim three points at Anfield and really open up the title race, with Nuno Espirito Santo having to contend without Raul Jimenez who fractured his skull at the Emirates Stadium, although it was noticeable that Adama Traore produced a bright entertaining performance against the Gunners.

Fabio Silva might get his chance to shine in the Mexican’s absence, while Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence both found themselves on the scoresheet and Liverpool will be wary of the visitors on the counter-attack for this game, with Wolves having given the Reds several scares since getting promoted.

What Are the Best Bets for Liverpool v Wolves?

We are not confident betting on Liverpool at short odds despite their recent win over Leicester City. They were carved open away to Brighton on several occasions and we’re expecting the champions to have a few difficulties against a Wolves side who boast plenty of pace and trickery going forward.

This might be a good time to get with Wanderers on the Asian Handicap betting market and Unibet are among those bookies offering 13/20 about the visitors with a +1.5 goal start. That means you could still potentially make a profit if Wolves lose by a single goal and that outcome appears highly likely.

Liverpool don’t have a huge amount of recovery time to play this match following a Tuesday night crunch clash against Ajax and it will be interesting to see whether fatigue plays a part, with Wolves having only lost two games on the road and they’ve won the other three.

We’re certainly happy to consider the draw price at 7/2 and think that there’s a chance that the visitors could either land a goalless draw or a 1-1 scoreline against a side who are missing key defensive players right now.

However, the bookies seem to think that it’s likelier that both teams will score and the best odds about the “Yes” option is 19/20, with the visitors happy to look at soaking up pressure before hitting their opponents on the break.
