The 2016/17 season is beginning to take shape, both in the Premier League and cup competitions, and Liverpool find themselves right in the mix.

This is a great time to be a Reds supporter, and with Jurgen Klopp at the helm, it feels as though anything could be possible this season, and in the future.

Liverpool find themselves second in the Premier League table with 12 matches played – a position many supporters would have been delighted to be in back in August.

As the campaign heads towards the festive schedule and its midway point, all the major competitions are still very much up for grabs.

Here’s a look at the latest 2016/17 odds affecting Liverpool according to Sports Betting Dime.

Title Hopes Alive

The bookies certainly see the Premier League title race as tough to call, with very little in it, as things stand.

Klopp’s men are 3/1 to seal their first league crown since 1990, with only Man City and Chelsea (both 9/4) ahead of them in the betting.

North London rivals Arsenal (7/1) and Tottenham (16/1) are not to be discounted, while Man United (25/1) going on a run at some point is also far from impossible.

Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Southampton may have thrown a small bit of doubt into the minds of some, but it would be a huge surprise if Liverpool weren’t in contention come the spring.

In terms of the battle for a top-four finish – the Reds’ main aim at the start of the season – things are looking very bright indeed.

Liverpool are 1/5 to be playing Champions League football next season – something they have only ach ieved once since 2009/10.

Cup Competitions

Although Premier League commitment clearly takes precedence, it would be a huge monkey off Liverpool’s back if they could win a cup this season.

They host Leeds United in a League Cup quarter-final showdown on November 30th, and the bookies see them as 2/1 favourites to go on and lift the trophy.

Arsenal (11/4) and Man United (3/1) are also both left in the competition, though, so it will not be easy for the Reds to end five years without silverware.

The big boys are yet to start their FA Cup campaigns, but Klopp’s side are the rather surprising fifth-favourites (9/1) to clinch glory at Wembley next May.

Golden Boot

Liverpool have shared the goals between them so far this season, meaning it is unlikely any of their players will be challenging for the Premier League Golden Boot award.

Sergio Aguero (13/8) and Diego Costa (7/4) look the obvious duo to tussle for the honour, but if you’re feeling brave, you could have a punt on one of the Reds’ attacking players.

Roberto Firmino (33/1) leads the line and is, therefore, most likely to pull clear of his teammates, but Sadio Mane (33/1) and Philippe Coutinho (50/1) have been equally ruthless in front of goal in 2016/17.

Daniel Sturridge is really struggling for playing time, but if you believe he may go on a stunning burst of form at some point, he is 100/1 to be top scorer. That feels like reckless betting, however.
