Liverpool welcome Bournemouth to Anfield on Wednesday evening, and as ever, we’re on-hand to provide you with the best bets ahead of the game.
The Reds enjoyed an excellent return to domestic action on Saturday lunchtime, with the 3-1 win over Everton both comfortable and professional in the extreme.
Having won three of their last four matches, Liverpool are returning to form after a poor start to the year, and the visit of Bournemouth offers a good chance of another victory.
It’s time to get your betting hats on and have a look the best odds available for the game – here’s our regular pre-match betting preview. My Betting Sites has all of the promotions bookmakers are running for this game.
Liverpool have been very strong at Anfield this season, losing just one of their 15 home matches and winning 11 of them.
It is, therefore, no shock to see the Reds as strong favourites to pick up a win, especially when you consider Bournemouth have won just twice on their travels in 2016/17.
Jurgen Klopp‘s side are 4/11 to make it four victories out of five, while the draw is 4/1.
The Cherries are 8/1 to win at Anfield for the first time in their history – an outcome that would represent one of the Reds’ worst results of the season.
Divock Origi has had a disappointing season, having become such a key man at this point last year.
The 21-year-old enjoyed an excellent cameo against Everton, however, and his ruthless finish in front of the Kop will hopefully have given him a huge confidence boost.
With Sadio Mane out of the game, Origi is expected to come in, and he is a very inviting 4/1 to open the scoring. Should you want to take less of a risk, backing him to net anytime (evens) is also good value.
Philippe Coutinho also found his shooting boots on Saturday, and the talismanic Brazilian is 9/2 to score first and set Liverpool on the road to victory.
His compatriot, Roberto Firmino is 7/2 in that respect, and could do with adding a few more goals to his game.
Back in December, the Reds and the Cherries played out a thrilling contest, with Eddie Howe’s side’s 4-3 win a low point in Liverpool’s campaign.
That pre-Christmas thriller suggests that this is a game that could have plenty of goals, so backing over 3.5 goals (23/20) looks a decent bet. Over 4.5 (11/4) could also be worth your while, although tiredness from the weekend could make for a slightly more cagey, low-intensity affair.
Having a punt on Both Teams to Score (8/13) also makes sense, considering neither side is famed for being rock-solid defensively.
Our forecast bet for the game is Origi to score first and Liverpool to win 3-1, at 55/1. Best of luck!
