Liverpool fans will be licking their lips at the thought of facing West Brom and it is hard to envisage anything other than an easy home win.
The Reds have scored 20 goals in seven straight Premier League victories at Anfield this term and are coming off a 7-0 romp at Crystal Palace last time out.
Second-from-bottom Albion will struggle to keep Jurgen Klopp’s table toppers at bay, so 19/20 for a home win and over 3.5 goals is our first Liverpool vs West Brom prediction.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool left it late when edging out Tottenham 2-1 in their most recent match at this venue but were fast out of the blocks when visiting Palace.
Takumi Minamino coolly found the bottom corner of the net in the third minute after being set up by Sadio Mane, who then doubled the advantage.
Roberto Firmino bagged a brace either side of Jordan Henderson’s curled effort and Mohamed Salah came off the bench to hit a late double.
“We are just happy we won the game and now we have more time to recover than we ever had before in this season,” commented Klopp.
“We have to use that in a smart way and then West Brom is waiting with Sam Allaryce and the next proper challenge is there.”
The Reds should be raring to go here and are fancied to hit the ground running again.
Looking at the Liverpool vs West Brom odds, let’s take 19/10 for them to be leading after 15 minutes.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Robertson, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Keita, Henderson, Firmino, Mane, Minamino.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
Allardyce kicked off his West Brom reign with a reality check regarding how tough it will be to get them out of trouble.
The Baggies suffered a ninth defeat in 14 top-flight fixtures when beaten 3-0 by Aston Villa at The Hawthorns.
Jake Livermore’s red card on 37 minutes didn’t help and Albion only conceded two of the goals in the closing stages.
However, the harsh truth is that Villa were dominant throughout after storming ahead via Anwar El Ghazi’s fifth-minute opener.
“We need to know how to fight and have a fighting spirit to get out of this position,” said Allardyce.
“We are a team that are going to have to battle our way out. We may need a more battling approach playing a particular style of football to get the points we need.”
Allardyce may see this as a damage limitation exercise before more pivotal home matches versus Leeds and Arsenal.
Let’s finish off our Liverpool vs West Brom betting tips by taking 7/2 for the Reds to prevail 4-0, 5-0 or 6-0.
Last West Brom line-up: Johnstone, Furlong, Gibbs, Ajayi, O’Shea, Livermore, Phillips, Diangana, Gallagher, Sawyers, Grant.
