Betting on Leicester City (+295)
Leicester City have not had the greatest start to the season. They have won just one of their first five games, and have gone winless in each of their last three games. After losses to Manchester United and Chelsea, they were held to a 1-1 draw to Huddersfield.
However, the Foxes did pick up a morale-boosting 2-0 win over Liverpool in the Carabao Cup. Record signing Islam Slimani finally opened his account for the season.
Jamie Vardy was rested for that midweek matchup as he recovers from a muscle injury, but should be fit to face Liverpool. Vardy has been in fine goalscoring form to start the year. He has scored four of Leicester’s seven league goals.
Vardy has been an absolute thorn in Liverpool’s side over the last couple years. He has scored in each of his last three games against Liverpool, including braces in their last two home games, which turned into Leicester wins.
Betting on Liverpool (-124)
Liverpool’s horrific run has now reached four games in all competitions without a win after their 2-0 defeat to Leicester in the Carabao Cup.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp fielded a significantly altered team against Leicester. But while they dominated play to the tune of 70 percent possession and 21 shots, that team continued to play the same poor defense the Reds have shown thus far. The two goals Liverpool conceded came off a corner and a throw-in.
The Reds will still be without Sadio Mane, who continues to serve out last game of his three-game suspension after his red card against Manchester City. Meanwhile, Dejan Lovren is still dealing with a back injury, which could see the shaky Ragnar Klavan continue to deputize at the center of Liverpool’s defense.
Even without Mane, though, Liverpool still has enough firepower to trouble Leicester with Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and Philippe Coutinho. After a bad run of games, the Reds should come out with a greater sense of urgency to end it against Leicester.
Liverpool (-124) finally snap their slump as they pick up a 2-1 away win over Leicester.
