Soccer Odds: Liverpool Get Ready for Leicester and Beyond. Liverpool F.C. have seen their fortunes rise and fall in the English Premier League, but everything looks rosy heading into Saturday’s match with Leicester City.
The Reds (10W, 8D, 2L) are fourth on the EPL table at press time, and they’re –350 home favorites to beat eighth-place Leicester, with the Foxes (7W, 6D, 7L) at +850 at Bovada and the draw in regulation at +475.
Supporters at Anfield have been spoiled by the high-flying LFC offense, second in the Premiership with 46 goals after 20 matches. Now the Reds are looking to shore up their back end and secure their spot in the Top 4; Liverpool have signed CB Virgil van Dijk away from Southampton, although van Dijk won’t officially join the squad until the transfer window opens on New Year’s Day.
Leicester haven’t been nearly as productive as the side that came from nowhere to win the Premier League two years ago. But they’ve stabilized their place in the Premiership after finishing 12th last year, and they’ve still got striker Jamie Vardy, who’s tied for ninth in the league with eight goals. Saturday’s total of 3.5 goals (UNDER –130) is the biggest on the betting board for this weekend’s matches.
