The Reds have not been in good form at all, but they figure to get back on track this weekend when they host QPR as the clear-cut soccer odds on favorites.

Odds Overview
Along with Manchester United at home to West Brom, the Reds are the heaviest favorites on the board for this weekend's Premier League action. They're in the -250 to -275 range 

A lot of the sportsbooks have wide-ranging soccer odds on a QPR victory, with the lines starting at +700 and going all the way up to +850 at some outlets. A draw is quoted at right around +425.

 

Liverpool
There are only four matches remaining in the season for Liverpool, and right now Brendan Rodgers' boys find themselves seven points behind the top four. That's a steep mountain to climb, especially with an away match to Chelsea coming up after this encounter with QPR on Merseyside.

A recent run of poor form has all but shattered the Reds' chances of squeaking into the top four, as they've failed to win any of their latest three matches. They lost to both Aston Villa and Hull City and also drew with West Brom, with all three matches coming away from Anfield. Liverpool has only managed one goal in that span.

As you can see, it's a dark time for the Reds, but they haven't lost all hope, and we've seen some crazy things happen in the Premier League race as we near the end of the season. Daniel Sturridge won't be available, meaning Mario Balotelli could get another nod as the starting striker. However, it's going to be up to the likes of Coutinho and Raheem Sterling to spark the attack here at home this weekend.

QPR
Another season full of disappointment, with the occasional hard-fought victory mixed in, has QPR on the brink of getting relegated once more. This team is currently in 19th place in the league, four points away from safety heading into Saturday's tilt up north. QPR owns a -21 goal differential and comes in on a similar run as Liverpool, having not won in any of their last three matches.

Last weekend QPR had to settle for a point in a 0-0 draw with West Ham, as neither team was able to make the most of their chances. The result suited the Hammers just fine, but Rangers really needed the three points to help them escape the bottom three, but were unable to do so.

They now embark on a mighty difficult two-match stretch which will see them travel to take on Liverpool and then Manchester City. If QPR is to have any chance whatsoever of getting anything from these two fixtures, they're going to need incredible efforts from Charlie Austin, who leads the team with 17 league goals on teh year.

 

Premier League Pick
As poorly as the Reds have looked in recent weeks, we don't think they're going to face a lot of resistance in this showdown.

QPR has been very competitive lately and are doing everything in their power to avoid relegation, but they seemingly just don't have the talent in place to do so. There has been a lot of inconsistency to this team's play, and they've really struggled when not playing at Loftus Road, another concerning factor.

In our eyes, this appears to be a great spot for an emphatic Liverpool victory - it's been a while since the Reds have been at Anfield in front of their adorning fans, and we think they're going to be raring to go. They know their recent performances have been lackluster and will be looking to take out their frustrations on a much less talented QPR outfit. To get more bang for your buck, consider adding the Reds to your soccer picks to win by two or more.
