Free Soccer Pick: Liverpool win to nil
Best Odds Offered By Bet365

 

Liverpool yet again let favorite backers down last week when they were odds-on for their away trip to Newcastle and the question we have to answer this week is can they be trusted again at short-prices at home to West Brom?
I'm prepared to give them a second chance, although I do believe that there is very little value in the 1.40 which is generally available with most of the bookies for them to get maximum points.

Last week's 2-0 defeat at St James Park was only their second defeat in the last 19 matches in all competitions and the concern for takers of the short-price is that they've drawn 10 of those games.

I certainly wouldn't be suggesting a serious wager on them as a single for this match as they've already failed to beat West Ham, Norwich and Crystal Palace this season, when a short-price home favorite, but I believe they will finally break the visitors down as they have enough quality come away with valuable three points and they will be in my weekend accumulator.

Jurgen Klopp's side safely made it through to the knock-out stages of the Europa League in midweek with a dire 0-0 draw in Switzerland against Sion and they may well struggle for goals again at the weekend.

England international Daniel Sturridge is injured AGAIN and the replacements Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi just aren't delivering the goals in the Premier League.

The Reds' have only scored more than one goal twice in their 12 home matches this campaign and against a very well organised West Brom side, they aren't expected to score many this weekend.

Seven of West Brom's eight away matches have featured less than 2.5 goals and I do like the under's again at 1.85 with BoyleSports.
Tony Pullis will park the WBA bus in front of the Kop in this one and try to frustrate his more illustrious opponents and they will offer very little, if anything, as an attacking force and the game-plan will try to sneak a 0-0 draw.

I just believe that the hosts have to much quality amongst their ranks and the return of Brazilian playmaker and Liverpool's main man Philippe Coutinho could be the difference to unlock the visitors defense and my best soccer pick in this one is a Liverpool win to nil which is in the soccer odds board at 2.10 with Skybet and is a much more attractive way to get with Klopp's boys than take the 1.40 on them just to win.
