They're certain to be tested by a talented Southampton team, but soccer odds boards show Liverpool to be the one who will celebrate the win. Check inside for our prediction on a soccer pick that is worth your money.

Odds Overview
The Reds are hovering around even money (-100 to -105) to pick up all three points this coming weekend. They'll do battle with Southampton, who can be found in the +250 to +300 range to win on the English Premier League soccer odds board. If you think a draw's the most likely outcome on Merseyside, that option is available to you at +225 to +250 depending on your sportsbook.

Having gone unbeaten over their last seven matches across all competitions, the Reds haven't been terrible, but they've still got a lot of ground to make up domestically. That makes this Sunday's match at Anfield all the more important.

Jurgen Klopp has led the team to two draws in his first two fixtures in charge, and will be hoping to finally add a win to his Liverpool resume. There are injury questions about the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Christian Benteke and Robert Firmino, so be sure to keep tracking the news to see who'll play and who won't.


Let's not just assume the Saints are going to lay down and die this Sunday. Quite the opposite, as Southampton have the talent level to really cause the Reds problems.

The Saints will try to move up from eighth in the EPL table, and their form suggests they could pull it off; coming in they've gone unbeaten over their last four matches, with three wins (over Milton Keynes Dons, Swansea and Chelsea) and one draw. 

Premier League Pick
We know Liverpool is going to be up for this match, as they hope to win their first match with Klopp in charge. The fans have had to settle for draws in each of their team's last two fixtures, but the odds are in the Reds' favor here on Sunday.

And, after careful consideration, we've decided to put our faith in Klopp's men to fight and claw their way to all three points. Sturridge was rested in the Europa League tie, but there's a good chance he'll return to the fold this weekend, which would be a massive boost to the home team.
