The Reds are in fantastic form right now and now get to take on Burnley at home in Premier League action. What are the soccer odds saying about this match?

Odds Overview
One of the heaviest favorites on the board, along with Manchester City (at home to Leicester), the Reds will be loving their chances of securing another win and hugely important three points at Anfield. They're listed at right around -275 to win straight up, with some sportsbooks even offering up a line of -300.

If you really think Burnley has a good shot of competing here and could possible even escape with the victory, you can back them in the +800 to +850 range. A draw is quoted at +450 to +500.

 

Liverpool
Though they were knocked out of the Europa League in disappointing fashion, the Reds have been one of the best teams in the Premier League in recent weeks. They've gone unbeaten in 11 straight league matches and will enter this encounter with Burnley fresh off one of their most impressive triumphs over the season.

The soccer odds were very close between Liverpool and Manchester City over the weekend, with the Reds having the advantage of being at home at Anfield. They put forth one of their most impressive displays of the season and earned a 2-1 win thanks to wonderful goals from both Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho. It's a win that could end up having huge implications on the top four race, as Liverpool is now just a couple points back of third place Manchester United.

There's also a chance captain Steven Gerrard could return against the Clarets after missing a few weeks with a hamstring issue. However, it's clear the Reds can cope without their skipper and one could argue they're even better without him on the field. Whatever the case, Liverpool is feeling good at the moment and will be looking to keep that momentum going.

 

Burnley
Make that seven straight matches in which Burnley hasn't picked up a single victory. That includes a six-match winless run in the Premier League and a 4-2 loss to Tottenham in the FA Cup. 

Because of their poor recent play, the Clarets are in danger zone when it comes to relegation talk. They're tired with Leicester City for last place (20th), having earned just 22 points through 27 matches. They also have played one more match than both Leicester and QPR (just ahead in the table), so things aren't looking too good for Burnley. Getting even a point out of his trip to Anfield could end up being the difference between getting relegated and staying up next season.

Despite their troubles, there's one man that has shown he belongs in the top flight, and that's Danny Ings. He's actually gotten interest from this very Liverpool team, as well as a couple other bigger names in the Premier League, so Ings, who's scored nine league goals, looks like he'll be staying up in the top flight regardless. There's no way he'll be plying his trade in the Championship in 2015/16.

Premier League Pick
We anticipate seeing quite a few goals in this one, but ultimately we like Liverpool to win.

The results simply haven't been there for Burnley, regardless of how competitive they've been each time out on the pitch. Meanwhile, Liverpool has been on a roll and therefore the mood around Merseyside should be positive. Another great result today would keep the pressure on the top four, so Brendan Rodgers will have his men focused on the task at hand.

In order to get more value from your soccer picks, you may want to add the Reds to win by at least two goals, which would offer a much better return than an outright wager. Enjoy the match!
