Liverpool are back at the top of the table since enjoying a brief stint over the Christmas Break. The pursuit of the title well and truly alive, the Reds hope to navigate another hurdle successfully at the expense of West Ham United in EPL week 33 betting.

Liverpool Title Hopes Surge
Following a 4-0 routing of the Spurs at Anfield Stadium last weekend, Liverpool ascended the Premier League table for the second time this season. An opportunity that was made possible by Chelsea’s shocking 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace in week 32 EPL betting, which was the unfortunate result of an own goal by John Terry – just to add insult to injury.

If Liverpool win their remaining six games they could be crowned champions. As things currently stand, Liverpool are at the top of the table with a 22-5-5 record and 71 points. Two points clear of Chelsea and four points clear of Man City, who still have two games in hand and remain sportsbook favourites to win the title at -150 futures betting odds, the Reds are tipped as the second favourites to win at +188 at Bet365, which could prove to be the savvy soccer pick if they continue on the rich vein of form they are currently enjoying.

Liverpool are undefeated in their last 13 games across the league with 11 wins and two draws. Ahead of their clash with West Ham United, they are riding an eight game winning streak, which includes three clean sheets and gauntlet throwing wins over some of the big names in Premier League: 5-1 over Arsenal, 3-0 over Man U and 4-0 over Tottenham, amongst several others.

Given the current landscape in England’s top flight it should come as no surprise that Liverpool are heavily favoured for the away win at Upton Park. Tipped at -250 soccer odds, the Reds have the match firmly cornered in their camp.

West Ham United Have Top Ten Ambitions
West Ham United will have all to do to halt the Liverpool juggernaut on Sunday and play the role of party poopers. At +600 soccer odds to win outright at Upton Park, sportsbooks would have them the quintessential long shots.

The Hammers are currently sat pretty in eleventh spot in the table with a 10-7-15 mark and 37 points. They are three points shy of tenth-placed Stoke City and three points clear of Aston Villa in 12th place.

West Ham United recently snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory over Hull City at Upton Park. A win they backed up with a 2-1 victory over hapless Sunderland on the road. That form is on a distinct upsurge is encouraging ahead of this clash. But what are the chances that they’d actually parlay it into a meaningful result at the expense of a very, very HOT Liverpool. Not very high if the soccer odds were any indication.

West Ham United vs. Liverpool Match Betting Tips and Picks
This is Liverpool’s match to win or lose. And, you could say, by extension their title to win or lose now that they hold the coveted top spot. Unquestionably, the pressure is mounting on Liverpool and expectations are running high to underscore their recent run of form and continue in that rich vein down the stretch. To put it simply, this is a must-win match.

Liverpool beat West Ham United earlier this season 4-1 at Anfield Stadium and quite frankly they should do so again at Upton Park. West Ham United have struggled against the top set this season for the most part and they are ripe for the taking. Our recommended soccer pick therefore is Liverpool to win outright at -250. As well, take the Over 2.5 at -225 and Liverpool to win both halves at -105.  Finally, Luis Suarez to score anytime at -175 is another popular soccer pick amongst soccer bettors.
