Betting on Liverpool in the Premier League
Eleven matches into the 2018/19 Premier League season, Liverpool are arguably better-placed with the bookmakers to take the title than they have been at this stage of a campaign for a number of years (the late surge under Brendan Rodgers in 2013/14 notwithstanding).
Still undefeated after 11 games and third in the Premier League table on 27 points (2 points behind Manchester City and below Chelsea only on goal difference), Liverpool are currently 2nd favourite to take the title with most uk bookies, (see www.playright.co.uk), behind Pep Guardiola’s City (who are currently odds-on at 4/11).
You can get a best price at the moment of 9/2 on Liverpool winning the 2018/19 Premier League with bet365 and Betway, although it is as low as 10/3 with Ladbrokes, Coral and BetBright. The bookies clearly fancy Klopp’s side as the strongest potential challengers to City, as they are priced well ahead of Chelsea at 10/1, Spurs at 50/1 and Arsenal at 66/1.
Aside from outright winner of the league, there are a number of other bets around that will interest anyone wanting to have a punt on Liverpool — depending on whether you are an optimist about how this season pans out, or you take a more pessimistic view!
For instance, there are decent odds of 9/4 at SkyBet for the current top 3 remaining as it is, and City, Liverpool and Chelsea filling these places come season’s end. If you want to add in a fourth side and have a bet on Top 4 Exact Order, you’ll currently get 12/1 on the ladder as it stands finishing this way on the last day of the season (City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs), or 6/1 if you think the Reds will pass Chelsea and finish in 2nd place (City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs).
If you have a particularly gloomy outlook on how this season will end up, then you can currently get a best price of 16/1 with PaddyPower on Liverpool finishing the season outside of the top 4 — a decent price, but small consolation!
Betting on Liverpool in the FA Cup
On the other hand, if you fancy a punt on Liverpool making a cup run, it is second favourite for the FA Cup at a current best price of 7/1 with SkyBet (although this is before the draw for the Third Round has been made).
In terms of betting on individual players, despite Mohamed Salah’s slow start to the season, you can get a best price of 6/1 with BetVictor on his finishing the campaign as the Premier League’s top goalscorer, third favourite behind Sergio Agüero and Harry Kane. Sadio Mane is currently priced at 20/1 with Unibet to top this list. If you have particularly high hopes for this season, you’ll get 20/1 at SkyBet if you want to combine Salah winning the Golden Boot with Liverpool winning the title.
You can also get 12/1 at 188Bet on Salah winning the PFA Player of the Year, 25/1 with BetVictor on Virgil van Dijk, or 33/1 on James Milner, taking out this award.
Betting on Liverpool in Europe
After a surprise 0-2 away loss to Red Star Belgrade away on Matchday 4, Liverpool has slipped to second in Group C in the Champions’ League, level with Napoli on 6 points but behind on goal difference. However, it remains odds-on to qualify out of the group stages at 4/9 with Coral, and favourite to win the group at 41/20 with Marathon Bet.
In terms of going all the way and winning the Champions’ League at the Wanda Metropolitana in Madrid on 1 June 2019, Liverpool are currently sixth in the betting at 12/1 with bet365, William Hill, Betfair and PaddyPower, behind City, Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich and PSG. You can also currently get a price of 20/1 at PaddyPower on Mo Salah being the top goalscorer in the competition.
Bet on Liverpool to win multiple trophies
If you’re feeling especially optimistic about this current campaign, you can get 7/4 at SkyBet on Liverpool winning any trophy. The price on a Premier League/FA Cup double currently stands at 33/1, or 40/1 on winning both the Premier League and the Champions’ League. If you fancy Klopp to win the treble (Premier League, FA Cup and Champions’ League), you can get a best price at the moment of 250/1.
However, if your outlook is gloomier and you think Liverpool won’t win anything, unfortunately the bookmakers agree, with odds-on prices of around 2/5 on the club ending up with no silverware at the end of this season.
