Liverpool v West Brom Betting Preview – Premier League 22nd October
The Reds have put together a six match unbeaten streak in the top flight and they will be looking to pick themselves up after a disappointing display in a 0-0 home draw against Manchester United last weekend. Liverpool really never got themselves into any kind of rhythm, but they will be hoping to bounce back from that and get back to their powerful attacking ways as they play host to West Brom on the weekend. The Baggies though won’t be easy to beat and they have lost just one of their last six in the top flight, but four of those six have been drawn by them, including their last three on the bounce.

Liverpool v West Brom Betting Tips
Liverpool have posted a very good W5 D2 L1 record for the season and at Anfield they have gone W2 D1 this season in the Premier League. They were frustrated by a defensively sound Manchester United effort at Anfield in their 0-0 draw last weekend and it’s a rare thing to see Liverpool kept off the scoresheet. Liverpool are second only to Man City and Arsenal for goals in the top flight this season and their patience may get tested against the Baggies as well. Liverpool are running on a six match unbeaten streak of form against West Brom in the top flight, but four of those six games have ended in a draw, which is something that the Baggies do a lot of. But Liverpool have scored nine goals in three home games this season.
Daniel Sturridge has netted in both of his previous Premier League games against West Brom for Liverpool, and he goes as a 10/11 shot in the anytime goalscorer market. He hasn’t exactly been on fire this season and there is value at around the 21/20 mark on the likes of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho. Liverpool have only failed to score in two of their 18 Premier League home games under Jurgen Klopp (both times against Manchester United). The Reds are on an eleven game unbeaten streak at home in the league (W6 D5), their best run of form at Anfield since April 2014. No team has earned more points from losing positions than Liverpool have this season too. This one to go under 2.5 goals is a price of 5/4, as the Baggies are resilient, and a Liverpool 1-0 correct score is a 13/2 poke, while backing them to win to nil will fetch a price of 20/21.
West Brom have lost just one of their last six then in a W1 D4 L1 record in the top flight. Their last three games have all ended 1-1 which is a price of 12/1 in the correct score market. The Baggies have won W1 D2 L1 away from home this season, their last two on the road being 1-1 draws at Stoke and Sunderland. West Brom’s Premier League wins at Anfield came in April 2012 and February 2013, drawing once and losing seven otherwise. But four of their last six against them have been drawn, and it’s hard to see them taking anything more than a point away from this one. West Brom have only managed the two away wins in 2016 in a W2 D7 L5 record in the calendar year.
That having been said, as a Premier League Manager, Tony Pulis is unbeaten in his last eight against Liverpool (W2 D6). So again, that drawn outcome is appearing pretty often here. Nacer Chadli has been a revelation for the Baggies this season and he is a 5/1 shot in the daytime goalscorer market with Salomon Rondon at 10/3. West Brom don’t carry a lot of attacking threat. The Baggies have scored just three goals in four away games this season in the top flight and have taken just the one clean sheet. West Brom do have the ability to frustrate sides and they have scored in each of their last four visits to West Brom. But they are contours and if Liverpool are on their game, they are likely to get exploited.
Liverpool v West Brom Betting Odds
Liverpool 1/4, Draw 5/1, West Brom 9/1
Liverpool v West Brom Predictions
Look for Liverpool to land the win in this one. As hard as West Brom are to beat, standing up to the attack of Liverpool is likely to be too big of an ask for them. Liverpool fell short against Manchester United, but can bounce back for three points in this one. West Brom just aren’t likely to carry enough of an attacking threat to see Liverpool thrown off their game. Home win but it may be worth looking at just a Liverpool one goal winning margin.
