Liverpool (-450) vs Crystal Palace (+1,200, Draw +550)

QUICK HITTER

Jurgen Klopp's squad came out flat against Everton, but were hurt by the absence of two key players. Both Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson were declared to be fit ahead of Sunday's match but Salah ended up staying glued to the bench while Robertson didn't make the 20-man squad. However, Klopp confirmed that the two trained as normal on Monday, so that should be a boost to the Reds early offense.

Since the start of the 2019-20 EPL season, Liverpool has scored in the first half in 18 of 22 matches at Anfield across all competitions. Back another strong start at home out of Liverpool and take them to go into halftime with a lead.

Pick: Half Time Result - Liverpool (-150)

 

 

Team/Player Prop

Crystal Palace has allowed just 32 goals in 30 matches this season, and they have goalkeeper Vicente Guaita to thank for that. The Spaniard hasn't had much help in front of him, with the Eagles allowing 13.8 shots per game, 15th in the EPL. 

Salah excels at creating scoring opportunities, leading the Premier League with 44 shots on goal, five more than second-place Raúl Jiménez — while playing in four fewer contests. Take the Over 1.5 on Salah's shots on goal.

Pick: Player Shots on Target - Mohamed Salah Over 1.5 (-125)

 

Over/Under Bet

Liverpool keeper Alisson might be the best in the business, and combined with a well-organized defense has been a big reason for Liverpool's dominance this season. The Reds have conceded only 21 goals across 30 matches while posting 13 clean sheets. 

Crystal Palace is having an impressive season, but it's in no part due to their anemic offense, which has scored just 28 goals this campaign. We're taking the Under 2.5 goals here.

Pick: Under 2.5 (+110)

 

Side Bet

As well as Crystal Palace have played this season, Liverpool has been the cream of the EPL crop, especially at home. The Reds have 15 wins in 15 matches at Anfield with a goal differential of plus-28, giving them 22 consecutive wins at home in top-flight competition. 

The Eagles have also lost six straight matches, across all competitions, against Liverpool. Back the Reds to rebound from their draw versus Everton and take them on the half-time/full-time wager.

Pick: Half Time/Full Time - Liverpool/Liverpool (-138)
