Results last weekend couldn’t have gone better for Liverpool, who capitalised on Chelsea’s defeat at Crystal Palace and the stalemate between Arsenal and Man City by hammering Tottenham 4-0 to climb to the top the table.
Bet365 reacted by slashing the Reds to 15/8 to clinch the Premier League crown and bookies are confident that Brendan Rodgers’s troops will force their title odds down yet further, Paddy Power quoting them at just 4/9 to rack up a ninth straight victory, at West Ham.
The Hammers are 15/2 via Winner.com to halt Liverpool’s momentum by coming out on top at Upton Park, where Stan James post 4/1 against the rampant Reds only managing to share the spoils but although the hosts have carded back-to-back wins, it’s hard to oppose Rodgers’s team in light of their current form.
The visitors are set to attract cash then at 8/5 (betway) to prevail ‘to nil’, they’re evens at BetVictor to lead at the end of each half and Ladbrokes price the visitors at 9/1 to net twice without reply. Most of the cash in East London however, will be on Luis Suarez at 10/3 via BetVictor to open the scoring.
Luis Suarez to score first – 10/3 (BetVictor)
