This is a battle of first versus third. As a result, it is Liverpool’s toughest test this season. Leicester have shown that they deserve to be sitting in third position and have the capability of hurting Liverpool.
The Liverpool defense looks a lot more vulnerable than last season. Jamie Vardy and James Maddison look very sharp this term. As a result, Both Teams to Score seems likely. Even at a short -130, it looks a solid bet given that Liverpool conceded three at Anfield in the Champions League Midweek.
Leicester +1 at +175 may be the smartest bet if you think Liverpool’s winning streak will come to an end.
Mane first goalscorer is +350 if you fancy the reds to get off to a quick start but Vardy first goalscorer at +600 plays into the narrative of a frustrated Liverpool being caught on the break.
