High time to back 6/4 Liverpool half-time/full time at West Brom
When Liverpool score first rarely do they let their opposition in with a sniff of a comeback.
Not only have they not lost a game when breaking the deadlock first, Brendan Rodgers’ men have yielded full reward for Liverpool/Liverpool backers in the half-time/full-time markets in 13 of their 23 Premier League games this season.
A trip to the Hawthorns to visit a West Brom side that are low on confidence under their new coach Pepe Mel won’t hold many fears for the rampant Reds and the very generous 6/4 for the away side to be winning at half-time and full-time should be snapped up by value hunters.
For those looking to keep things simple and back Liverpool in the outright markets, you can get 4/6 on the away win whilst the Baggies, who have won just one of their last 14 games in all competitions, are 4/1 to cause an upset and the draw available at 3/1.
Liverpool, with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge in devilish mood, have scored 37 first-half goals this season, 10 more than West Brom have in total (27) in the Premier League this season.
Chances for the likes of Suarez and Sturridge should be pretty easy to come by as the Baggies have kept just one clean sheet in their last 14 matches in all competitions.
The way in which the Reds tore through fierce rivals Everton last week in a 4-0 victory echoed the notion that they are a team to follow with hard earned cash at the moment and their record against bottom half teams only further enhances that argument.
Lesser opposition have been relished by Liverpool’s classy front men, winning 10 of their 12 games when faced with a team in the bottom echelons of the league.
Meanwhile, the rapidly regressing Baggies have failed to beat a top-six side at home in the last 13 months and will be reeling having conceding four goals against lowly Villa in midweek.
The 6/4 for Liverpool to be winning when the oranges are served up and at the full-time whistle is dripping with potential.
