  • Liverpool are blazing through the Premier League this season, already with a staggering 55 points in just 19 matches played
  • Their only two dropped points of the season came in a draw against Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford
  • Currently, the oddsmakers have Liverpool favored to lose outside of the month of January with a moneyline of +150

Liverpool looks like the team to beat in the Premier League this season, as defending back-to-back champions Manchester City continue to struggle 14 points away from the top with a game in hand to Liverpool. With that being said, the season is extremely long, and the month of January is another busy one for Jurgen Klopp and his troops.

New Year, New Reds?

The competition is steady, facing tough opponents such as Spurs, Man United, Sheffield and Wolves, who all can be good on their day. Nonetheless, the Merseysiders have been facing tough competition all year round and have made it work despite scheduling issues, injuries and fatigue.

They have had to play without the likes of Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren for quite some time now and they are dealing with it magnificently. When they slowly start to get these players back into form and are put alongside players who were forced to step up in their absence like Joe Gomez and Naby Keita, Liverpool’s depth will truly be scary.

Looking specifically into January, West Ham is really the only push over game per se that is on the fixture list. Sheffield and Man United are both being played at Anfield, and the last time Liverpool lost in the league at home was April 23rd. Of 2017 I might add.

One could say that Tottenham away from home might be a challenge, especially with it being the first time Liverpool has traveled to their new stadium, but currently, they are in shambles. If you were to pick a team in January to beat Liverpool it would have to be Wolves away from home as we saw them probably lose out on a point to Liverpool this weekend. However, my personal pick is for Liverpool to remain unbeaten; the value in the bet is there, and I genuinely do not see another team managing to score more goals than the Reds in 90 minutes.

Under 98 ½ Points -150
Over 98 ½ Points +120

Will Liverpool Reach Centurion Mark?

Currently, Liverpool is favored to score nearly less points than they managed last season, which was of course 97. If they did drop to the under of 98 points, that means they would have to drop 14 points for what they are on pace for. Liverpool has dropped two points in 19 games, but oddsmakers think they will drop 14 in the second half? That makes no sense whatsoever, and it’s a lock that you should take Liverpool going over 98.5 points this season.

The Invincibles 2.0?

Much like Arsene Wenger’s team of 2003, Liverpool could call themselves “The Invincibles” if they manage to not lose a game. Not even Manchester City have managed to do so, which would make it even more of a significant benchmark. As I said previously, I fully believe that Liverpool will not lose a game this season in the Premier League. Surely, it can happen in the Champions League or the FA Cup, but not the league.

There is the corny phrase, “Playing like champions”, but Liverpool are actually doing so, week in, week out. They are grinding out victories, and whether it is an open game, or a close 1-0 shootout, they are laser-focused for the tasks ahead of them. They have taken each game one by one and dealt with it as if there is not a towering wall of pressure building over them. Liverpool fans have waited 30 years for this, do not expect anyone to slip up this time.
