Liverpool vs Wolves Tips

Betting Tip: Liverpool to Win to Nil

The equation is simple for Liverpool, win here and hope Manchester City slip up at home to Aston Villa. The ‘Reds’ quadruple hopes are still alive, but only just. They’ve won the two domestic trophies and have booked their place in the Champions League (UCL) final against Real Madrid, however, the Premier League title looks likely to be headed back to Manchester.

I’m expecting a strong Liverpool performance for a number of reasons. Firstly, they’ll want to continue their good form ahead of the showdown with Real Madrid in the UCL final. Secondly, Mo Salah is in danger of losing out on the golden boot award to Son Heung-Min and will be eager to rediscover his goalscoring form. Finally, avoid defeat here and it would mean Jurgen Klopp's men have gone the entire season unbeaten at Anfield in the league.

Wolves have nothing else to play for and have been rather average of late and have failed to keep a clean sheet across their last eight matches. They also have a torrid record against the ‘Reds’, conceding in all of their previous 12 meetings. I’m not expecting Wolves to cause a shock here and I’ll have a point on the hosts claiming victory without conceding.

Betting Tip: Over 1.5 first-half goals

I like the price on this pick. I’m expecting a fast start from Liverpool and I think we could see them get the job done by halftime. They’ve scored 20 first-half goals on home soil this season and their tenacity should prove far too much for Bruno Lage’s men to handle.

The visitors have conceded the opening goal in all of their last six matches and it doesn’t take an expert to predict that is likely to happen once again here. I’d be exceptionally surprised if Wolves ventured into the Liverpool half with any kind of regularity and given the hosts have scored a colossal 46 goals on home soil this campaign, it’s likely that Jurgen Klopp’s side will storm in front and a 2-0 or 3-0 lead at the half isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.

I’ll have another point here on at least two first-half goals being scored.
