Leeds vs Liverpool Prediction and Betting Tips


LEEDS entertain Liverpool in Super Sunday's standout Premier League showdown. Tom Love (@TomLove_18) shares his betting thoughts.

Leeds vs Liverpool | Sunday 12th September 2021, 16:30 | Sky Sports

  • Liverpool have won 7 of their last 8 away matches (Premier League).
  • There have been Over 2.5 Goals in Liverpool's last 4 away games (Premier League).
  • There have beenOver 2.5 Goals in Leeds's last 3 home games (Premier League).

The one Premier League game on Sunday comes from West Yorkshire as Leeds host Liverpool in what should be an entertaining encounter. 

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are famed for their front foot approach, but they’ve had a slightly underwhelming start to the campaign and are yet to win. Their task isn’t any easier as a strong Liverpool side come to town. 

Leeds’ record against the big guns leaves a fair bit to be desired, especially from a defensive standpoint. They don’t change approach no matter who the opponent is and it means they can get caught out against the elite sides. 

These two met on the first day of last season, a game which ended 4-3 in a fantastic watch, although I don’t expect that many goals there still should be opportunities for both sides given the way they play. 

Ultimately though the added quality in forward areas could see the visitors edge out a fun affair. Liverpool to win and both teams to score therefore appeals at 2/1 (Bet365).

There’s a standout prop play I’m keen on too. Joel Matip is chalked up at 5/6 (SkyBet) to have a shot in the game and that looks too good to turn down. The rangy centre half has had 1, 3 and 3 shots this season and anyone who has watched Leeds will know how vulnerable they look from set pieces.

I can’t ignore the 4/1 about him to have 2 or more shots, nor the 14/1 for 3 or more with the same form given his strong record so far. Most eyes will be on Virgil Van Dijk but the value is certainly with his partner.

Both Burnley centre halves registered a shot a fortnight ago, as have Harry Maguire and Michael Keane this season.

I was first interested in the betting industry by doing the odd coupon at 18 - when I’d see a team at odds I didn’t expect it sparked my curiosity as to why that was. I’d go and research everything around that club: form, team news, manager quotes, and try give my own price in an aim to out-do the bookies. I personally enjoy punting on the Football League and European competitions. I like to diversify what markets I bet on so sometimes it’s outrights, goals, player cards etc. The Football League angle comes from being an avid Bradford City fan which has its ups (reaching a League Cup final and beating Chelsea in the FA Cup) and its downs (The entirety of 2018). Hobbies of mine include playing football, cross country running, travelling and playing Football Manager.
