The Line: Liverpool -400 / Draw +400 / Brighton +1400 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Liverpool have had an incredible start to the season as they have won both their opening games with ease and comfort. This weekend they will look to continue their perfect record as they host Brighton at Anfield. It has been amazing to watch the Reds this season and I am expecting this exciting brand of football to continue in this match.
The away side, Brighton, had a massive win last weekend as they managed to topple Manchester United. The Albion looked very strong in that victory and they will hope that they can continue that form in this match. At home, Brighton has always been a very strong team and that was a big reason why they avoid relegation last season. Their away has been bad and that was displayed in the opening round loss against Watford. The Albion will hope to turn around their away form but it will be very difficult since they are playing a very strong side in Liverpool.
As far as Liverpool are concerned, they will know that they must win these games so they can keep up with Manchester City. This is a big season for the home side as they will hope to compete for the Premier League title. The Reds spent very big over the summer transfer window and this team is now one of the best in Europe. The pressure will be on Liverpool to maintain their winning ways and that will ensure this game is a priority for them to win.
I think that Liverpool will win this match. They are the better side and I think they will be way too strong for their opponents. We are getting a poor price wagering on Liverpool to win but I think we can avoid that bet and still find value in this match. The best bet is the over 2.5 goals which I think should win easily with Liverpool scoring 3 or more goals themselves.
