Liverpool, or The Reds, are one of the most famous soccer clubs in the world thanks in part to the huge success the club enjoyed in the 1970s and 1980s. The side who play their home games at Anfield have won the First Division title 18 times, although not since the 1989/90 season, much to the annoyance of their supporters, and to the joy of fierce rivals Manchester United. In addition to those 18 titles, Liverpool has eon the FA Cup seven times, the league cup on eight occasions, the UEFA Super Cup thrice, UEFA Cup/Europa League three times, and the European Cup/Champions League five times.
Some of the game’s most famous stars have played for Liverpool over the years including Kenny Dalglish, Graeme Souness, Alan Handen, John Barnes, Ian Rush, and Steven Gerrard, but those days are long gone.
The 2015/16 season was disappointing for Liverpool as they finished eighth in the Premier League and missed out on qualification for Europe.
Part of the reason for this was the departure of talismanic midfielder and captain Steven Gerrard to LA Galaxy, and the fact manager Jurgen Klopp took over as manager from Brendan Rodgers in October with Liverpool already way behind the pace of their rivals.
This season has Liverpool fans full of hope. Not only has Klopp got a full season to work with his players, he has also made a few signings to help strengthen his squad.
Whether or not they can live up to their +850 joint sixth favorite tag remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, the Liverpool fans will back their team in each and every game because as they sing there, “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

Liverpool Online Betting Tips
While I do not think Liverpool can win the league, their +850 odds are enticing and I would not blame anyone from taking advantage of those.
Liverpool have a very tough start to the season so expect those odds to lengthen if they do not pick up points early on.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has let defenders Kolo Toure and Martin Skrtel leave the club, which will not help their defense that was ranked eighth last season after conceding 50 goals and only kept 11 clean sheets.
An exciting signing for Liverpool is the £34 million rated Sadio Mane from Southampton. The Senegalese winger is bursting with pace and knows where the goal is too.
With Mane providing service to the likes of Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, and Danny Ings, Liverpool could easily score more than the 63 goals they did last term, which was the sixth best in the Premier League.
I do not see much value in betting on Liverpool to finish in the top six because preseason odds are a short -357 with a top four finish priced at +137.
I believe the top four will be both Manchester clubs, Arsenal, and one from Chelsea or Tottenham, so I will be staying away from the top four market.
A potential money making bet would be on Daniel Sturridge to finish as the league’s top scorer at +1600. Sturridge is a phenomenal talent who is going to see plenty of service this season, but there are question marks against his fitness.
Sturridge only played 14 league games last season, scoring eight goals, and 12 games the season before that. If, and it is a big if, he can stay fit, he could challenge for the golden boot.
