Liverpool vs West Ham Predictions: EPL Matchweek 12 Odds & Best Bets

Anfield Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp's side is the big favorite to grab three points at home to the London club and should be backed to get a win

After a stuttering start to the season, Liverpool has now seemingly found an ignition spark. After recording an emphatic 7-1 win over Rangers in the Champions League, their midweek European success was soon matched in the Premier League.

With Sunday’s win over Manchester City proving to be a hugely important one, manager Jürgen Klopp will look to further progress up the table. Standing in the way of such achievement is West Ham.

The Hammers make the trip to Merseyside, having gone unbeaten in their last three league outings, a run that was extended on Sunday. After earning a point away at Southampton, it has put further daylight between themselves and the relegation zone.

  • 3-way handicap: Liverpool -230 | Draw +375 | West Ham +575

Current betting lines have sportsbooks leaning toward a Liverpool win on Wednesday. With Anfield proving to be such a fortress, the hosts being positioned as favorites will come as no real surprise.

In addition to this, West Ham’s five away fixtures have only returned six goals for the East London outfit. With this in mind, backing both teams not to score is also worth some consideration.

Liverpool vs West Ham Betting Tips

Although Sunday’s win over Manchester City left Liverpool largely breathless, there is little time for the Merseyside men to recover. With West Ham providing the opposition in midweek, their busy fixture schedule shows no signs of slowing down.

Then again, if Liverpool is to build on their recent success, they cannot afford to slow down against the Hammers. Although David Moyes’ men have not yet hit the same heights of the past couple of seasons, they are always a team that proves difficult to beat.

Going into this game, Mohamed Salah will certainly be buoyed by his winning goal just a few days ago. With the Egyptian forward also registering a recent quickfire treble over Rangers in the Champions League, he is certainly back in the goal scoring groove.

However, this West Ham team is not necessarily known for its generosity at the back either. Although it would be unfair to label the Hammers as a defensive team, they can certainly park the bus when required.

This means two opposing styles are likely to be on display at Anfield. With the hosts having not lost any of their last 28 league matches at home, they will hope their attack gets the better of the visitors’ defense on Wednesday.

Liverpool vs West Ham Prediction

Liverpool 2-0 West Ham

The fixtures come thick and fast for Liverpool, and after winning their last two, they are in a strong position to make it three in a row. With the win over Manchester City being as seismic as it was, it feels like a cloud has been lifted over the red half of Merseyside.

This means with the shackles now removed from Klopp’s men, all signs point to a rather routine victory over West Ham.

Liverpool vs West Ham Best Bets

➕Liverpool To Win To Nil (+160) at BetMGM Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Although there have been questions about Liverpool’s defense in recent weeks, Sunday provided the ideal answer. With a clean sheet now under their belts, they will now look to record a second in quick succession.

This coupled with West Ham’s lack of attacking acumen on the road means all signs point to a home win in midweek. A selection that does not offer a huge amount of value. With this in mind, I have opted for a home win to nil instead.

➕Mohamed Salah Anytime Goal Scorer (+100) at PointsBet Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Not only is Salah edging back to his goal scoring best, but he also loves finding the net against West Ham. The 30-year-old has scored in four of his last five home appearances against the east London side.

With the weight of history behind him, and more importantly, red-hot form to strengthen his case, backing him to score anytime on Wednesday comes highly recommended.
