Since the start of November, they have conceded more than two goals just once – a 3-1 loss to Arsenal on November 11. Except for that game and the win against Sheffield United, only one of their matches has featured over 3.5 goals since the September international break – a 4-1 loss to Chelsea on October 7.

Moneyline Pick: Liverpool (-260)

Liverpool thrashed West Ham 5-1 midweek to advance to the EFL Cup semifinals, their third win this season against a claret side, having previously beaten West Ham 3-1 and Aston Villa 3-0. We’re backing them to make it four in a row in our soccer betting picks as they take on Burnley, who have grown accustomed to humiliating defeats at Turf Moor since earning promotion. Burnley are conceding two goals a game, whilst Liverpool are scoring just over two goals a game – all signs point to a win for the Reds.

Player Prop Pick: Mohamed Salah to Score or Assist (-201)

At 31 years of age, Mohamed Salah continues to show why he is one of the best players in world football. He has scored or assisted in seven of Liverpool’s last nine matches in all competitions, opening the scoring against Arsenal at the weekend and entering the top 10 Premier League goal scorers of all time with 151 goals. The Egyptian forward has 19 goal contributions so far, the most in the Premier League, and he’s a surefire addition to your player prop picks.
