Liverpool vs. Fulham prediction: Premier League odds, picks, best bets for Sunday

There’s no more room for error for Liverpool Football Club.

The Reds enter the weekend in third-place, trailing league-leading Manchester City by two points, and behind Arsenal on goal difference.

If Liverpool drops any more points from here on out, it’s likely curtains for its Premier League title charge.

Liverpool is a -190 favorite on the three-way moneyline at Fulham on Sunday.

Liverpool vs. Fulham prediction 

The wheels have come off a little bit for Liverpool.

Not only did it lose to Crystal Palace at Anfield last weekend to really ding its title hopes, but Liverpool was showing some cracks before that match.

The Reds drew with Manchester United, 2-2, and struggled to get by last-place Sheffield United in the previous match.

Most of Liverpool’s issues stem from their defensive work.

The Reds play with reckless abandon, which puts a lot of pressure on their backline, and it’s not surprising that Liverpool’s defensive numbers lag behind the other title contenders.

The biggest issue is the amount of quality chances that the Reds concede.

Their dynamic attack can usually make up for any defensive misgivings, but that’s a dangerous game to play over the course of a long season if you have aspirations of winning the league.

Fulham is the kind of team that isn’t great at anything, but its also not bad at anything.

That goes for their attack, which is competent enough to take advantage of this wobbly Liverpool defense.

Getting through the full 90 minutes might be too much to ask of Fulham, but the Cottagers could certainly make some headway early in the match.

Liverpool has gone into halftime behind (six) or level (15) on 21 different occasions this seasons.

This is a bet that worked out last weekend, albeit at better odds, so why not go back to the well and see if Liverpool struggles in the opening stages of this match.
