Jurgen Klopp will demand a reaction to the first dropped points in the Premier League, so Liverpool handicap betting looks worth investing in for their Champions League group game in Genk,
This Tuesday tie sees the pool whipping boys host the European Cup holders in Belgium.
As the Reds are long odds-on in the regular match markets with bookmakers, Asian Handicaps provide value.
Genk come into this home game off the back of an away defeat at Standard Liege. They are also 10 points off the pace in their domestic league after winning the Belgian title last term.
Premier League leaders Liverpool are still clear at the top of that division, but trail Napoli in Europe.
While the Italians tackle tricky Austrian outfit Red Bull Salzburg away, this is the Reds’ easiest game on the road.
Why Liverpool handicap betting makes sense
The -2.75 bracket for Liverpool handicap betting looks the best value at 11/4 with 888Sport. This is because of a strict form line through Salzburg.
Klopp’s crew beat the Austrian Bundesliga boys 4-3 in a previous group game. Genk, meanwhile, were hammered 6-2 by Salzburg.
On that basis, the Reds should be more than capable of winning by a three-goal margin or above.
The Reds also welcome Mo Salah back after he missed the draw with Manchester United. Such a potent threat returning to their ranks only adds to the appeal of this punt.
Anfield boss Klopp cannot afford to take this game lightly. Liverpool’s Champions League group is proving more likely in practice than it looked on paper.
It’s a golden opportunity to exploit any Napoli slip up in Salzburg and should be treated as such. The Reds have scored three or more in five of their 13 competitive games so far this season too.
That suggests they are capable of overturning an imagined deficit on the Asian Handicaps in Belgium.
Bet of the Day: 11/4 with 888Sport, Liverpool handicap betting at -2.75 against Genk.
