Saturday’s English Premier League betting prediction comes from Anfield as Liverpool host Leeds United in a late night affair under the bright lights. The stakes will be high for both clubs for different reasons as Liverpool need a win to stay within striking distance of the Top 4, while Leeds need a win to drag themselves out of the relegation zone. Here, we break down this significant Liverpool vs Leeds United clash in our soccer betting picks for this weekend.

Liverpool vs Leeds United Betting Pick
This game will be played at Anfield at 2:45 PM ET on Saturday October 29, 2022.
Why Bet The Over:
✅ Expect plenty of goals at Anfield as it is likely Leeds will be throwing everything forward should they fall behind early in this match. Falling behind early is also very likely for Leeds, given they have conceded goals in the first half of their last four matches.
✅ Liverpool will also be eager to put on a show for their fans as their recent matches in front of the Anfield faithful haven’t produced the goalscoring fireworks associated with Klopp’s teams. 1-Nil wins against City and West Ham were the final scores in the last two Premier League home matches for Liverpool, who are warming up in attack after winning 3-0 in Amsterdam against Ajax in the Champions League midweek.
✅ As a bonus prediction, bettors would be wise to take a look at Liverpool -150 in the Half Time Result market. Given Leeds recent penchant for conceding goals in the first half, it is likely Liverpool finds the back of the net in the first 45 minutes of play and heads into the locker rooms with a lead.
Putting together a string of results has been a challenge for manager Jurgen Klopp’s side this season as Liverpool have scuffled in a win one, lose the next merry go round. Just as soon as it looked like the tide was turning for Liverpool after wins against Manchester City and West Ham, it all came crashing back down again with an embarrassing 1-0 defeat in their trip to Nottingham Forest last weekend.
Liverpool’s 4-3-3 record through the first 10 league matches of the season is indicative of a squad that lacks consistency and is open for the taking against motivated opposition. Failing to get all three points against both Fulham and now Forest shows even recently promoted sides can get something out of their matches against this current Liverpool team.
Given Leeds current predicament in the table and the pressure on Jesse Marsch, Klopp will have to make sure his players are ready to match the intensity Liverpool will face on the night. Luckily for the reds, they will also have the Anfield crowd to push them on as the home advantage is always in their favor on the Merseyside.
Things looked so promising for Leeds at the start of the season as the summer months provided a strong start and good times. Leeds opened the season with big wins over Wolverhampton and Chelsea, earning Marsch plaudits for his management in prepping his players to hit the ground running at the start of the new campaign.
Since that big moment against Chelsea where they beat the blues 3-0, Leeds have yet to win another game as it has been two months without securing the full three points out of a fixture for Marsch’s men. Even worse, Leeds has lost their last four matches on the bounce. Including their most recent match against Fulham, where Leeds failed to put forth any type of defensive effort in a 3-2 home defeat that has Marsch’s job in jeopardy.
It doesn’t get any easier for Leeds after this trip to Anfield as they face Tottenham in their last match before the World Cup break. Marsch might not make it beyond that match without coming up with a miracle upset, either this weekend against Liverpool or against Spurs in North London on November 12. If the American manager wants to remain in the Premier League, he needs to come up with a gameplan to get something out of one of these highly difficult away matches.
