Liverpool-Olympiakos Betting Preview: Why backing a low-scoring contest could prove profitable

There was just one goal in the Reds' first match in the USA and our tipster again expects few goals when the Premier League side face Michel's men
Liverpool lost the opening match of their US tour after slipping to a 1-0 reverse at the hands of Roma on Thursday and Brendan Rodgers' Reds will be desperate to bounce back when they tackle Greek champions Olympiakos on Sunday night.  

The English Premier League side are warm favourites to get back to winning ways here, with bet365 going just 8/11 (1.72) for a Liverpool win in their International Champions Cup opener.
Michel's side can be backed at a juicy 7/2 (4.50) with bet365 to claim victory on Sunday while the same firm go 11/4 (3.75) that the match in Chicago ends in stalemate.
Liverpool were red-hot in front of goal last term, notching a hugely impressive 101 Premier League goals and they will be eager to hit the goal trail against Olympiakos on Sunday night.
However, Rodgers' side failed to find the net against Roma and the Reds may still be adjusting to life without talismanic striker Luis Suarez, who sealed a big money move to Barcelona earlier this month.
With that in mind, the even money (2.0) quote from bet365 for fewer than three goals to be scored in Chicago this weekend looks to carry plenty of appeal, while the 13/10 (2.30) quote from the same firm for the first-half to end level is sure to attract plenty of support from punters.
Despite suffering a setback against Roma, Liverpool look to be too strong for their Greek opponents and the 8/11 (1.72) quote from bet365 for the Reds to record their first victory of the tournament looks to be a solid selection.
However, goals could well prove to be at a premium in Chicago on Sunday night and, therefore, it is the generous even money (2.0) quote for fewer than three goals to be scored that is the recommended play for punters this weekend.

Under 2.5 goals at even money (2.0) for a 1pt stake with bet365
