Leicester v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th April 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 19th April 7.45pm Things are looking a bit desperate now in the relegation zone for Southampton who are five points away from safety. They are struggling and they blew a 2-0 lead at home against Chelsea on the weekend to come away empty handed. Leicester have lost their last two league games now though having gone down against Burnley on the weekend. Will they be able to respond at home and sink the Saints further towards the Championship?

Leicester News and Form

Leicester are just in a little dip of form having lost back to back games, which was after drawing back to back games. So they are W2 D2 L2 in their last six. They haven't collected a win in any of their last four home games (D3 L1) and have surprisingly failed to delivered there in some easier-looking fixtures recently. Leicester are W6 D5 L5 for the season at the King Power and have netted in each of their last seven there. Overall home and away they are on a ten-match scoring streak of form, so it’s likely that the will score. Both teams to score with Paddy Power is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:12 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) and that’s because Leicester aren’t particularly tight at the back. They don't have a clean sheet in any of their last four home games, so will be a little vulnerable there. Leicester have produced 22 goals in their 16 home fixtures and just 44% of their home fixtures have managed to get above 2.5 goals. Jamie Vardy is on a four-match scoring streak in the Premier League and is the 7/2 first goalscorer favorite* (Betting Odds taken at 10:12 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) with Paddy Power.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton will have been disappointed with themselves having thrown away a 2-0 lead to come away empty-handed against Chelsea. Basically, they can’t afford to lose this now. They are on a four-match losing streak at the moment though, going winless in seven (D2 L5). The Saints have conceded exactly three goals in each of their last four games, but they have shown a bit of fight with back to back 3-2 losses against Arsenal and then Chelsea. Away from home in the top flight Southampton are on a three-match losing streak away from St Mary’s and have won just twice on their travels all season (D6 L8). That’s been terribly bad form from them and the Saints are averaging under a goal per game away from home so far, conceding at 1.8 on average per game. There has been no clean sheet in their last six road games and overall have only managed one in 19% of their away games. They just have to go out and continue to try and be bold at the moment because they are in dire straits. There’s just no point holding back at the moment. In the Paddy Power correct score market the shortest priced option is the 1-1 draw at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:12 p.m. on April 15th, 2018).

Leicester v Southampton Head to Head

Southampton suffered a 4-1 home loss against the Foxes earlier this season. In the previous seven Premier League meetings the Foxes are W3 D2 L2 against the Saints. Last season’s meeting at the King Power ended in a 0-0 draw and the Foxes are unbeaten in their last four home games against Southampton in all competitions. Leicester have not conceded in their last three at home against the Saints.

Leicester v Southampton Betting Odds*

Leicester 5/4, Southampton 11/5, Draw 23/10* (Betting Odds taken at 10:12 p.m. on April 15th, 2018)

Leicester v Southampton Predictions

Leicester to win: The confidence of the Saints can’t be high, not after what happened to them on the weekend. Leicester are, by and large, a solid home side and can rally themselves to get three midweek points on the board to help secure their top half of the table finish.

Southampton v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th April 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League 14th April 12.30pm Southampton are going to have to snap out of their poor fortunes pretty quickly if they are going to turn around their season. It’s going from bad to worse and they are on a three-match losing streak. Chelsea only managed a home point against West Ham last weekend and are in danger now of slumping out of the top five with Arsenal now hot on their heels.

Southampton News and Form

It is a three-match losing sequence that the struggling Saints find themselves on at the moment and they are winless with a D2 L4 record in their last six played. Since taking a home win over Everton back on November 26th, Southampton have won just one game in the top flight since then. That was in early February against West Brom. There have been just the five wins for Southampton this season. Goals have been a struggle for them too with only having scored in two of their last six league games. Under 2.5 goals at Bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 p.m. on March 20th, 2018) looks a decent option for this game. The home record that Southampton have come up with on home soil this season is W3 D7 L6 and since that aforementioned win over Everton, they are eight games without success at St Mary's. Each of their last four home games have gone under 2.5 goals and they have failed to come up with a goal in their last two at home. Southampton average exactly one goal per home game this season. Only bottom side West Brom have a worse home record that Southampton have this season.

Chelsea News and Form

It hasn’t been a great season for Chelsea who are just limping towards the finish line now. They had full control of their home game against West Ham on the weekend, but couldn’t finish the job and threw away points in a 1-1 draw. That is just a W2 D1 L5 record that Chelsea have come up with in their last eight Premier League games now. They have lost each of their last three away from home, against Watford Man Utd and then Man City and they are left with a W7 D3 L5 away record this season. The just can’t seem to hold things together at the back and there has been no clean sheet for them in their last five league outings. Both teams to score at bet365 may well be worth a flutter at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 p.m. on March 20th, 2018). Chelsea are just struggling to close out games. Alvaro Morata had plenty of chances against West Ham and did look much sharper than he has done in a while. The top four finish has gone for Chelsea and they find themselves in fifth with only the in-form Arsenal now three points behind them. However, it may not be all in vain. The last time they didn’t play in in the Champions League, they won the Premier League (last season).

Southampton v Chelsea Head to Head

Chelsea collected a narrow 1-0 success over the Saints when they met earlier in the season at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are now on a four-match winning streak against Southampton. The Saints, in fact, have won just one of the last nine meetings between the two clubs (W1 D2 L6). Chelsea took a 2-0 win at St Mary’s last season and they are unbeaten in their last four league visit there, winning three of them.

Southampton v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Chelsea 5/6, Draw 13/5, Southampton 10/3* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 p.m. on March 20th, 2018)

Southampton v Chelsea Predictions

Draw: Would it be a huge surprise if neither managed to collect the win in this one? Probably not. Chelsea can’t seem to close out game and Southampton haven’t tasted success in a long while in the top flight. A share of the spoils seems to be the most likely.

Arsenal v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 8th April 2018

Arsenal
Arsenal v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 8th April 2.15pm Southampton head into the weekend two points from safety now and with a real fight on their hands. They were pounded in a big game against West Ham last weekend, suffering a 3-0 loss in London. That hurt them badly and this isn’t an easy game in which to recover either. Arsenal toiled away at home to beat second-from-bottom Stoke last weekend, so more of the same should be expected.

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal are still in the hunt for a top-five finish surprisingly in the league. They are only five points behind fifth-placed Chelsea, so there is a still a chance that they could catch them. However, their main focus is on winning this season's Europa League because that gets them into the Champions League next season which is a better reward. Arsenal have won their last two games in the top flight now, both 3-0 home wins over Watford and Stoke. Overall this season the Gunners hold a powerful W12 D2 L2 record on home soil in the top flight. They have only failed to win one of their last five there and they have netted at least three goals in each of those victories as well in that sequence. In the bet365 correct score market an Arsenal 2-0 success is the shortest-priced option at 15/2 with a 3-0 result at 12/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:35 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). The last seven games at the Emirates have made it over over 2.5 goals and 75% in total this season have made it over the mark.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton are in big trouble after a harrowing 3-0 loss against West Ham last weekend. That leaves them with a lot of work to do still to get free of relegation troubles. They are without a win in their last five league outings now and have lost back to back away games 3-0. They have only come up with the one goal in their last five league games (home and away combined). Their away form is W2 D6 L7 this season on the road. Their away goal tally for the season is at just 13 which is an average of just 0.87 per game while they have conceded at an average rate of 1.75 per game. Four of the seven away defeats they have suffered this season have been by a margin of at least three goals. They have conceded in each of their last five away games and only three teams have earned fewer points than Southampton have done in their last eight games. Both teams not to score is at 21/20 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 7:35 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018) and not bad value.

Arsenal v Southampton Head to Head

Southampton stuck in there for a 1-1 draw against Arsenal at home when the two met back in December. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last four league games against the Saints with a W2 D2 record from that. Overall in their last seven Premier League meetings, the Gunners are only slightly ahead W3 D2 L2 against Southampton. The Gunners will be defending an unbeaten home record the Saints in the Premier League.

Arsenal v Southampton Betting Odds*

Arsenal 8/15, Draw 10/3, Southampton 9/2* (Betting Odds taken at 8:53 p.m. on April 2nd, 2018)

Arsenal v Southampton Predictions

    Arsenal to win: The Saints just aren’t there, they haven’t got a performance in them which suggests that they can bag three huge points for themselves. Arsenal had their extra midweek work in the Europa League so this may take some time to get going. But still, Arsenal to win to nil.

West Ham v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 31st March 2018

West Ham
West Ham v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 31st March 3.00pm A huge survival game between two sides who really weren’t tipped to be in this position come this stage of the season. Southampton are third from bottom, two points away from safety up to West Ham who are one place above them. So this is a crucial game now and after all the unrest at West Ham and their poor form, they could really lift themselves with a victory in this one. Getting it done is another matter though.

West Ham News and Form

West Ham are going to find themselves under tremendous pressure if they suffer another home loss in this one. They are only two points above the drop zone, which is ahead of Southampton, so will be down in the bottom three if they stuff this one up. Their last home game saw them lose 3-0 against Burnley, sparking unrest in the crowds. They haven’t been terrible at home really, losing just one of their last five home fixtures in a W2 D2 L1 sequence of form. It is just overall home and away they are only W1 L4 in their last five and that has seen some big relegation pressure mount on them. This is such a crucial game as far as their survival hopes go right now. To have the chance to go five points clear of the Saints is massive. The Hammers have averaged just over a goal per game at home, conceding an average of 1.4 per game. West Ham have scored 69% of their home goals in the second half of matches so a half-time draw at Ladbrokes does look a decent option to get behind in this one. The Irons have, however, shipped at least two goals in each of their last three league games (eleven goals conceded in total).

Southampton News and Form

The Saints simply cannot afford to lose this one and be cut further adrift in the bottom three. They were taken down 3-0 by Newcastle at St James’ Park in their last away game, which snapped a good four-match unbeaten streak of form that they were on away from St Marys (W1 D3). Southampton have collected just the one league victory since the end of November, but there has been resilience in there by not getting beaten much. Southampton are W1 D5 L2 in their last eight and now have Mark Hughes at the helm to light a fire under them. In the Ladbrokes correct score market, a 1-1 draw is the shortest-priced option at 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 05:42 p.m. on March 26th, 2018) and that result has some appeal in this one. This is probably going to be tight and tense. Neither side will want to come away empty handed in this one. Southampton are looking for just their third away wins of the season, averaging under a goal per game, while conceding an average of 1.6 goals per away game. They are without a clean sheet in their last four on the road.

West Ham v Southampton Head to Head

Southampton rolled out a 3-2 home success over West Ham earlier in the season and in the last five Premier League meetings, it is the Saints who are narrowly 3-2 ahead. Southampton won 3-0 in this corresponding fixture last season. Four of the last five meetings have gone over 2.5 goals.

West Ham v Southampton Betting Odds*

Southampton 8/5, West Ham 9/5, Draw 21/10* (Betting Odds taken at 05:40 a.m. on March 26th, 2018)

West Ham v Southampton Predictions

Southampton to win: Neither of these look really reliable enough to get a win, but the Saints have picked up some good points on the road recently and with West Ham appearing to be in absolute dire straits at the moment, the visitors could land a huge blow.

Newcastle v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 10th March 2018

Newcastle
Newcastle v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 10th March 3.00pm Southampton collected another point last weekend and that was enough to keep them out of the drop zone at least ahead of the next round of matches. Newcastle are just a point and a place above them so there are a hugely important three points up for grabs in this one. However, both have really been struggling to find a winning touch, with just one each in each of their last six.

Newcastle News and Form

There is still considerable pressure on Newcastle's season then with only two points between them and the relegation zone. Creating a buffer between them and the relegation zone is Southampton so this is a hugely important game for the Magpies on home soil. They did collect a surprise 1-0 win over Manchester United in their last home games, which was only their fourth success at St James’ Park this season. The victory snapped an eight-match winless streak that they were on at St James’ Park this season in the top flight. Just 29% of Newcastle's home games this season have made it above two goals and therefore under 2.5 goals at bet365 looks a good place to start for 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:33 p.m. on March 7th, 2018). The Magpies have averaged less than a goal per game at home in the Premier League so far this season, with 12 in 14 games. The Magpies have failed to score in almost half of their home fixtures so far, but they have netted in each of their last three home games. 67% of their home goals have been after the half time break.

Southampton News and Form

This is an equally important game for the Saints as they could claw themselves above the Magpies with three points. The Saints have been a tough side to beat recently, with just the one loss in their last seven played but they have done far too much drawing of matches with them having gone W1 D5 L1 in their last seven. An example of missed opportunities is there 0-0 home draw with Stoke last weekend. Three of their last four league draws have been by a 1-1 scoreline and in the bet365 correct score market the 1-1 option is at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:33 p.m. on March 7th, 2018). Southampton have only picked up the two away wins all season, one of them happening recently out at bottom side West Brom. They do remain unbeaten in four on the road (W1 D3) but again there is a lot of draws recently from them. Adding to the expectancy of a low scoring game is that Southampton have averaged only exactly a goal per game away but both teams have scored in each of their last three away games. Still, with them currently being beaten in four on the road, they should at least be good for a point in this one.

Newcastle v Southampton Head to Head

Quite surprisingly each of the last six meetings between these two have gone above the 2.5 goal line. Two of the last three have been 2-2 draws actually including this season’s earlier clash at St Mary's. Southampton are W3 D2 up from the last five Premier League meetings with Newcastle and are unbeaten in three visits (W1 D2) to St James’ Park.

Newcastle v Southampton Betting Odds*

Newcastle 6/5, Southampton 15/8, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 4:25 a.m. on March 6th, 2018)

Newcastle v Southampton Predictions

Draw: A share of the points looks to be the most likely outcome in his one. They have very similar form and are stuck there together just above the drop zone. It is hard to see who will have enough to win it and because of all the drawn matches, Southampton have churned out lately, back another draw.
/

Southampton v Stoke Predictions & Betting Odds – 3rd March 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Stoke Betting Tips - Premier League 3rd March 3.00pm This should be a pretty interesting game. Southampton have only lost one of their last five league games but they are only two points clear of the drop zone. They get the chance a three big survival points against Stoke who are second from bottom and just the three points back. There’s a huge chance for the Saints to open up a nice cushion for themselves in this one and they’d be in a mess if they were to lose.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints have managed to keep themselves out of the drop zone but only just. They are only clear of the bottom three by goal difference alone. They have bagged a W1 D4 L1 record in their last six league games now and three of those ties were 1-1 draws. In the Ladbrokes correct score market a 1-1 is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:31 p.m. on February 26th, 2018). Five of the last six drawn matches that Southampton have played out in the league have been by that 1-1 scoreline. So it is not a bad trend to consider for sure. Southampton are on a long winless streak of seven games in the top flight now (D4 L3) at home and they are without a clean sheet in any of their last nine at St Marys. So they sure aren't a home form side. Both teams to score does have its appeal in this one. A win for the Saints would see them open up a four points cushion over Stoke and at this stage of the season that could be huge.

Stoke News and Form

Stoke have drawn back to back league games, both by a 1-1 scoreline so there is that scoreline again. The Potters have won just once away from home this season in the top flight (D4 L9) in what has been a shockingly poor season by them. They played out a draw at Leicester on the weekend, which did at least snap a three-match losing streak away from home that they were on. Stoke are just D3 L6 in their last nine away from the Bet365 Stadium so won’t give punters a lot of confidence in them. In their last four road games, Stoke have totalled just the two goals and under 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes has to be the way to swing in this one at 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:31 p.m. on February 26th, 2018). The Potters have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last nine road games in the top flight and 29% of their away games have gone above 3.5 goals and that is mostly down to the fact that they have conceded at an average of 2.4 goals per game. Stoke currently hold the worst defensive record this season in the league as well as the joint-worst away record.

Southampton v Stoke Head to Head

Stoke are carrying the head to head form against the Saints from recent match ups and in the last nine Premier League fixtures between them, the Potters are W4 D3 L2 ahead. Stoke have actually won their last two league games at St Mary's by a 1-0 scoreline and following their 2-1 home win over the Saints earlier this season, it is back to back league wins for the Potters over Southampton.

Southampton v Stoke Betting Odds*

Southampton 3/4, Draw 13/5, Stoke 15/4,* (Betting Odds taken at 04:46 a.m. on February 26th, 2018)

Southampton v Stoke Predictions

Southampton to win: This is intense and with the number of drawn matches these two have picked up recent win the Premier League that’s the tempting option. But the Saints may be worth backing on home soil to go and get the three points. This is really a game where they have to seize all initiative.
/

Burnley v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 24th February 2018

Burnley
Burnley v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 24th February 3.00pm There will probably be a tight duel between the two of these again as there was earlier in the season when they met on the south coast. Burnley's winless streak in the top flight now stands at ten, but they have had the advantage of a good rest while the Saints were busy in FA Cup action on the weekend.

Burnley News and Form

Burnley are pretty desperate to end their winless streak of ten matches in the league now (D5 L5) and of the last fifteen points available to them this season in the league, they have collected just the one, and that was from a surprise 1-1 draw against Champions-elect Manchester City in their last fixture at Turf Moor. Overall this season Burnley's form reads W5 D3 L5 and they have produced only the nine goals on home soil. The Clarets have gone without a clean sheet in any of their last four home games, but still this season they have only conceded the ten goals overall in the league at Turf Moor. Not too surprisingly only 15% of games at Turf Moor this season have gone over 2.5 goals. It’s worth looking under 1.5 goals at Betfair for the fixture at 1/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 8.29 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). It will be well worth considering a half time draw as well. Of their home goals conceded this season, 70% of them have been in the second half of games. Burnley have only been leading three times at half time at Turf Moor this term and seven of their home fixtures have been 0-0 at the break.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton starts the weekend in the bottom three and really need to collect an away win here to give themselves a boost. It would make it back to back away wins for them if they could get it as well after beating West Brom at the Hawthorns in their last away games. That was Southampton’s second win on the road this season but they are W1 D2 in their last three on their travels. Going forward they have averaged a goal per game away from St Marys this season, but home and away combined they haven't managed to take a clean sheet in any of their nine league outings. Just three times this season Southampton have opened the scoring in an away game and are going to have to be patient in this one at Turf Moor in opening up Burnley. Southampton are on a six match scoring streak in the league at the moment, so have been consistent in front of goal and should at least challenge for a point in this one. James Ward-Prowse is their top scorer away from home with three goals. In the Betfair correct score market, the shortest-priced option is on the 1-1 draw at 5/1* (Betting Odds taken at 8.29 p.m. on February 20th, 2018) which will carry plenty of appeal.

Burnley v Southampton Head to Head

Burnley have won their last two games against Southampton 1-0 now in the top flight. In the last three meetings between the two of them at Turf Moor, they have all ended with a 1-0 home success for Burnley. So there is a bit of a trend going on there. Things are split evenly between them in the last seven meetings, with three wins each and a draw.

Burnley v Southampton Betting Odds*

Southampton 9/5, Burnley 9/5, Draw 2/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:46 a.m. on February 20th, 2018)

Burnley v Southampton Predictions

Burnley to win: Back the Clarets to bring their winless streak to an end by taking a 1-0 home victory over the Saints in this weekend clash. They may well benefit from the extra rest. It will likely be a low scoring game.
/

Southampton v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 11th February 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Liverpool Betting Tips - Premier League 11th February 4.30pm The Saints landed a much-needed win last weekend as they went to the Hawthorns and produced a 3-2 victory to give them a bit of breathing space. It snapped a long streak of winless matches that they were on in the top flight. Can they follow it up in this tough home game though? Liverpool were frustrated with their 2-2 home draw against Spurs last weekend after conceding a late penalty. They will be looking to get three points in the bag in the hot race for a top-four finish.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints snapped their massive twelve match winless streak with a 3-2 victory out at West Brom on the weekend. That was just the ticket they needed to get up and away from the drop zone a little bit. The Saints are unbeaten in their last four played now in the Premier League (W1 D3) so they have been harder to beat as of late. That has to be counted as a positive for them. Their last two at St Mary's have ended in a 1-1 draw and four of their last six at home have ended by that scoreline. In the bet365 correct score market a 1-1 draw is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 8:13 p.m.). Just how much will that win have done for them? Southampton have only won three league home games this season (D6 L5) and they have not collected one in any of their last six home fixtures. They are on a good scoring streak of seven home games though, but flip that around and they have conceded in their last eight at home. Still, it may add up nicely to a both teams to score option offering a bit of value.

Liverpool News and Form

The Reds thought that they had beaten Tottenham last weekend before shipping a late, late penalty. Still, they have only lost one league game since losing against Spurs back in October last year, so it has been great form from them. The only defeat in their last seven league games was out at Swansea recently, but Liverpool immediately snapped back to winning away form as they took a 3-0 win at Huddersfield in their next game. The Reds are W7 D3 L3 this season out on the road now and they have scored so freely at an average of 2.5 goals per game away from Anfield. That’s impressive, but they also have not been all that watertight at the back away from home and we have seen many examples this term of them throwing away leads. 62% of their away games have gone over 3.5 which is staggering. Mo Salah was at it again last weekend with a brace and he is the bet365 7/2 outright first goalscorer favorite* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 8:13 p.m.). Liverpool have been leading at half time in seven of their away games this season and they have split their goals evenly over the first and second half of matches. The Reds have actually opened the scoring in 9 of their 13 road games.

Southampton v Liverpool Head to Head

Southampton could not deal with Liverpool in a heavy 3-0 loss at Anfield for them back in November. If you look at the recent battles that these two have had thought, Southampton are slightly up with a W3 D3 L2 against Liverpool in all competitions. The Saints have lost just one of their last six games against Liverpool home and away in all competitions. Southampton are also unbeaten in their last two home games against the Reds too, collecting four points from those games. Four of the last five games between these two of them have gone under 2.5 goals.

Southampton v Liverpool Betting Odds*

Liverpool 3/4, Draw 11/4, Southampton 10/3* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 8:13 p.m.)

Southampton v Liverpool Predictions

Draw: The Reds will be hungry to put that disappointing result against Spurs behind them and they were comfortable 3-0 winners in their last road game out at Huddersfield. However, the Saints recently held out at home against Spurs and at Old Trafford against United and they may have enough to frustrate the visitors.

West Brom v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 3rd February 2018

West Brom
West Brom v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 3rd February 3.00pm This is a real relegation scrap coming at the Hawthorns on the weekend. West Brom are rock bottom after losing heavily against Man City in midweek and they are three points adrift of Southampton who are third from bottom. So the Baggies can ill afford to lose this home game against a fellow relegation-fighter. There are a huge three survival points up for grabs for someone, will the arrival of Daniel Sturridge inspire the Baggies?

West Brom News and Form

Just three wins all season from West Brom have seen them sink to the foot of the table. They suffered an expected loss against Manchester City at the Etihad in midweek and will be happy to get back to home soil where they are unbeaten in three (W1 D2). They may have got themselves a lifeline in the January transfer window by grabbing Daniel Sturridge from Liverpool. Could he bring the goals to save West Brom’s seasons? Sturridge is the joint anytime goalscorer favourite for this game alongside teammate Jay Rodriguez who has been in pretty solid form lately. West Brom have netted in their last two at the Hawthorns and each of their last three games have been under 2.5 goals. Under 2.5 goals for this one at bet365 looks a solid place to start at 3/5* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 02:00 a.m.). The Baggies need help up front as they have only averaged a goal per game and the pace and scoring threat that Sturridge brings could be a piece of genius. No side in the top flight has collected fewer points at home this season than West Brom have (jointly with Newcastle and Watford). Starting the weekend in last place, the pressure is on.

Southampton News and Form

This is going to be a real relegation battle for Southampton and they will have to hold their nerve. They are in a mess, starting the weekend down in third from bottom. They are on a three-match sequence of drawn matches and are winless in twelve league fixtures. They have only collected the one away win all season, which was at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace way back in the middle of September. They have drawn their last two away games and one of those was at Old Trafford against Manchester United which they deserved great credit for. But are they able to find that winning touch? They have not taken a clean sheet in any of their last four games but they have netted in each of their last four too. In total, they have racked up only the nine away goals all season, so it may be worth looking at both teams not to score at bet365 for the fixture. Just three times this season have Southampton opened the scoring in a top-flight away fixture and only West Brom and Stoke have claimed free points on the road than Southampton have done this season. In the form table over the last eight games, only Watford and Burnley have collected fewer than the five points the Saints have managed.

West Brom v Southampton Head to Head

Southampton took a 1-0 home win over the Baggies this season and that is back to back 1-0 wins they have taken over them. Southampton are W3 D1 L1 ahead in their last five games against West Brom in the top flight and they have taken four points from their last two fixtures at the Hawthorns as well. Expect a low scoring game as seven of the last nine meetings have been under 2.5 goals and both teams have scored in just one of the last nine clashes. Five of the last nine meetings have produced a 1-0 scoreline (four wins for the Saints, one for the Baggies).

West Brom v Southampton Predictions

Draw: There's just no appeal whatsoever in picking out a winner in this one. Southampton aren’t losing games at the moment and that suggests that they can at least go and hold their own and get a point out of this one against the Baggies. This should be very tight.

Southampton v Brighton Predictions & Betting Odds – 31st January 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Brighton Betting Tips - Premier League 31st January 7.45pm The Saints will be looking to make the most of home advantage in this one where there is a big three survival points up for grabs. Southampton are stuck in the relegation zone heading into the midweek round of matches, but three points in that tight bottom half of the table would go a long way. Brighton are on a big stretch of winless form out on the road and this is going to be a big test of their grit in this south coast derby.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton have drawn their last two league games and it will be interesting to see if they can use that as a platform for better things. They need a win as they have been on a winless streak since the end of last November in the Premier League. But with back to back draws against Watford and Tottenham, plus an FA Cup win over Watford on the weekend things are looking a little brighter for them, even though the Saints are only W1 D3 L2 in their last six home games, winless in five at St Mary's. They have averaged a goal per game just above on home soil this season while they are on a six-match scoring streak at home in the league. So that alone will give them a chance against the low scoring Seagulls. The Saints have gone without a clean sheet in any of their last seven league home games, but they may not get tested too much at the back in this one. In the William Hill correct score market a Southampton 1-0 is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken on January 29th, 2018 at 6:57 p.m.) and that looks a very good option. The club seems to be putting all of their faith in Mauricio Pellegrino as they have not given him the boot and there is a big chance to ease a little bit of pressure by snapping their eleven match winless streak in midweek.

Brighton News and Form

Brighton’s season is starting to look in just a little bit of jeopardy at the moment with one win only in their last thirteen league games. That lone victory came in a home success over Watford back just before Christmas. They are on a six-match winless streak away from the Amex in the Premier league, picking up only one point in that sequence from a draw against Newcastle. The problem for Brighton on producing goals. They have not scored a single goal in any of their last six away games and overall in their last nine league outings home and away, they have scored in just two of them. So Southampton to win to nil at William Hill has to have some appeal. The Seagulls have amassed only the five away goals this season and with their defence leaking goals that they are unable to compensate for going forward, they are going to be a survival battle. Brighton have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three league games and as each of their last seven road games have all gone under 2.5 goals so that's another good trend to roll with for this game. The fears of relegation will feel more real if they suffer a loss in this south coast derby.

Southampton v Brighton Betting Odds*

Southampton 4/5, Draw 23/10, Brighton 9/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 29th, 2018 at 6:20 p.m.)

Southampton v Brighton Predictions

Southampton to win: Brighton just don’t have the away form to warrant backing them to go and cause an upset in this one at all. The Saints took a good 1-0 home win over Watford in the FA Cup on the weekend and can probably roll out the same result over the visiting Seagulls on league duty in this one.
