Southampton v Brighton Predictions & Betting Odds – 17th September 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Brighton Betting Tips - Premier League, 17th September 8.00pm A south coast derby concludes the action to the Premier League weekend and this one will be interesting to see who can gain the upper hand. The Saints and the Seagulls are stuck on four points each and could really use the buffer of another three points. Read our predictions for Southampton v Brighton.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton breathed a sigh of relief after having gotten their first win of the new season on the board just before the international break. That was in a 2-0 success away from home against Crystal Palace. That moved Southampton onto four points from four games. So far at St Mary ’s though this season, the Saints have picked up just one point from two games, that point coming in a draw with Burnley. There is an issue with their home form because they have won just one of their last thirteen Premier League home games. Still, you would imagine that the win over Palace gave them a boost and Southampton to Southampton v Brighton Predictions & Betting Odds - 17th September 2018* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.) They are pretty much at full strength for the game so Mark Hughes doesn't have any worries there. Whichever way the game ends up going, for our Southampton v Brighton predictions were are looking under 2.5 goals and that is an 8/13 odds option at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.). Southampton have seen under 2.5 goals in each of their last three against Brighton. They don’t look as if goals are easily going to come their way, but Danny Ings has two of their three league goals this term. All four of their goals this season have come in the second half of matches so the half time draw should have big appeal.

Brighton News and Form

It has been four points from Brighton this season from their four games, three of which came in that famous home win over Manchester United. However, after their draw with Fulham just before the international break, they head out on the road where they don’t have form. The Seagulls haven’t managed a point or even a goal yet away from the Amex. Both teams to NOT score is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.). Both of Brighton’s away games this season have ended up that way so that is a small trend we are going to consider for our Southampton v Brighton predictions. The Seagulls have failed to win any of their last fifteen games out on the road in the Premier League. There is another trend where they have been losing at half time and at full time in each of their last four road games in the top flight. A Southampton/Southampton half time/full time bet is at 5/2 odds and is worth considering because of that* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.). There have been problems with their defence which is going to leave them vulnerable, Brighton conceding exactly two goals in three of their four games played this term.

Southampton v Brighton Head to Head

Southampton went to Brighton in the EFL Cup This season and produced a 1-0 win. Last season there were only 1-1 draws in both Premier League meetings. Those were the first games between them since the 2011/12 Champions League. Both teams have scored in just three of the last seven classes. Southampton are unbeaten in three on home soil against the Seagulls (W1 D2).

Southampton 11/10 Draw 9/4 Brighton 11/4 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.)

Southampton v Brighton Predictions

Southampton to win: Given that Brighton’s points have all come at the Amex this season then we have to pass on them to collect a road win in this derby. Instead, Southampton's spirits should have been lifted with their win over Palace before the international break and we are backing them to edge this by a one-goal margin.

Crystal Palace v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 1st September 2018

Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League, 1st September 3.00pm Palace opened the season with a good win but it has been back to back defeats for them to follow up with. So they will be keen to stop that losing momentum as they kick off at home against Southampton on the weekend. The Saints have only managed one point for the season and like Palace, have lost their last two games played. Read our predictions for Crystal Palace v Southampton.

Crystal Palace News and Form

Crystal Palace have slumped to back to back defeats and will be looking to post a big response to that in this home game on the weekend. The defeats were against Watford and Liverpool. Wilfried Zaha has scored two of their three league goals this season and he is the 7/4 joint anytime goalscorer favourite for this one alongside teammate Christian Benteke who is yet to get off the mark* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Palace have scored all of their goals from open play this season. Their only other home game this season saw them compete well in a 2-0 loss against the very strong Liverpool shipping a penalty and a 90th-minute goal. They get a boost as defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka is available after his suspension, but they are missing Pape Souare and Scott Dann. Southampton have actually averaged more shots per game than Crystal Palace have done this seasons, but still, Crystal Palace have scored more than their opponents. We don't see a lot of goals flying around in his one and under 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Palace were on a three-match winning streak in the league at home before that recent loss against Liverpool there. They finished last season with a W7 D5 L7 record at Selhurst Park.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton still look a fair way from getting their first win of the season. It was a 0-0 home draw against Burnley to start with. Then it was back to back defeats against Leicester and Everton. Both of those defeats that the Saints suffered were 2-1 losses. Taking that one-goal margin losing streak forward to Crystal Palace v Southampton predictions, a Crystal Palace 1-0 correct score for this one is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) and Southampton just are looking a bit short for quality overall. The Saints have managed to win just three of their last 28 Premier League fixtures now and if they were to lose this one, you can only imagine boss Mark Hughes will be a bit closer to being shown the door. Hughes is at 9/2 in the Premier League Next Manager To Go market* (Betting Odds were taken from August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). The Saints won just three times away from home last season, averaging under a goal per game. We don’t see much better coming from them this season.

Crystal Palace v Southampton Head to Head

The two of them traded away wins in the top flight last season and both victories there will be by a one-goal margin. Things are even with three wins each over the last six top-flight clashes between Crystal Palace and Southampton. The Saints have won three of their last four at St Mary's against Palace in all competitions and surprisingly three of the last four meetings between them in the Premier League have actually produced over 2.5 goals.

Crystal Palace v Southampton Betting Odds*

Crystal Palace 19/20 Draw 5/2 Southampton 14/5 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 29th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)

Crystal Palace v Southampton Predictions

Crystal Palace to win: The appeal in Crystal Palace v Southampton predictions is just the home win. Palace play with a lot more energy and purpose than you will see from Southampton and we are backing the home side to go and collect three points.

Southampton v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 25th August 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League, 25th August 3.00pm After their opening defeat against Manchester United, Leicester gave themselves a lift with a solid home victory over Wolves in a Midlands derby last weekend. But it came at a cost a Jamie Vardy picked up a red card. Southampton have only managed the one point so far and they look as if they are going to be suffering from a lack of goals again. Can they come up with three points on home soil? Read our predictions for Southampton v Leicester.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton do look as if they are going to struggle this season as out of the gate there doesn’t look to be much improvement from them from last term. They opened with a 0-0 draw at home against Burnley and then lost 2-1 out at Everton last weekend. They were already down 2-0 at halftime. Danny Ings got their consolation goal in the game and he is at 11/5 odds for this one* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.). Only teammate Charlie Austin in a shorter price in the market. The Saints still won't be quite at full strength because of injury/illness issues over Mohamed Elyounoussi and Jannik Vestergaard who didn’t play last weekend. Southampton do have some poor home form going with a just one win in their last twelve league home games. The Saints have, somewhat surprisingly, produced more shots on average per game than Leicester have done this season. There has just been a lack of quality in taking chances. Also, their pass success rate has been under 70% on average this season as well. The Saints scored at Goodison Park from a set piece and they have not been shy in firing off long balls as well as long shots. Last season they had a difficult time at home in the top flight as the Saints went just W4 D7 L8 at St Mary's, scoring just the 20 goals in their 19 games. For our Southampton v Leicester predictions, we are going to stick under 2.5 goals at 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.).

Leicester News and Form

There is no Jamie Vardy for Leicester who starts his three-match suspension after his red card last week in Leicester's win over Wolves. That is a big blow for them as he is their main striker and he had scored already this season in their 2-1 loss at Man Utd on the opening weekend of the season. Last weekend at home against Wolves, Leicester benefitted from an own goal and a finish from summer signing James Maddison. With Vardy sidelined now, we will likely see Kelechi Iheanacho leading the line for the Foxes and he is an 11/5 odds anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.). As well as Vardy missing, the Foxes are missing Caglar Söyüncü and Shinji Okazaki because of lack of match fitness, while Matty James is dealing with an injury. Leicester are actually on a four-match losing streak on the road in the Premier League. Leicester have conceded at least two goals now in each of their last four games away from the King Power. There have been over 2.5 goals in seven of their last eight road games, but still, even with that trend, it’s hard to see that happening in this one. Leicester's away form was disappointing last season as they got a W5 D5 L9 record on the board, putting boss Claude Puel under some pressure. The three points against Wolves last weekend were a big pressure-release for him. We are going to look at the value of the halftime draw at even money* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.) for our Southampton v Leicester predictions. The Foxes were level at halftime in eleven of their away games last season and we expect this to be tight.

Southampton v Leicester Head to Head

Southampton managed just the one point from their two league games against Leicester last season and they suffered a 4-1 home defeat in that. In the last six Premier League meetings the Foxes just shade things with a W2 D2 L1 record over the Saints and they are W1 D1 L1 in their last three trips to the South Coast against them. Both teams have scored in just one of the last five league meetings.

Southampton v Leicester Betting Odds*

Southampton 13/10 Leicester 11/5 Draw 11/5 * (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.)

Southampton v Leicester Predictions

Leicester to win: We don’t really see how Southampton are going to be winning too many games this season and because it is Leicester who look to have the more dynamic attack of the two sides, we have to back an away win. It’s a straight shot on a Leicester win for our Southampton v Leicester prediction.

Everton v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 18th August 2018

Everton
Everton v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League, 18th August 3.00pm There was a draw for both of these on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season. Everton were out on the road and battling out a 2-2 draw against the newly-promoted Wolves, while Southampton could only manage a 0-0 home draw against Burnley. Will either of them be able to go and collect their first win of the new term as they face off at Goodison Park on Saturday? Read our predictions for the Everton v Southampton game.

Everton News and Form

Everton could only manage a point out at Wolves last weekend, despite taking the lead twice in the game. They will have to make a change at the back as well after having had Phil Jagielka sent off in the game. Richarlison, who got both of Everton’s goals in the game picked up a calf injury so is a bit of a doubt for this one. It has been a big summer of change for the Toffees with new players coming in and a new manager in Marco Silva. They will more time for it all to click together. Toffees striker Cenk Tosun is the 8/5 anytime goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.) and he does look as if he could have a profitable season for the Toffees. Last season in the Premier League the Toffees got themselves a W10 D4 L5 record. Among that, they didn't get a single win at Goodison Park against any of the seven sides who finished above them. But against the rest of the teams in the league, they went W10 D2 at home last term. Everton are undefeated in their last 12 home games against the Saints so that will suggest that they are going to avoid defeat in this one. There have been under 2.5 goals in each of Everton’s last three Premier League home games. So we have to back that trend, so under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.).

Southampton News and Form

Southampton opened with a 0-0 draw against Burnley last weekend, which was somewhat predictable under the circumstances. The Saints do look as if they will be struggling to hit the back of the net this season and therefore both teams not to score at bet365 is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.). It was not a good season that Southampton had away from home last term. They went and picked up just a W3 D8 L8 record on their travels. There was only aclean sheet in just 26% of their away games last season as well while they netted only 0.9 goals on average per away game. While they don’t look to have improved too much over the summer in terms of travel, new signing Mohamed Elyounoussi did have a decent game against Burnley off the bench. Southampton were pretty strong and organised at the back last weekend and keeper Alex McCarthy performed well in goal. But you have to put that into context as they were up against a somewhat limited Burnley attack. But still, there will be the question about their ability to have a high output in front of goal. In the bet365 correct score market an Everton 1-0 is right there at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.) heading up the market. They will be trying to stand up against a much more fluent Everton attack this weekend though.

Everton v Southampton Head to Head

It was Southampton who came out on top in the two meetings in the Premier League last season. The Saints collected four points including a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park against the Toffees. Three of the four meetings between the two sides in the Premier League have ended in a home win. In the last six league meetings, things are even with two wins each and the two drawn matches. Both draws in that sequence were 1-1 ties.

Everton v Southampton Betting Odds*

Everton 18/20 Draw 23/10 Southampton 3/1 * (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.)

Everton v Southampton Predictions

Draw: We actually don't see either side doing enough to record a win in this fixture. It has been a long time since Southampton collected a win at Goodison Park and they aren’t likely to offer enough of an offensive threat to make it happen in this one. Everton are still finding their feet under Silva so our prediction for Everton v Southampton is a draw.

Southampton v Burnley Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th August 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Burnley Betting Tips - Premier League, 12th August 1.30pm The Saints had a season to forget last term as they were struggling along at the wrong end of the table and nothing much has happened over the summer to go and change that this season. This is a tricky opener for them at St Mary's as Burnley will have a slight edge over them in terms of match sharpness. The Clarets have already played three competitive games in their Europa League qualification campaign.

Southampton News and Form

After finishing just above the relegation zone last season, you would have thought that Southampton would be keen to get to the summer and freshen things up. They haven’t really done all that much, to be honest. It was a poor return from them overall last season and they are sticking with Mark Hughes, who didn’t really change their fortunes after coming in to ensure that they stayed afloat. The fixture list at the start of the season does look fairly kind to them so they are going to have to come out strongly. All that they have done in the transfer market is bring in keeper Angus Gunn and defender Jannik Vestergaard. That’s no real great step forward for them and we can only look under 1.5 goals at 7/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.). It’s hard to see the goals flying around in this one. Southampton's last three games of the 2017/18 season all finished under 2.5 goals and five of their last six against Burnley in all competitions have gone that way. The Saints didn’t even make it to an average of a goal per home game last season they were that poor going forward. To address that they spent big on Mohamed Elyounoussi to come into the left side while getting Danny Ings from Liverpool on loan. Starting at home the pressure will be on the Saints and they are facing a well drilled Burnley defence. The positive is, is that Hughes doesn’t have any issues over fitness or injury in his squad. Bad news is that they have failed to win all but one of their last eleven Premier League home games.

Burnley News and Form

Burnley are further along than the Saints are in terms of match fitness as they have been through some Europa League qualification matches. On Thursday they had a tough trip to Israel to face Istanbul Basaksehir and they came out with a 0-0 draw. In the game, they gave Joe Hart his club debut and he looked pretty bright and solid in his performance. Boss Sean Dyche is going to have to start with his balancing act them, perhaps changing the starting eleven to the one that played on Thursday night to keep things fresh. For example, they didn’t use record signing Ben Gibson on Thursday and neither did striker Matej Vydra who looks as if he could be a great capture for the Clarets. In the bet365 correct score market a Burnley 1-0 is at 10/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.) and it’s hard to see them getting a win any other way. The Clarets didn't win any of their final five games of last season’s Premier League campaign as they ran out of steam a little bit. Surprisingly there was over 2.5 goals scored in eight of Burnley's final ten games. But we expect them to be a lot tighter than that against a not particularly threatening Southampton side. Burnley did concede a goal in both legs of their Europa League tie against Aberdeen but they looked so much stronger and more like themselves on Thursday out in Israel. The Clarets collected a W7 D7 L5 record away from Turf Moor in the top flight last season, part of the reason why they got that great seventh-place finish. They only just barely finished with above an average of a goal per game away from home though.

Southampton v Burnley Head to Head

Not too surprisingly the meetings in the top flight between Southampton and Burnley last season were low-scoring affairs. Burley came out on top though with four points from the two games though, getting the win at St Marys. The Clarets are unbeaten (W2D1) in their last three Premier League games against the Saints but they have lost two of their three previous Premier League trips to the south coast. Five of the six previous meetings in the Premier League ended under 2.5 goals.

Southampton v Burnley Betting Odds*

Southampton 5/6 Draw 13/5 Burnley 4/1 * (Betting Odds were taken on March 20th, 2018 at 00:22 p.m.)

Southampton v Burnley Predictions

Burnley to win: Just because Southampton look to have stagnated we are going with Burnley to bag three points here. They have had those games under their belt already this season which helps in terms of match sharpness. We can see the visitors sneaking this and a Burnley to win & under 2.5 goals option looks a strong prediction for the Southampton v Burnley match up.

Southampton v Manchester City Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th May 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Manchester City Betting Tips - Premier League 13th May 3.00pm Southampton have a nine-point goal-difference advantage over Swansea having won at the Liberty Stadium in midweek. So they will be showing up at home on the weekend just trying to not get beaten heavily by the Champions. A point guarantees that they will be safe in the game. City signed off their home campaign in midweek with a comfortable win over Brighton.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton should be safe at the end of the season as long as their defence doesn’t collapse enormously. They would have to lose this and have Swansea beat Stoke on the final day, with the Welsh club needing to flip a nine-point goal difference disadvantage that they have against the Saints to beat Southampton to safety. That’s not likely to happen. Southampton only have a home record of W4 D7 L7 this season and they have won just one of their last ten at St Mary's. The lone success during that run of games did happen in their last home game when they beat Bournemouth at the back end of April. Southampton are unbeaten in their last four games W2 D2 so they have fought well when it has mattered most, including a win of huge importance over Swansea in midweek. Southampton have produced 20 goals in 18 home games this season and they will probably be thankful that Manchester City have already won the title and had their celebrations. They will be hoping that the Citizens will be taking the afternoon of. Just 29% of Southampton’s home games this season have gone under 2.5 goals but as this is Man City regardless of their focus over 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 8/15 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.). Southampton have the second-worst home record this season.

Manchester City News and Form

Manchester City took a win at home over Brighton in their final home fixture of the season. That is a stretch of W4 D1 that they have put on the board and out on the road, they have won each of their last five. Overall their away record for the season stands at W15 D2 L1. They are still scoring freely with at least three goals netted in five of their last seven games played and in the bet365 correct score market a Manchester City 2-0 is at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.) the joint shortest-price along with a 2-1 success for them. The Citizens have netted at least three goals in each of their last five away games though and a Man City 3-0 is at 11/1 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.). They have averaged 2.4 goals per away game this season and have earned a clean sheet in 50% of their away games. They are on a seven-match scoring streak on their travels, unbeaten in six. City have already broken the record for most goals and most points in a single Premier League season.

Southampton v Manchester City Head to Head

Manchester City collected a 2-1 home win over the Saints earlier in the season making it back to back wins in the league over them. In the last five Premier League meetings between the two clubs, Southampton are W1 D1 L3 against the Citizens. Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings and the Saints are W2 D1 L2 in their last five home games against Manchester City.

Southampton v Manchester City Betting Odds*

Man City 2/5, Draw 15/4, Southampton 6/1* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 9th, 2018)

Southampton v Manchester City Predictions

Man City to win: The Citizens are just enjoying themselves at the moment and are still likely to be a threat in the match regardless. Southampton have done much better recently with their performances and just so they don’t sweat, just have to watch the goals against them. Away win and over 2.5 goals.

Swansea v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 8th May 2018

Swansea
Swansea v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 8th May 7.45pm What a tense setup there is for this one. Swansea and Southampton are sat level on points, Swansea third from the bottom and the Saints above them on goal difference. It’s that tight and so the three points up for grabs in this one is going to be absolutely massive ahead of the final weekend of action. Whoever wins will be guaranteed to be going to the final weekend with a three points cushion above the drop zone. That’s huge but Swansea are now looking the more desperate because of a far worse goal difference situation. Neither can afford to lose this one.

Swansea News and Form

There could be big trouble ahead for Swansea unless they win this. They are heading into their penultimate league game on a three-match losing streak, not scoring in any of those loses. The Swans have scored in just two of their last seven games now (for a total of two goals). Whichever way you look at this fixture, a huge survival scrap, it is likely to be a low scoring, tight and tense game and under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:45 pm. on May 6th, 2018). Swansea are W6 D3 L8 at home for the season but have only lost one of their last six at the Liberty Stadium in a W4 D1 L1 record posted. They are level on points with the Saints but are far worse off in goal difference so really they have to win this. They struggled for any offensive power in their loss at Bournemouth on the weekend and have only managed the sixteen goals in their seventeen home games this season. Just 35% of their home games have made it above the 2.5 goal line. Swansea are without a clean sheet in their last three home games and 69% of the goals that they have produced at the Liberty Stadium have been in the second half of matches.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints are doing alright in terms of form having produced a W1 D2 record in their last three played. After beating Bournemouth, they went to Everton on the weekend and so nearly got themselves another three points, but the Toffees equalised in the final minute. Will that come back to haunt Southampton? At least the Saints have been showing resilience and some signs of a fight. A key difference between the two sides is that Southampton are scoring and have scored in all but one of their last five played. In the bet365 correct score market at Southampton 1-0 is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:45 pm. on May 6th, 2018). The Saints have a tough final game against Manchester City so realistically they are going to have to make it count here. If they can take three points at Swansea, then with their goal difference advantage that should be enough to get them safe. The Saints are just D2 L3 in their last five away games (scoring in just two of those). Can they deliver a survival win?

Swansea v Southampton Head to Head

There was a 0-0 draw at St Mary's when Swansea paid a visit earlier in the season and that means that three of the last four between these have ended under 1.5 goals. Southampton have a slight edge in the recent head to head having gone W3 D1 L1 against Swansea. Swansea took a win on home soil in last season’s meeting though, bagging a 1-0 success.

Swansea v Southampton Betting Odds*

Southampton 6/4, Swansea 15/8, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 00:06 a.m. on May 6th, 2018)

Swansea v Southampton Predictions

Southampton to win: Swansea are sliding and they couldn’t make anything happen offensively against Bournemouth on the weekend and that’s a huge problem. The Saints are probably the ones out of the two who can come up with a little more in the attack. Back an away win in what will probably be a tight game.

Everton v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th May 2018

Everton
Everton v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 5th May 5.30pm Southampton boosted their survival hopes last weekend with a home win over Bournemouth in the south coast derby. They are still in the relegation zone but a point this weekend could be enough to get them out if Swansea fails to win their game. Everton have put together a nice run of form to go four matches undefeated in the league and have been improving on their travels as well.

Everton News and Form

Everton are closing out the season in a positive frame of mind it would seem even though fans aren’t happy with their style of play. They are W2 D2 in their last four games and have bagged themselves a clean sheet in three of those four games (home and away combined). On the back of that, Everton to win to nil at Coral is at 15/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:395 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). Everton have taken a clean sheet in 39% of their home games this season. With their last two fixtures at home having stayed under the 2.5 goal line that is a good option for this one too. Everton have posted a good season on Merseyside with a W10 D3 L5 home record and each of those defeats were against sides currently above them. So they have handled themselves well against the lower standing sides. Everton have an average of 1.5 goals per home game this term and 74% of their home goals have come in the second half of home fixtures. They are just winding down the season at this point.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints are battling for their Premier League lives at the moment. They got three points last weekend with a home win over south coast rivals Bournemouth which was a big boost for them. Still, they didn’t look particularly fluent at any point, but they got the points and have a chance of getting themselves safe. The win snapped an eight-match winless streak (D3 L5) that they were on. The last time that they were out on the road they played out a draw with Leicester and that leaves them winless in five away from home, collecting just the two points in hat sequence. They have only scored in one of their last four road games too. Overall Southampton are averaging under a goal per game on their travels and have failed to score in 41% of their away games. Only three players have produced more than one away goal for them this season, one of them being Charlie Austin (2) who looks their best route to a goal at the moment. Their hom win against Bournemouth at home doesn’t change the nature of their poor season. Both teams not to score at Coral is at 10/11 odds with some appeal* (Betting Odds taken at 10:395 p.m. on May 1st, 2018).

Everton v Southampton Head to Head

Southampton landed a big 4-1 home success at St Mary's over Everton at the end of November and each of the last three meetings between these two have ended in a home victory.

Southampton v Bournemouth Predictions & Betting Odds – 28th April 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Bournemouth Betting Tips - Premier League 28th April 3.00pm Big game coming up on the south coast. Southampton are in big relegation trouble and would be in a lot deeper if they were to lose this one against their rivals. The Saints simply have to turn up and deliver on home soil but they are out of winning form. Still, Bournemouth aren’t quite firing as well as they were and so the Saints have a chance to rally themselves.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints need to collect three points in this one. They are four points away from Premier League safety at the moment and have just the four games to go. So it is all on the line at the moment. They lost their FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea over the weekend and now turn to the serious business of trying to avoid relegation from the top flight. Southampton have a D3 L5 record in their last eight league games home and away and are struggling in front of goal. The Saints have scored in just two of their last six league games and their home form is poor right now. They haven't taken a win in any of their last nine games at home in the top flight and have only managed the three wins in total there all season (D7 L7). Southampton have produced 18 goals in 17 home games this season but have netted in just one of their last three on home soil. Just 35% of their home games have made it above the 2.5 goal line. Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 11/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 0:41 p.m. on April 24th, 2018). In total, the Saints have managed a clean sheet in just 18% of games at St Mary’s.

Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth are not running in top gear at the moment and go into this one on the back of two straight defeats (against Man Utd and Liverpool). But the bigger picture is that they have won just one of their last nine league games and are winless in four. They are winless in four on the road as well, shipping ten goals in that short run of away games. They are open at the back and in the bet365 correct score market a Southampton 1-0 is at 15/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 0:41 p.m. on April 24th, 2018). Bournemouth have just a W3 D6 L8 record away from home in the top flight this season, averaging just under a goal per game on their travels. The Cherries have conceded at an average of 1.6 goals per away game and have a clean sheet in just 18% of their road games. They are running on a ten-match sequence without a clean sheet (home and away combined) but if they turn all of that around and take an away win, they will leave their south coast rivals in heaps of trouble.

Southampton v Bournemouth Head to Head

The season’s earlier meeting produced a 1-1 draw at the Vitality and that is back to back drawn results between them. Southampton are narrowly W2 D2 L1 up against the Cherries from the five previous Premier League meetings. The Saints are unbeaten in their two previous Premier League home games against the Cherries (W1 D1) and they are undefeated in their previous 13 home games against the Cherries in all competitions throughout history. Bournemouth have failed to score in their last four visits to St Mary's.

Southampton v Bournemouth Betting Odds*

Southampton 13/20, Draw 14/5, Bournemouth 4/1* (Betting Odds taken at 6:25 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018)

Southampton v Bournemouth Predictions

Southampton to win: Home and advantage and meeting the Cherries who aren’t quite in their best form at the moment presents the Saints with a big chance of getting something together in this one. Back a home win. How badly they need it.

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.

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.
