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. Everton are well up in the head to head against Southampton and including their 3-0 home win over the Saints last season, the Toffees are W9 D3 in their last twelve league games at Goodison Park against Southampton. Both teams have scored in just two of the last eight league meetings between the two of them.

Everton v Southampton Betting Odds*

Southampton 11/8, Everton 19/10, Draw 23/10* (Betting Odds taken at 08:49 p.m. on April 30th, 2018)

Everton v Southampton Predictions

Draw: Everton’s home form hasn’t been that bad this season but they aren’t playing for anything here. Southampton most definitely are playing for something, but even in winning last weekend, they looked pretty poor. Draw.

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. 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.

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 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.
