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 News and Form
Southampton are pretty much safe for the season. They would have to lose this heavily and have Swansea heavily beat Stoke on the final day of the season to take a tumble down a tier. The Saints are just W4 D7 L7 at home this season and they have won just one of their last ten at St Mary’s. The lone win in that sequence did happen in their last home match though as edged out south coast rivals Bournemouth at the end of April. Overall home and away the Saints are unbeaten in four (W2 D2) and they took a win of huge importance out at Swansea in midweek to put them on the brink of survival. 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. That will increase the chances of the visitors being off-key. Just 29% of Southampton’s home games this season have gone over 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.). Only West Brom have a worse home record than Southampton do this season and while a win for them is not too likely, all the same, they just don’t have to lose by much.
Manchester City News and Form
The Citizens eased their way past Brighton in their final home match of the season in midweek, giving Yaya Toure a good send off. The Citizens are W4 D1 in their last five games and their away form is a five-match winning streak. Overall their away record for the season stands at W15 D2 L1. The goals are still flowing from them as they have scored at least three goals 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. Away from home specifically they have scored at least three goals in each of their last five and a Man City 3-0 is at 11/1 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 a.m.).

They are unbeaten in six away from home and have scored in each of their last seven road game. City have already broken the record for most goals and most points in a single Premier League season.
