Southampton News and Form
The Saints slumped to a heavy loss out at Manchester City last weekend which leaves them on a seven-match winless streak of form. They have produced just a W0 D3 L3 record on home soil in the top flight this season. In total home and away the Saints have come up with just the one goal in their last six league games. That was a consolation in a 6-1 defeat at Manchester City last weekend and it was from the penalty spot as Danny Ings converted. He has pretty much been the only one doing anything up front when the Saints are actually scoring. Danny Ings is the joint 2/1 anytime goalscorer favourite alongside Charlie Austin for this one* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
From their home games Southampton have only netted three goals in total and despite that 60% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. That doesn’t say a great deal about their defence. Under 2.5 goals is at 8/11 for this one* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 3:03 pm). There has been under 2.5 goals in each of Southampton’s last four home games against Watford so there is a big trend there. The Saints are actually unbeaten in 9 of their last 10 against the Hornets, but can they land themselves a big three points this clash? Of the seven home goals that Southampton have conceded this season, all but one of them have been in the second half of games.

Watford News and Form
You never know what is coming from Watford. After back to back wins over Wolves and Huddersfield, they looked to be going in the right direction again. That all fell down though as they suffered a 1-0 loss out at Newcastle last weekend. That leaves the Hornets with a W2 D1 L2 record away from home this season. In none of their last five Premier League games now have both teams scored in a fixture. Both teams NOT to score is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 3:03 pm). Watford have come up with six goals in their five away games this season.
The only time they failed to score in an away game this season was in a 2-0 loss at Arsenal. They have conceded just the five goals on the road, earning the one clean sheet. They have scored 67% of their away goals in the first half of matches this season, while they have conceded 80% of their away goals after the half time break. They do have a few selections problems now with Etienne Capoue out through suspension, while Troy Deeney is a doubt because of injury. Others out injured are Tom Cleverley, Daryl Janmaat and Sebastian Prodl. In seven of their last eight away games, there have been under 2.5 goals in Watford’s games. In the correct score market the 1-1 draw is the shortest-priced option at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 3:03 pm).
Who will win – Southampton v Watford Predictions
The Saints just look extremely poor at the moment and even though they get home advantage and are facing a side who lost on their travels last weekend, Watford are still the ones who appeal. Away win.
