Cardiff will be looking for more home joy as they play host to Southampton on the weekend. This is going to be a big game in the fight against relegation. The Bluebirds have picked up some great results on home soil lately. Will that spell more trouble for Southampton who are a club in transition after the recent sacking of manager Mark Hughes. Read our Cardiff v Southampton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 7:41 p.m.)
Cardiff had another setback in midweek as they went to West Ham and suffered a 3-1 loss. That extended a trend with the Bluebirds as they have alternated between a loss and a win in each of their last five (W2 L3). The positive is, if that continues then they would be due a win on home soil here. The Bluebirds have produced form of W3 D1 L4 at home so far this season. Their last two home successes have both been by a 2-1 scoreline. Their form at home has definitely been on the up as they are W3 L1 in their last four there. In total on home turf Cardiff have come up with 11 goals and they have conceded 15.
75% of their home games in the EPL have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Surprisingly, almost 40% of their home games this season have seen at least five goals. That’s largely down to the defence of Cardiff as they have managed only the one clean sheet at home this season. They are on a run of seven games on home soil without a clean sheet at the moment. Home and away combined they have shipped at least one goal in each of their last twelve. Both teams have scored in 62% of games in Cardiff. The Bluebirds have yet to be winning at half time in any league game this season.
The last league meeting was in the 2013/14 EPL season
There was an away win for both during that season
Cardiff have won five of their last six at home against the Saints
Three of Cardiff’s last five home wins over the Saints have been 2-1 wins
Southampton took another big hit in midweek. New boss Ralph Hasenhuttl watched on as their defence once again fell apart in a 3-1 loss against Spurs. That result leaves Southampton with no win in their last eleven league games. Southampton have alternated between a draw and a loss in each of their last six games. This season on their travels in the top flight, the Saints have come up with seven goals and they have conceded nineteen. 62% of Southampton’s away games have ended over 2.5 goals which largely sums up the difficulties they have been having at the back.
The Saints are on a three-match losing streak on the road and they have shipped twelve goals in those three games. In five of their eight road games, this season the Saints have been losing at half time in five of those. They have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last five (home and away combined) and have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three road games. Southampton are looking to snap a six-match winless away streak. 63% of their away goals conceded have been in the first half of games. Only Cardiff and Fulham have a worse away record than Southampton this season. Only three teams have conceded more goals than they have done.
The fact that Cardiff have been finding ways to pick up good points on home soil should count for something in this one. They may have enough to get past a Southampton side who are still trying to sort their future out.

The Saints took action and sacked Mark Hughes as they look to shake things up. They did play out a 2-2 draw against Man Utd on the weekend, but they are the only side in the top flight to have not won more than one game this season. They may find Spurs in a bullish mood as they look to respond to a loss in the North London derby against Arsenal on Sunday. Read our Tottenham v Southampton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:18 p.m.)
Tottenham lost the North London derby 4-2 against Arsenal last weekend, snapping a three-match winning streak that they were on. That means that Tottenham have lost three of their four matches against the current top four this term. But as positive for this one, they have won all of their games against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. At home this season, Spurs have a W3 D0 L2 record.
In those games they have come up with eight goals, conceding the five. Spurs have made only the one clean sheet. Both teams have scored in 60% of Tottenham’s home games. Spurs have lost just four of their 38 home league games. Spurs have scored the opening goal in three of their five games at home. Spurs/Spurs halftime/full time is at even money odds* (betting odds taken on December 3rd, 2018 at 5:18 pm).
They have been leading at half time in three of their five home games. All but one of their last four games in the league have made it over 3.5 goals. Spurs have hit the back of the net in each of their last four, and half of Tottenham’s league victories this season have been by a margin of two goals. Spurs to win by a two-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (betting odds taken on December 3rd, 2018 at 5:18 pm). Tottenham have won all but one of their last seven home games against Southampton across all competitions
Tottenham won this corresponding fixture 5-2 last season
Spurs are unbeaten in their last four EPL games against the Saints (W3 D1)
Southampton have won just one of their last 12 against Spurs
Both teams have scored in each of the last five meetings
Spurs have won their last two on home soil against the Saints
The Saints picked up a 2-2 draw at home against Manchester United and while that felt like a point gained, it was two lost. They had a 2-0 lead in the first half to try and defend. They couldn’t do it and the club sacked Mark Hughes on Monday after three wins since taking over last season. Southampton are now on a ten-match winless streak of form in the Premier League and are just W1 D6 L7 all season.
Away from St Mary’s the reading isn’t good at W1 D1 L5, their only victory coming at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace. They have faced three of the current top six sides this season and have lost all of them. Southampton have averaged over two goals against per away game this term. A Tottenham 2-0 correct score is at 6/1 odds* (betting odds taken on December 3rd, 2018 at 5:18 pm).
They have taken one point in their last five away games, and the Saints have shipped at least two goals in all but two of their away games this season. Southampton have come up with only the six away goals all season. But despite that, they have been losing at halftime in four of their seven away games. Of the goals which they have conceded on their travels, 69% of them have actually been in the first half of matches, so they are getting themselves into problems early. Only Cardiff and Fulham have earned fewer away points than Southampton
Spurs should have enough to snap back to winning ways immediately. Southampton have a lot of sorting out to do and they should find Spurs a lot harder to deal with than they did Manchester United. Home win to nil.

Three points in this home game would be huge for Southampton. They are out of form through and their relegation concerns were increased with a loss against Fulham last weekend in what was a huge basement battle. Is there any way back for the Saints now? Manchester United make the long trip south looking to shake off another disappointing result of their own having been held to a home draw against Crystal Palace last weekend. Read our Southampton v Manchester United betting tips for more.
Man Utd 5/6
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 27th, 2018 at 4:55 p.m.)
Southampton were dealt a hammer blow of a loss against Fulham last weekend as they lost 3-2 at Craven Cottage. That took them out to a nine-match winless streak of form in the league now. The Saints have failed to win a signal home game this season with a D2 L4 record. Across their six home games this season in the league they have produced only the four goals. They have failed to score in 50% of their home games and it’s hard to see this coming up being a high-scoring affair. Both teams NOT to score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 7.06 pm)
Southampton have scored one goal in their last three home games but they have avoided defeat in their last two at St Mary’s, taking back to back draws against Newcastle and Watford. In their four games against current top-six sides this season, the Saints have lost all of them. They are facing a Manchester United side who are sat in seventh place. The Saints have shipped an average of 1.3 goals per home game so far but looking a positive perspective they have a clean sheet in a third of their home games. Under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 7.06 pm). Southampton have been losing at halftime just once at home this term. They were eight points better off after 13 games of last season’s campaign than they currently are.
Man Utd won this corresponding fixture 1-0 last season
In the last six EPL meetings, Man Utd are W3 D2 L1 against the Saints
Both teams have scored in just one of the last six EPL meetings
The last three league meetings have produced only one goal
The Saints have failed to score in their last four against United in the league
Manchester United are held to a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace last weekend another deflating result for them. That’s one point in their last two league games now. The Red Devils are are W2 D2 L1 in their last five league games so it continues to look hit and miss with them. The positive from their draw with Palace though is that it was their first clean sheet since beating Burnley all the way back on September 2nd in the league. The win at Burnley is their only clean sheet on their travels this season. The Red Devil have been far from prolific in front of goal this season but have scored 12 goals on the road, conceding 13. Manchester United are without a clean sheet in five on the road
86% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals and each of their last five away from Old Trafford have made it over the mark. In just two of their away games this season have Manchester United scored in both halves of a fixture. Just like Southampton are, the Red Devils are eight points worse off than at this stage of last season’s campaign. 62% of the away goals they have conceded have been in the first half of games but they have scored in all seven away games this season. In the correct score market that the shortest priced option is a 1-1 draw at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 7.06 pm)
You can’t look at this game and not see the appeal in a draw. Southampton don’t look capable of pulling out a win but after a poor midweek Champions League effort, Manchester United don’t particularly look a great threat. Draw.

Claudio Ranieri takes charge of Fulham for the first time after having come in to replace Slavisa Jokanovic at Craven Cottage. Can the Italian get some momentum started with the Cottagers who are bottom of the league? A win puts them level on points with the struggling Saints. Read our Fulham v Southampton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 19th, 2018 at 10:48 p.m.)
The Cottagers were beaten 2-0 at Anfield in their last game, although they felt a bit hard done by in that one. Still, it leaves them on a horrendous six-match losing streak in the Premier League. Their form at Craven Cottage this season has seen them go W1 D1 L3. Overall, home and away the Cottagers have produced only two points in their last nine games. They are without a goal in any of their last three. Both teams not to score is at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 4:58 pm)
Across their five home games, this season Fulham have netted six goals and they have gone without a clean sheet in any league fixture so far this term. They have the worst defensive record in the top flight with 31 goals conceded in 12 games. Of the goals that they have come up with at home this season in the EPL, two-thirds of them have been in the first half of matches. As a positive for them, they have outscored Saturday’s opponents Southampton this term. Andre Schurrle has scored two of Fulham’s last three league goals.
Southampton won an FA Cup tie 1-0 at Fulham in January this year
The Saints are on a three-match winning streak against Fulham
Fulham are winless in six games against Southampton
In none of the last three meetings have both teams scored
Three of the last five top-flight meetings have ended in a draw
Southampton’s struggles continued just before the international break as they could only manage a 1-1 home draw against Watford. While it was a point, it means that they have failed to win any of their last eight league games now. The Saints are D3 L1 in their last four games. Away from St Marys Southampton are just W1 D1 L4 for the term, having netted just four goals in their six away games. They have lost three of their last four away games (D1)
Under 2.5 goals is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 4:58 pm). It is hard to see Southampton raising too much of an attacking threat against even the bottom side in the league and against the worst defensive in the top flight. At the back themselves, Southampton have conceded an average of over two goals per away game. Home and away combined Southampton have scored just two goals in their last seven league games
A win for Fulham for Claudio Ranieri’s first game in charge appeals here. They get that boost of a fresh start under a new manager and are facing a side who offer little attacking threat. Fulham to win.
21st November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Southampton’s season got worse last weekend with a loss against Manchester City which just extended their long winless streak in the top flight. It is desperate times for them now and need to turn things around on home soil this weekend. Watford come for a visit after a shock loss out at Newcastle last time out. Read our Southampton v Watford betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 5th, 2018 at 8:54 p.m.)
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 won away at Southampton last season, drawing back at home
Southampton are W2 D3 L1 in their last six EPL fixtures against Watford
The Saints are W2 D1 L2 in their last five home league games against Watford
Both teams have scored in the last four league meetings
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).
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.
8th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Manchester City will be expected to collect more points in their title challenge on the weekend when they play host to Southampton. The Citizens have a 100% home record for the season so far in the top flight and will be keen to see that extended. Southampton are winless in six and starting to look like real strugglers. Read our Manchester City v Southampton betting tips for more.
Man City 1/8
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 31st, 2018 at 10:39 p.m.)
The Citizens showed great title credentials last weekend as they took a 1-0 away win at Tottenham. That leaves them with back to back wins in the top flight. Back at the Etihad, they have won all five of their games and they haven’t been shy in front of goal either. They have produced a total of 18 goals at home this term. That is a tremendous average of 3.6 0 goals per game. Taking that into consideration a Manchester City to win by three-goal margin is at 15/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 3:35 pm).
Their defence has really stepped it up as well because they have banked a clean sheet in each of their last six games in the top flight. Manchester City to win to nil is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 3:35 pm). Overall they have only conceded twice at home so far at the Etihad. Going back to their powerful attack, they have netted in both halves of all of their home games this season.
A Man City/Man City half-time/full-time bet is at 2/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 3:35 pm). They have been winning at the half time break in all but one of their home games this season. Adding weight to the support of that is that the Citizens haven’t conceded a second-half goal at home this term. Strangely enough, even though they are top of the table and have that powerful home record going for them, they were two points better off at this stage of last season’s record-breaking campaign.
Man City won both EPL meetings with Southampton last season by a one-goal margin
The Citizens are on a three-match winning streak against the Saints
City have lost one of their last ten against Southampton in the EPL (W7 D2 L1)
Man City have scored at least two goals in seven of their last nine against Southampton
Southampton are winless in their last seven EPL visits to Man City (D1 L6)
Southampton played out a 0-0 draw with Newcastle last weekend, which leaves the Saints with back to back draws in their current form. Wins are still evading them as they have not taken a victory in any of their last six league games now (D3 L3). The reading gets worse too as they have not scored a goal in any of their last five league outings now. With that in mind and considering this is such a difficult away game for them, both teams not to score is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 3:35 pm).
The Saints have tallied just three away goals all season, while they have conceded seven. That is from five road games from which they have taken a W1 D1 L3 record. They have earned the two clean sheets away from home this season but it is going to take some doing to pull one off in this one. Southampton have faced two of the current top four sides this season and the Saints suffered 3-0 defeats in both of them, which were against Chelsea and Liverpool.
A Manchester City 3-0 correct score option is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 3:35 pm). Southampton have not come up with a goal in the first half of any of their away games this season. Defensively they have conceded 71% of their away goals before the half time break. Southampton have been losing at half time in three of their away games. Only Fulham’s Slavisa Jokanovic and Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho are shorter priced than Saints boss Mark Hughes in the Premier League sack race.
We can only see this being fairly easy for the Citizens on the weekend as they take on a side who are so badly out of form and not scoring goals. Manchester City to win to nil has a lot of appeal and there are some points towards them banking a 3-0 correct score win at the Etihad.
1st November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
This could be a tense clash down on the south coast as both Southampton and Newcastle could use a morale-boosting win. Newcastle fell to the bottom of the Premier League last weekend with a poor home loss against Brighton. Southampton collected a point in their south coast derby against Bournemouth to keep themselves just away from the drop zone. Read our Southampton v Newcastle betting tips for more.
Southampton even money
Newcastle 11/4* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 25th, 2018 at 4:36 p.m.)
Southampton were on a three-match losing streak in the Premier League ahead of their game against south coast rivals Bournemouth last weekend. The Saints collected a point in a 0-0 draw to at least stop the losing rot. Southampton are without a win in their last five games and have collected on a W1 D3 L5 record this season in the top flight. They are still looking for their first home win of the season as well, with just two points earned so far on home soil.
Southampton have scored in just half of their home games and overall home and away are without a league goal in their last four fixtures. Under 1.5 goals is at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 6:30 pm) and that looks a strong proposition for Southampton v Newcastle betting tips. Southampton have produced just the three goals overall at home this season and two of those were in one game, a 2-2 draw with Brighton.
Given the lack of scoring from the two sides here, both teams not to score is at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 6:30 pm). The Saints are on a terrible run of home form in the top flight really because they have only taken one victory in their last fifteen home fixtures. Southampton have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three at St Marys. Little surprise really that boss Mark Hughes is under increasing pressure now.
Newcastle took a W1 D1 record in last season’s Premier League meetings
Newcastle have scored at least two goals in three of their last four against the Saints
Southampton are unbeaten in five at home against the Magpies (W4D1)
The last seven games between them have each gone over 2.5 goals
Southampton are W3 D2 L1 in their last six against Newcastle
Southampton have scored thirteen goals in their last four at home against Newcastle
The Magpies have earned one league point from their last seven games now and that was after a confidence-crushing 1-0 home loss against Brighton last weekend. That was just a chance for them to turn the corner and they missed it. They don’t have a home point so far this season and out on the road they are D2 L2. Newcastle have scored in just one of their last four league games and both of the points which they have earned this season were in 0-0 draws at Cardiff and Crystal Palace.
A 0-0 correct score is at 7/1 odds, but shorter at the head of the market is a Southampton 1-0 option at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 6:30 pm). Newcastle have produced just three away goals all season, while they have conceded five. All three of Newcastle’s away goals this season have been in the first half hour of games. The half time draw option is at even money * (betting odds taken on October 24th, 2018 at 6:30 pm).
That’s well worth a look the Magpies haven’t been behind at half-time in an away game so far. All but one of the away goals that Newcastle have conceded this season have been after the half time break. Overall they have failed to win any of their last seven league away games (D2 L5) and they have collected a win in just one of their last twelve away from St James’ Park (D4 L7). They are now ten points worse off than they were after nine games of last seasons’ top-flight campaign.
Newcastle’s home loss against Brighton last weekend felt like a bit of a nail in their Premier League coffin even this early in the season. Southampton have to grasp this chance at a rare and precious three points for themselves. Home win.
26th October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Cherries return to league action sat in sixth place in the league and won three of their four games before the international break. So it’s all smiles at the Vitality and they will be expecting more out of this south coast derby. Southampton are once again in a mess having lost their last three games. Read our Bournemouth v Southampton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:16 p.m.)
It has been a great season from Bournemouth so far with a W5 D1 L2 record on the board. That has been enough to see them start up again after the international break in sixth place in the table. This could be a good home game for them too as they face up to their south coast rivals who are out of form. The Cherries have won back to back games so are looking for their third straight fixture in a row.
Bournemouth have not put on a great defensive show this season but are appealing at 11/4 to win to nil* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 5:41 pm). They are undefeated at home this season with a tremendously positive W3 D1 record on the board.
They have scored at least two goals in each of their league home games as well. So in Bournemouth v Southampton betting tips a 2-0 correct score for the home side looks a decent proposition at 10/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm).
Of the ten home goals that they have come up with this season, four of them have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. They have yet to concede a single goal in the first half of any home game this term. A Bournemouth half time win should, therefore, have some decent appeal.
The Saints have been having a tough time of things again this season and pressure is on boss Mark Hughes for sure. They have just the one victory this season and they head back into action on a three-match losing streak. The reading in that gets worse because they failed to score in any of those three losses.
Both teams not to score is at 11/10 odds for Bournemouth v Southampton predictions* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Southampton have posted a W1 L3 record this season on their travels, having lost their last two (again without scoring) at Liverpool and the newly promoted Wolves.
They have shipped at least two goals in each of their three away defeats this season and although they avoided defeat against the Cherries last term they may have difficulties in doing so again. Southampton have scored just six goals this season, the joint third-lowest tally in the top flight so far.
Southampton collected four points from their two games against Bournemouth last season. In the six previous Premier League meetings between the two south coast sides, Southampton are W3 D2 L1 against the Cherries. Bournemouth are W1 D1 L1 in their three home games against Southampton. Two of the six Premier League meetings made it over 2.5 goals.
The Cherries are more likely to acquit themselves better to the task at hand and you can see the Saints just turning up and trying to contain. Bournemouth are bold enough in attack to break their rivals. Home win.
17th October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Saints need to dig deep to try and turn the corner as they are in pretty bad shape with just the one win on the board this season. They go into this one after back to back defeats in this one and this is a tough game for them. Chelsea have dropped points in their last two league games in back to back draws. Read our Southampton v Chelsea betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 3rd, 2018 at 9:14 p.m.)
The Saints are having a really rough time of things and have failed to win in three league outings now. They have suffered back to back defeats against Liverpool and Wolves and Southampton failed to hit the back of the net in either of those. Overall this season Mark Hughes has seen his troops win just once in a W1 D2 L4 record.
Their home form stands at D2 L1. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games which leaves them vulnerable for the visit of the powerful Chelsea attack. Both teams to NOT score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 5:01 pm)
After their struggles last season, Southampton are actually three points worse off than they were at this stage last term. So there is a decline from them. They have produced only the six league goals this season and just four teams have come up with fewer than that, three of those are sat in the relegation zone.
Surprisingly though, despite their lack of output, the Saints have had 14.6 shots per game on average this season so far in the Premier League, the fifth best. In context, Spurs average less than 14 per game but have scored 14. Southampton have concede an average of 13.6 shots per game against them this season
The Blues have been in great form this season in the top flight and will be defending their unbeaten start under Mauricio Sarri. The Blues have a W5 D2 record for the season, the draws have happened in their last two games against West Ham and Liverpool. The Blues are W2 D1 away from home this season in the league.
Their only failure to win away from home was in a 0-0 draw at West Ham in their last road game. Chelsea have two clean sheets in three away games. Chelsea to win to nil at 7/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 5:01 pm).
Eden Hazard has been on another level this season and he is at 15/4 odds in the first goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 5:01 pm). The Blues have conceded only the one away goal all season and that was in the second half of the match.
For your Southampton v Chelsea betting tips it may be worth looking at a Chelsea/Chelsea half-time/full-time option to push for some extra odds. They have been level at 0-0 in two of their three away games, but are facing a relatively weak Southampton side here.
There was back to back wins for Chelsea over Southampton last season and both of those successes were by a one-goal margin. The Blues are on a six-match winning streak against Southampton in all competitions. Both teams have scored in six of the last eight Premier League meetings.
Chelsea have looked so sharp and full of attacking intent that it is hard to see the Southampton defence holding out against them. Even though they are out on the road, this may be just about as routine as it gets for the Blues. Away win.

Wolves have done really well to hold their own up in the top flight and they collected a good point at Old Trafford against Manchester United last weekend. They will be looking for three home points this weekend as they play host to Southampton. The Saints are still stuck with the just the one win this season. Read our Wolves v Southampton betting tips for more.

Wolves have only been beaten once this season in the top flight and they are unbeaten in their last four games played (W2 D2). So they have done very well and their performance at Old Trafford last weekend in picking up a 1-1 draw with Manchester United proved that. They were good value for that tie as well. Really the only thing missing from their season would be a higher goal-output as they have only managed to score more than one goal in a game on one occasion this season.
Wolves have scored exactly one goal in each of their last four games and a Wolves 1-0 correct score is at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.). This has to be a good chance for them to improve their home form which stands at W1 D2 so far this term, beating Burnley and holding Everton and Manchester City to draws. Raul Jimenez has scored both of his goals this season on home soil and is the leading option in the anytime goalscorer market for them. Five of the six league goals they have scored have been in the second half of games.
The Saints are stuck on just the one win for the season which was out at Crystal Palace on September 1st. They suffered a 3-0 loss at Liverpool last weekend, which is no embarrassment and they were really never in the game. Their away form is W1 L2 for the term and their defeat at Anfield snapped a four-match scoring streak that they were on, which was a pretty decent return for them as they don’t look staked with a lot of goalscoring power.
They are facing a good Wolves side here and both teams not to score takes our fancy for Wolve v Southampton betting tips. That can be backed at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.). Southampton have won just two of their last ten away games in the Premier League (D3 L5) so haven’t been good travellers at all. As a boost, they will get their top scorer Danny Ings back after missing last weekend’s game at Liverpool against his parent club.
The last time these two met ended in Wolves getting a win over the Saints in the EFL Cup. Wolves are actually on a three-match winning streak against Southampton and they are undefeated in their last five games against them in all competitions. This will be their first league meeting since the 2008/09 Championship.
Wolves have shown enough that they can get a win on the board in this one and we are going to support the home win cropping up. The Saints will get Danny Ings back but that’s unlikely to be enough to stop a Wolves win.
