Southampton v Tottenham Prediction & Betting Tips, 21st January 2018

Southampton

Southampton v Tottenham Premier League Preview, 21st January 4.00pm

The Saints are still just above the drop zone but it has been a while since they tasted what a winning feeling feels like. They blew a two-goal lead to end up drawing with Watford last weekend and it’s pretty frustrating for them. Spurs have ramped up their form again and destroyed Everton last weekend. Tottenham are 4/6 at William Hill to take the away win, with the draw at 14/5 and Southampton at 4/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.)

Southampton News and Form

The Saints are now winless in their last ten fixtures in the top flight and have won just one of their last fourteen. It is has been a miserable run of form from them and even after playing themselves into a great position last weekend, going 2-0 up at Watford they could only manage a draw at the end of the day. They are not a high scoring side and there have been some really poor defensive performances from them recently as well as they have conceded nine goals in their last four games played. Five of those were in their heavy Boxing Day defeat out at Spurs. Southampton are just W3 D4 L5 on the road this season and they have gone just D2 L2 in their last four there, scoring just the four goals as well. They have scored just the fourteen goals in their twelve home games while they have conceded at a rate of 1.4 per home game. Charlie Austin is their top scorer at home this season with five of his six league goals this term coming at St Mary’s. Both teams to score in this one with William Hill is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken on January 17th, 2018 at 10:08 p.m.) given what happened between them recently.

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs are ticking over in great form again now with thirteen points picked up from their last five league games. They have scored at least two goals in six of their last eight league outings and they have won their last two away games, both to nil as well in victories over Burnley and Swansea. Overall this season Spurs have posted a W6 D1 L4 record on their top-flight travels but they have only collected the two wins in their last seven road fixtures. But their recent upswing suggests that they are fully back in business. Harry Kane has eight league goals in his last five appearances and he naturally is the William Hill First Goalscorer favourite for the match. Tottenham have averaged 1.8 goals per game on their travels this season while they have collected a clean sheet in 45% of their away games. 55% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals so that’s probably a decent option to look at for this one. Of the six away wins they have recorded this season only one of them have been by a one-goal margin.

Southampton v Tottenham Head to Head

Spurs romped to a 5-2 win over Southampton back on Boxing Day and that was their third Premier League win in a row over the Saints. Both teams have actually scored in each of the last four meetings so there is a decent trend running there. Southampton have won just one of their last eleven Premier League fixtures against Tottenham. The Saints have lost their last two at home against the Lilywhites are winless in their last five there against Tottenham.

Who will win – Southampton v Tottenham Predictions

Tottenham should be fairly comfortable in this one. They are back in form again while Southampton just cannot get anything going and after their recent heavy defeat against the Lilywhites, you would expect more of the same in this one. Spurs to win by a two-goal margin looks value.

Watford v Southampton Prediction & Betting Tips, 13th January 2018

Watford

Watford v Southampton Premier League Preview, 13th January 3.00pm

Watford are starting to slip back towards the extremely tight bottom half of the Premier league table with six losses in their last seven league games. They are still scoring but they can’t keep the ball out of their own net. Southampton though starts the weekend just above the drop zone after a long winless streak and a lack of serious attacking threat. Watford are 7/5 for the win at William Hill with Southampton at 19/10 and the draw at 9/4 * (Betting Odds were taken January 9th, 2018 at 10.16pm)

Watford News and Form

The season really has taken a poor turn for Watford who have gone W1 D1 L7 in their last nine league outings. It has been disappointment after disappointment for them after such a bright start to the season. They haven’t kept a clean sheet since a 3-0 win at Newcastle back on November 25th. At home, the Hornets are W3 D3 L5 for the season and they are W2 D2 L2 in their last six at Vicarage Road. They have conceded eleven goals in their last four home games which suggest vulnerabilities and both teams to score at William Hill returns a price of 7/10* (Betting Odds were taken January 10th, 2018 at 8.39pm). Watford have averaged just around 1.3 goals per home game this season which isn’t great, especially when you have conceded at a rate of 2.09 per home game. 64% of their home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals though and this one is 19/20 to do so at William Hill* (Betting Odds were taken January 10th, 2018 at 8.47pm), even though it is Southampton making the visit and they are not a prolific side. The top scorer for Watford at Vicarage Road is Abdoulaye Doucoure with three goals.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints are now perilously close to the Premier League drop zone after a run of nine games without a win in the top flight. They are just not packing anywhere near enough of a punch at the moment and away from home, they have won just the once this season so it would be hard to back them. They are just W1 D4 L5 on their travels this term and have lost two of their last three. The Saints have failed to score in two of their last three away games as well and there could be a bit of appeal on Watford to win to nil at William Hill for the fixture. The Saints have only managed the seven away goals this season and they have failed to score in four of their ten road trips this term. They haven’t been watertight either because they have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per game away from St Marys. Of the goals that they have managed on the road this season 71% of them have appeared in the second half of matches which may throw some weight at a half-time draw. Southampton have scored first in just two of their road games this season and they could find themselves in the drop zone this weekend.

Watford v Southampton Head to Head

Last season Southampton won this corresponding fixture 4-3 but they lost 2-0 at home against the Hornets earlier this season. The Saints are slightly ahead with a W2 D2 L1 record in the five previous Premier League clashes with Watford. Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings and Watford are actually winless in their last four on home soil against the Saints.

Who will win – Watford v Southampton Predictions

Not the easiest game to call because Watford just haven’t been at the races and convincing enough. But then again the Saints have looked pretty well below par this season and are having even bigger struggles. Home advantage may swing it, so roll with the Hornets.

Southampton v Crystal Palace Premier League Preview, 2nd January 7.45pm

Southampton

Southampton v Crystal Palace Premier League – 2nd January 7.45pm

The Saints have had their struggles on home soil this season and will be out looking to try and snap a three match winless streak of form that they are on at St Mary’s when they face Palace on Monday. Palace have been battening down the hatches out on the road to carry a four match unbeaten streak of form away from home at the moment. Southampton are 10/11 to take the home win with the draw at 12/5 and Crystal Palace at 3/1.

Southampton News and Form

There have been just the three clean sheets for Southampton at St Mary’s this season in the Premier League and they have failed to win any of their last three there going into this (D2 L1). The two draws in that sequence were both 1-1 draws against Arsenal and Huddersfield and in the Coral correct score market, a 1-1 draw is a price of 11/2, making it the shortest priced option in the market. There have been 13 home goals from the Saints this season, which is average at best but they are on a four match scoring streak of form at St Mary’s in the top flight. Both teams to score in the game has to be a decent proposition because the Saints have also conceded at least one goal in each of their last five league home games. With just 36% for their games at St Mary’s going over 2.5 goals, then that 1-1 correct score at Coral has a decent amount of appeal really. Southampton have failed to score in three of their eleven home games while they have taken a clean sheet in just two of them. They go into the game on the back of an away draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United on the weekend.

Crystal Palace News and Form

Palace were the ones who stopped Man City’s winning streak as they held out for a 0-0 draw against the Citizens at Selhurst Park over the weekend. They missed a penalty at the end of the match too, missing a great chance for three points. The Eagles are unbeaten in four away games in the top flight and are going well. They are only W1 D3 in that four match stretch though and their last road game saw them play out a 1-1 draw at the struggling Swansea. Palace really mount good attacking threats in games, but most of it isn’t sustained. Wilfried Zaha is bang on top of his game at the moment and is 11/4 value in the Coral anytime goalscorer market for this one. The Eagles are only W1 D3 L6 for the season away from Selhurst Park but are on the up on the road. There have been just the four away goals all season from them, but those four have come in their last two away games. Only 30% of their away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals and therefore under 2.5 goals at Coral looks a decent option. There has been just the one clean sheet for them on the road.

Southampton v Crystal Palace Head to Head

Southampton took a 1-0 win at Selhurst Park back September and that has left them with back to back league wins over the Eagles. Southampton have won their last three matches against Crystal Palace at home in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in each of these. The Saints have won all four of their previous Premier League home games against Crystal Palace.

Who will win – Southampton v Crystal Palace Predictions

The draw will be running with great appeal for the fixture here because the Eagles have been drawing a lot out on the road lately and Southampton are not convincing anyone that they can dig things out and produce a win. The 1-1 draw looks good.

Manchester United v Southampton Prediction & Betting Tips, 30th December 2017

Manchester United

Manchester United v Southampton Premier League Preview, 30th December 5.30pm

The Saints haven’t looked as if they are going to pull themselves out of their mire anytime soon as their long winless streak continued. This isn’t going to be an easy trip up to Old Trafford for them either on the weekend, even though Manchester United were really rattled there by Burnley on Boxing Day. Manchester United are 2/5 to take the win at home with the draw at 15/4 and Southampton at 7/1.

Manchester United News and Form

The Red Devils dodged a bullet on Boxing Day as they found themselves 2-0 down at half time against Burnley at Old Trafford. A brace from Jesse Lingard turned things around for them in the second half but they could only manage a point. That leaves them at W1 D1 L1 in their last three league outings at home now and moves them to a W8 D1 L1 record overall at Old Trafford this season. The lack of clean sheets that they have collected lately will be a bit of a concern as they have only managed one in their last seven league matches now and that’s two goals exactly they have conceded in their last two matches. Despite their lack of clean sheets, Manchester United to win to nil at Coral is going to be a decent option as they face the low-scoring Saints. Lingard has hit a bit of a purple patch for scoring and is going to be worth looking at in the anytime goalscorer market. The Red Devils do carry the third best offence and third best defence at the moment and in the correct score market, a Manchester United 2-0 option is a 6/1 price.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints extended their winless streak to seven games on the bounce now (D3 L4) and their away form makes for some miserable reading. The Saints have gone just W1 D3 L5 on the road this season and they have collected just the one point in their last five road games. On their travels this season they have only managed to net seven times while they have conceded at a rate of 1.7 per game. Only two of their away goals have been scored in the first half of matches. It has been a really poor season overall from them and on Boxing Day they went to Wembley to face Spurs and lost 5-2 and never looked like matching up against the Lilywhites at all. Three of their last six games have ended in a 1-1 draw and at the moment that looks as if it would be the best that they could get out of this tough away fixture. Overall in their last eleven games home and away in the Premier League, the Saints have failed to keep a single clean sheet. Both teams not to score at Coral is probably going to be the value option here given Southampton’s poor form and this being a busy period.

Manchester United v Southampton Head to Head

The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last three league games against the Saints now in the league, keeping a clean sheet in each of those games (W2 D1). They have only won one of their last four at Old Trafford against Southampton though in a W1 D1 L2 record. Each of the last four league meetings have gone under 2.5 goals.

Who will win – Manchester United v Southampton Predictions

The Red Devils can land an efficient home win in this one and you wouldn’t expect them to do anything else. There is every chance that they can blank the Saints so back the home side to win to nil.

Tottenham v Southampton Prediction & Betting Tips, 26th December 2017

Tottenham

Tottenham v Southampton Premier League Preview, 26th December 3.00pm

The Lilywhites have been carrying some decent home form in the league this season and are unbeaten in their last eight there. So they will fancy their chances on Boxing Day against the Saints who have been struggling all season away from home. Southampton have managed only the one away win all season and will go as underdogs at Wembley. Spurs are 2/5 odds on at Betfair to win this with the draw at 18/5 and Southampton are a big 7/1 price.

Tottenham News and Form

Tottenham really can’t afford to take their foot off the gas on home soil at all. They are unbeaten in their last eight games there and they have won their last two back to back at Wembley and because of their poor away form, they need their home form to continue. They have some work to do to get back in the picture for a top four finish at the moment. Spurs have returned 16 goals in their nine games at Wembley this season and defensively they have been very sound with just the six goals conceded. That’s clean sheets in 44% of their home fixtures and Spurs to win to nil in this has to be a great option. 69% of Tottenham’s home goals have come the second half of matches this season and there is pretty much only one man you look to for Tottenham goals and that is Harry Kane. Of his league goal haul this season, five of them have come at home and goes as the First Goal Scorer outright favourite.

Southampton News and Form

The struggles for the Saints have continued pretty badly, particularly on the road. They have only won the one away game all season with a very poor W1 D3 L4 return and they have collected just the one point from their last four road games as well. The Saints have managed only the five away goals in their eight road games so far, while they haven’t been defensively terrible having conceded at an average of 1.25 goals per away game, they just don’t have the attacking threat to get themselves into games. The Saints haven’t managed to score more than one goal in any away game this term. They have only opened the scoring in two of their eight road games so far and this game has every chance of going under 2.5 goals. But the Saints may struggle for any returns to take back to the south coast with them.

Tottenham v Southampton Head to Head

Spurs won both league meetings against Southampton last season and they have lost just one of their last ten Premier League games against the Saints, winning eight of those, so they are well up in the head to head. Six of the last eight games between them incidentally have gone over 2.5 goals.

Who will win – Tottenham v Southampton Predictions

Tottenham should have enough about them to get a home win on the board in this one. Southampton aren’t likely going to rattle them too much and Spurs to win to nil should have a decent amount of appeal.

Southampton v Huddersfield Prediction & Betting Tips, 23rd December 2017

Southampton

Southampton v Huddersfield Premier League Preview, 23rd December 3.00pm

The Saints continue to struggle and they have now gone winless in their last five league matches now after a loss against Chelsea on the weekend. Their lack of goals is severely hampering any progress that they could be enjoying and they face a Huddersfield side who are three points above them in the table. The Terriers gave themselves a massive boost last weekend with a huge win at Watford. Can they do the same at St Marys? Southampton are 11/20 to make the win, with the draw at 11/4 and Huddersfield area 5/1 to pick up an away win.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints have managed only the one win in their last nine league games now and just can’t get any momentum going. They go into this game on the back to defeats against Leicester and Chelsea and at home, they are just W1 D1 L2 in their last four at St Mary’s. Only once in their last ten games have Southampton managed more than one goal in a game. Under 2.5 goals at BetVictor has to have big appeal for this fixture. Southampton are W3 D3 L3 at home this season so far and they have been losing at half time in four of their ten home fixtures, winning at the break in just two of them. The Saints have produced twelve goals in ten home games and only 40% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. They have opened the scoring in just 6 of their 18 games this season. Charlie Austin has at least been showing a bit of form from them and he is a price of 11/10 in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. Both teams not to score at BetVictor looks the most reasonable way to swing in this one.

Huddersfield News and Form

The Terriers have picked up a couple of wins in their last three league games, beating Brighton at home and then landing a big 4-1 away win at Watford last weekend, which few would have seen coming. That was a big three points for them and a big away result because it snapped a five match losing streak and a seven match winless streak that they were on away from home. They have failed to score in their seven previous away games before that big win at Vicarage Road. It means that the Terriers have scored in each of their last three league games now for the first time this season. So their overall away form isn’t great by any standards and they have only netted the seven goals on their travels, while they have conceded an average of over two goals per game on the road as well, but those recent positives actually makes them a decent proposition to get something out of this game. Laurent Depoitre is their top scorer this season and he is an 11/4 anytime goalscorer option for them. A Huddersfield-Draw Double Chance at BetVictor isn’t without its appeal.

Southampton v Huddersfield Head to Head

There was something of a predictable 0-0 draw earlier in the season between the two of these and things are even between these in the last five meetings with two wins each and a draw. Granted this season’s Premier League meeting was the first time that they had met since the 2010/11 League One season. Four of the last five meetings though have ended in a home win.

Who will win – Southampton v Huddersfield Predictions

Huddersfield may be worth a little flutter on a double chance in this one. Recent wins over Brighton and Watford will have given them confidence, whereas the Saints just can find that winning touch through a lack of clinical finishing and they may struggle to break down the Terriers.

Chelsea v Southampton Prediction & Betting Tips, 16th December 2017

Chelsea

Chelsea v Southampton Premier League Preview, 16th December 3.00pm

The Blues romped to a positive win out at Huddersfield in midweek to get over their shock loss at West Ham last weekend. They get themselves back on home soil where their form has been good lately and they are looking for their fifth straight victory there. The Saints have produced very little out on the road this season and may struggle to get themselves into this game which Chelsea are 1/3 odds on favourites at Ladbrokes for the win, with the draw at 4/1 and Southampton at 8/1

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues collected a good win out at Huddersfield in midweek to immediately return to winning ways after their slip up at West Ham last weekend. The Blues have won their last four league outings at Stamford Bridge and two of their last three have been with a clean sheet. Chelsea to win to nil at Ladbrokes is a price of 11/10 and that will probably be heavily backed as a good option for the fixture. Overall this season at the Bridge, Chelsea have recorded a W5 D1 L2 record and they have scored at least three goals in half of their last six matches. Because the Saints won’t be expected to really turn up and produce a great attacking threat then that should leave strong options in the correct score market. A Chelsea 2-0 correct score option is a 6/1 price while a 1-0 victory for them comes in at 6/1. Eden Hazard is a good 10/11 anytime goalscorer option for the fixture with Alvaro Morata still a doubt. Only 38% of Chelsea ‘s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals and they have kept a clean sheet in four of their last eight and they have been losing at half time in just one of their matches at Stamford Bridge.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints have been poor travellers this season with only a W1 D3 L3 record having been posted on their travels so far. They have gone winless in their last five games away from St Marys now in a D2 L3 record. A huge part of their problems this season has been putting the ball in the back of the net and they have only managed the five goals on their travels this term having failed to score in two for their seven road fixtures. They haven’t been defensively too bad though this season out on their travels as they have only shipped the nine goals which isn’t terrible and they may be able to keep the score down to offer some value on under 2.5 goals turning up in the match. Only 43% of Southampton’s away games this season have gone over the goal line. Southampton have opened the scoring in just six of their sixteen league games this season and they have now conceded in each of their last eight league fixtures. Charlie Austin is their shortest priced anytime goalscorer option at 13/5 and after more struggles at home against Leicester in midweek, this is a tough road trip for them.

Chelsea v Southampton Head to Head

Chelsea have a three match winning streak going against Southampton the league and they have lost just one of their last eight against them (W5 D3 L1). That lone defeat did happen at the Bridge back in 2015. The Blues have lost only one of their last eight on home soil against Southampton so they do have the head to head form.

Who will win – Chelsea v Southampton Predictions

Chelsea looked much better in midweek against a toothless Huddersfield and things may go the same way for them against the low-scoring Saints. Chelsea have won their last four at the Bridge and while they may have to show patience, they can sneak a low scoring victory in the match, probably to nil as well.

Southampton v Leicester Prediction & Betting Tips, 13th December 2017

Southampton

Southampton v Leicester Premier League Preview, 13th December 7.45pm

The Saints will have been happy with their draw on the weekend at home against Arsenal and that means that Man City are the only side to beat them in their last four games in the top flight. Leicester continued their impressive climb up the table as they landed their third consecutive win with a victory out at Newcastle and they should be full of confidence for their trip down south. Southampton are 21/20 to take the win, with the draw at 12/5 and Leicester are 13/5 to land an away win.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints earned themselves a decent point at home against Arsenal on the weekend and will look to follow that up with at least another point as the Foxes come for a visit. Southampton are W3 D3 L3 on home soil now in the league having lost only one of their last five at St Mary’s. They don’t play a great deal of adventurous stuff and only 33% of their home fixtures so far have gone over 2.5 goals so you are likely going to start by looking under the goal line at Betfair for this one, especially with tiredness perhaps a factor after the weekend. Even though they like to play a tight game, the Saints have conceded at least one goal in each of their last seven games and have shipped in 78% of their home fixtures this season, while they have failed to hit the back of the net in 44% of their home games. 64% of the goals that they have mustered up at St Mary’s this season have come in the second half of matches. Charlie Austin is their top scorer this season with five goals and four of those have been at home. He has four goals in his last four games and he is a 7/4 anytime goalscorer option.

Leicester News and Form

That is three wins in a row now for Leicester who improved their form further still. That is only one loss in their last ten league outings now and they are ticking along very well. They sealed a 3-2 win at Newcastle on the weekend thanks to the Magpies scoring an own goal four minutes from time for them. Leicester are still giving up goals then and both teams to score at Betfair is probably worth a look in this one. The Foxes have only the one clean sheet in their last six league outings. They only have one on the road all season long as well. Away from home Leicester have gone W2 D4 L2 and they are unbeaten in their last six on their travels so are likely to be good enough for at least a point. Jamie Vardy is a 13/8 option to score in this one while Demarai Gray at 7/2 is worth a look as he has scored in his last two league outings. The half time draw with Betfair has stacks of appeal for the fixture as the Foxes have been level at the break in seven of their eight road games this season. In the correct score market, the 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option.

Southampton v Leicester Head to Head

The Saints collected four points from their two games against the Foxes last season. But the Premier League head to head between them, which have been six matches are pretty even with there having been two wins each and two draws. Both teams have scored in just one of those six previous Premier League clashes.

Who will win – Southampton v Leicester Predictions

Leicester are finding the goals at the moment and are playing with enough confidence to go and find a way to win this. The Foxes have the clear edge in goal scoring ability out of the two and they are worth a flutter against a somewhat limited Saints.

Southampton v Arsenal Prediction & Betting Tips, 10th December 2017

Southampton

Southampton v Arsenal Premier League Preview, 10th December 12.00pm

The Saints have not had the greatest of seasons and they have already lost some big games against sides from the top four. This will be another serious test for them on home soil, but they are facing an Arsenal side which hasn’t particularly done all that well out on the road this season, having only collected two wins in seven road games. Can the Gunners bounce back after their big home loss against Manchester United last weekend? The Gunners are 10/11 outright favourites to win the game, with the draw at 12/5 and Southampton at 3/1.

Southampton News and Form

The Saints have claimed only the one win in their last six league games now, that winning coming on home soil against Everton recently. Otherwise it has been a bit of a disappointing return from the really. Overall they are W3 D2 L3 on home soil this season in the top flight and have lost just one of their last four there. Charlie Austin has three goals in his last two games for the club and goes at 13/8 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Saints have not been that prolific in front of goal this season at all and have returned just the ten on home soil and only 38% of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals this season. That does suggests that they could frustrate Arsenal and the Saints have been drawing at half time in half of their home games this season. Three of the four wins that they have managed to record this season in the top flight have all been by a one goal margin only. In their other games against top six sides this reason, they lost 1-0 at home against Man Utd, lost 2-1 at home against Man City and suffered a 3-0 defeat out at Liverpool. So they have not been able to stand their ground against the better sides in the league. It may be worth looking under 2.5 goals with William Hill for the future. It’s questionable as to whether or not Southampton will be able to raise enough going forward t trouble the Gunners and they only have one clean sheet in ten now.

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal have had their struggles on the road this season in the top flight without question and they have only returned a poor W2 D1 L4 record on their travels. They won their last road fixture as they earned a dramatic late win out at Burnley. They have been playing well lately even though they were beaten 3-1 at home last weekend by Manchester United. Arsenal have scored in each of their last ten Premier League games so there is a reasonable shot of them getting something on the board. An Arsenal 1-0 correct score at William Hill returns a price of 17/2 and only the 1-1 draw at 6/1 is a shorter price than that is. Alexandre Lacazette got their consolation against Man Utd last weekend and he is joint 6/5 anytime goalscorer favorite alongside Alexis Sanchez with Olivier Giroud at 6/4. The Gunners have been drawing at half time in four of their seven away games, so again the half time draw could offer some good value. The Gunners have averaged just over a goal per game on their travels so this may not be a high scoring affair.

Southampton v Arsenal Head to Head

These two met five times last season across league and cup games, with Arsenal winning both Premier League meetings and their FA Cup clash, while the Saints took a win over the Gunners in the FA Cup. Both teams have scored in just one of the last eight meetings between these two in all competitions. Southampton have only lost one of their last six home games in the league against the Gunners (W2 D3 L1).

Who will win – Southampton v Arsenal Predictions

The draw could have appeal in this one as Arsenal really haven’t proven themselves out on the road this season. They have done well at home of course, but they may find the Saints just a little bit too stubborn on the day to get the better of, so the draw looks a good option to roll with.

Southampton

Bournemouth v Southampton Premier League Preview, 3rd December 1.30pm

A south coast derby is on the way on Sunday lunchtime and there is only the one point separating the two of them in the league. Southampton are two points ahead of the Cherries but it is the Cherries who have had a little more success over their most recent respective games in the top flight. Can they go and give themselves a boost on home soil to claw their way up the table and above the Saints? Southampton are 6/4 to pick up the away win at the Vitality with Bournemouth 9/5 and the Draw trading at 23/10.

Bournemouth News and Form

Given the improvement in their recent form, the Cherries will have been disappointed to have lost at home against Burnley in midweek, suffering a 2-1 defeat. That was a bit of a blow for them really and it leaves them with home form of W2 D1 L4 this season. They have returned just the twelve goals now in their fourteen league fixtures this season and that lack of scoring isn’t helping them out at all. This would be an important win for them because it would really see them climb up the table and get ahead of the Saints. Boss Eddie Howe will naturally been wanting them to come out and produce a much stronger performance than they managed in midweek. This is likely to be a low scoring affair and under 2.5 goals at Betfair should be a decent way to swing for this fixture. In the correct score market, the shortest priced option is the 1-1 draw at 11/2 with a 1-0 win for the Cherries coming in at a price of 8/1. Top scorer for the Cherries this season is Callum Wilson with his three goals and he is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option for this one. Only three sides have scored fewer goals than the Cherries have managed in the top flight this season. Given that this is a derby day, then the Cherries will probably be way more pumped up than they were in midweek

Southampton News and Form

Southampton are not a side in form with three defeats in their last four league games (W1) and out on the road this term there have been notable struggles for them. They have won just once on their travels this season and in total have managed just the four goals away from St Marys. So Bournemouth to win to nil at Betfair may have some decent appeal. Backing up this being a low scoring game, five of the last eight meetings between Bournemouth & Southampton have produced Under 2.5 Total Goals. The Saints have failed to win any of their last four on the road (D1 L3) as well this season but haven’t been beaten heavily. Defensively they haven’t been terrible as they have conceded only the eight goals in seven away games and they looked set for a point at the Etihad against Man City in midweek before Raheem Sterling popped up with a 96th minute winner for the Citizens. Southampton have scored first in just five games in the top flight this season and Charlie Austin is the 2/1 anytime goalscorer market favourite for the match. They are going to have a game on their hands at the Vitality Stadium and frankly, Southampton’s away form hasn’t been strong enough to suggest that they can land a win.

Bournemouth v Southampton Head to Head

Both teams have failed to score in five of the last seven clashes between these two south coast rivals. So there’s every reason to expect this to be low scoring. Southampton won this fixture 3-1 last season and followed it up with a 0-0 home soil. The Saints have lost just one of the four previous Premier League clashes between them now (W2 D1 L1) and three of the last four, both teams have failed to score in.

Who will win – Bournemouth v Southampton Predictions

Bournemouth can’t do enough in this one to get a win on the board. They need all the points that they can get on home soil and with the Saints struggling for goals by and large this season, the Cherries can just pick them off by nothing more than a one goal margin.
