BETTING PREVIEW: SOUTHAMPTON

6 January 2017

Tips for this weekend's game, brought to you by Coral

CITY welcome Premier League Southampton in the FA Cup. Let’s see where we can cash-in with official partner Coral…

Over 2.5 Goals has been the ‘go to’ for much of this season and Southampton’s last four have all gone Over, so the Evens on offer looks reasonable.

But there are better prices to be had elsewhere…

Southampton start 23/20 favourites but have lost their last three – conceding nine goals in the process – and have the first-leg of the EFL Cup semi-final on Wednesday, so might leave a few big-hitters out.

You’ll get 9/4 for a second consecutive Home Win, or an even more appealing 9/2 for the Norwich Win & Over 2.5 Goals.

But the pick looks to be Norwich Win & Both Teams to Score at 11/2. A Southampton goal would mean a Norwich win would have to take the match over the 2.5 goal line anyway, so this is the smart move.

Following two clean sheets in a row – for only the second time this season – you might want to speculate on the Win To Nil. Sensible stakes are recommended but you’ll get a decent 19/4 return.

Taking that a step further, the 1-0 and 2-0 options are available at 17/2 and 16/1 respectively.

There are also some big prices on offer in the Goalscorer markets. Naturally Nelson Oliveira’s seven in seven makes him the pick, at 13/2 to Score First and 15/8 Anytime. You’ll also get 3/1 for Oliveira to be the First Home Goalscorer.
