Southampton vs West Brom: Top free betting tips
Southampton entertain West Bromwich Albion in Round 16 of the EFL Championship on Saturday, 11 November. The Saints enter this game from the fourth position while the Baggies are just one point behind in fifth place.
Match result prediction: Southampton to win
West Bromwich Albion has registered three consecutive victories in the EFL Championship before this game. Southampton have also gone undefeated in their last seven league outings while winning five of them. But the Saints will be much more confident over the home advantage as they have defeated West Brom in three of the last four H2Hs at St Mary’s Stadium. Therefore, we set Southampton as our favourites to take three points in this fixture.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Three of the last four H2H meetings between these two sides have concluded with Over 2.5 Goals. West Bromwich Albion have found the back of the net nine times in their previous five league outings away from the Hawthorns. On the other hand, Southampton have netted the ball eight times in the same number of games at St Mary’s Stadium. Moreover, the Saints have conceded goals in each game during that course. Therefore, we can expect this game to go Over 2.5 Goals in this encounter.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Southampton
West Bromwich has scored more than one goal in three of their last four games away from the Hawthorns. However, Southampton have been favourable on the defensive end as they have limited their rivals to scoring only one goal in each of their recent four home games. Offensively, the Saints have scored two or more goals in three of their last four fixtures in the Championship. Given these statistics, we predict a 2-1 lead in favour of Southampton in this fixture.
