A pair of teams heading in opposite directions meet in this Sunday clash, with struggling Southampton deep in a relegation battle while Newcastle United are launching a charge for continental football.
Newcastle took four points from two meetings with the Saints last term, which is more fuel to the fire for the in-form Magpies being the favourites in the Southampton v Newcastle betting odds for this one.
Saints slipping towards the drop
Pressure on Ralph Hasenhuttl continues to build with Southampton yet to find form this season despite a large investment in new players and a fresh transfer strategy during the summer window. The Saints sit 17th in the table, a point and a place above the drop zone, after losing 1-0 at Crystal Palace last week.
Southampton have beaten Chelsea at home this season but that is one of only two victories in front of their own fans since February. Home form needs to pick up quickly if the Saints are to march clear of the drop zone, but they went down 2-1 on their own ground when Newcastle visited back in March.
There have been under 2.5 goals scored in Southampton’s last four Premier League games, so their matches are not always the most exciting for football fans to watch. The 19/20 at 888Sport for under 2.5 goals is a good place to start in the Southampton v Newcastle betting odds as a result. Southampton have only scored three goals in their last five games, so their problems are clear to assess right now.
Magpies building Champions League charge
A 4-0 home win over Aston Villa last time out means excitement levels are heading through the roof on Tyneside. Newcastle will make the trip to Southampton full of confidence having racked up five wins from their last six matches in the Premier League, including victories at Fulham and Tottenham.
Eddie Howe’s team are on a roll with Miguel Almiron one of the form players in the Premier League right now. The Paraguay playmaker was seen as being in danger of losing his place in the team not long ago but he has scored seven goals in the Premier League this season already. Almiron has hit five goals in five games during his current hot streak and is certainly of interest in the player props markets in the Southampton v Newcastle betting odds as a result ahead of Sunday’s meeting between the sides.
There are plenty of reasons to side with Newcastle here, with the Magpies charging up the table. They are fourth in the league and genuinely in contention for Champions League qualification right now. Southampton seem unlikely to put up too much of a fight at the weekend, so the 10/11 from 888Sport for a Newcastle win could be well worth taking here.
The Southampton v Newcastle betting odds point to an away win and it is hard to argue. Southampton rarely win at home – just twice in the league since February – and despite recently going three games unbeaten in the Premier League, losing 1-0 at Crystal Palace has left them right back in the mire.
Newcastle’s run of five wins from six games makes it easy to back them at 10/11 with 888Sport. The Magpies also won on their last visit to Southampton, providing more evidence they will take the points.
It does seem likely to be a tight game, though. Southampton’s last four league games have all seen under 2.5 goals scored, which can be found at 19/20 at 888Sport.
Almiron has scored in four out of his last five Premier League appearances, so the Paraguay star has to be of interest in the Southampton v Newcastle goalscorer betting markets for Sunday as well.
