Southampton plays the Wolves this weekend in a match the Saints have to win to distance themselves from the relegation zone. Currently sitting 17th on the table, the Saints are 5 points clear from Cardiff on the 18th. However, with 6 games till the end, Southampton will need to be very careful not to drop points, and the match against the Wolves will be a real test.
The Wolverhampton Wanderers have been a real PL hit this season. Even though the team failed to crack into the top 6, they’ve had great wins thanks to their core of great, talented young players. The Wolves already beat Chelsea and Manchester United twice this season while also winning against Liverpool and Tottenham. They’ve proven themselves as giant slayers, and come into the Southampton match with a heartbreaking loss against Watford in the FA Cup.
Jota, Gimenez, Neves, and the crew will surely look to bounce back up and keep pace with Leicester on the 7th spot. However, with Southampton looking to stay above the relegation zone, things won’t come easy. The Saints will probably come out guns blazing, looking to score first early in the match which will put them in a better position to win.
The match is expected to be pretty close. Even bookies can’t make out the clear favourite – Southampton is only slightly ahead at 8/5, while the Wolves are given odds of 39/20. You can back any team and win a solid return, although our suggestion would be to go with other markets.
