Monday Night Football on Sky Sports this week sees Southampton host Everton at St Mary’s, in what should be a cracking game of football.
Everton start as even money favourites to win the match, Southampton can be backed at 13/5, whilst the draw is available at 5/2. All odds quoted are available with Bet365.
Southampton battled back from two goals down at Stamford Bridge in midweek to earn a 2-2 draw, and by doing so extended their unbeaten league run to five matches. Saints have also become much meaner in defence at home, conceding four goals in their last six home league matches. Notably those matches have all gone under 2.5 goals.
Everton travel south to Hampshire in decent form, having lost only one of their last eleven Premier League matches. Prior to Christmas David Moyes’ men were becoming a tad fond of the score draw, but that has since changed with three victories in their last five league matches. Away from home Everton have won their last two matches, and in their last eight on the road both teams have scored. Trend-spotters will have also noticed that Everton’s last five league victories have all been by the same 2-1 scoreline.
Despite Southampton being on a decent run, at the prices I fancy Everton to take all three points. Even money is a reasonable price, and for a correct score interest it makes sense to go for 2-1 in favour of The Toffees at 15/2. And lastly but not unsurprisingly, I would suggest covering your bets with a punt on both teams to score at 8/13.
