Southampton v Newcastle United Betting Tips Explained

The Mauricio Pellegrino era has got off to a rather rough start with Southampton floundering in the Premier League and out of the League Cup after losing at home to Championship side Wolves. Things started solidly enough as they took four points from their first two games, but they have now won only one of their last six competitive fixtures and have managed only two goals in that time.

And when it comes to their recent home form – it is nothing short of miserable. Saints have lost each of their last three competitive home games without scoring a single goal, and they will be desperate to stop that rot when Newcastle United pay a visit on Sunday afternoon. 

Despite being winless in their last two games, Newcastle United went into the international break in solid form having taken 10 points from their last five outings to climb into the top half of the Premier League table. Much of that success – seven of those points – have come at St James’ Park though, so there are still a few question marks hanging over them when it comes to away games and it is a big reason I cannot fully get behind them to leave St Mary’s with all three points on Sunday.

However, I do believe they will avoid a defeat at the hands of Southampton. Saints, after all, have not managed a victory in front of the home fans since a 3-2 win over West Ham United on August 19 and none of their strikers are firing in front of goal. Charlie Austin and Manolo Gabbiadini have managed only one goal apiece and Shane Long – who could sit this out with injury – is yet to get on the scoresheet in the league. That is the big reason they are not winning games just now and it is the main reason why they will not claim all of the spoils from Sunday’s meeting with Newcastle.

My second recommendation is backing this game to lack goals. As you already know, the three Southampton strikers have combined for just two goals through their first seven Premier League matches and only four clubs have scored less goals than Saints this season. Newcastle have hardly been prolific either – netting only seven times – but they have at least done a reasonable job of keeping the ball out of their own net. Under 2.5 Total Goals has been a winner in six of Southampton’s eight competitive fixtures and five of Newcastle’s seven Premier League outings so far, and it should be a winner again if you back it for Sunday’s game.
