NORWICH V SOUTHAMPTON – Click here to bet
The early kick off pits bottom club Norwich up against 14th placed Southampton. Norwich are currently 5 points behind 2nd from bottom Aston Villa and they really have to win fixtures like these if they want to stay in the Premier League. Most of their points have come at home this season where they have won 4 and drawn 3 of 14 matches. One stat that stands out from their matches before the break was that 4 of their last 5 games delivered for under 2.5 goal backers.
Southampton are virtually assured of safety and need just a couple of wins will ensure their survival. They weren’t in great nick before the break though losing 4 of their last 5 matches. Interestingly enough they have taken the majority of their points on the road with 6 wins and 2 draws in their 14 starts.
These sides met at Southampton in December with the home team edging it 2-1 on that occasion.
Suggested Bet: The draw at 51/20
I expect Norwich to fight hard in this one, but they rightly start as underdogs and I think both teams would be happy with a point and make the draw a big runner.
