After an FA Cup break, we;re back with another Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net. Once again, out dedicated team of experts are on hand to deliver you the very best in quality when it comes to our Premier League tips, predictions and more.
For our Premier Leag predictions today we’re focussing on the clash in the King Power Stadium, where 4th placed Leicester City host a Southampton side who are chasing down a top 4 spot themselves. Read on below to find out our Premier League tips, betting info & predictions.
Despite having won just 2 of their last 5, Leicester City are still in 4th place and are actually undefeated in their last 4. Their Boxing Day draw against Manchester United was seen as a point gained, however the follow-up 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace will likely have been seen as a point lost. Their last Premier League outing was a 2-1 away victory against strugglers Newcastle. All in all, Leicester are showing in second consecutive season that they can challenge for the Champions League spots. Questions will be asked how much they are reliant on 34 year old jamie Vardy, especially next season.
It’s been a season that has defied most exper Premier League predictions, and no one embodied that in the run up to Christmas more than Southampton. The Saints have been something of a revelation under Ralph Hasenhüttl, even topping the Premier League in late November for the first time in 32 years. They hit a bit of snagg over the festive period, however, with a loss against Manchester City being followed by back to back 0-0 draws. Their last Premier League outing saw them take all 3 points against Champions and then League leaders Liverpool, so they should have confidence going into this game.
The first meeting between Leicester City and Southampton last season at St. Mary’s was the record breaking 9-0 away win for Leicester, a day that the Saints will definitely want to forget. That game came early in Ralph Hasenhüttl’s tenure, and he defied Premier League predictions by managing to hold onto his job. Good thing Southampton stuck by the Austrian manager, as we went on to win the return fixture 2-1 at the King Power Stadium and has worked wonders with the team this season, with European football remaining a realistic target.
Below, we’ve provided results from the last 5 games between these two sides as well as 3 statistical highlights. We’ve used all of this information and more in order to bring you our Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net
Having analysed the above information, our Premier League predictions today point to an away win for the Saints on Saturday
There’s not a lot separating these two sides in terms of quality at the minute, with their form in the last 3 games also being identical – a win preceded by 2 draws in the Premier League. However if you look at the most recent fixture, Southampton triumphed over the Champions Liverpool, while Leicester narrowly beat struggling Newcastle. Additionally, the Saints have had a two week rest while Leicester had to play on a cold Saturday afternoon in Stoke. Most interesting, however, is Leicester’s home form. Despite sitting 4th in the table, all of the foxes 5 losses this season have come at home. When you consider that fact. Backing Southampton at odds of 4.33 with Bet365 actually looks pretty generous. Neither team has been scoring in buckets in the Premier League recently either, so for an exact score, we’d go for either a 1-0 or a 2-1.
