Fulham FC vs Southampton FC – Betting Tips for the game
Fulham came up with an improved performance against Liverpool but still came away with a 2-0 defeat. This was the seventh consecutive defeat in all competitions and manager Slavisa Jokanovic lost his job as a result.
Southampton came extremely close to getting a first victory in the league since the start of September, but a late equaliser from Watford ended up producing a 1-1 draw at the St Mary’s Stadium.
The recent game between Fulham and Southampton was in the FA Cup back in January 2018 when the Saints picked up a 1-0 victory at Craven Cottage. Southampton’s last league visit to this ground was in 2014 when they managed a 3-0 victory. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Fulham.
Fulham FC vs Southampton FC – Match odds
Southampton are at a price of 2.80 to win this match. Even though the Saints have come up with some decent performances in recent games, Claudio Ranieri’s presence may just inspire Fulham to only their second league win of the campaign. Fulham have a strong squad which is capable of beating most Premier League teams on their day, but their low confidence levels coupled with naïve defending do not give much scope for positivity. Yet, a new manager’s presence and home advantage makes our preview go with a win for Fulham.
Fulham vs Southampton draw odds: 3.20
Southampton win odds: 2.80
Fulham FC vs Southampton FC – Correct Score odds
The Fulham team have been unable to score in the last three games against Southampton, who have netted six goals during the same period. However, this Saints team have been extremely low on goals with only Huddersfield scoring fewer goals from the first 12 matches. Fulham are also no better but they have plenty of attacking talent like Ryan Sessegnon and Aleksandar Mitrovic, who were a threat against Liverpool. Our correct score prediction would go with a Fulham 2-0 win.
Fulham FC vs Southampton FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This is a game between two teams that have scored under a goal per game in the two league matches so far this season. Even with the new manager factor, Fulham may not be exuberant going forward. Our total goals prediction expects under 2.5 goals.
Fulham FC vs Southampton FC – First Goalscorer odds
Aleksandar Mitrovic came close to scoring against Liverpool on a couple of occasions. Even though he has been unable to score since the goal against Watford in the middle of September, he has been scoring on the international front – including during the recent international break. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Aleksandar Mitrovic.
