The recent matches for Southampton and Huddersfield have been devoid of goalmouth action for the two teams, although they have witnessed a position get the better of them more often than not. Huddersfield went through a small period of sunshine a few weeks ago, but they are now in a difficult spot coming into this match. Southampton’s win over Arsenal gives them a lot of belief and confidence, but it is unlikely that they may replicate a home performance against top team in an away game against a fellow relegation contender. Our preview would pick a draw.

Huddersfield Town win odds: 3.00
Southampton win odds: 2.45
Correct Score odds
This much features two teams that have come up with just 26 goals combined. The recent three-goal haul against Arsenal certainly helps Southampton in terms of the goals scored aspect, but there is little denying the struggles faced by the South Coast outfit going forward. Huddersfield are the worst scoring outfit in the division by a huge margin after only managing 10 league goals. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been a string of games with under 2.5 goals for the two teams. Even the last two meetings between Southampton and Huddersfield did not have much in the form of goals. Even if Huddersfield have not been able to score much goals, David Wagner’s men have been able to hold their own at the back. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The work-rate and the quality shown by Danny Ings in the win over Arsenal were exceptional. The Liverpool forward, who is on loan at Southampton, came up with a brace to ascertain his superiority in the squad. Danny Ings provides a lot of quality when the ball is on the ground or in the air. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Danny Ings.
