Betting Tips for the game

Liverpool were able to beat Spurs 2-1 at Wembley in yet another impressive performance from Jurgen Klopp’s men. The Reds followed that victory with a 3-2 success over PSG in the midweek Champions League game.

Southampton have had a full week to prepare for this encounter after having last played against Brighton in a 2-2 draw with the South Coast team.

Liverpool’s last game at Southampton was at the St Mary’s stadium with the Reds were registering a 2-0 win. The last meeting at Anfield produced a 3-0 victory for Liverpool. Our betting tips and predictions expect a similar victory for the Reds.

Match odds

Southampton are at odds of 17.00 for a victory in this encounter. However, we would not pick this option even for this price. Liverpool have been spectacular so far this season on almost every aspect and the last two games against Spurs and PSG witnessed a tactical masterclass from Jurgen Klopp. Even though Southampton last picked up a victory at Anfield back in January 2017, the gulf between the two teams is quite huge. Our preview would choose a win for Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Southampton draw odds: 7.50

Southampton win odds: 17.00

Correct Score odds

Liverpool have averaged just over two goals per game this season but they have been deserving of much better. A huge progress has been made on the defensive front with the team conceding only two goals so far. Apart from the better quality players signed in the summer, Jurgen Klopp has also defined the defensive process with the team pushing up from the front. Southampton will struggle quite badly in this regard and our correct score prediction would go with a 3-0 win for Liverpool.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

It is incredible that just one of the last six games between Southampton and Liverpool has produced anything remotely close to an entertaining encounter in terms of goals. Even though Southampton are once again not expected to contribute to the goals in this match, the offensive strength of Liverpool alone may be sufficient to get a great deal of entertainment for the Kop. Our total goals prediction back over 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds

Roberto Firmino has been in excellent form and it is hard to discount the Brazilian for this market. He has been able to score in his last four games for club and country. The Brazilian also came up with the opener when Liverpool last played against Southampton. Our first goalscorer prediction would opt for Roberto Firmino.
