Southampton are up against Everton at the St Mary’s Stadium hoping to jump away from the relegation zone. The Saints have made a positive impression since the arrival of Ralph Hasenhuttl and they are a couple of points away from the drop zone. Everton are having to rebuild after a disastrous few months and they have slipped out of the top half. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Southampton were able to claim an impressive 2-1 win over Leicester City despite playing with 10 men for much of the match. Hasenhuttl, though, saw the team lose against Derby in the FA Cup replay.
Everton were able to pick up back-to-back victories after a 2-0 win over Bournemouth at Goodison Park. It was a difficult first half for the Blues, who came back strongly in the second half to claim a victory.
The recent match between the two clubs produced a 1-1 draw in the League Cup at Goodison Park. Everton’s last visit to the St Mary’s Stadium saw them suffer a 4-1 defeat. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Southampton.

Everton come into the game with a rather poor record at the St Mary’s Stadium. Southampton have been able to beat Everton in four out of the last five meetings on this ground. Even though the Saints have been struggling with the threat of relegation throughout the campaign, Hasenhuttl has made a significant difference to the team over the last few weeks. The positive results against the likes of Leicester City and Chelsea will provide the team with a great deal of confidence, while Everton are struggling to find the same – despite picking up wins in the last two matches. Our preview would go with a win for Southampton.

Southampton vs Everton draw odds: 3.40
Everton win odds: 2.70
Correct Score odds
Everton lacked the confidence to even play out from the back and it was quite evident against Bournemouth. Southampton have shown a desire and hunger to press as a team. This has helped the club make a lot of difference going forward. Southampton have been able to get two goals in each of the last three matches. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Southampton 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Everton have been able to score in just 50% of the last four matches, but they are up against a Southampton outfit that will be keen to make use of this home game and take three points. In order to do so, Southampton have to attack and this will open up chances at the other end. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Shane Long had a massive impact in the match against Leicester City and he is likely to continue with Danny Ings just coming back to training after a spell on the sidelines. Long may have only made six appearances in the league this season, but our first goalscorer prediction would back Shane Long.
