Betting Tips for the game
Southampton put in a strong performance but ended up coming away with a 3-1 loss against Liverpool during the weekend. Southampton have picked up three wins in the last five matches to greatly improve your chances of staying in the division next season.
Wolves’ FA Cup dreams came to an end after a 3-2 extra time defeat against Watford at the Wembley. Now, Nuno will be switching focus back to the Premier League with Wolves still capable of qualifying for Europe.
The reverse fixture saw Wolves get a 2-0 win over Southampton when the Saints were struggling for results earlier in the campaign. Wolves’ last visit to the St Mary’s Stadium saw them pick up a 2-0 win. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a draw.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Draw at 3.10[/bet_tip_now]
Wolves come into the game with a strong record against Southampton and they have also managed back-to-back wins in all competitions. However, Ralph Hasenhuttl has made Southampton a very strong team, who have been able to work very hard for getting themselves out of the drop zone. It will be difficult for Wolves to recover quickly from the FA Cup exit after having built up so much excitement at the possibility of reaching the final. Wolves may find it difficult to get the motivation to achieve results in the remaining five matches. Our preview would go with a draw.

Southampton win odds: 2.50
Wolves win odds: 2.90
Correct Score odds
A strong feature of Southampton has been the ability to work very hard and prevent the opposition from having space. Wolves also excel in this regard and they would be trying to play the usual counter-attacking game in the best possible way. However, both teams can cancel out each other and this can be a scrappy match. Our correct score prediction would pick a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last two meetings between Wolves and Southampton have been with a 2-0 score in favour of the former. Both teams have a strong defence coming into the game as they have conceded 1.5 goals or fewer in the last six matches. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Raul Jimenez has not shown signs of any complacency after completing his £30 million switch to Wolves. The striker scored in the FA Cup semi-final against Watford for his 16th goal of the campaign – 12 of them in the Premier League. The 27-year-old has scored or assisted a goal in seven out of the last 10 games for club and country. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Raul Jimenez.
