Southampton vs Wolves: The wolves entered a period of poor performance, while Southampton was on a good run at the same time. Along with the house advantage, the Saints seem to be favorites this Saturday.
The last time the two met, the booty split with a score of 1-1.
Four of the first five victories were won by teams with the home advantage.
Seven of the previous eleven victories had been for Southampton.
Since 2003, only two wolves have won on this site.
At the beginning of the season, Southampton had become the laughingstock of the league, with very bad performances. Especially his defeat at home against Leicester, who also with a record score of 0-9 was too heavy for even the most loyal fans.
However, the team made an inspiring return in the last days of the game, and even took revenge on their defeat against the Fox by defeating the 2015-2016 PL champions at their home, the legendary King Power Stadium.
Of course, Southampton is slowly growing to become a fearsome team.
Southampton had made a road trip to meet Leicester on the last day of the game, and it seemed that a repeat of the humiliation that had occurred in the back leg could happen again.
But against all odds, the Foxes were defeated in front of their audience, with a score of 1-2, which seriously undermined their title hopes.
Meanwhile, the Wolves were at home and still couldn’t settle for a 1-1 draw against Newcastle in a rather dull match.
As it is this weekend, Southampton is easily the favorite. They have just won a visitor victory against Leicester, one of the best teams in the competition, and to further improve their chances, the Saints also have an advantage at home.
In addition, Southampton is on a winning streak of three games in all competitions and has also won seven of its last ten games. They were also undefeated in nine of their eleven previous games.
At home, they were invincible in five of their previous six clashes and had also won four.
On the other hand, the Wolves are in a four-game run without victories in all competitions, and could score only two goals in their last four games.
Along the way, they have added only two victories in their last nine starts, and these two victories came against the teams currently in 19th and 20th place.
In addition, four of the previous five h2h wins were won by teams with a home advantage, and seven of the previous eleven wins went to Southampton. Finally, in the last 17 years, the Wolves have only recorded a two-game victory over Southampton in this stadium.
Finally, consider Southampton’s desperation to accumulate as many points as possible, given the time they lost during their stretch of difficult performances.
Given all these findings, it follows that Southampton has the best chance of winning this weekend. However, to increase our chances of return, we will opt for safer betting options.
