BEST ODDS TO BET ON:
- Underdogs: Saints +3.5 (-110)
- Reds vs Saints Over/Under: 450 points
The Saints (19-14-3 ATS) are 20-16 Over/Under and have compiled a 10-6-2 record at home. Southampton is 7-11 O/U at home and is reeling from consecutive losses to Crystal Palace (1-2) at home and an away loss to Brentford (0-3) on May 7 to drag them lower to 15th place in the standings.
The Reds (16-16-4 ATS) went 9-6-3 away and are 18-4-4 O/U despite coming off a scoreless draw at Chelsea on Saturday. Liverpool averaged 8.70 shots and 5.00 corners per match and has failed to score seven times but they are 10-6-2 O/U away and might come into the match without injured key players Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk.
Southampton lost in their last home match in three of their last five Premier League campaigns, even as the Saints lost by a 2-0 margin to Leeds United in this fixture last year. The Saints’ last eight victories over Liverpool in the Premier League at St Mary’s Stadium have come under eight different managers, as they try to play the spoilers’ role against the Reds.
Final Predictions and Picks:
- Spread — 2 Liverpool – 1 Southampton
- Over/Under— OVER 450 points
