Tips Both teams to score - No    Best Bet @ 8 / 11  

Recent Form

Southampton managed to score in front of their own fans for a change last weekend as they drew 2-2 with Newcastle but that was a rare feat and it is difficult to see them getting much out of Tony Pulis's well-drilled West Brom defence.

Mauricio Pellegrino's men have failed to score in eleven of their past fifteen home games in all competitions (won two, drawn five, lost eight) and it is difficult to back them at 4/5 odds-on (Betfred) for the win.

They have won just the two league games so far (drawn three, lost three), scoring a meagre seven goals and conceding nine, and they take on a West Brom outfit that can be backed at 4/1 for the win, albeit they have gone six games without a victory following their 1-1 draw at Leicester on Monday night..
Match Odds:

Lack Of Goals

The Baggies have only managed seven goals in eight games (won two, drawn four, lost two) but they are difficult to break down and goals are likely to be hard to come by.

Since Saints were promoted back to the Premier League in 2012, at least one team has failed to score in nine of the ten Southampton v West Brom fixtures, with each team winning four apiece and drawing two.

Backing 'no' in the both teams to score bracket seems like a solid option at 8/11 with Bet Victor, while under 2.5 goals is available at 4/7 (Paddy Power).

There won't be too much between these two sides and one goal might well settle it, with Jay Rodriguez a tempting 17/2 to score first (Paddy Power) as he returns to his old stomping ground for the first time since leaving Southampton for West Brom in the summer.
