Southampton v Newcastle Odds: Back the Saints to beat out of form Newcastle

Southampton head into Sunday's match at home to Newcastle full of confidence following their valuable win away to fellow Premier League strugglers QPR last weekend. Meanwhile Newcastle are currently going through a slump in form having failed to win any of their last five matches in all competitions.

The Saints recorded a comprehensive 3-1 victory at Loftus Road which not only eased the pressure on the under-fire Nigel Adkins but halted a dismal run of five consecutive defeats on the road. Bookmakers Paddy Power have installed the hosts as the 11/8 favourites for the win, while Newcastle can be backed at 19/10, with a draw available at 12/5.

The match sees Alan Pardew return to his former stomping ground for the first time since his surprise sacking back in 2010. The Saints have the chance to pile further misery on Pardew, whose side are on the verge of losing thee consecutive league matches for the first time since 2008. The Magpies’s away form has been a cause for concern, with Pardew's men without a win on the road this season. However, four of those games have ended with the honours even, with their only defeat at Stanford Bridge to Chelsea.

The Saints may be without a win at St Mary's since September but last weekend's convincing win will no doubt have rejuvenated the whole squad, with the Hampshire side worth backing at 15/2 to claim a 2-1 win against the Magpies. Saints games are virtually always guaranteed goals and Adkin’s men are priced at 7/2 to win with three or four more goals scored in the match.

Rickie Lambert opened the scoring against QPR last Saturday and he can be backed at 6/1 to do the same on Sunday. The striker has five goals to his name this season and is also a tempting bet at 13/8 to score anytime against Newcastle. Winger Jason Puncheon was simply superb at Loftus road and he is definitely worth a punt at 11/4 to get his name on the scoresheet for the second consecutive match.

Newcastle came away with a 2-1 win on their last visit to St Mary's back in 2004 and they have been priced at 9/1 to repeat that scoreline on Sunday. However, with confidence low a 2-2 draw could be the way to go at 10/1. Demba Ba scored in his side's last league match against Swansea and he can be found with odds of 7/5 with PaddyPower to do so again on Sunday, while he is the 11/2 favourite in the first goalscorer market.
