Southampton v Brighton Odds

Southampton are 21/20 for the win but this is a team that has won just one of their last 13 league games at home (drawn six, lost six) and it is the draw that is probably the most appealing bet (23/10) when considering the match outcome.

Brighton have lost 14 of their 21 away games (drawn five, won two) since earning promotion to the top-flight and they are difficult to back at 16/5.

Neither side is exactly flush with goals as it is now five hours, 20 minutes and counting since Brighton last scored an away goal in the league, with each of the past three meetings involving two goals or less.

They drew 1-1 home and away last season before Southampton won 1-0 in the EFL Cup at the Amex Stadium last month, with Betfair going 4/6 about under 2.5 goals landing again on Monday night.

It looks like a decent bet as Southampton are sweating on the fitness of Charlie Austin and Shane Long, although Danny Ings is expected to be fit and is 9/5 to score at anytime.

When looking for a goalscorer in this match, you could do worse than back Glenn Murray. The sixth-highest scorer in the Premier League in 2018, Murray has scored four goals in his last five starts against Southampton, including a goal in both matches last season. Murray is 23/10 to score at anytime with Paddy Power.
