Back Southampton to beat Bournemouth 2-0 at 13/2
Ahead of the marquee Super Sunday Premier League battle, between south coast rivals Southampton and Bournemouth, Coral give punters a fantastic bet of the day price to take.
Thrilling odds of 13/2 say that Ronald Koeman’s men will triumph 2-0 in this home fixture, and read on to find out why this is a great price to take…
While these two teams haven’t met since they were both in League One back in the 2010/11 season, Southampton won both of their meetings at St Mary’s by the same 2-0 scoreline – one of which was in the League Cup.
Now-Premier League stars Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert got the goals in those matches but, while they have all left Southampton, there are still attacking stars in their line-up to help them to victory.
Pelle and Mane to inflict more misery on Cherries
In-form forwards Graziano Pelle and Sadio Mane have been in great form this campaign, getting six and five strikes so far, and will be backed to be on target once more against the newly-promoted outfit.
On top of that, the Saints are on a run of four league games without defeat, while the Cherries haven’t won in that many matches.
Eddie Howe’s men may have started the season with promise, but have since lost key players to injury, such as Callum Wilson, Max Gradel and Tyrone Mings.
Bournemouth have conceded 10 times in their past two outings, to Manchester City and Tottenham, and are fancied to lose again.
Therefore, the 2-0 scoreline we have suggested seems a great bet to take at 13/2.
