Southampton vs Watford in the Premier League on Mar 13. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Southampton vs Watford in the Premier League on Mar 13. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After seeing their unbeaten run go up in smoke, Southampton must make sure that their season is not derailed and if they can avoid slipping off the tracks, then a top-ten finish will likely be their end destination.

However, their season is far from over and they must make sure to keep the teams below them at bay and with a visiting Watford side having more joy on the road than at home, they will not be the easiest nut to crack on Sunday.

Watford To Win

Before Watford’s visit of Wolves, the Hornets have picked up 12 of their 19 points on the road this season and therefore, they will be looking for more success when they travel to Southampton on Sunday.

While looking at the best betting sites online, I have noticed a set of odds that really have caught my attention and although it could be considered something of a punt, I am ready to gamble all the same.

A gamble that comes in backing Watford to win away at Southampton and although they are currently priced at odds of 5/1 with 888sport, I have a belief that risk will certainly equal reward this weekend.

Southampton Form, squad news, opinion

When it comes to clubs who have quietly gone about their business this season, you would have to say Southampton have been the best at doing so and as we enter the final third of the campaign, things are shaping up nicely for the Saints.

Because not only are Southampton currently in the top-half of the Premier League table, but they are also in the last eight of this season’s F.A. Cup and if they win their quarterfinal tie with Manchester City, they will earn the first of two possible trips to Wembley.

That encounter is not until next weekend and this weekend, Ralph Hasenhuttl will be preparing for the visit of Watford - a team that right now, have everything to gain and ultimately nothing to lose.

However, Southampton will not want to lose themselves on Sunday and although it would be easy for the Saints to hit the beach at this stage of the campaign, their objective is one that is clear for the football fraternity to see.

Earn a top-ten finish and earn prize money and progress to go with it. While if that proves to be the case, then it will help keep the likes of James Ward-Prowse at the club before the start of the 2022/23 season.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Watford, there are no new concerns for manager Ralph Hasenhuttl to worry about. Although this does mean he is once again without the trio of Alex McCarthy, Nathan Tella and Lysanco.

Watford Form, squad news, opinion

Going into Thursday night’s fixture with Wolves, Watford have lost each and every one of their last eight league outings at Vicarage Road and with that in mind, they will be glad for a road trip at the weekend.

One that takes them to St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton and with Roy Hodgson getting far more joy on his travels than he is home, he will hope for more away day fortune this Sunday afternoon.

Because if there is one thing that Watford have been lacking in recent times is joy and although they have run teams close from time to time, the Hornets still find themselves within the confines of the relegation zone.

A zone that will extinguish three teams from the Premier League at the end of the season and although you can make a case for each club surviving, you can also make a strong case for their demotion at the same time.

Especially when it comes to Watford and when you look at the simple fact that they are one of three worst teams in the division right now, they are going to need a desperate uptick in form to keep their heads above the water.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Southampton, manager Roy Hodgson will once again have to contend with inherited issues, and this means that Kwadwo Baah and Peter Etebo are unavailable at the weekend.

History

When it comes to the history of these two teams, Southampton versus Watford is not the most intense of rivalries. Then again, both clubs will still be looking for maximum points at the weekend.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Southampton have won on 38 occasions, Watford 26 and there have been 22 draws

About the Venue

After its construction some 21 years ago, the St Mary’s Stadium replaced The Dell as the home of Southampton football club and although it has not seen anything in the way of trophies delivered, it has played host to some world class footballers over the years.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When it comes to the Premier League outright markets, Southampton’s mid-table status does not make them attractive in terms of bets and therefore, the focus should be placed on what they can do at the weekend.

While when it comes to the relegation odds at present, Watford currently find themselves as second favourites for the drop and on current form, you can begin to see just why this is the case.
