Southampton vs Wolves Betting Preview | 18 Jan 2020

Knowing that three points this weekend could see them find a shock route into the top half of the table, a high-flying Southampton will welcome Wolves to St. Mary’s on Saturday afternoon.

Once again stealing the show last week after picking up a 2-1 win away at the King Power, few across the Premier League would have expected the Saints’ stellar run of form.

On the flip side, while Southampton might have transformed into one of England’s in-form sides, Wolves find themselves in the midst of what is becoming an extended rut.

Crashing out of the FA Cup thanks to a 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford, the Midlands outfit have failed to win any of their last five matches across all competitions and have continued to show some issues on the road.

With Southampton landing a 3-1 win when Wolves made the trip to St. Mary’s back in April, you might be interested to know that the Saints can be found at 7/5 with Bet365 to come away with maximum points this weekend.

Who can stop Danny Ings?

Making another statement and picking up revenge over Leicester thanks to a stunning 2-1 win at the King Power, Southampton have shown some stellar improvements since opening the New Year.

Enjoying a remarkable six-match unbeaten run and winning five of those contests, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men have also managed to snatch victories off of Tottenham and Chelsea.

Knowing that three points this weekend could see them break into the top half, one man who has continued to lead Southampton’s recent purple patch has been the red-hot Danny Ings.

Grabbing the winner at the King Power, the 27-year-old has bagged a stunning 15 goals in his last 17 appearances across all competitions and is heavily linked with an England call-up.

Also finding the net in each of his last three Premier League matches on the bounce, the one-time Liverpool striker can be found priced at 6/5 with Coral to extend on that tally this weekend.

Wolves seeking a clinical edge

After watching Manchester United book their spot in the fourth round of this year’s FA Cup with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford, many around Molineux have been worried by Wolves’ growing issues entering the New Year.

Only managing to grab a point off of an injury-riddled Newcastle on home soil last week, the Oranges have failed to win any of their last five matches across all competitions and are starting to show some real signs of fatigue.

Playing their 38th matchup already this season, no team in the top-flight has made more appearances than Nuno Espírito Santo’s men.

With leading marksman Raul Jimenez failing to find the net in each of his last five matches, a huge part of Wolves’ recent issues has been down to some toothless displays in the final third.

Drawing another blank on Wednesday, the Midlands outfit have managed to bag just a single goal in over 300 minutes of action.

Also losing their last three matches on the bounce while on the road, you might be interested to know that Santo’s men can be found at 9/4 with 888Sport to draw another blank this weekend.
