Wolves vs Southampton Betting Preview | 19 Oct 2019

Finding the morale in their camp the highest it has been all season heading into the international break, Wolves will look to extend on their continued purple patch when Southampton come to town on Saturday afternoon.

Picking up a famous 2-0 win away at defending champions Manchester City a fortnight ago, NunoEspírito Santo’s men have now won their last four matches across all competitions and appear to have bounced back after their sluggish start to the campaign.

On the flip side, while Wolves might be a team on the rise, Southampton are a side desperately looking to pick up a much-needed victory.

Shipping four against Chelsea prior to the break, Saturday’s guests have now lost their last three Premier League matches on the spin and have begun freefalling down the table.

With Wolves picking up a 2-0 victory the last time the Saints made the trip to Molineux last season, you might be interested to know that an identical scoreline can be found at 15/2 with Bet365.

Wolves finding their feet?

Although Wolves may have failed to win any of their opening six Premier League matchups at the start of the 2019/2020 campaign, Head Coach NunoEspírito Santo sees his side coming off the back of a season-best display.

Picking up a famous 2-0 win away at Manchester City a fortnight ago, last year’s surprise package have won their last four matches across all competitions, including back-to-back top-flight victories.

Also opening their Europa League campaign with a 1-0 win away at Turkish outfit Besiktas earlier in the month, there is no doubt that fans around Molineux will be growing more pleased by the Wolves’ continued showings at the back.

Saturday’s hosts have now recorded three clean sheets on the bounce and have gone almost 300 minutes without picking the ball out of their own net.

With their sights now set on breaking into the top half of the table this weekend, you might be interested to know that Wolves can be found at 5/4 with Ladbrokes to secure another clean sheet on home soil.

The Saints start to struggle

While Southampton may have shown some signs of life last month, the Saints appear to have slumped back to the side that opened their Premier League campaign with a 3-0 hammering against Burnley.

Putting in arguably a season-worst display and suffering a 4-1 hammering against Chelsea prior to the break, Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men have lost their last three top-tier matches on the bounce.

A huge part of their continued issues over the past month have come down to some glaring issues at the back.

Saturday’s guests have now shipped two or more goals in each of their last three defeats and you might be interested to know that Southampton are pencilled in at 1/1 with Coral to once again ship over 1.5 goals this weekend.

If they are to force a buffer between the drop zone, then the former RB Leipzig boss will be looking for leading marksman Danny Ings to extend on his recent purple patch.

The former Liverpool striker has scored four in his last three across all competitions and can be found at 11/4 with Bet365 to once again find the net this weekend.
