Southampton v Fulham betting tips: Hasenhuttl eyes back-to-back wins
Southampton are in the middle of a three-game spell of home matches and with Danny Ings back in the fold they will be hopeful of defeating relegated Fulham.
Ings scored a double in Tuesday night’s 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace after a two-game absence and Saints are evens to make it back-to-back wins on Saturday.
We have pinpointed some of the trends to help punters with their Southampton v Fulham betting tips.
Saints have had a wretched 2021 with Tuesday’s victory only their fourth of the new year and one which ended a five-game winless run.
The teams shared a goalless draw at Craven Cottage on Boxing Day and another stalemate is priced at 12/5 while the visitors are 14/5 to win despite losing six of their last seven games.
Scott's thoughts after #FULBUR.

There have been goals at both ends in Southampton’s previous six Premier League games at St Mary’s and both teams to score is priced at 3/4.
However, Scott Parker’s dispirited side have found the net just four times in their last 10 games and at least one team not to score is available at 19/20.
Southampton to win or draw, Fulham under 0.5 goals in the first half and under 3.5 goals in the match can be backed at evens as a #GetAPrice bearing in mind the Cottagers have scored just once in the opening 45 minutes in 15 outings.
Ralph Hasenhuttl revealed centre-back Jan Bednarek came off at half-time with a leg injury and he is doubtful to face Fulham, so Mohammed Salisu could get his sixth start of the season.
Hasenhuttl will deploy his usual 4-4-2 against Fulham, who started with Aleksandar Mitrovic up front in the 2-0 defeat by Burnley which sealed their relegation.
Mitrovic is 13/2 to get the first goal of the game having scored four in three World Cup qualifiers for Serbia recently which he supplemented with a strike against Aston Villa.
However, Ings is the hot favourite at 7/2 to get the ball rolling, 13/8 to score and 9/1 to bag another double against a team that have only conceded three more goals than Leicester.
Che Adams atoned for his miss against Liverpool by scoring in between Ings’ double and he is priced at 11/2 to break the deadlock and 23/10 to find the net once again.
