Southampton v Leicester betting tips: Foxes hunt Saints win

| 30.11.2021

Southampton v Leicester betting tips and odds

Leicester returned to form at the weekend and will now strive for consistency as we look at some Southampton v Leicester betting tips.

The Foxes beat Watford 4-2 to spoil Claudio Ranieri’s return to the King Power Stadium, where he is revered for guiding the club to Premier League glory in 2016.

Southampton sit 15th and five points above the relegation zone but are aiming to avoid a third successive defeat.

Match Odds

Two of Southampton’s three wins this season have arrived at St Mary’s and they are 27/20 to add to that tally.

Goals have been in short supply on the south coast though with just nine being scored in six matches at this venue.

On four occasions there have been no more than one goal and under 1.5 again is 29/10 in Southampton v Leicester betting tips.

Conversely, Leicester’s away matches have been full of goals with 20 being struck in six matches.

All of them have resulted in both teams scoring so it is 4/7 that record continues and 7/10 for over 2.5 goals.

Leicester are unbeaten on their previous four trips to St Mary’s, which included a 9-0 romp in October 2019.

Both teams scored in three of those meetings and it is 19/5 for another Leicester win and BTTS.

Talking Tactics

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl opted for an ambitious 3-4-3 formation at Anfield having played 4-4-2 in recent weeks.

Conceding inside two minutes didn’t help their cause but they still created chances and Adam Armstrong and Armando Broja were denied by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.

Teenager Valentino Livramento has earned rave reviews for his performances for Saints and he should have more opportunities to join the attack against the Foxes.

Leicester tend to play a 4-2-3-1 with James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Ademola Lookman behind Jamie Vardy.

Maddison’s form has picked up in recent weeks after an injury-hit season while Vardy will be looking to build on his brace against Watford.

Goalscorer Odds

Che Adams, Armstrong, James Ward-Prowse and Broja have all netted twice for Southampton this season.

Adams has three goals in five games in all competitions – all away from home. He is 5/1 to score first and 15/8 to strike at any time.

Armstrong has only registered once since the opening day and is 2/1 to get on the scoresheet.

Vardy scored his first goals in five games against the Hornets. He now has nine in total for the season and is 16/5 to open the scoring and 23/20 to net at any time.

Maddison is looking to score for the third successive game and is 7/2 to find the net.
