TIP: Burnley (draw no bet)
Burnley’s record against Southampton speaks for itself. The Clarets haven’t tasted defeat against the Saints since 2016, and they’ll be aiming to extend that run on Saturday.
Indeed, not since 2007 have Southampton managed to beat Burnley at Turf Moor, and while the behind-closed-doors aspect of proceedings levels the playing field somewhat, this sort of hoodoo is often hard to shake off.
Therefore, backing Burnley (draw no bet) looks like a sensible option at this price. Southampton haven’t started this season well at all—falling to defeats against Crystal Palace and Spurs—which is all the more reason to back the hosts.
Yes, Burnley lost against Leicester in their opener, but considering their (marginal) home advantage and record against Southampton, it’s worth taking advantage of the visitors’ favouritism here.
