Latest Southampton vs Newcastle Betfred Odds

Match Result – Draw 

Newcastle have drawn three of their last six matches (all finishing 0-0) and five of Southampton’s last six games have all been settled by a solitary goal, meaning every match has been close.

With a potential Wembley cup final the reward, I envisage this being a really cagey game, with both sides happy to take the draw heading into the second leg on Tyneside.

Under 2.5 goals

As mentioned before, The Magpies games generally don’t involve a lot of goals. Eddie Howe has them set up to be tight defensively and obdurate, resulting in low scoring matches.

Three 0-0 draws have contributed to five of their last six games ending in unders and 12 of 20 for the Premier League season.

Saints have seen 11 of their 20 games end with less than three goals scored and given the magnitude of this tie, I think it will be another low scoring affair.

Over 9.5 corners

One thing these two teams do churn out is a lot of corners.

Newcastle are second in the league for Corners at 6.4 a game and joint top for combined match corners at 10.6.

Southampton are slightly less at 4.2 and 9.4 but I’m willing to take a chance on 10 or more corners to occur in this Carabao Cup clash.

The three selections combined pay 11/2 using the #PickYourPunt coupon.
