Newcastle and Southampton have achieved very similar overall ratings on our Trueform chart during the past five rounds of Premier League fixtures.
Both teams can boast one stand-out win, three stalemates and just a single defeat on their records.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Rafael Benitez tried to keep things tight on his return to Anfield last weekend, but Liverpool proved just too good for Newcastle in a 2-0 triumph.
However, the Magpies had been unbeaten in their previous four top-flight fixtures, edging out Manchester United and sharing the spoils with Burnley, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.
Benitez knows that United’s next two matches, at home to the Saints and Huddersfield, could be pivotal to his side’s survival bid.
The Spaniard said: “Southampton will be dangerous, they are struggling but they are a very good team, Huddersfield are very dangerous, it doesn’t matter that you are at home.
“It would be a massive achievement for everyone (to survive) because we are still a way from it. We need to just concentrate on every game.”
A tense tussle is on the cards here, so 29/20 for no goals to be scored in the first half stands out from the Newcastle vs Southampton odds.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Like Newcastle, Southampton are still just above the drop zone, despite only suffering one defeat in 10 games in all competitions, with that loss also coming against Liverpool.
However, while the Saints have rattled off three straight FA Cup wins to reach the quarter-finals of that tournament, too many stalemates are hampering their Premier League progress.
Back-to-back draws against Burnley and Stoke made it a division-high 13 for the season!
Southampton were jeered off at the end of each half by their own fans following a goalless stalemate with the Potters on home turf.
Mauricio Pellegrino suggested that some of his squad are suffering from a lack of confidence, stating: “For managers, the easier thing is maybe the tactical or technical things, to put players on the pitch.
“But to connect with human beings that have got feelings is something that we have to be behind them, supporting them, because at this level it’s not easy to be there.”
Saints have featured in seven 1-1 draws so far and 5/1 for that scoreline completes our Newcastle vs Southampton betting tips.
