England Premier League
Southampton to beat Crystal Palace @ 2.15 (Bet365) – 2 points

Southampton are heading into this game after a morale boosting victory against Everton last time around by a huge 3-0 scoreline, which will give confidence to them after dropping 4 games in a row against Man Utd, Arsenal, Man City and Burnley.  What will give them a lot of confidence also is that hit-man Graziano Pelle came back to score a goal after being scoreless for 4-5 weeks. Southampton will be confident have keeping that clean sheet also against the attacking Everton lineup, which is a more important thing for them especially when they travel away on the road. They have a good record against their opponents Crystal Palace today where they have won 4 games in a row with 4 clean sheets as well.

Southampton will head into this game also knowing that Palace have struggled to win a game in almost a month now, the last one being a shock win against Liverpool.  Palace have struggled to find too many wins, but managed a lot of draws so far this campaign. The biggest issue for Palace is finding a reliable goal scorer to help put the ball away as their top scorer has been Jedinak who has knocked in 5 goals and out of which 3 were penalties. Frazier Campbell and Dwight Gayle are fighting for just a solitary spot since Palace only field one striker. This game looks tough for Palace especially with Southampton looking extremely motivated to secure a victory tonight to keep up the pace for the 4th spot in the Premier League with West Ham who are 2 points ahead of them and facing Chelsea tonight.

Backing the Saints to do the business tonight.
