Southampton - Chelsea betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 13:30 on 20/02/2021 played @ St. Mary's Stadium

Southampton are the definition of underdogs in this fixture. With betting odds of 5.00, no punter will dare backing them up against Chelsea. It is a wise decision as well as hosts will have an extremely difficult task surviving this clash.

We are most likely going to see this match being won by Chelsea. They have a solid advantage over their opponents – at least according to the betting odds. That said, we’ve definitely seen much bigger surprises in the Premier League but such a scenario is not entirely likely in this fixture.

We witnessed The Saints fumble a lead in their previous home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers , so confidence is a bit shaken going into round 25. Still, the 1:2 loss was a narrow one, even if they were considered stronger by most experts going in.

Meeting Chelsea in their home turf cannot be easy. Last round, they walked away with a convincing 2:0 victory against Newcastle United and three additional points on the scoreboard. With the odds of 1.30 the victory came as no surprise and they will likely show the same form as visitors.

The first step Southampton need to make to improve is to shore up their defences. With more than 5 goals conceded over the last 3 matches, it seems to be the main aspect of play holding them back.

Chelsea’s record shows zero concessions over their previous three home games. As such, Away winning to Nill seems like a solid option to consider.

The match these two teams played earlier in the season ended in a draw. Overall, Southampton have a lot more reason to feel happy about that, being the underdogs in the matchup.

Will Smallbone, Michael Obafemi, Ibrahima Diallo, Theo Walcott will not be able to play for the hosts this Saturday due to various injuries. This makes their chances of coming out on top as underdogs even smaller but is important to keep in mind when considering betting odds.

The visitors clearly have the upper hand in this matchup, which is made even more sure thanks to the presence of their entire roster. They’ve had no injuries or suspensions recently, leaving their lineup intact for the game.

An Under 2.5 Goals bet is an easy tip to offer – it’s a fairly probable outcome with betting odds priced at a comfortable 1.98. More importantly, though, the betting value it offers is surprisingly solid.

Betting tip (stake: 8/10): Under 2,5 1.98 at Unibet
