Southampton vs West Ham 19 August 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

West Ham was beaten badly in their first game of the season which they played at Old Trafford against Manchester United. This weekend they travel to St Mary’s Stadium where they will play their second away game in a row against Southampton. This should be an interesting game since both the sides are quite evenly matched.

West Ham has spent big over the summer but they are yet to get a win. This will be a great chance for them to get three points but I think it might be hard for them since playing away at Southampton is not as easy task. I do not think that they will be beaten badly or even beaten but it will not be an easy game.
The Saints drew their first game and now they will be looking to get a win on the boards. I think the home ground advantage will help but this side is not playing well at the moment. They are struggling to score and they are struggling to create chances so this is a big problem.

Neither team has scored a goal this season so the under 2.5 goals looks like the best bet at the moment. I am expecting a 1-0 or 2-0 result for this game. I think that the home ground advantage will be enough as well so I am going to predict that the Saints get the three points in this match. This bet is also getting a good price so I think betting on the overall result of the game is also a good option in term of profitability and good odds.
