Southampton Betting Preview
Southampton comes into this game sitting in 20th place in the standings, having picked up 22 points so far this season. On Sunday, Southampton faced off against Manchester United, and they played to a 0-0 draw. Southampton had 54 percent of the possession and four shots on target, but getting quality scoring chances was an issue. Two games ago, against Leicester City, they were able to win 1-0. Southampton knows if they don’t pick up points soon they are going to be relegated, and they need to push numbers forward in this game to try to get the three points. Southampton is expected to not make any changes to the starting lineup for this game.

On Saturday, Brentford faced off against Everton and the offense couldn’t get anything going as they were defeated 1-0. Brentford had 67 percent of the possession and four shots on target, but it wasn’t enough, as they couldn’t find the back of the net.

Thomas Strakosha and Keane Lewis-Potter are both dealing with longer-term injuries, and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game In this game if the defense is good they are going to be in good shape to secure the victory.
Shane’s Free Pick
Goals are going to be very hard to come by in this game. Southampton’s offense has been a major issue heading into this game, and they are going to have some major issues getting anything going. Look for Brentford to struggle to get quality scoring chances also, and this game is going to go under the total. Back the under to cash. I am also putting money on the under 1.5 goals.
