Southampton are being backed for Sunday’s final Premier League match and it’s easy to understand why. The Saints are currently trading at 17/10 (bet365) having shortened from 2/1 as punters latch on to the fact that Manchester City will be preparing for Real Madrid a few days later.
City still have a top-four spot to retain and they are a 6/4 chance (Ladbrokes) to win at St Mary’s, although Manuel Pellegrini will rest a lot of players and that could lead to a home win.
The draw is a 12/5 chance with Stan James, with Saints having lost just one of their past seven matches and Shane Long has three from his past four matches. The Irishman is a 13/2 poke (bet365) to open the scoring in this one.
