Southampton - West Ham Betting Preview: Why backing another low-scoring match would be sensible

Sunday's Premier League game comes from St Mary's Stadium and features two sides with four points from their first three games, and our tipster is backing unders in the goal market
Southampton host West Ham on Sunday afternoon with both teams looking to bounce back after defeats just before the international break.

Both sides will have their sights set on the top 10 this season, with both managers feeling as though this game will be winnable. This should make for an entertaining encounter on Sunday.

Southampton come into this match after a narrow loss away at Norwich at the end of August. Mauricio Pochettino's side had had a strong start to the season, winning away at West Brom before drawing with Sunderland at home.

The Saints then travelled to Barnsley in the Capital One Cup, comprehensively beating them 5-1. Betway price them as heavy favourites to bounce back with a win at 4/5 (1.80).

West Ham, like Southampton, lost their last match, with Stoke City beating the Hammers 1-0 at Upton Park. Sam Allardyce's men had picked up four points before the match, beating Cardiff City on the opening day, before drawing with Newcastle away from home.

Mirroring Southampton again, West Ham then won in the Capital One Cup against Cheltenham. Betway price them at 7/2 (4.50) to take all three points. The same firm price the draw at 5/2 (3.50).

With both sides in inconsistent form, it's tough to pick out a winner in this fixture. The bet that stands out the most is under 2.5 goals at 4/5 (1.80) with Betway.

This bet has landed in all three league fixtures for both sides this season, and is certainly worth backing. With West Ham struggling for attacking options due to injuries, you feel it could be a low-scoring affair on Sunday.
