Competition: Premier League
Market: Southampton to finish top-six
Odds: 5/6 @ Bet 365
Southampton enjoyed a 2-1 win away to Tottenham Hotspur on the weekend to go sixth in the Premier League with a game to play, and Ronald Koeman’s men are dreaming of Europa League participation if competitors West Ham and Liverpool fall short in their remaining games.
Currently sixth with 60 points from 37 games, the Saints are ending the season in brilliant shape. They have picked up four wins and a draw from their last five, and could all but seal their place in next season’s Europa League with a win in their remaining league game.
Both West Ham and Liverpool can still overtake them in the table as they have a game in hand, but the former have Manchester United coming to Upton Park, while Liverpool next face Chelsea. As a result, Southampton’s position could be unchanged going into the final outings, and would mean a win would seal a top-six finish.
The race for the Europa League is of course far from over, but Southampton couldn’t wish for trickier fixtures for their competitors to come up against. As a result, Bet 365 are giving odds of 5/6 for Southampton to finish in the top-six of the league.
Bet: Southampton to finish in the top-six of the Premier League this season @ 5/6 with Bet 365 >>
