A fierce local derby which are always hard to predict. Form and stats go out the window in local derbies and I usually would never bet on 1, X or 2. But this is the best team that Southampton will face for many years. Bournemouth are on fire at the moment and more so at home. They create chances and get results, beating Liverpool, Everton and drawing with Tottenham in recent weeks, some of the best sides in the league. They beat the Saints 2-0 at home last season to prove they can match their biggest rivals, and now with a better team and good form they can do it again. Manager Howe has managed and played this derby many many times, he knows what this means and how to win it.


I have no doubt Southampton will compete, they always do, but they dont score many away from home. Manager Puel's first derby game in England will be an expierence he has rarely come across. Both teams to score at 1.9 does tempt me, but with Bournemouth keeping a clean sheet against Leicester, Tottenham, Everton and West Brom in recent weeks at home, they can finally rely on quality to win them games. A tight game which will probably be won by a single goal, home advantage with insurance means this is a bet I likepin
