Southampton vs West Brom by EPL specialist
Southampton would be considered the better team who deserve to be there, while West Brom surprised to be in this position. However, based on performances, both teams are probably fairly in this position.
I think the odds for a Southampton win are too low, and I think West Brom have a good chance to get a point in this much.
West Brom are a pretty consistent side. They tend to beat the weaker sides, they draw vs the sides in middle of the table and lose against the bigger teams.
In their last 4 matches, they played Chelsea, Man Utd, and Arsenal, and they came into those matches looking to defend well and avoid conceding. They almost did that against Chelsea and Arsenal, but conceded late goals to lose 1-0.
I think they will try the same against Southampton, but I think they will succeed in getting their point this time, because Southampton are missing their top scorer Charlie Austin, and are not as dangerous in their attack - only scored 18 goals this season, in 18 matches (& Austin scored 6 of them)
I am expecting this to be a tight match. I think this match is likely to end 0-0. I will go the draw, as 1-1 is also a pretty good possibility. There is the danger of 1-0, but I think the odds are worth taking for a draw!
