Under 1.5 Goals In the Match Double
All 4 of these sides rank higher defensively than offensively this season.
With a Premier League weekend which builds up to a Super Sunday crescendo, expect some mediocrity on Saturday.
We’re backing under 1.5 goals in both the following matches at a combined best price of 6.34/1 with Betfair.
Huddersfield v WBA:
Town are going about their business just fine and had a season-defining victory over Man Utd in their last home game. But take that extraordinary result out and the Terriers have failed to score in 6 of their other 7 most recent games.
West Brom are desperate for a victory after 8 winless league encounters and they generally don’t score enough goals either. The fact that both sides are middling defensively only increases the chances of this one being incredibly tight.
Southampton v Burnley:
The side whose matches have produced the fewest goals in total (Burnley) meet a team who rank joint 2nd on the same metric (Southampton). 50% of both these sides’ matches have produced 1 goal or none at all.
The Saints are significant favourites here despite their opponents starting the day above them in the lofty heights of 6th. The Clarets have suffered just 1 loss in 8, and that was at the Etihad, so they are plenty capable of coming here to frustrate hosts again.
