Bet Of The Day May 17 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Liverpool have won eight of their last nine against the Saints
  • Nine of the last 12 meetings have been won to nil
  • Liverpool have won eight of their last 10 league matches to nil
  • Four of Southampton’s last six has only seen one team score

We’re off to the English Premier League for today’s best bet as Southampton and Liverpool butt heads at the St Mary’s with Liverpool hoping to keep their slim title hopes alive.

The Saints have found it tough going in recent weeks, claiming just one point in their previous four league matches coming against Burnley, Brighton, Crystal Palace & Brentford. All teams that are a similar quality to themselves.

Thankfully, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s outfit have secured their spot in the top flight for the 10th successive season, sitting six points above the drop.

Both teams not scoring seems to be a trend between these two sides, with nine of the last 12 meetings being won to nil, including the previous four.

Although it is Liverpool that will have a lot more to play for overnight, with the Champions League finalists sitting four points behind ladder leaders Manchester City with a game in hand and the final matchday fast approaching.

City’s dramatic draw against West Ham has left Jurgen Klopp’s side with some hope that a miracle can occur to keep the quadruple alive. Although they are coming off an FA Cup final triumph against Chelsea that went all the way to penalties.

Nevertheless, they have a commanding recent league record. The Reds have won eight of their last 10 league matches to nil and have also won eight if their last nine league matches against Southampton.

You can expect Klopp’s team to come out of the gates and dominate proceedings early and the Saints will find it hard to get past the stubborn Liverpool defence. So, therefore, another result to nil in Liverpool’s favour could be on the cards to bring the title race to the final day of the season.
