The final match on Saturday and the final match from the Premier League in November. It takes place at St Mary’s Stadium as Southampton welcome Watford to town for a game that looks to be a real pick-em contest. Who will come out on top? Will home advantage make all the difference in what should be an even contest? We’ll find out soon enough.

In Line with the pre-season Expectations
Southampton weren’t expected to do much this season when we were previewing the campaign back in the summer and they really haven’t disappointed us so far. The Saints won only two of their first dozen games and that saw them sucked down to second bottom of the table. Three defeats in quick succession before the international break meant only Norwich was beneath them in the pecking order and The Canaries were just a point worse off. Despite that, the home win on Saturday night is 6/5 favourite at Unibet.
Watford haven’t been any better so far and as we took a quick break for the international break to allow England to round off their Euro 2020 qualifying group, The Hornets had managed only one win from 12 and were third from bottom, only goal difference keeping them above their hosts. The away day is 12/5 at bet365.
