Southampton face tough Leicester test, Man United must bounce back at Bournemouth

Southampton face tough Leicester test, Man United must bounce back at Bournemouth
From ESPN - April 16, 2018

It was another solid weekend for the column after our both teams to score treble obliged in the Premier League. The top flight action continues in midweek with several games, including Thursday's crunch clash for Southampton against Leicester City.

Running total: --48.98

The Home Banker

Southampton's survival hopes suffered a hammer blow at the weekend as they lost 3-2 against Chelsea. They are now five points from safety with just five games to play and face a really tough assignment on Thursday as they travel to Leicester. The Foxes have been pretty consistent at the King Power this season and look tempting here at 5/4 against a struggling Saints side. Defensively Southampton have looked all over the place in recent weeks and may struggle to cope with the trickery of Riyad Mahrez or the pace of Jamie Vardy.

Selection: 4 on Leicester to win at 5/4 with bet365

The Tasty Treble

Tottenham (1/2) travel to the AMEX on Tuesday night and look worthy favourites against Brighton. Spurs were outplayed by a ruthless Manchester City side at the weekend but know a win would all but seal a top four finish and should be too strong for a Brighton side who have been leaking a few goals recently. On Thursday it could pay to back the draw at 12/5 when Chelsea travel to Burnley. The Clarets are enjoying a remarkable season and are such a tough side to beat, especially at Turf Moor. Throw in Leicester at 5/4 to see off Southampton and there's a treble paying better than 10/1 with bet365.

Selection: 2 on the treble at 10.47/1 with bet365

The Euro Wager

Barcelona travel to Celta Vigo on Tuesday evening where Luis Suarez can be backed at 3/1 to score first. The Uruguayan has scored 30 goals in all competitions this season and was on target as Barca beat Valencia 2-1 last time out.
