CHRIS Graham (@ChrisGraham79) dips into the Asian Handicap market for his best bet in Super Sunday’s south-coast derby.
Southampton v Bournemouth | Sunday 16:00 | Sky Sports 1
One of my developing strategies this season has been to oppose Bournemouth and I’m not going to stop now.
Like the other two promoted sides they tend to go off to short in the betting for me and while I would flirt with taking them on when they were in a stronger positon in September I’m now passionately jumping all over their opponents!
As I’ve already discussed in recent weeks the side have been with a number of unfortunate injuries and this has naturally seen their performances decline. Four defeats in the last five has seen the fear of relegation rear it’s ugly head and they’ve haemorrhaged goals as well to Man City (five) and Tottenham (five) in their last two league games.
Southampton’s season has really started to take shape in recent weeks and they’re in the Top-8 after two wins in their last four games which involved a 3-1 taking apart of Chelsea.
After an encouraging win midweek in the Capital One Cup and a lovely jaunt up the league table I’m expecting them to be too strong for Bournemouth on Sunday and am happy to back them -1 on the Asian Handicap.
