It should not be such an easy task for Mauricio Pellegrino’s side as the odds suggest since the Terries have been quite prolific up front as of late. The visitors will head into this on the back of two wins in last three league outings and they’ve moved three points clear off their counterparts in mid-table.

Whilst this summer’s acquisition Steve Mounie has mainly been responsible for the finishing touch so far in the season, goals came from other attacking figures against Watford at the weekend. David Wagner can be thrilled knowing that one of his main likes in the last term of Championship, Elias Kachunga, was the one who broke the deadlock at Vicarage Road. Additionally, Aaron Mooy completed a brace, while Laurent Depoitre got his name to the scoresheet as well.

The Saints managed to recover from a demolishing 1-4 loss to Leicester City ten days ago as they conceded only a single goal against the defending champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Interestingly, Pellegrino rested both Charlie Austin (came on as a sub) and Dusan Tadic for the clash with the Blues meaning that this duo should be ready to make the impact against the Terriers.

Southampton vs Huddersfield Town: Predictions

Both teams have strong attacking options at this point and none of them can be particularly proud of defensive displays in this term.

This is why we must see a massive value in backing the Over 2.50 goals pick at the odds of 2.05. Since the Saints have a strong imperative to bounce back here, we’ll also go for the home win & BTTS pick, priced up at the odds of 4.00.

  • Over 2.5 goals FT 2.05
  • Southampton to win & BTTS 4.00
