Southampton is the clear favourite based on their current form and home advantage. Their defense was rock solid and they were clinical in front of goal. However, Blackburn should not be underestimated. This team is tough to break down and has the offensive talent to cause the Saints problems.

Southampton FC vs Blackburn Rovers odds & betting tips


  • Southampton winner: The Saints are strong favourites, with odds hovering around 1.60-1.70. Their impressive 13-game unbeaten streak, including a four-game winning streak at home, makes them a tempting choice.
  • Blackburn will win: Rovers are underdogs but should not be underestimated. They are just two points away from the playoffs and have shown good away form in the past. Their odds are around 5.00 to 5.50, offering a potentially high payout.
  • Draw: A stalemate is also a possibility, with odds around 3.50-3.70. Both teams have strong defences, and Blackburn could do with a point against a strong opponent.

Betting Tips:

  • Southampton will win but with both teams scoring (BTTS): taking advantage of Saints’ dominance at home while recognizing Blackburn’s attacking threat could be a good strategy.
  • Over 2.5 goals: Both teams have shown offensive capabilities lately, so this could be a game with lots of action.
  • Blackburn to score in first half: Rovers are known for their fast starts, and scoring an early goal could disrupt the Saints’ rhythm.
  • Samuel Edozie will score at any time: The young striker is on fire, scoring as a substitute in his last match. He could be rewarded with a start and could be a good bet.
