Tough trip to St. Mary’s for Benitez’s Boys- The Odds

It’s an away trip to St Mary’s for Chelsea and they are 2.1 chances with Boylesports to beat Southampton and come away with all three points.
The stats are certainly good as far as the Blues are concerned as they are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games against The Saints (W4 D3).
They also come into the game on the back of two successive victories, and have lost just one of their last 6 matches in all competitions.
In the goalscorer markets Frank Lampard and Demba Ba look the two players to concentrate on.
Lampard has scored four goals in his last four Premier League appearances against Southampton and after netting his 200th goal in his last match is only two away from Bobby Tambling’s all-time Chelsea goal record.
He can be backed at a top priced 8 with bet365 to net the opener.
Demba Ba, who has scored three goals from four shots on target for Chelsea against Southampton in all competitions this season, is a 5.5 chance with Boylesports and Paddy Power in the first goalscorer market and a tasty looking 2.25 with Betfred to get on the scoresheet during the 90 minutes.
Another interesting stat is that Chelsea have scored the first goal of the game on 19 occasions this season – a Premier League high.
That suggests that the 1.73 on offer with Betfred for them to do so again is well worth a punt.
In the correct score market I like the look of a 2-1 win for Chelsea at odds of 8.5 with bet365.
