Southampton make the trip to West Bromwich Albion on Monday night looking for their second win in the Premier League – but the Tipster is backing Romelu Lukaku to heap further misery on Nigel Adkins’ side.

Our resident betting expert is predicting a Baggies victory, with over 2.5 goals and both teams to score in what should be an exciting game between two attacking sides.

Lukaku to score any time for West Brom v Southampton – 5/4

The 19-year-old has started two Premier League games and scored on both occasions this term and also netted from the bench against Liverpool. The Beglium striker, on loan from Chelsea, scored in his last outing at Newcastle United, and with doubt over Shane Long’s fitness, Lukaku should start against Southampton. The Tipster’s opening bet is Lukaku to score at a solid 5/4.

West Brom to beat Southampton – 7/10

West Brom are in top form at the Hawthorns, with four wins in five attempts and their only loss coming to defending champions Manchester City. The Baggies were impressive before succumbing to the Citizens’ late show, so West Brom to beat Southampton is very tempting at odds of 7/10.
Bet365 odds

Over 2.5 goals in West Brom v Southampton – 2/1

Southampton’s defensive weaknesses have been well-documented this season – they’ve conceded 26 goals in nine games. To make matters worse, 16 of those goals have come away from home and there have been at least three goals in each game away from St Mary’s! Over 2.5 goals between West Brom and Southampton is therefore tremendous value at 2/1.
Bet365 odds

Both teams to score in West Brom v Southampton – 8/13

Both sides have scored in West Brom’s last four league games – and the same has happened in eight of Southampton’s nine games. Furthermore, the Saints are yet to keep a clean sheet this season as they struggle to adapt to life in the top flight. So both teams to score is a good shout at 8/13.

The long shot: West Brom to score over 3.5 goals – 11/2

Southampton have conceded at least three goals in their four away matches this season, shipping four at West Ham United and six at Arsenal. Meanwhile, West Brom have already beaten Liverpool 3-0 and put three past an impressive Everton side at home. With all that in mind, The Tipster’s long shot for this edition is West Brom to score over 3.5 goals at 11/2.
