Southamptons Perfect record under Threat at leicester City on Saturday

Few would have predicted Southampton to be top of the Championship after 4 matches with a 100% record and 12 points, many would have forecast that Leicester would have had more than the four points they have managed to accumulate thus far.

The Championship has been strange to say the least so far, many results going against expectations, so which way will it go on Saturday when Southampton travel to the King Power Stadium in Leicester to take on Sven Goran Eriksson expensively assembled squad. Should it be that we expect the South Coast team to trouble to Foxes or indeed should it be that the home win for the pre season championship favourites should be the call?

It's a real conundrum for sure. Leicester have lost both of their home games so far, could they possibly make it three in a row? Southampton have now won ten consecutive league matches, home and away, have won 18 of their last 20, losing once and drawing another. No matter what division that has been achieved in, it is an impressive run and one that can only continue to build confidence in the side.

We are not sure what to make of the game either. The draw looks to be the call, at a shade under 5/2, Overs looks a good bet given that the home side here have conceded twice in thier last four games, whilst the Saints just keep scoring, and putting those two thing together give me a push toward a small stakes speculative bet on a 2-2 correct scoreline at a general 14/1

Recommendation: Draw @ 3.4 - OVER 2.5 @ 1.90 and take that 15 for a 2-2 final score. It could be a jackpot!
