IT has been a rollercoaster season for Southampton but they now stand just two games away from a Premier League return and will be confident of beating West Bromwich Albion at home in their play-off semi-final.

The tie is locked at 0-0 after a tense first leg but Saints are 4/5 favourites with Bet365 for a win at St Mary's in the second leg.

Russell Martin's men went on a 24-game unbeaten run earlier in the season but their campaign has also included three separate spells where they slumped to at least three defeats in a row.

West Brom's season has also been up and down but Carlos Corberan has them playing some decent stuff and they are more than capable of winning at St Mary's if they hit top form.

Southampton vs West Brom Top Betting Tips

I was surprised we failed to see a goal in the first leg given both teams boast plenty of attacking talent. Hopefully, this game will be a bit more lively, and I'm expecting Southampton to attack with a packed stadium, roaring them on. Over 2.5 goals pays evens, and that bet landed when West Brom last came to St Mary's.

Adam Armstrong has been Southampton's main man up front, netting 21 times, and he looks good at 7/4 for anytime scorer. We could also see a few corners after 16 were racked up in the first leg, with over 11 flag kicks paying 6/4.

Cards are another market worth exploring with the stakes so high and West Brom's Kyle Bartley is 5/2 to go into the book for a 13th time this term.

Raith Rovers vs Partick Thistle Betting Tips

The play-off semi-finals also come to a conclusion in the SPFL Championship tonight and Raith Rovers are in the driving seat against Partick Thistle.

I fancied Thistle to edge the first leg with home advantage but it was the Kirkcaldy side who came out on top with a 2-1 win.

Going for goals brought up one of our Super Singles on Tuesday so that looks the best option again. Combining BTTS and over 2.5 goals pays 11/10 this time.

Spartans vs Dumbarton Tips

Dumbarton also defend a 2-1 lead against Spartans as they bid to reach SPFL League One by finishing the job in the capital tonight.

Bet365 make the Sons 4/11 hot favourites to qualify and that's probably because they won 6-2 on their last visit to Ainslie Park just two months ago.

But there's only a goal-deficit to overhaul in this play-off final so Spartans could be worth a tentative punt at 2/1 to qualify in what should be another close game.

Fiorentina vs Napoli Top Betting Tips

Fiorentina are gearing up for the Conference League Final but still have three domestic games to complete and tonight's clash with Napoli will be crucial to guaranteeing a European place for next season.

La Viola will qualify for the Europa League if they beat Olympiacos in the showpiece, but they currently occupy only an eighth-place Conference League spot in Serie A.

Napoli are just two points behind, albeit having played a game more, so will be looking to jump above them with a win in Florence. Bet365 price the Naples giants at 19/10 but they are on a five-game run without a win.

We should see goals and combining BTTS with over 2.5 strikes pays 20/21. The half-time draw also appeals at 5/4.

Friday's Football Tips: Super Singles

  • Over 11 corners in Southampton 6/4 Bet365
  • BTTS and over 2.5 goals in Raith v Partick 11/10 Bet365
  • HT draw in Fiorentina v Napoli 5/4 Bet365

      Nobody forced you to follow my single.
      Fact is if you followed mine daily you would be up a fair bit. Also 9 of their last 10 h2hs have seen this result come in and it also happens fairly regularly for both. Nobody wins every time. Maybe stick with your own picks going forward

    Southampton v West Brom
    Under 2.5 goals at 1/1 (NAP)
    Under 1.5 goals at 3/1
    No goal at 10/1

    Game decided on penalties at 11/2

    Highly unlikely we’ll see a repeat of the Leeds game here, should be a tight match on paper.
    Best of luck

    Bad day today. Sorry anyone that followed.
    Can assure you I always research the fixtures I go with but would suggest everyone does their own research too and don’t just follow blindly. I won’t win every time no matter how much I would love to.
    If you ever doubt my tips then you shouldn’t follow. There are plenty of other very good tips on here to go with.
    Off to do some research for tomorrow and will probably stick with a single. Good luck everyone waiting on results

      Don’t worry about it – while bets based on stats usually win in the long run, you can get some really weird results.

      For example, that Qarabag game. Pre match odds Qarabag 1.22, Turan 7/1.

      On paper, Turan virtually useless – yet were leading in the second half and the match ended 4:3 (when Turan should have been lucky to score 1 goal – let alone 3 of them!)

    • jamesylfc 2 weeks ago

      Don’t ever apologise mate or feel you need to explain yourself.
      You put up whatever tips you feel, be it researched or not, it’s not down to you who follows. Some people will be silent when you’re winning but quick to criticise when you lose!

      6
    • noob gambler 2 weeks ago

      Completely agree. On paper qarabag should’ve walked that game.
      While research helps massively it doesn’t guarantee results. Like you said, anything can happen and matches don’t always go the way you hoped.
      I’m happy carrying on the way I am and will continue to post what I’m doing as it seems to be working for me. I don’t force anyone to follow what I’m doing and can’t guarantee a win every time.
      But like I replied to someone earlier if he had followed all my tips he would be up and I can’t do much more than that 😊

    • noob gambler 2 weeks ago

      You’re right James thanks.
      Funny how that works hey. Many are very quiet when they win then all of a sudden they lose and see that as a chance to complain.
      If someone has lost following my tips then it means I’ve lost too as I only post what I’m betting on.

    • Oscarsal 2 weeks ago

      Noob u don’t owe anyone apology for a loss bet and neither should u respond to any negative comments from anyone cos u did not force anyone to play ur posted bets. Some people are just to critics people losses and wonder if they have take time out to research game. I for one have won more tailing ur bets and once any lose I just move on cos I know u will bounce back with winners. Please ignore negative people.

    ✅️
    1-2 in Scotland at halftime and 0-3 in the Netherlands om 60 minutes.
    Bet hasn’t been settled yet with Ladbrokes as after the 3rd NAC goal went in the Roda fans have started throwing things on the pitch, followed by the players walking off the pitch.

    Don’t normally post on here bur read it every day.
    Some very good people post some very good tips, thank you.
    Don’t understand people who have a go when tips lose, whats your problem?
    Pick yer own if you’re going to complain if a tip loses.
    Anyway was at Pittodrie on Wednesday and Luvi are worst team to play there in a long time. Manager has said most players have downed tools and wont be there next seasin.
    With Hibs legend Davud Gray in charge surely a Hibs win on Sunday.

    Good luck to all and STAND FREE
