Leagues Tipped:

Having delivered winning selections in each of his last three featured columns, SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Southampton's Premier League clash with Newcastle at St Mary's on Thursday night.

Southampton vs Newcastle (Thursday, 19:30)

Newcastle will be looking to stretch their Premier League unbeaten run to nine matches when they meet Southampton at St Mary’s on Thursday night.

The Magpies’ hopes of top-flight survival have been handed a massive boost after a fine run of form, with their most recent success coming against Brighton in a 2-1 win at St James’ Park on Saturday

Despite crashing to a 4-0 defeat at Aston Villa last time out, Southampton are also enjoying a positive campaign, with Ralph Hasenhüttl ‘s side firmly in the mix in the race for a top 10 finish.

Dipping into William Hill‘s Build Your Odds feature, it's the Even-Money (1/1) about over zero Newcastle goals and Newcastle with a + 1 start on the handicap that caught my eye.

The visitors look a more threatening attacking unit under Eddie Howe’s tutorship and their recent resurgence suggests they're more than capable of keeping this clash competitive.

Not only have Newcastle notched in each of their last eight league games, but they have also struck at least once in 21 of their 26 top-flight tussles this term to date.

What’s more, the Toon have tightened up considerably at the back, conceding one goal or fewer in each their last eight matches, and that has also helped transform their fortunes.

Whilst Ralph Hasenhüttl has a talented group of players at his disposal, the hosts have been far from watertight at the back this season.

Southampton have kept their sheets clean in just seven of their 27 Premier League games this season so far, with the Saints shipping at least one strike in 15 of their last 17 matches across all competitions.

With that in mind, coupled with the fact that the aforementioned combination has clicked in each of Newcastle's last eight league games, supporting the same play at St Mary’s stands out at Even-Money (William Hill).
