Sunderland v Southampton Preview

FA Cup | Saturday 15 February | Stadium of Light | 14:45

To Win (90mins)
Sunderland 18/10 
Draw 24/10
Southampton 29/20

Sunderland have looked a new team in recent weeks, energised, determined, dynamic - until the weekend that was.

An insipid performance against Hull was enough for me to want to break something.

As it was, I calmed myself down and figured that I’d make some money back when they face Southampton in the cup.

I’m not saying the Saints are an easy win but Sunderland seem a bit of a cup team under Gus Poyet.

He knows a fair bit about cup runs himself, having been part of the Chelsea team of the late 90’s.

The teams met not so long ago, with a 2-2 draw the outcome in a match that resembled the insanity of the cup.

In fact the last three meetings between these two have been draws, but I expect the atmosphere at the Stadium of Light to tip the scales in the Black Cat’s favour.

Betting Prediction: SUNDERLAND 18/10
Back Sunderland at 18/10.
