Leeds vs. Southampton 1:00 PM | Tue, Feb 23 2021
Sport: Premier League | Star Rating: 8.0 Evaluation: Win (800) - Final Total 3
Over 2.5 (-150) @ bet365

Daytime TV Dominator - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach EPL Tuesday 8* OVER the total in Leeds United vs Southampton @ 1 ET - Leeds average match this season results in 3.5 goals scored. That said, the ability to get this one at 2.5 or 2.75 goals is a value too good to pass up on. I know 3 goal totals are available out there as well but I will reduce my rating to an 8* here and lay a little extra juice so that I can turn 3 into a "win number" with this one. Leeds United is off a 1-0 loss to Wolverhampton but felt they deserved better with 19 shots (including 8 on goal) in that bitter defeat. Southampton enters this match with their matches averaging about 3.5 goals when on enemy pitch this season. Southampton is off a 1-1 draw with Chelsea and, the way Chelsea has been playing that is an impressive result. Prior to that result, Southampton had averaged 1.7 goals per match their 3 preceding matches. Couple that with the fact that Leeds is known for playing an attacking style even at the risk of creating exposure for their own defense, and you have the perfect set up for a high-scoring match here. It has also been quite some time since these foes have met and the lack of familiarity plus style of play should lead to great scoring chances in this one. 8* OVER the total in Leeds United


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
