Southampton vs Liverpool Bet Builder: Tuesday, May 17th
I’ve gone for a Tuesday evening bet builder at odds of 9.50, as Southampton play host to Liverpool and with the Merseyside men having dealt with a trip to Wembley just days before, they must now win to keep their faint title hopes alive.

Because going into their trip to the South Coast, there is no doubt that they are playing catchup in terms of the title race. Now though, it is a case of how much catchup they need to do before Tuesday comes around.
With the Anfield outfit starting the weekend lying three points behind league leaders Manchester City, that margin of error could well be doubled and if that is the case, then it simply would be win or bust for Liverpool.
If City win on Sunday at West Ham it would mean that they and Pep Guardiola have taken a huge step towards their fourth Premier League title win in just five seasons. While as far as Liverpool are concerned, maximum points against the Saints would at least take matters to the final day.
Of course, there could be a plot twist in all of this and if the current league leaders fail to get the better of the Hammers at the London Stadium, then it will breathe new life into the current chase for league honours.
Regardless of the ifs and maybes over the next few days, the simplest equation is that Liverpool require all three points and with Southampton acting as the opposition, there is arguably no easier way to obtain them.
With the Saints being on the beach in more than geographical terms, their campaign has all but ended and with just one point being earned from the last 12 on offer, hopes of a top-ten finish have long since diminished.
Not only that, but there is perhaps some pressure on the shoulders of manager Ralph Hasenhuttl and although odds of 10.00 for him to be the next Premier League departure are slightly too long for now, this is a market to keep an eye on.
Should Southampton get off to a bad start next season, then the Austrian’s head could be next on the chopping block and with James Ward-Prowse’s future also being up in the air, a slump down the table is not what this club needs right now.
That though is not of Liverpool’s concern and even after an outing in the FA Cup final, they should have more than enough in the tank on Tuesday. Therefore, backing a halftime/fulltime win at odds of 2.10 comes highly recommended.

WHAT IS A BET BUILDER?
A bet builder is a kind of accumulator bet solely focussed on one match. A standard acca features multiple selections across different selections combined together into one bet. If one selection loses, the whole bet loses. A bet builder is similar but each selection is placed on the same match. Similar to the American prop bet, the bet builder goes into detail on a single match. Common selections include match outcome, total goals, cards, corners, and players to score.
