Total Dominator - Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach English Premier League Rotation #200041 Saturday 10* Top Play OVER 3 goals -103 in Chelsea vs Southampton @ 10 AM ET - Chelsea struggled to stop opponents early this season but then fixed that with the addition of goalie Edouard Mendy. However, he will not be available for this one due to injury. That means goalkeeping duties fall to a struggling Kepa Arrizabalaga or 38-year old back-up Willy Caballero. Either way I like my chances for Southampton (known as road warriors last season) to at least get 1 (if not 2) into the back of the net here. Keep in mind Southampton was one of the top teams in the league last season on the road. They earned 31 points in the table in road fixtures (#3 in the league!) compared to only 21 points earned at home. Southampton averaged scoring 1.6 goals on the road and Chelsea scored an average of 1.6 goals on their home pitch. The key here is not only Mendy being out but Chelsea's attackers are getting healthy. Also, Southampton knows they need to attack and get shots on goal to take advantage of Mendy's absence. So this game will be played with more of an aggressive attacking style. Prior to Mendy helping Chelsea to post a clean sheet in their most recent fixture, Chelsea did allow an average of 2 goals in their first 3 matches this season. That said, a 3-2 final sounds about right here as Chelsea is a 2 to 1 money line favorite with good reason. Look for this one to be higher-scoring than one would have normally expected. 10* OVER 3 goals -103 in Chelsea
