As of this moment, the top of the English Premier League table looks like this:

Manchester United, 6 points
Huddersfield, 6 points
West Brom, 6 points

That's right - two games into the season and Huddersfield is sitting ahead of giants such as Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Sure, this almost certainly won't continue (though some people are putting money down on Huddersfield right now to win the English Premier League title, hoping that they are the next Leicester City), but you can't fault Huddersfield fans and players for wanting to cut the table out from the newspaper and hang it on the fridge.

This weekend, Huddersfield will look to keep the party going when they play host to Southampton.

Here are the odds for the match:

Southampton, 21/20
Draw, 23/10
Huddersfield, 11/4

Despite starting off the season with two straight victories, bookmakers aren't believers in the Huddersfield story, as the team is currently 11/4 to win in front of their home fans.

Here are the five likeliest outcomes of Saturday's match:

Draw 1-1, 11/2
Southampton 1-0, 6/1
Draw 0-0, 15/2
Southampton 2-1, 9/1
Southampton 2-0, 9/1

Momentum in football is a very real thing, and I can't help but think that Huddersfield at 11/4 offers tremendous value to punters, despite the fact that Southampton SHOULD win this game.

I believe that there is such a thing as a "hot hand" in sports, and you can't fault Huddersfield for playing with a bit of a bounce in their steps right now. The team will surely want to continue this ride, which could make them a tough team to play against this Saturday.

We will take Huddersfield at 11/4.
