Premiership – Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview

Southampton come into this game on the back of a disappointing 2-1 defeat away to Stoke City. After a fantastic first half of the season the Saints have been on a decline since the New Year and that is mainly down to Graziano Pelle scoring a lot less often than he was at the beginning of the season. Nonetheless Ronald Koeman’s men can still gain a place in next season’s Europa League competition which would be a fantastic achievement for a club of their stature who must be awarded merit for their transfer business and youth academy policies that have seen them compete with top teams in the past two seasons.

Tottenham Hotspur approach this match on the back of a comfortable 3-1 victory away to Newcastle United. They’re in 6th place in the table on 57 points and Southampton sit in 7th place on 56 points so this game although not the last of the season could decide who gets the final Europa League place so I expect both sets of players to leave nothing on the pitch once the 90 minutes are up. Harry Kane recently became the first Spurs player to reach 30 goals in a season since Gary Lineker which is a great individual accolade and I am sure he will not stop their and will be going for the next milestone of 35 goals.

Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspur Current Betting Odds Market

Southampton are the clear favourites to win this match and are currently best odds of 11/10 with Ladbrokes – £25 Free Bets for New Customers. For me this seems to be a terrible price and not worth backing considering they haven’t beaten Spurs in their last 5 attempts.

The Draw doesn’t seem likely as these two teams haven’t drawn in their last 5 encounters with one another. I fully expect Spurs to win this game although a scored draw isn’t unforeseeable. BetVictor provide the best odds for the draw @ 5/2 – £25 Free Bets for New Customers.

Tottenham Hotspur are the stronger side in terms of ability and are definitely in better goal scoring form so I expect them to win this game by a margin of at least two goals with Harry Kane getting on the score sheet. BetVictor offer the best value for Spurs to win @ 3/1 – £25 Free Bets for New Customers.

Southampton vs Tottenham Hotspur Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

I would expect the hosts to lose this match and it is notable that their defending has worsened since losing Fraser Forster to injury. The Saints will know that this is a must win game if they’re going to land a place in Europe next season. This game could make or break their season and Mauricio Pochettino will certainly be hoping it breaks their season as he returns to his former club.

Tottenham Hotspur are level on points with Liverpool and are just a single point ahead of the Saints so they will be aware that there is still work to be done if they’re going to qualify for Europe again for next season. In order to keep the likes of Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen at the club they cannot afford to not be playing in Europe even though those 3 players are good enough to be playing in the Champions League.

My Banker is going to be Spurs race to 2 goals.

My saver is going to be Harry Kane to score the first goal of the game.
