Betting Tips for the game
Tottenham’s poor run at the Emirates Stadium continued with the team losing 4-2 against rivals Arsenal during the weekend. This result brought an end to six consecutive victories for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
Southampton were able to hold Manchester United to a 2-2 draw but even this impressive result was not sufficient to keep Mark Hughes in the job. Southampton are winless in the last eight matches across all competitions.
The recent game between Spurs and Southampton produced a 1-1 draw at the St Mary’s Stadium. The last meeting at the Wembley Stadium produced a 5-2 victory for Tottenham. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Tottenham.

Southampton may have undergone a managerial change that is unlikely to help them get anything out of this match. The Saints are quite poor in a number of areas of the pitch. Meanwhile, Tottenham will be eager to overcome the loss against Arsenal as soon as possible. A home match against one of the teams in the bottom three is a perfect recipe for the same. Spurs have generally done well against teams lower down the table and they also have recent momentum coming into this match. Our preview would go with a win for Spurs.

Tottenham vs Southampton draw odds: 5.25
Southampton win odds: 9.50
Correct Score odds
Spurs have not been rich in terms of goals but they have been able to dominate games with their immense quality. Southampton have struggled for goals throughout the campaign but there has been a seismic shift on this front with the team scoring over 1.5 goals in the last two matches. However, Spurs are unlikely to add to this momentum even if they are prone to conceding a goal. Our correct score prediction would go with Tottenham 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The game is likely to witness both teams scoring and majority of the recent head-to-head meetings between these two teams have produced over 2.5 goals in total. Spurs have been able to register only two clean sheets in the last nine games and this makes our total goals prediction go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Harry Kane has been able to get his season’s tally to 8 goals. He has been in impressive form – albeit aided by the ability to take penalties – with goals in six out of his last 10 appearances for club and country. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Harry Kane, who has six goals in seven league appearances against Southampton.
