BTTS PREDICTION:

No at Evens with Betfred


REASONS FOR SOUTHAMPTON VS TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR BETTING TIPS

Southampton v Tottenham Hotspur is the final game of the post-Christmas Day round of Premier League matches and it’s a potentially crucial one for both teams.

Although Southampton are currently 8th in the table, it’s difficult to see them challenging for a Top 6 finish this season should they fail to secure a victory here given that they are currently 9 points adrift of that position.

As for Tottenham, they travel to the south coast already 13 points behind Chelsea and any remaining hopes of a title bid would surely be over were they to secure anything other than maximum points at St. Mary’s Stadium.

Going into this game, only table-topping Chelsea can boast a better defensive record than either of these two teams. This could be a tight, low-scoring encounter and it would be no surprise if goals were to be at a premium. No stadium has seen fewer top-flight goals than St. Mary’s this season, with just 13 in 8 matches to date.

Under 2.5 Goals looks likely here, although best odds of 7/10 at BetVictor indicate as much.  A better option might be to look at the half-time markets, with the 11/10 at bet365 on the match to be all square at the interval looking a decent punt, as does the prospect of it being goalless at the break at 17/10 with BetVictor.

Although Tottenham going into the game as narrow favourites, it might be worth remembering that Southampton have lost just one Premier League game in eight on home turf in the current campaign. By contrast, Tottenham have only had two victories in eight matches on the road and none in their last eight games in all competitions.

That suggests that it might be worth backing Southampton on the Asian Handicap off level ball (0). That’s exactly the same as backing them on the Draw No Bet market, so if the game ends all square, you get your stake back in full. That bet can be backed at 21/20 with bet365.

In terms of a Southampton v Tottenham correct score tip, then 0-0 has to be in with a shout at 8/1 with Skybet, although you are always better off backing No Goalscorer in these instances, just to give yourself a little additional security in case the only goal of the game happens to be an own goal. No Goalscorer can be backed on the first Goalscorer market at 8/1 with William Hill.
