Southampton will feel rightly aggrieved after last weekend, when Abdoulaye Doucoure handled the ball into the net late on to give Watford an equaliser at St Mary’s Stadium, further extending The Saints’ winless streak and leaving them just a point above the relegation zone in the Premier League.
This was Southampton’s tenth consecutive league game without a win, and whilst five of those have ended all square, their complete inability to see out a win is becoming very worrying indeed for the St Mary’s faithful.
Things only barely get better on home soil as well, where Southampton have won just three Premier League games this season and have lost four times. Fortunately for them they have managed to end their goal drought at home and have scored in each of their last five, but defensively they have let themselves slip and now face a Tottenham side in fine form.
Spurs thrashed Everton 4-0 last weekend, with a brace from Harry Kane continuing his own fine scoring record. The records keep tumbling for Kane, and after hitting 20 in the league already this season he’ll definitely be looking for more. Eight of these goals have come in Spurs’ last five league games as well, so backing him to find the net here looks a great value offering for our anytime goalscorer predictions.
150/1 Southampton vs Tottenham #OddsOnThat
Tottenham’s win over Everton last weekend makes it five without defeat in the league, and they have won six of their last eight. During this time they’ve scored an impressive 23 goals, but defensively they aren’t quite where they were last season and they have shipped eight goals during this period.
More importantly, they have revived their away form in the last few weeks. Their 2-0 win over Swansea at the start of January made it back to back away wins, breaking them out of a dismal five match winless streak on the road. Despite that poor run, Spurs have still won six of their 11 away days this season, and given their recent form, we think backing them to get another win here is a very good move.
We aren’t expecting to see a clean sheet from the visitors though, especially given their recent defensive record. Southampton have become adept at grabbing a goal at home recently, so backing Tottenham to Win and Both Teams to Score alongside a 3-1 correct score predictions looks a promising prospect.
