The English Premier League is so competitive that basically all 20 teams have something to play for. In this case, Southampton must win to get out of the relegation zone. As for Tottenham, the Spurs must win to remain in the top four. They could even climb to third with a victory. As expected, the visitors are in control of the soccer lines, but again, Southampton doesn’t have much margin for error.
Southampton: Last Place
Midweek, Southampton missed a great opportunity. It played host to Brentford, where a victory would have boosted it to 16th place. However, the Saints lost 2-0 despite winning possession with 67%, remaining in last place.
Southampton has won more games on the road than at home. Nevertheless, it managed to defeat Chelsea at St. Mary’s stadium. It also snatched a point from Arsenal. Those are two very similar teams to Tottenham. Last Sunday, the club drew 0-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford, adding another road win.
James Ward-Prowse is the main reason to consider wagering on the home side. He’s the team’s top scorer with six goals despite playing in midfield. There’s also the +350 price they’re offering in the sportsbook to win straight up.
Last week, Tottenham was eliminated from the UEFA Champions League by AC Milan, meaning all the Spurs have left is to finish in the EPL top four. Winning it isn’t an option because they’re 18 points behind Arsenal.
Focusing on only one competition should be good for the Spurs, who defeated Nottingham Forest 3-1 on Saturday, with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min as the scorers. Kane scored a brace.
Kane is the team’s top scorer with 20 goals. Only Erling Haaland from Manchester City has scored more than him, with 28. Heung-min has scored six. Beyond numbers, we’re talking about one of the deadliest duos in Europe.
Regarding the latest soccer odds, the Spurs are offering a -125 price. Win or lose, they scored in eight of their last 10 road games, winning four of those matches and keeping a clean sheet three times.
