|Sunday 21st January – 4.00pm||Odds||Won/Lost||Bet|
|Southampton v Tottenham|
| Half-Time And Full-Time Tottenham Win
|@ 33 / 20||
Relegation-threatened Southampton have only won two league games since 16th September and a run of 10 matches without success has seen them plummet towards the bottom-three in recent weeks.
It is no surprise to see that Saints, who have taken 13 points from 12 games at St Mary’s this season are 9/2 underdogs (Betfair) for this clash with an in-form Tottenham side that has won six of their last nine top-flight matches.
Spurs love this Southampton v Tottenham fixture too as they have won nine of the past 11 meetings (drawn one, lost one) and they are unbeaten in five at St Mary’s (won four, drawn one).
*Odds correct as of 19th Jan, 07:28. Odds are subject to change.
Spurs hammered Southampton 5-2 at Wembley when the pair last met on Boxing Day and they should be too good again, with Coral going 33/20 about a half-time and full-time Spurs win this weekend.
Dele Alli continued his fine run of scoring form in matches against Southampton last month and the England star has now scored in each of his four appearances against Sunday’s opponents, scoring five goals in total. The out-of-sorts Alli is 11/2 to be first goalscorer (Paddy Power).
Harry Kane has notched five in his last four against Southampton, including a hat-trick on Boxing Day, and he is 13/5 favourite to score first, while the in-form So Heung-Min, who has scored five in his last four against Saints, is 5/1 to open the scoring.
