Tottenham vs Southampton betting tips: Preview, predictions & odds

It has been a whirlwind couple of days for Tottenham after the sacking of José Mourinho and their part in the failed attempt at establishing a European Super League. With a Carabao Cup final at the weekend, Spurs come into their midweek program against a Southampton side that is in the midst of yet another disappointing season. If for no other reason, both clubs could really use the three-point haul if for no other reason that improved optics to review the season through.

Betting prediction: Tottenham 1-1 Southampton

Much of this prediction is hinged on the bet that star-man Harry Kane will be rested in the run-up to the Carabao Cup final at the weekend against Manchester City. If the England international is indeed rested in preparation for a chance at silverware, Tottenham loses a considerable amount of their attacking potency, and against a Southampton side that still needs to fight to ensure safety, it could be a tricky test. The managerial upheaval could play another role in which way the wind will blow here, but Saints could sneak a draw against a Tottenham outfit that has not won in their last three Premier League fixtures.

Result/Both Teams to Score: Draw – Yes

A risk, but a pretty solid reward if certain pieces fall into place. No Harry Kane (should he not be rushed into this with the weekend in mind), means Tottenham loses their talisman but are still likely to create more than enough to find a goal here. Southampton has all their key assets available while needing results to guarantee their safety in the Premier League, and can be tricky customers if they turn up. All things considered, a scoring draw is a possibility.

 

To Score Anytime: James Ward-Prowse

Probably not the name many would have thought considering the likes of Danny Ings, Che Adams, Son Heung-Min, or even Gareth Bale being on display, but England international midfielder James Ward-Prowse is a sneaky and logical bet. He sits joint-second in Southampton’s goal chart this term with seven goals to his name, just two behind club-leader Danny Ings. His lethality on set-pieces, and ability to strike a ball from range during the run of play, present a considerable goal threat.

Tottenham vs Southampton: Match preview

Tottenham immediately finds itself in turbulent waters faster than anyone could have imagined in the last 48-hours. With the fiasco of being a part of a failed attempted financial coup on the footballing world, and the sacking of José Mourinho added to the max, Spurs faithful are sure to have question on top of question in the coming days. The sacking of Mourinho came as an unexpected surprise to many, with the likes of Wayne Rooney and managerial adversary Thomas Tuchel speaking to their shock on the matter.

This may not have been a storyboard campaign, but Spurs are still in a cup final at the weekend, are in the top-seven in the league, and mathematically have a chance to finish in the European places for next season. Was sacking Mourinho the wise choice on the whole? That remains to be seen. How he will be replaced come the summer presents an even bigger question, though many would probably turn down the chance to argue against the notion that the Portuguese headmaster hardly was the right fit for the club both on and off the pitch overall.

In his place comes 29-year-old former Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason as interim manager until the summer, and the former Spurs asset has an immediate task to perform regarding a cup final performance and trying to keep the club in the hunt in the Premier League table. Though he has stated he is ready for the challenge ahead for the remainder of the season the task is a considerable one. Failure to capture any silverware, and/or missing out on Europe via their league finish, could spell a continued trying time at the club on the back of the failed Super League involvement. In a time where the future of the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min is constantly questioned amidst interest from the European elite, Mason’s task is to do just enough to try to keep the ship afloat before bringing on a more experienced pilot for the longer haul. Three points against Southampton would go a long way to keeping Tottenham on the right track.

Increased sponsorship shows Southampton may still have some fight left in them

The recent news that Southampton has recently signed fresh sponsorship terms with Coingaming Group – keeping Sportsbet.io as their main shirt sponsor – is important news for the club as they move into the final stages of yet another disappointing Premier League season. Currently sitting 14th in the table, but with an avenue to put a 12-point gap between themselves and the drop zone while potentially leapfrogging Crystal Palace into 13th, this is hardly the way Saints ownership – or its loyal fans – have envisioned things going for the south coast club.

There is so much to like about Southampton from a neutral standpoint. In Ralph Hasenhüttl, Saints possess a charismatic and passionate manager who is highly experienced and tactically savvy, while the club as a whole remains committed to producing quality players from their lauded academy set-up while also finding talent for value in an over-inflated transfer market. But from the inside looking out, and up, those in the Saints camp will be envious of the likes of West Ham United, Aston Villa, Leeds, and Leicester City. Clubs that were once in their same shoes but have since kicked on and made themselves considerable threats on the domestic front.

And it is not for lack of ability either. Southampton have quite a handful of players that bigger clubs would love to poach off their books, and this has historically been the case for years in the Premier League. The likes of Danny Ings, Che Adams, Stuart Armstrong, Jannik Vestergaard, Jan Bednarek, Ibrahima Diallo, and of course James Ward-Prowse, could all find happy homes in clubs that are further up the ladder than Saints. But a real lack of depth – and to be fair, consistency – has plagued the club since Hasenhüttl’s arrival. To no fault of his own, the brand of football that the Austrian has championed even before his arrival on England shores is one that works brilliantly but has struggled when injuries and congested fixture schedules have reared their ugly heads year on year. The new financial terms the club has signed could help with that very dilemma. Additional funds to put towards further recruitment to help alleviate the paper-thin squad on display at the St. Mary’s Stadium is sorely needed. But that funding will not matter if Southampton is incapable of performing for the rest of the season, and though relegation is likely to no occur, starting from scratch if they lose their best and brightest on the back of yet another disappointing season may be a set-back too many.

Tottenham team news vs Southampton

Interim boss Ryan Mason will have to keep the wind in the Tottenham sails after Spurs sacked José Mourinho. Luckily for the 29-year-old, the only guaranteed absentee for Wednesday is Ben Davies.

Both Matt Doherty and Harry Kane are doubts for selection, and with Tottenham coming up against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final, Kane may not be risked in preparation.

Southampton team news vs Tottenham

Ralph Hasenhüttl is without a trio of players for Southampton’s midweek clash, with Oriol Romeu, Will Smallbone, and Michael Obafemi all unavailable for selection.

Past those three absentees – none of whom would be in line for a start – Southampton have their best and brightest to choose from, including Danny Ings, Theo Walcott, and James Ward-Prowse.
