Competition: Premier League
Market: Southampton to draw against Tottenham
Odds: 12/5 @ Bet 365
Southampton host Tottenham at St Mary’s in a vital Premier League clash this weekend. Both sides are fighting for a top-six finish, so Saturday’s fixture is the quintessential six-pointer in the race for Europa League football. Liverpool are currently 5th in the table, so the Saints and Spurs are slugging it out for one place essentially, unless poor form sees Liverpool slide down the league.
Tottenham boast the better form in past meetings, winning the last five games against Ronald Koeman’s side in the Premier League. Playmaker Christian Eriksen seems to enjoy coming up against the surprise package too, as he’s scored three times past them in the division.
The tail end of the season sees Southampton looking far less formidable than they were earlier in the campaign, with a lack of goals has cost them a place in the Champions League. Saints have scored just eight times in their previous 11 games. But they will be strong on home soil, which could give inconsistent Tottenham something to worry about.
Bet 365 are giving odds of 12/5 for the two sides to play out a draw this weekend, which keeps them both in contention for top-six, but could see Liverpool pull away and solidify their 5th-placed position.
