Southampton will visit Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this coming Wednesday for a Premier League fixture with home side Tottenham. Neither Tottenham nor Southampton managed a breakthrough, when they last faced each other in the Premier League. They ended up settling for a point in a 1-1 and the best betting odds on a draw at full-time with the bookies are at 4.00.

Southampton currently occupy number 12 in the league table, having collected 25 points after 22 rounds. The home side is number seven on 36 points, two matches behind the visitors, though.

Tottenham have their eyes set on a good performance and, more importantly, three points, when facing Southampton. On home soil, the former should have the upper hand, as they aim to move inside the top six.

Tottenham enter their next Premier League match, averaging a decent 1.7 goals per game in their last 10 matches. They scored a moderate total of 17 goals, while also conceding eight goals. That amounts to an average of 0.8 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring five times.

Three points for Southampton could go a long way in their quest to reach the top half of the Premier League table. A difficult task awaits, though, as Tottenham won't go down without a fight.

The Saints travel to their next Premier League match, averaging a lowly 1.5 goals per game in their last 10 matches. They scored a disappointing total of 15 goals, while also conceding 20 goals. That amounts to an average of two per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring zero times.

Tottenham vs Southampton Preview

Tottenham Form

Tottenham are a bit back and forth at the moment, but at least mostly forth, as they beat Leicester by 3-2. Following that up proved too difficult, as they lost 2-0 against Chelsea, before claiming three points in a 3-1 win against Brighton. Tottenham managed a strong return of four wins from their previous six matches on home soil in the Premier League. They scored 12 goals and conceded six times and posted a record of 4-1-1.

Southampton Form

It is not all bad, but it is not fantastic either for Southampton now. They started by losing 3-1 at the hands of Wolves, before drawing 1-1 with Manchester City. They secured a win in extra-time in the FA Cup, beating Coventry 2-1. Southampton only have one paltry win to show from the last six away games in the league. These six matches produced a record of 1-1-4, as they were outscored by 16-7.

Tottenham scored 18 goals and conceded eight in their last 11 games against teams from the bottom half of the Premier League table. They collected 26 points and eight victories. Southampton won 1 match and picked up 10 points from their last 13 encounters with teams in the top half of the Premier League. They scored 11 goals and conceded 22.

A home win for Tottenham is the obvious choice at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. With the attacking qualities on display here, it has the makings of a high scoring affair when Southampton come visiting.

Tottenham vs Southampton H2H

Betting on the draw would have earned you a sound profit the last time Spurs played Southampton at St. Mary's Stadium. The pair split the points in a 1-1 match, where no one managed to get the upper hand. Tottenham enter the match against Southampton with a 6-2-2 record in their previous 10 encounters in the Premier League.

A record worth keeping in mind before you make a choice for your next accumulator, depending on your betting strategy.

The past 10 matches between Tottenham and Southampton have largely been entertaining affairs. Over 2.5 goals came out a winning bet seven times in these encounters. It seems only natural to look for goals on Wednesday. Over 2.5 goals is best priced at odds of 1.65 with the bookies.

Match Prediction

When looking for in-form players, we can find some interesting names in both teams. In the home team, there is Harry Kane who is bringing great form to the upcoming game as he is now on four goals in his last six games. If he starts on Wednesday, Tottenham will surely expect him to score one or two and help claim the expected three points against Southampton. In the opponent's team, James Ward-Prowse seems to be in a comparable goal-scoring form since he has four goals in his last six games on his account. However, James Ward-Prowse will have it difficult against the hosts and it is rather risky to predict if he scores again on Wednesday even if he appears in the starting line-up. Therefore, we would side with Harry Kane to score in this game instead.

Tottenham were able to win seven of their previous 10 home games across all tournaments, while drawing one of the games. They suffered defeat in two of these outings. Southampton won three of their last 10 games away, drew one and suffered defeat in six of the games in this run. Southampton will feel optimistic about scoring on Wednesday with Tottenham managing a measly three clean sheets in the previous 10 home games. The visitors fought their way to one clean sheet in their previous 10 away games.

Over 2.5 goals came out seven times in the last 10 encounters between these two teams. Tottenham managed an average of 2.2 goals, with Southampton averaging 1.3 goals in these.
