Spurs 13/20

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

Southampton are capable of playing some good football and troubling the better sides on their day but for me they don’t put it together often enough and with Spurs looking to make up ground on the top 4 the Saints could be up against it here.

For a pick I’m looking for over 2.5 goals with Harry Kane and company always a major goal threat and the home side could also contribute.

Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 17/20
