Premier League, Saturday, 18/03/2023
It has a bit of a crisis duel about it. On Saturday afternoon, the Saints and Spurs face each other in the Premier League.
The home side urgently need points to get out of the bottom of the table. The visitors still have the competition breathing down their necks when it comes to the places in the top flight.
Due to the individual class, my Southampton Tottenham tip assumes that the Londoners will have the advantage
It was another damper for Southampton on Wednesday night. The coastal cities hosted the Bees from FC Brentford. As I predicted, it was the expected close game.
However, not with a better ending for the home side. Although they had much more possession, they only managed one shot on goal
In the meantime, under new coach Rubén Sellés, it has become clear how the team will play. First and foremost, the defence is to be strengthened.
Sometimes, however, this is still at the expense of the offensive. In the last two games, the Saints failed to score. Only against Leicester did they score under the new coach.
The mood of the visitors could be better at the moment. They have been eliminated in all national and international competitions.
In the Premier League, they still have a four-point lead. But the situation is deceptive. After all, Newcastle, their closest rivals, have one game less to play.
In this respect, Spurs would be well advised not to underestimate this opponent. And above all, they must finally end their negative streak away from home. They have lost four away games in a row.
So is there a chance for the Saints? In the double chance betting, various bookmakers are showing optimism in the Southampton Tottenham tip.
So we find, among others, at Betano sports betting odds of around 2.00 in case the home side remain unbeaten.
But they are also in a bit of a results crisis. If we look at the recent results in front of a home crowd, it quickly becomes clear why the club is in deep relegation trouble.
They have lost six of their last seven home games. Only Rubén Sellés’ debut was narrowly won 1-0 against Leicester back in the day.
The big question with the coastal city side will be whether they venture out of their shell and invest more in the game than just passion defensively.
For Spurs, it could be clear they are creating chances anyway. They have scored at least once in seven of their past eight games. How does it look for the Saints?
In the Southampton Tottenham betting tip, the bookmakers at Tipwin predict odds of around 1.50 should they score over 0.5 goals.
Undecided bookmakers are still when it comes to the question of goals on both sides. After all, that has not been the case in six of the last seven games involving Saints.
Some of the Londoners’ games this calendar year have also turned out to be one-sided. In eight of the eleven games in 2023, at most one team scored.
Accordingly, the predictions for goal bets in the Southampton Tottenham tip are still balanced. Accordingly, the game can tip into either side.
In five of the last six direct duels on the English south coast, both teams scored at least once. In total, four of the last five meetings have resulted in more than 2.5 goals.
This is what my betting friends predict again this time. Even though the home side are not in a strong form at the moment, there has already been an improvement in performance under Rubén Sellés.
For the guests, it is first and foremost about making amends. After their Champions League exit, they can now fully concentrate on the league.
This focus will be evident in the match, which is why my Southampton Tottenham tip is: Victory for Spurs & under 4.5 goals!
