It’s always a little awkward coming face-to-face with an ex. Especially an ex who hasn’t let themselves go. Not that Mauricio Pochettino will be having any doubts about his decision to move to London but it’s always nice to know you’re being missed.
Right now Ronald Koeman is doing an excellent job with the seasiders and arrives at White Hart Lane second in the Premier League. However since they returned to the top flight the Saints have yet to take a point off of Spurs. Four games, four single goal defeats.
Both games finished 3-2 to Spurs last season, a repeat of which pays out at a tasty 22/1. Due to the Saints’ good form over the early part of the season Tottenham are odds against at 6/5 to win this game. They’re still the favourite to take all three points but that’s a decent price for a home game.
Paddy Power can do better than that though. Exclusively for The Spurs Web readers Paddy Power is offering you 5/1 on Spurs beating Southampton this Sunday. That’s like buying Gareth Bale back for a tub of jellied eels, or some other inexpensive, lazy London stereotype.
Okay that may be a slight exaggeration but 5/1 on Spurs beating Southampton is still the best Premier League bet of the weekend.
Given Southampton’s current form and the recent results between the two teams, Spurs to win by exactly one goal at 11/4 looks a good bet. Five of Spurs’ last six wins over Southampton have come by a single goal.
Looking at the goalscorer options Nacer Chadli is the stand out name as far as what he’s done this season. With four goals, including the opening strike in the 1-1 draw away to Arsenal last week, he’s certainly worth a look at 15/2 to score first and 12/5 to score anytime.
Emmanuel Adebayor leads the market at 11/2 to score first and 13/8 to score anytime. He scored a brace at St Mary’s last season and is a solid bet should he start.
Christian Eriksen also bagged a double against Southampton last season, in the 3-2 win at White Hart Lane. He looks like he’s really starting to find his feet in the Premier League and at 9/1 to score first and 3/1 to score anytime he offers good value.
Not as good as the 5/1 on Spurs to win this game though. This price is exclusive to The Spurs Web readers and like a shot of penicillin after a two week holiday in Ibiza, it’s best taken sooner rather than later.
