Tottenham Hotspur - Southampton Betting Preview: Expect plenty of goals at White Hart Lane

After a brave performance against Benfica in the Europa League, Spurs return to Premier League action against the Saints and our tipster is backing goals at a generous price
Tottenham Hotspur face Southampton on Sunday looking to bounce back from disappointment in the Europa League in midweek.

Despite a solid performance against Benfica, which saw them have chances to take the game to extra time, they eventually drew 2-2 in Portugal. With only the league to concentrate on now, they will be looking to get back to winning ways having tasted defeat in a couple of tough matches recently.

Tim Sherwood's side have had to face Arsenal and Chelsea in the last few of weeks, losing both of those matches. With the top four slipping away from Spurs, they desperately need a victory to keep up the pressure on those above them. bet365 price them at 23/20 (2.15) to take all three points.

Southampton have put some decent wins together over the last few weeks to cement their place in the top 10 of the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino's men beat Norwich City last time out, running out 4-2 winners. This followed up a solid away performance against Crystal Palace, with one goal good enough to secure the three points for them. bet365 price them at 12/5 (3.40) to win with the same firm pricing the draw at 23/10 (3.30).

When these sides met in the reverse fixture in December, Spurs were the 3-2 winners at St Mary's in a hugely entertaining game. Emmanuel Adebayor was the hero on that day, scoring twice. bet365 price the same scoreline at 33/1 (34.00) this time around.

Whilst this may have a slim chance of landing, a bet that seems more solid that paid out on that day is over 2.5 goals. The price of even money (2.00) that it pays out again seems like a generous one.

Despite failing to score against Arsenal, Spurs had netted in their last six home games and with Pochettino's men scoring in nine of their last 10 away games, expect goals in this match.  This bet would have landed in three of Saints and Spurs last four matches.
