Tottenham hosts Southampton at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on September 28, 2019.

“Soccer" Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur FC was established in 1882 and they are first club to accomplish the League and FA Cup double, accomplishing the feat during the 1960/61 season. The Hotspur successfully defended the FA Cup in 1962 and then went on to win the European Cup Winners Cup in 1963, the first win for any British club. In 1972, they won the inaugural UEFA Cup and overall, Tottenham has won at least one trophy in every decade from the 1950s to the 2000s, a feat only matched by Manchester United.

Tottenham finished with only one win in their final five matches last season and ended up in 4th place in the final EPL  table despite a strong start to their 2018-19 campaign. Still, they were able to qualify for the Champions League, where they made a run to the final and lost to Liverpool. Despite their slow finish, Tottenham can hold their heads high after displaying a consistency that has seen them earn a fourth straight Top 4 finish in the Premier League. With Mauricio Pochettino now in his sixth season with the Hotspur, much is expected from them this season.

Tottenham is currently ranked 5th in Goal Difference at +1 on the current season. They have scored a total of seven goals this season, which ranks them third in the league. Four of those seven goals scored were assisted and on the other side of the field, the Hotspur are tied for 10th in the Premier League with a total of six goals allowed in the current season.

Harry Kane is off to a strong start with three goals scored already this season for Tottenham. Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela, and Tanguy Ndombele each have contributed one goal each this year. Ndombele and Moura also have one assist each for Tottenham who are the soccer betting favorites to beat Southampton in this matchup.

What are the Moneyline Odds?







Odds from as of 9/19/19

“Soccer" Southampton

The Southampton Football Club are known as the Saints because they began as a church football team. The Saints were formed in 1885 and the club was among the founding members of the Premier League in 1992. The first decade in the top flight competition was a struggle as Southampton kept themselves busy trying to avoid relegation.

After playing 27 years in the Premier League, the Saints were relegated in 2005 but Southampton would return to the top flight after seven years and since then, have remained in the Premier League. 2018 was a rough year for them as they avoided regulation only during the final day of the season. Last season, Ralph Hasanhuttl led the club to a 16th place finish.

Southampton ranks 13th in the league in Goal Difference at -2. The Saints have scored just a total of four goals so far this term which is good for also 13th place in the EPL and they have produced a league 10th-best three assists so far this season. On defense, Southampton has given up a total of six goals which puts them in a tie for 10th place overall.

Jannik Vestergaard, Danny Ings and Nathan Redmond have found the back of the net with one goal each for Southampton this season. Ings, Kevin Danso and Sofiane Boufal have delivered the assists for the club. Meanwhile, Angus Gunn has a total of 15 saves in four matches and has conceded six goals this season.

“Soccer" Who Wins?

Southampton is currently ranked 10th in the EPL with a record of 2-1-2 SU on the season. The Saints have not lost a match after dropping their first two assignments of the season to Burnley and Liverpool. They beat Brighton in round 3, drew with Manchester United in their next match and then defeated Sheffield United in their most recent outing.

Tottenham is 2-2-1 SU on the season and they are ranked 3rd in the current EPL standings. The Hotspur opened the season with a win over Aston Villa, a draw with Manchester City and a loss to Newcastle. They have since posted a draw over Arsenal and are coming off a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Head to head, Tottenham has won 15 out of 27 matches. Southampton has beaten the Hotspur nine times with three other matches ending in a draw. Tottenham has won four out of the last six meetings between these two clubs but Southampton won their most recent match 2-1, last March 9, 2019.

The likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Tanguy Ndombele give Tottenham an elite scoring group that Southampton won’t be able to contain. The Hotspur have lost just once this season and I don’t think they will get a second one at home against Southampton. Prediction: Tottenham
