Jose Mourinho had a spring in his step after Tottenham’s win over Manchester City and will hope to maintain the momentum by seeing off Southampton in the FA Cup.
Spurs have won four straight Premier League encounters with Saints on home turf, although the visitors have grabbed at least one consolation goal each time.
Let’s go for that trend to continue by taking 23/10 for a home win and both teams to score as our first Tottenham vs Southampton prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Spurs and Saints both fielded strong line-ups when these sides played out an entertaining 1-1 draw in this competition at St Mary’s last month.
Son Heung-min put Tottenham ahead just before the hour mark, but Sofiane Boufal’s late equaliser earned Southampton a deserved replay.
A similar scenario is expected in London regarding playing personnel, but the feeling is that a switch in venue may tip the scales in Spurs’ favour.
They followed up with a gutsy 2-0 triumph over City, with new signing Steven Bergwijn and Son doing the damage in the second half after the Blues had dominated the opening period.
“The boys were fantastic, amazing spirit,” beamed Mourinho on the club website. “It was a difficult match, of course, and the three points so important.”
Mourinho has never shied away from chasing silverware in domestic knockout tournaments, doing well at Chelsea and Manchester United, and a potential home tie versus Norwich in round five will have peaked his interest here.
Spurs beat Middlesbrough 2-1 in a third-round replay and 15/2 for a repeat of that scoreline catches the eye from the Tottenham vs Southampton odds.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton must pick themselves up from Saturday’s 4-0 mauling at Liverpool, although they did play better than the bare result suggests at Anfield.
Saints probably should have been ahead at the break, considering the number of chances they created in an even first half, with a VAR penalty review also going against them.
“I enjoyed every minute from my team,” declared Ralph Hasenhuttl. “I wanted them to do what they did.
“Against the best team in the world, playing like this for 50 minutes is a massive signal.
“I wanted to see this game when we go 1-0 up – and the penalty decision is a crucial moment.”
Danny Ings worked tirelessly against his former club and was unlucky when one effort clipped the heel of team-mate Shane Long having looked destined to hit the back of the net.
Let’s have a saver on Ings to score the last goal in this game at 4/1 to finish off our Tottenham vs Southampton betting tips.
