Tottenham restored some pride in their Europa League tie at Benfica but there’s no denying that Tim Sherwood’s boys don’t look entirely convincing at present and they don’t catch the eye at 5/4 with bet365 to get the better of Southampton at White Hart Lane.
Saints are 3/1 courtesy of BetVictor to damage Spurs’ chances of getting back into Europe next season and that price looks a touch on the high side but while the hosts are struggling at present, they’re no pushovers and subsequently the stalemate looks the best bet in North London at 12/5 (bet365).
William Hill mark 6/1 against it finishing one-each but Tottenham are hardly prolific scorers on their own patch and it’s not entirely out of the question for the deadlock to remain unbroken (17/2, Stan James).
Certainly a match tally of fewer than 1.5 goals stands out at 23/10 with betway, for punters not sure about backing an inconclusive affair and it’s a generous 7/4 at Winner.com for the contest to be goalless at the half-time whistle.
