Spurs (-121) @ pinnacle

9* Tottenham Hotspur (1:00 ET): With all the drama surrounding Tottenham right now, they better come up with the full three points on Wednesday. On top of their recent middling form, the Spurs sacked manager Jose Mourinho and are a part of the big controversy over in Europe right now, that being the mass exodus to the proposed European Super League. But I’m not ready to give up on this side being able to finish in the top four in what could be their final season in the Premier League. Look for them to get the old “new manager bounce” when they play host to Southampton in this one.

With so much controversy currently circling around Tottenham Hotspur, it would be easy to forget that Southampton was just eliminated from the FA Cup with a 1-0 semifinal loss to Leicester City over the weekend. That about does it for the Saints’ motivation this season. They’ve lost 11 of their last 14 Premier League fixtures and are virtually guaranteed a bottom half finish in the table this season. They’re not really in danger of relegation though (nine points clear), so again it’s difficult to find where the motivation comes from this final month of the campaign. No team has fewer points since the turn of the year than Southampton’s 10.

Not saying it will be easy here Tottenham Hotspur in their first match under interim boss Ryan Mason. The club is winless in its last three EPL fixtures and won’t have top goal scorer Harry Kane. Six days from now the Spurs will seek to end their trophy drought in the EFL Cup Final. But if the players have any sense of pride, they’ll rise up here and get the win at home as they attempt to draw nearer to fourth place West Ham, who is currently up five points. They defeated Southampton 5-2 in the reverse fixture back in September. 9* Tottenham Hotspur

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
