Tottenham Hotspur vs. Aston Villa – English Premier League, May 19, 2021

This could end up being Harry Kane’s last game at home for Spurs as he has announced that he may be forced to leave the club in the summer to attain success.

His absence would be a huge loss for the club next season, but there is still a lot of work to be done to ensure European qualification – something that might convince Kane to stay. Villa is the side hoping to spoil that party.

Odds for Tottenham Hotspur vs. Aston Villa

Tottenham Hotspur to Win-185
The Draw+365
Aston Villa to Win+485

Villa will finish in a comfortable mid-table position this season, but Spurs need a few more points to be sure of European soccer next season.

That’s why BetOnline has made the London club the odds on favorite here – and why the other options are probably not worth taking too much notice of.

Match Preview

After losing to Leeds the week before – and making the last few games a little more nervy – Spurs easily dispatched Wolves at the weekend and gave itself every chance of qualifying for the Europa League. Harry Kane scored the opener, proving how much this team relies on the goals of the England captain.

He will definitely be missed if he leaves the club, although it would surely be for a lot of money invested in a few handy replacements. Tottenham is still to choose a permanent manager, of course – and continental competition will attract a better prospect for that role and new players.

Aston Villa shouldn’t stop Spurs from staying in the race for the Europa League. Still, it might have Jack Grealish starting a game for the first time in months after he played just under half an hour of the defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend. His creative play certainly adds another dimension to Villa’s attack.

Matty Cash will miss the remaining two games of the season with an injury, but Dean Smith should have most of his first-choice eleven available.

He will know that even though it feels as though the season is fizzling out unspectacularly, it should be considered a success for the club. It might not be a top-half finish, but it is a definite improvement on last year.

Spurs vs. Aston Villa Betting Pick

Pick
  • Tottenham Hotspur to Win
    -185

It is highly unlikely that Spurs will qualify for the Champions League – even with two wins in the final games – and that is why Harry Kane might be on his way in the summer.

Still, he will be a big reason why Tottenham does pick up points against Villa on Wednesday and then Leicester at the weekend.
