Tottenham hope to keep themselves in the hunt for a Champions League place as they take on struggling Brentford at home in a midweek Premier League match.
Both sides are back into the full swing of things after the slower January fixture list, with Spurs sitting fifth in the league table, five points ahead of West Ham in sixth but three back of Man City, Arsenal, and Aston Villa all in front of them.
It’s a hotly contested race for the Premier League’s European places this season, and Tottenham have very little room for error thanks largely to their slips across November and early December. Yet 13 points out of a possible 18 across their last six have vaulted them back into contention amongst the league’s best.
They welcome Brentford to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with the Bees residing in 14th, six points above the relegation zone. They don’t feel to be in dire straits at the moment, but the margins are razor-thin and any prolonged dry spell in league play could see them sucked into a more precarious position.

Tottenham vs Brentford prediction, odds
- Moneyline lean: Tottenham (-155)
- Score prediction: Tottenham 3-1 Brentford
Brentford have been a defensive mess all year long, without a single Premier League clean sheet since late October when Chelsea faltered in front of goal. They’ve shipped nine goals in their last three league matches, plus three more to Wolves in an extra-time FA Cup defeat two weeks ago.
Tottenham create chances in droves, and should be able to overwhelm the Bees at home, having themselves scored 15 goals in their last six Premier League games.

Tottenham vs Brentford best bet
- Pick: Tottenham over 2.5 goals
- Odds: +160 (DraftKings)
Spurs are getting healthier in the attack, and Ange Postecoglou’s chaos ball never fails to produce copious amounts of chances even with the likes of James Maddison and Heung-Min Son unavailable. Maddison has been missing since November with an ankle injury, but earned 17 minutes off the bench against Man City in the FA Cup defeat midweek.
Postecoglou’s side had generated at least 1.5 expected goals in six straight Premier League games before a 1.31 xG output against Manchester United last league match. Even when Spurs don’t generate a ton of output, they still seem to have good looks on goal, as they scored five combined goals across their two most recent games with lower than 1.5 xG.
Against a Brentford back line which has conceded the fourth-most expected goals this season, only saved by Mark Flekken’s positive performances this year and poor opposition finishing.
Tottenham vs Brentford prop bet
- Pick: Dejan Kulusevski to score or assist a goal
- Odds: +125 (FanDuel)
Even as James Maddison returns to fitness and form, Tottenham are at their best when Dejan Kulusevski gets on the ball in the attacking third. In the recent defeats to Brighton and Man City, Kulusevski had just one shot and one chance created combined — prior to that, across three straight league victories, the Swedish international had six combined shots and 11 key passes.
With Spurs likely to dominate possession and dictate the pace of play, Kulusevski should be a big part of the attacking formula, especially up against attack-minded full-back Keane Lewis-Potter and aggressive centre-back Kristoffer Ajer.
