Arsenal vs Spurs betting
The North London Derby returns on Sunday, and it looks set to be another great game as Arsenal and Spurs battle it out at the Emirates. This is a big game for both teams, but a defeat here for Arsenal would see them 13 points adrift of their rivals and perhaps even outside the top 4. Whereas, a win for Spurs would see them keep in touch with the two Manchester clubs going into the final months of the season.
The pressure is really on for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger at the moment, after The Gunners lost their last two games. A 4-0 defeat away to Milan has all but ended their Champions League hopes, and they were also dumped out of the FA Cup away to Sunderland. Despite this, Arsenal are slight favourites going into the clash, and are best priced at 2.5 with Skybet and several other bookmakers. Goals look to be the best bet this Sunday, as the last 3 games between these two have produced a total of 14 goals. Arsenal have been pretty poor at the back as well this season, conceding 35 goals in their 25 league games. So betting on over 2.5 goals at 1.73 from Skybet and both teams to score at 1.62 from Coral is looking a must. William Hill are also offering great odds of 6.0 on Robin Van Persie to open the scoring, which are definitely worth looking at considering his form this season.
Spurs have been flying so far this season, and although winning the title looks just too much for Harry Redknapp, 3rd place in the league looks the very least they will achieve. Tottenham’s short odds of 2.9 at William Hill are testament to their good form this season, and they could definitely come away with a win on Sunday. A correct score of 2-1 Spurs is showing some good value, particularly with odds of 11.0 available from Ladbrokes. Tottenham have only scored 1 more goal than Arsenal this season, but their defence has been much stronger, and have conceded 10 less. Emmanuel Adebayor looks set to face his former club, and so betting on the striker to score at any time could give a decent return with odds of 3.0 available from Coral.
