Tottenham v Arsenal tips – double money by backing Spurs

We’ve got ourselves a tasty north London derby on Sunday afternoon, with Tottenham bidding to stay top of the Premier League table by overcoming arch-rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

As you might expect, Spurs are favourites to win the clash although some punters might be attracted to the even money quotes that are currently flying around, with Jose Mourinho’s side looking in much better nick than their opponents right now.

Are Spurs a Good Bet at Evens to Win Derby?

Tottenham Hotspur have twenty-one points on the board from ten games played and this average of 2.1 points per match could surely see them challenge hard for this season’s Premier League title, with Mourinho’s men recently beating Manchester City at White Hart Lane.

On that occasion, Spurs ceded a lot of possession to Pep Guardiola’s side before stinging them on the break, although this match might be a little difference considering that Arsenal won’t necessarily be roving forward in numbers for a clash that they can ill-afford to lose.

Tottenham’s price implies that they have a 50% chance of winning the game, although they do currently boast a 60% win rate in the top flight this season although that is tempered by the fact that Spurs have only won two of their five games at White Hart Lane this term.

Arsenal the Betting Outsiders for Clash Against Spurs

There will have been a target at the beginning of the season for number of points accrued at this stage and it’s likely that Arsenal will have wanted significantly more than thirteen points from ten matches played. Nobody is talking about the Gunners challenging for a top four spot anymore.

Indeed, since winning at Fulham and then defeating West Ham, the visitors have won just two of their eight remaining matches in the top flight and they’ve achieved a return of seven points from those games, with Mikel Arteta unable to stop the rot at this moment in time.

It was no real surprise to see Arsenal defeated at home to Wolves in their most recent match and that 1-0 victory away to Manchester United is looking increasingly like the freak result of the season considering that there were poor performances and results either side of that game.

What Are the Best Bets For Tottenham v Arsenal?

Some punters might want to keep the betting for this north London derby really simple and opt for a Tottenham win at even money. We personally think they have a greater than 50% chance of winning the game and if you have the same opinion, then you are essentially securing a value price about a table-topping side.

If you’re getting with Spurs but want a better value price than the Full-Time Result market, there are a few possibilities to consider. For example, you can get 5/2 about Tottenham winning to nil and their defence looked pretty strong against Chelsea in the last game, especially considering Toby Alderweireld was missing.

Joe Rodon has earned the trust of Mourinho and sits alongside Eric Dier, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang firing blanks for much of the season and the Gabon forward is looking out of sorts for a team who appear to be missing Thomas Partey, with the tough-tackling midfielder out injured and unlikely to be available.

We’re pretty sure that Arsenal will be trying to secure a point from this match at the very least and we could therefore see them adopt a defensive approach to the game, with odds of 11/4 available that this clash ends all square and we wouldn’t put anyone off betting on No Goalscorer at 10/1.

However, we can’t help but feel that Under 2.5 Goals is probably the safest call of all, with 10/11 available that we see two goals or less and we think that Spurs’ earlier goals haul is having an impact on the prices.
