We end this weekend’s Premier League games with a cracking North London Derby as old rivals Arsenal and Tottenham lock horns.


The Gunners are flying high at the top of the table with 44 points, and they know a win here will be massive. In contrast, Spurs are unlikely to be challenging for the title with 33 points and 11 back from Arsenal, but they are very much in the race for a top four slot.


The match betting favours Arsenal at 2.20 despite being the away side, with the draw 3.60 and Spurs on offer at 3.10.

They’ve already faced-off this season and that ended in a 3-1 win at the Emirates for Arsenal, but the good news for Spurs fans is that they took this repeat fixture last season 3-0 and that can be backed again here at 41.00.

There’s more good news for Tottenham supporters as they’ve actually got a cracking home record against Arsenal – they have lost only 1 of their last 14 (league) vs the Gunners and are unbeaten in their last 8 at home when playing them – while overall (home/away) in recent matchups with their rivals they are unbeaten in 6 of their last 9.

This clash has also produced a fair amount of draws – 6 of the last 19, while four have ended 1-1. You can back 1-1 at 7.50. Other betting options for punters, when looking at the stats, are that both teams have scored in 6 of the last 8 head-to-heads – this is on offer at 1.66, while 6 of the last 7 went OVER 2.5 GOALS – you can back this option at 1.80.

So, there’s a look to like regarding the stats if you are a Spurs fan and with their man striker – Harry Kane – also having a top record when playing Arsenal then that’s a further plus. The England man has netted 14 goals in his last 16 league games against the Gunners (including this season) and is sure to be popular, as always, in the scoring markets at 5.00 (1st) or 2.40 (anytime).

The final thing to note is that there’s been 5 red cards in the last 9 league head-to-heads, including this season when Spurs’ Emerson got his marching orders. Overall, it’s a game that Arsenal will be loving to win. Spurs will also need 3 points in their race for a top four finish so a lot of people may feel they will cancel each other out and a draw is the best bet. But, in a tricky game to call with Arsenal in red-hot form, but Spurs having a goof home record vs the Gunners, then the ‘double chance’ option on Spurs/Draw at 1.66 looks fair value. Yes, odds on, but this bet has paid out in 93% of their last 14 matchups.
