888Sport are adding even more excitement to the North London Derby with their enhanced odds offer of 4/1 Arsenal to beat Tottenham, plus up to £88 in free bets.
A glance at the latest match odds in the top-right of this page (mobile users scroll down) will indicate how good this new customer offer is when compared to standard prices on a home win. But if you need convincing, then read on as these stats will help you realise just how generous 888Sport's price boost is.
For starters, the Gunners are unbeaten in 20 Premier League matches at The Emirates and while the form book often goes out of the window in derby games, that has to be seen as a positive by punters considering the offer.
More specific to the fixture in question, Arsenal have won their last four home meetings with rivals Spurs in all competitions, including holding a lead at half time before going on to secure a victory in the last three.
Arsene Wenger's side have won five of the last 6 meetings regardless of venue, with the only defeat in that spell coming at Whitheart Lane and Tottenham have failed to breach Arsenal's defence in the last three matches. In fact the last time they did manage to score past Arsenal, Gareth Bale was still on their books!
Form heading into the game initially looks sketchy for both sides, but when you consider that Arsenal were within moments of beating Premier League champions Man City before putting three past what had been looking a fairly solid Villa defence, they are in good shape going forward. Barring a couple of notable names, Wenger fielded his second string for the mid-week Capital One Cup loss to Southampton, while Mauricio Pochettino needed Tottenham to beat Nottingham Forest to restore some confidence before this clash following Spurs' four-game winless streak.
It's looks likely that Arsenal will extend their run of victories in the North London Derby and if you agree, then now is the time to join 888Sport for enhanced odds 4/1 Arsenal to win + £88 in free bets.
