Tottenham v Arsenal Betting Tips, Preview and Predictions
February 07, 2018
With the relentless battle for Champions League places reaching the final straight, this north London derby promises to have all the intensity of famous clashes in past decades.
Tottenham have been beaten just once in their last 12 Premier League outings and will hope to extend their impressive run against bitter rivals Arsenal.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have tasted defeat only once in their last seven league meetings with the Gunners.
Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger’s outfit have lost two of their previous four PL games, recording losses against Bournemouth and Swansea.
Spurs head into the fixture as favourites, with most bookmakers pricing the temporarily Wembley based side at evens.
Kane to bag brace or more
The former Arsenal youth player, now gleefully called one of ‘our own’ by Spurs fans, has an outstanding record against his former side.
Harry Kane: "For a long time my motivation was simply to close my eyes and picture myself scoring against Arsenal in the Premier League. Done that a few times now, and it never gets old." pic.twitter.com/oPmgClQqis— Squawka News (@SquawkaNews) February 6, 2018
Harry Kane has netted six in as many league appearances against the Gunners and relishes the derby – facing a club that released him at the age of eight.
The lethal marksman has scored two or more in a match 11 times in all competitions this season, so back him to do the same on Saturday at 4/1 with Betfair.
Spurs and over 1.5 goals
In four of last the five clashes between the two, there have been exactly two goals in the game.
Combine this with Spurs’ form, and backing them to win and over 1.5 goals at 13/10 with Betfair looks a quality bet.
Pochettino’s men dominated Manchester United and then grabbed a last-minute point away to Liverpool recently. The Lilywhites look in good shape to put in another stellar performance against Arsenal, while the Gunners search for consistency.
