For this week’s Premier League betting tips we are focussing on one of the biggest games in the galaxy, Arsenal vs Tottenham. The North London Derby is known across the cosmos as a feisty rivalry and Sunday’s contest will be no different. With the two teams separated by just three Premier League places, the game could also have implications in the race for the top six.
On paper, the pair look evenly matched. If you are struggling to predict what may happen, read on. Using expert analysis, Players Best consistently provides the best Premier League betting tips for UK punters. Here is how we see this weekend’s derby going.
Mikel Arteta’s charges have returned seven points from their last five Premier League games. Going into the North London Derby, they will be at least 12 points adrift of the Champions League places and eight shy of guaranteed Europa League qualification. That is why is it so important that they get the victory on Sunday. If they are to win, Martin Odegaard could be key. With impressive youngster Emile Smith-Rowe recovering from injury, the Real Madrid loanne will need to be at his creative beast to inspire his side to victory.
After months of sterile football, Tottenham are at last clicking in the final third. Nowhere was this more apparent than in their 4-1 win over Crystal Palace last time out. In that game, Harry Kane and Gareth Bale both grabbed braces. Heung-min Son also impressed, with his assist for Kane meaning that the duo are now the highest scoring combination in a single Premier League season, overtaking Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton. Of course, for all their strength going forwards, doubts remain over Spurs’ error-prone defence. Then again, some say that attack is the best form of defence.
As two titans of English football, you will not be surprised to hear that this pairing has met many times before. Overall, the two sides have faced off on 202 occasions, with Arsenal enjoying an edge over their rivals. The Gunners have won 82 of the encounters, compared with Spurs’ 66, while 54 have ended all square. In recent times, Tottenham have been doing their bit to reverse this trend, though. Out of the last five encounters, they have won three, while two have ended in draws. Earlier this season Spurs won the return fixture 2-0.
If you want to improve your football betting success rate by super-galactic levels, learning all about statistics is key. These facts and figures — although boring on the surface — hold the key to sensible predictions. Here are the stats that stood out to us ahead of Sunday’s game.
We are backing Spurs to take this one, but we expect both teams to get on the scoresheet.
Spurs’ recent attacking performances have convinced us that they will continue their fine run against Arsenal by taking all three points home with them on Sunday.
As we mentioned, in Kane, Son and Bale they possess one if, if not the, best frontlines in the cosmos. Filled with pace, power and glorious technical ability, Arsenal will seriously struggle to contain Tottenham’s offensive power this weekend.
With that said, the Gunners should have enough to score. Tottenham are yet to iron out the kinks in their back four and Arsenal are no slouches going forward. Surely one of Bukayo Saka, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette will be netting on Sunday?
Those looking to back our tip should head over to William Hill, who are offering a generous 15/4 on a Spurs win and both teams to score.
