The Spurs will face Arsenal in the North London derby and have to get all three points if they want to stay in the title race. Tottenham are enjoying a great season and have won seven home games in a row. Arsenal, on the other hand, are struggling away from home as they managed to get only ten points in nine games with 13 goals scored and 17 conceded. The first game in November ended in a 1-1 draw. The odds as well as our betting tip is in favour of the home side.
Spurs look to continue their upward trend at White Hart Lane – favourites in the betting tip
Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino formed a strong team which has a lot of quality and is able to win the league title this season. The Spurs currently sit in second place with 71 points from 32 games and a goal difference of 68:22, seven points behind league leaders Chelsea. They won all of their last seven league games in which they scored 22 goals and allowed only four. Pochettino’s men could find themselves even closer to Chelsea if they win against Arsenal. Tottenham are a strong home side and have almost no injury problems. They are averaging an impressive 2.76 points and boast a goal difference of 43:8 in front of their fans at White Hart Lane. Pochettino can field a full-strength squad and is confident that his side will be highly motivated and can earn all three points in order to shorten the gap to Chelsea to four points. We expect a home victory in the betting tip.
The Gunners have not lived up to their expectations this season – underdogs in the betting tip
Arsenal have lost momentum after a good season start and are struggling with only two wins in their last six league games. The team of coach Arsene Wenger currently sits in 7th place with 57 points from 31 matches, one point behind the Europa League spots. Their chances of qualifying for the Champions League qualification appear slim and probably even winning the FA Cup would not cancel out the disappointment of not making it into the top four. Wenger’s men are lacking form and have won only three of their last nine league games. Moreover, they have also encountered difficulties away from home, having won just seven of their 16 away games, which is an average of 1.50 points per game. While Tottemham top the home table, Arsenal are 6th in the away table with a goal difference of 32:25. Wenger can field a full-strength squad but will be just outsiders against Tottenham as they lost four of their last five games away from home.
Betting tip for Tottenham versus Arsenal
The most important part of the season is upon us, where just small details can decide the relegation battle as well as the title race. Tottenham Hotspur are in great form with seven wins in a row. They are strong at home and win 2.76 points per game on average. They are highly motivated and want to take that momentum into the next game with odds between 1.85 and 2.06.
