2016-17 EPL: Tottenham vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Arsenal Tottenham
The English Premier League will celebrate another derby, as the North London Derby will highlight this weekend’s fixtures. Tottenham Hotspurs host Arsenal with the knowledge that both sides need to win this match. Spurs need to win to stay in touch with leaders Chelsea while the Gunners need a win to stay alive in the top-four race.

Spurs are the biggest rivals for Chelsea
Tottenham have been progressing at rapid pace in the past couple of seasons. It is a testimony to their success that Mauricio Pochettino’s men have outshone Arsenal this season.

Spurs still believe they can win the Premier League but that would require them to continue winning and Chelsea to lose ground. With the run-in slightly difficult for Spurs than for the Blues, Tottenham will have to win this weekend.

Apart from staying in the title hunt, Spurs also have the incentive of putting one across their fierce derby rivals.

Can Wegner clutch on to the tails of top four?
Arsene Wenger has made it a habit to stay in the top four of Premier League. However, this season has been difficult for the Gunners who now are sixth in the table with 60 points from 32 games. That is a whopping 14 points differential from their derby neighbours.

It has been such a season for the Gunners where impressive performances intertwined with dreadful returns. After an embarrassing loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, Arsenal salvaged pride by reaching the FA Cup finals defeating Manchester City.

However, their season will be a complete disaster if they fail to qualify for next year’s Champions League. Their chances look slim but if they lose this weekend then they can kiss goodbye to those hopes too!

Arsenal have an edge over Tottenham ahead of the 167th North London derby. None of the previous three head-to-head meetings offered a winner and Arsenal would be happy with that result. Spurs though, have an impeccable record at White Hart Lane and are in much better shape ahead of this encounter. Odds of $1.85 (bet365) make them favourites to win this match while a draw at $4 (bet365) is a worthy punt.

TIP: Spurs to win – $1.85 at bet365

Both sides have scored in each of the last six encounters and that could be the case once again this weekend. Back that pick at odds of $1.53 (bet365).

Dele Alli and Harry Kane are in cracking form and backing them to score goals is a very interesting punt. Odds on Alli finding the net are $2.50 (Ladbrokes) – which again is a pick worth a thought.

TIP: Dele Alli to score anytime – $2.50 at Ladbrokes
