Arsenal v Tottenham betting tips: History favours home sides
Arsenal v Tottenham betting tips and odds
Chelsea’s clash with Premier League champions Manchester City may be taking centre stage this weekend but Sunday’s action concludes with a north London derby for which Arsenal are 6/5 favourites.
Both teams were in Carabao Cup action during the week and although the Gunners strolled to a 3-0 win against AFC Wimbledon it took a penalty shoot-out for Tottenham to squeeze into the fourth round after Wolves hit back from two goals down.
The home teams have dominated the derby in recent years so let’s look at the markets in our Arsenal v Tottenham betting tips, or alternatively check out Tim Sherwood’s view on the big match.
Arsenal started the season with three successive defeats but back-to-back 1-0 victories against Norwich and Burnley have lifted them up to 13th in the table, six places and three points behind Spurs.
The home team in north London derbies has avoided defeat in the last seven seasons in the Premier League, five of which ended in score draws which can be backed at 16/5, although a simple share of the spoils is 23/10.
Both managers made full use of their squads during the week, although Harry Kane surprisingly played the whole game at Molineux where he latched on to Dele Alli’s perfect throughball to give Spurs a 2-0 lead.
💬 "The fans are really willing to help. The team and every individual appreciates what they’re doing. Thank you so much and hopefully, we’ll meet here on Sunday again."

Tottenham were ripped apart in the second half by Chelsea last weekend as they crashed to a second successive 3-0 defeat, having lost to Crystal Palace by the same scoreline.
Spurs to lose 3-0 against a London rival for a third time is 20/1, a 1-0 defeat is 13/2 and losing without scoring is 14/5 for our Arsenal v Tottenham betting tips.
All five of Tottenham’s Premier League games have involved at least one team failing to score and we go evens on a sixth although it should be borne in mind that five of the last six meetings have produced goals at both ends.
Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey got another hour under his belt on Wednesday when he was the only player to retain his place from the side that had won at Turf Moor.
Midfielder Tanguy Ndombele was once again in Tottenham’s starting line-up, scoring the opening goal, and he could start on the left of a three-man midfield in a 4-3-3 at the Emirates.
Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura have missed the last two games and face a race against time to be fit, so it seems likely Kane will spearhead the attack with Son Heung-min and Bryan Gil or Giovano Lo Celso in support.
Martin Odegaard scored Arsenal’s equaliser in last season’s 2-1 victory in this fixture and is 9/1 and 7/2 in the two markets, while Emile Smith-Rowe looks an interesting prospect at 9/2 to find the net as he did as a second-half sub on Wednesday.
