Our betting partners Sportingbet take a look at the markets available for Sunday's derby against Arsenal at the Lane...

There is no bigger contest for Tottenham Hotspur than the visit of Arsenal and after going unbeaten against the neighbours in the past two seasons, Spurs are finally priced up as favourites to keep the bragging rights on Sunday.

Harry Redknapp’s men have recaptured their form in recent weeks with the help of former Gunner Emmanuel Adebayor, while his ex-club’s defensive lapses have continued to make headlines despite three straight wins.

We make the hosts 11/10 favourites to inflict a fourth defeat of the season on Arsenal, with the draw deemed a 12/5 shot. At 5/2, an Arsenal victory would be considered something of a shock result – as would anything less than a goal frenzy at White Hart Lane.

The visitors have conceded no less than 12 goals in their last two away days so with Adebayor, Modric and Bale on song, will the Lilywhites be too hot for their red rivals to handle? Three or more goals comes in at 33/20 and there’s 4/1 offered for Over 4.5, which paid out when the sides produced a 3-3 draw in their last meeting.

Spurs to notch Over 1.5 goals themselves is odds on at 5/6, while Rafael Van der Vaart is 17/10 to be among the scorers, Bale is 8/1 for the opener and Adebayor to notch first in a 3-2 win turns a £5 stake into £505!
