Spurs v Arsenal - betting preview with Marathonbet
04 March 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
If you are a Spurs fan looking for a betting angle going into Saturday’s huge North London Derby, then there’s a trend certainly worth snapping up on Marathonbet.
Spurs’ last four home wins against Arsenal the Premier League have all been by a 2-1 margin including last season, when Harry Kane’s double in the second half secured the victory.
So let’s just go off that stat for a starting point. Spurs to win 2-1 is 83/10 on Marathonbet and a repeat of last season, with Harry Kane to score first in a 2-1 Spurs win is, wait for it, 40/1!
With Kane’s record in local derbies - 13 goals in 17 in the Premier League - it’s worth looking at the goalscoring market and the England striker is 23/5 to score first, the same 23/5 to score last and 71/50 to score at anytime.
Staying with goalscorers, Spurs’ full-backs have come to the fore in recent matches and Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose - matchwinners against Watford and Swansea respectively – are 12/1 and 25/2 to score at anytime against Arsenal.
Defensively, Spurs still have the best record in the Premier League and you can pick up 16/5 for Spurs to win to nil against the Gunners.
Finally, another trend worth looking at – Spurs usually come on strong in the second half of games and it’s 53/50 for the second half to have the most goals – just like against Swansea on Saturday and recent PL wins against City, Watford, Palace and Sunderland.
