Odds on Arsenal to beat Tottenham 2018-12-0228th November 2018 / lee
The first North London derby of the season will light up Sunday when the two old rivals meet at the Emirates. This derby encounter between Arsenal and Spurs brings about two sides carrying some great form with them at the moment. The Gunners have strung together a long unbeaten streak of form in the top flight and have every reason to be full of confidence.
But Spurs meanwhile will show up carrying the best away form of all sides in the top flight this term. The odds on Arsenal to beat Tottenham are 6/4* (Betting Odds were taken on November 28th, 2018 at 6:40 p.m.). Can the Gunners be the first to inflict and away loss on the Lilywhites?

The North London derby is always a great feature of the Premier League calendar and this meeting on the weekend could see Arsenal land a big statement. The Gunners go into the game three points behind Spurs, so a win would be quite significant for Arsenal. It would also be the culmination and big reward of a great run of form from them which has seen them go unbeaten in their last eleven league outings.
The other significant marker would be Arsenal would become only the second team this season to inflict an away defeat on Tottenham. So there is plenty of incentive for Unai Emery’s men to come out and push the boat in this one. They are W4 D2 L1 at home this season and recently held out for a 1-1 tie against Liverpool after putting in a fantastic second-half performance in the game. Arsenal would also be aiming to bake it back to back league home wins over their rivals.
Last season’s success
Arsenal collected a 2-0 home win over Spurs last season and they are unwanted in their last seven Premier League home games in the North London derby. So the odds on Arsenal to beat Tottenham at 6/4* (Betting Odds were taken from November 28th, 2018 at 6:40 p.m.) aren’t a bad proposition at all. Arsenal have put together a six-match scoring streak at home in the league and they have scored in each of their last twelve home and away combined.
Manchester City are the only side in the league to have scored more goals than Arsenal this season and with the scoring threats of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette then they are certainly capable of causing problems. It hasn’t all been about the attacking strengths that Arsenal have been developing under their new manager, they have conceded at an average of less than a goal per game at the Emirates as well. Interestingly despite their good form, they have yet to be leading at halftime in a home game.
Spurs trip up away
Spurs were in good form away from home last season and they still went to the home of their rivals and suffered a defeat. The Lilywhites are W7 L1 in eight-way games this season and that is nothing to be sneezed at by any stretch of the imagination. Their one lone defeat happened out at Watford. But the interesting thing overall about their away from this season is that this will be their first test against anyone currently sat inside the top six. From their three home games against current top four sides, they are only W1 L2 this season.
So there are vulnerabilities there for them despite their massive haul of wins away from home this season. They are taking a four-match winning streak into the game as well (home and away combined) but each of their last four wins have been against sides currently in the bottom half of the Premier League table. So there is no evidence of just how well Tottenham are going to handle themselves in these big away games. Last season Spurs won just one of their away games against the other top six (at Chelsea)
