The two clubs lock horns as they enjoy very different fortunes at this stage, but Betfair have their £1 max stake offer befitting of such a close game

Torn on who you can back substantially for the north London derby without sustaining too much loss if your pick does not work out? Betfair could have the answer with their new customer offers with £1 max stake.

Tottenham and Arsenal are set to do battle again with much more than local bragging rights at stake, with the result possibly having far-ranging implications on where their season is headed. Both teams can be expected to go all out for a result, with results capable of swinging either way leaving punters at a loss on who to back.

The solution could certainly lie with Betfair, who are offering new customers the chance to back either team with massively boosted odds of 30/1 (31.0) for a Tottenham win or 50/1 (51.0) for an Arsenal win. With a £1 max stake, the sportsbook ensure maximum winnings but next to zero losses. The last time either of Sunday’s two contestants were offered at this price, Arsenal walked away 50/1 (51.0) winners from their FA Cup semi-final victory over Manchester City, rewarding players throwing their bets behind the beleaguered Gunners.

Tottenham 30/1 (31.0) to beat Arsenal

Last evens (2.0), Tottenham have been upped to 30/1 (31.0). Spurs need a win to keep hot on the tails of Chelsea at the top of the table and face one of their biggest hurdles of the remaining games in their title run-in. Mauricio Pochettino is the first Tottenham manager to go his first five North London derbies without a loss.

It is a period that has coincided with opposite number Arsene Wenger enduring a spell of being without a win in five derbies for the first time in the Gunners’ dugout, and Poch will know him extending that run will be key to his men keeping pressure on Chelsea at the top of the Premier League.

Tottenham’s form trio of Christian Eriksen - scorer of the winner last time out against Crystal Palace in what was deemed prior as a probable stumbling block - Dele Alli and Harry Kane will always ensure Tottenham are kept in the running for the title, waiting to pounce any possible - albeit unlikely - Chelsea mistake.

The latter has scored in four consecutive Premier League appearances against Arsenal, netting five goals in the process - no Spurs player has scored more goals versus Arsenal in the Premier League than Kane, who is level on five alongside Gareth Bale. Displaying a new resolve and grit, punters could not be left wishing for a better way to back Tottenham than Betfair’s new customer offer of 30/1 (31.0).

Arsenal 50/1 (51.0) to beat Tottenham

Last 14/5 (3.8), Arsenal have been upped to 50/1 (51.0). Though they recently won consecutive Premier League matches for the first time since January against sides not above mid-table, the Gunners are considered outsiders for this tie and in poor state to stand against a rampaging Tottenham side fighting Chelsea tooth and nail for the title.


However, the last time Arsenal had been required to do the job - in the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City - they did it, leaving anyone who had been backing Betfair’s £1 max stake 50/1 (51.0) offer big winners. The lesson from that encounter is that, though the floundering Gunners are not the most consistent pick, they do have the quality, and mettle, to surprise in important fixtures.

Arsenal have got on the scoresheet in 22 out of their last 23 derbies at White Hart Lane and they will know they will have to breach the Spurs backline twice or more here if they are to record a morale-boosting win for their season run-in - even perhaps raising public opinion of Wenger as well as the squad, with many players fighting for their futures. With that in mind, getting Arsenal at a unmissable 50/1 (51.0) with Betfair is indeed the pick for a bold punter.
