Arsenal did their hopes of a top-four finish in the Premier League a world of good at the weekend by thrashing Tottenham in a pulsating north London derby.
Gunners fans must have feared the worst when a deflected Louis Saha strike and a penalty by pantomime villain Emmanuel Adebayor following a Gareth Bale dive gave Spurs a 2-0 lead at the Emirates.
However, Bacary Sagna and a sublime Robin van Persie curler brought the scores level just before half-time, with Theo Walcott (2) and Tomas Rosicky adding further goals after the interval to give Arsenal a resounding 5-2 win.
For the vast majority of the season, Spurs were talking up their title chances, but suddenly they find themselves looking over their shoulders at the third-placed Gunners, who are now just seven points behind them.
Arsenal are at 6/5 to secure Champions League football for next season, but their price of 15/4 to end the campaign above their bitter rivals for the 17th successive year looks very tempting.
Punters joining bwin.com receive a free £25 bet and placing this on Arsenal to finish above Spurs would bring a return of £118.75 if the Gunners successfully reel in the men from White Hart Lane.
Spurs are priced up at 3/20 to hold off the challenge of Arsene Wenger’s troops, but those odds could change dramatically after this weekend, which looks to be pivotal for this particular market.
Arsenal face a testing trip to Liverpool and will hope that the Reds have taken their eye off the ball slightly following their Carling Cup triumph, while a Scott Parker-less Spurs welcome Manchester United.
If the gap between the sides is down to four points after those matches, punters who snapped up those 15/4 odds will be looking in good shape to receive a sizeable return on their investment.
