Keepers Brad Friedel and Wojciech Szczesny are likely to see plenty of action in the north London derby tomorrow as Tottenham take on Arsenal.
The Lilywhites are 11/10 favourites to pick up three points in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, with a draw at 47/20 and the Gunners a similar price for the win.
However, before punters consider betting on the result they should look at the number of goals scored market given the fixture’s rich history of throwing up goal-ridden thrillers.
Only twice in the last 15 meetings between the two teams has the game featured fewer than three goals, with notable scorelines during this period including the 4-4 draw at the Emirates in 2008.
As such, betting on there to be at least three goals looks set to pay off at odds of 31/50.
Indeed, the way the two teams have started the season suggests there could well be at least four goals at odds of 3/2.
There have been 41 goals in the 11 league games involving the two sides so far this campaign, which works out at an average of 3.72 each match.
A successful £25 free bet on there being over 3.5 goals on Sunday would return £62.50, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
Tottenham certainly look the most likely to win given their home advantage and recent record in north London derbies.
Spurs have won two of the last three meetings against their nearest rivals, while Arsenal have only won one of the last six clashes.
And with the Gunners’ defence looking vulnerable – they have yet to convince in the league as a unit since their 8-2 defeat to Manchester United earlier in the season – Harry Redknapp will be confident his side can outscore their opponents.
Emmanuel Adebayor will play a key role here, with the former Arsenal striker looking dangerous since his loan switch to White Hart Lane from Manchester City.
Importantly, he has also scored six goals in London derbies.
Admittedly these were all in a red shirt, although the Togo international is priced at 19/20 to repeat the trick in the white of Tottenham.
However, anyone expecting Arsenal to capitulate like they did at Old Trafford should think again – for one thing, Arsene Wenger’s side also have plenty of goals in them and for another, the players know how much the fixture means to the fans and so will be up for the fight.
While Spurs should still have enough to come on top, think 3-2 rather than 5-0, with the former scoreline available at 19/1 with bwin.
