Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal Premier League Betting Tips 16/01/2022

Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal

The North London derby; one of the biggest grudge matches in English football, so it’s time to take a look with our Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal Premier League Betting Tips 16/01/2022. Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have not been at their best this season, with both teams falling out of the title race early this season. But there is still plenty for both teams to play for. Spurs are improving under Antonio Conte as they push for a top-four finish. Arsenal are also a team on the up after a solid recovery from their poor early season form. Only one point separates the Gunners in fourth and Spurs in sixth position, so either side could make a big statement for a Champions League place with a victory. This derby match will be shown live on Sky Sports at 4:30 p.m on Sunday. 

Team News/Form

Tottenham lost 2-0 to Chelsea on Wednesday as they were eliminated from the EFL Cup. Spurs previously lost 1-0 in the first leg, and they came back from a goal down to beat Morecambe in the FA Cup on Sunday. Arsenal lost 1-0 against Nottingham Forest on Sunday as they were knocked out of the FA Cup. The Gunners have lost their last two in all competitions following a 2-1 home defeat against Man City, who netted the winner in the dying moments. 

Tottenham’s Eric Dier and Steven Bergwijn should be in contention after recent injuries. Cristian Romero (thigh) and Son Heung-Min (knock) are doubtful. Thomas Partey, Mohamed Elneny and Nicolas Pepe are on AFCON and unavailable for Arsenal. Folarin Balogun, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Granit Xhaka are also ruled out with illness.

Match Winner Betting Odds

The match winner odds for Tottenham vs Arsenal have no out-and-out winner, showing that a close contest could be on the cards. Arsenal will be reeling from their loss at Forest and the late defeat against City. The Gunners remain in decent Premier League form, winning four of their last five. However, their only recent away wins came against strugglers Norwich (4-0) and Leeds (5-1). There are decent odds for an Arsenal victory at 19/10, offered by Bet365. A draw seems unlikely in the North London derby. Arsenal has drawn one of their 12 away games this season. Spurs have also drawn once in their 17 home matches. With just two draws in the last 11 meetings between these sides, a draw is unlikely. Betfred will return the best odds at 12/5. Tottenham are in good Premier League form under Antonio Conte. Spurs are unbeaten in eight under the Italian, and they have won four of their last five home matches. As a result, there is good value on backing Tottenham at 13/8, provided by SpreadEx – our tip for this fixture. 

Under/Over Total Goals Betting Market

Arsenal and Tottenham are in decent goal scoring form this season. But the two sides also struggle for clean sheets, which could lead to a high scorer. Bookmakers are providing some value for over 2.5 goals. This is unsurprising as Spurs have seen over 2.5 in seven of their last eight Premier League home games. BetVictor are offering 19/20 for over 2.5 this weekend. However, to get greater value, choosing over 3.5 could pay off in the North London derby. The return fixture ended in a 3-1 for Arsenal, while the Gunners have seen over 3.5 goals in four of their last five away matches. Our pick is Bet Victor’s 13/5 odds for over 3.5 goals in the North London derby. 

Anytime Goalscorer Bet Tips

There are plenty of players for both sides capable of getting on the scoresheet this weekend. With Son potentially out for Spurs, Harry Kane is the next likely choice as an anytime goalscorer. Kane is enduring a tough season, but he has three goals in his last five starts. As a result, there is some decent value in picking Sky Bet’s 7/5 odds. However, there is more value to be found in Arsenal’s ranks. Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe have become the Gunners’ danger men this season, and both youngsters netted in the return fixture. Saka has four goals in his last three, and SBK are offering excellent odds of 43/10 for another goal from the starlet. But, with four in his last six, Smith-Rowe is the better choice and SBK will provide better odds at 22/5. 

Spurs are a different side to the one that lost 3-0 at the Emirates in September, and Conte will demand an improved performance from his side. Arteta will also want improvements from his Arsenal side after a shock FA Cup defeat. Who will take the points in this tense race for fourth place?
