FOOTBALL BETTING: Live On Sky Sports 1: Wed 20:00
Arsenal’s televised visit to Spurs is the highlight of four Premier League games on Wednesday. Chris Huctheon previews the action
Victory for Arsenal in the North London derby showdown against Spurs will keep them in the hunt for the title and see them leapfrog Manchester United into second place, however, the Gunners will have their work cut out at White Hart Lane, despite the fact that Betfred make them 11/8 favourites to come out on top.
Tottenham crashed out of the FA Cup on Sunday, losing in extra time to Portsmouth and that result will have hurt but what better match to follow it up with than a derby clash on home soil, given that Harry Redknapp’s players will not need picking up and motivation will not be a problem. Add to this, Spurs’ defensive record on their own patch; the best in the top flight, as well as Arsenal’s injury problems and the hosts look huge at 9/4 with bet365.
If that seems too much of a risk, then punters can back Redknapp’s men to avoid defeat at 8/13 (Paddy Power), however, with the stalemate a potential danger, shrewd punters will be tackling Tottenham at 13/10 in William Hill’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
Also at 13/10, this time with Victor Chandler, is an Aston Villa victory against Everton at Villa Park, a result that will boost Villa’s hopes of securing European football, while at the foot of the table, Wigan can capitalise on Portsmouth’s FA Cup hangover by gleaning three valuable points from the pair’s meeting at the DW Stadium; a result 888Sport rate at 8/13.
