A last-gasp Gareth Bale blockbuster propelled Tottenham into third place on Monday night as they edged out West Ham 3-2 and that result means Andre Villas-Boas’ troops have come in to 8/15 with bet365 to secure a top four finish.
Those odds will certainly shorten further if Spurs can pick up another three points on Sunday because they come up against North London rivals Arsenal, who currently lie four points behind their neighbours in fifth.
Defeat for the Gunners would be a real setback in their bid to qualify for next season’s Champions League and given the form of the hosts, it could be a long afternoon for Arsene Wenger’s men, who are Stan James’ 11/5 outsiders ahead of the crucial showdown.
Inspired by Bale, Tottenham have lost just once in 15 matches across all competitions, so they look too big at 13/10 via bet365 to tighten their grip on a top four berth in a potentially entertaining affair at White Hart Lane, where the same firm quote 4/7 for both teams to find the net and Ladbrokes offer 10/3 about a home win by one.
It’s a fixture that has tended to produce plenty of goals in recent years and a tally of three or more looks a banker at 7/10 (BetVictor) in this one while bet365 quote odds of 21/10 for Spurs to prevail in a match featuring at least three goals.
Bale of course, with six in four in the Premier League, will be the punters’ choice at 5/1 via Stan James to notch the first of those goals and it’s 19/2 courtesy of BetVictor for Spurs to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline.
