TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR - ARSENAL
In the North London derby, we have the return of favourite son Robbie Keane and hopefully, the debut of Andrey Arshavin, a player with the ability to take the Premier league by storm.
It is very rare that I ever take two bets in one game, but I have backed four today ! Of course, these two could cancel each other out, but that hardly ever happens when the two big rivals meet, especially at White Hart Lane, where both have scored, in the last twelve meetings
The last six from have been "over", with all producing 4 + goals, at an average of 4.71. I just cannot see this being anything other than another goal fest and Robin Van Persie, who is in great form with six goals in ten starts , looks the most "likely" of the front men at present and is a very nice price to get on the scoresheet. Having said that, Emmanuel Adebayor has scored six in just five games against Spurs.
Tottenham have not kept a clean sheet in nine starts and only three of those games came against teams in the top half of the table. It is terribly hard to see them keeping the Gunners attack, at bay for too long today. At the other end of the pitch, Spurs have scored eleven in their last four home starts and it is no exaggeration, to say that they could have doubled that tally, with a little more poise in front of goal. We have to see goals today, so 0-0 it is then !
6.5 points "over" 2.75 goals 2.16 asian line.
3 points Robin Van Persie to score at anytime 2.70 + general quote.
2 points Arsenal to score three or more goals 5.0 Sky bet.
1 point any "unquoted" correct score Betfair 12.5.
