SlipsTips takes a look at the Bet Builder market ahead of Arsenal's Super Sunday showdown with Tottenham.
Arsenal vs Tottenham (Sunday, 16:30)
Tottenham have won three successive Premier League matches for the first time since November and they will be looking to make it four wins on the spin when they face fierce rivals Arsenal on Sunday.
I've already penned a separate match preview for this north London showdown which can be found here, but I've since constructed another Bet Builder that makes appeal.
If we combine over zero Tottenham goals, over one Arsenal corner and each team to receive a card we will be presented with a backable 4/5 (Bet 365) shot.
After a turbulent start to 2021, Tottenham are back in the mix for a top-four berth and I fancy Jose Mourinho's free-scoring side to get on the scoresheet on Sunday.
Spurs' resurgence has coincided with the rejuvenation of Gareth Bale, with the Welsh wizard and Harry Kane scoring seven goals between them across Tottenham's last three top-flight outings.
Such attacking prowess does not bode well for an Arsenal backline that are without a clean sheet in their last six league matches, not to mention the Gunners rearguard have recorded just 3 shutouts in 13 Premier League assignments at the Emirates this season.
As such, I'll happily back in-form Spurs to strike on Sunday, but in order to boost up the price, I'll also back Arsenal to hit over one corner during this contest.
Arsenal are averaging 5.22 corners per game this season and Mikel Arteta's men should see plenty of possession here against a Tottenham team that will look to pick their bitter rivals off on the break.
Sparks usually fly when these two London rivals lock horns so I'll complete the Bet Builder by backing each team to receive over zero cards during this dust -up – 25 cards have been flashed across the last six meetings.
It's also worth noting that the above-mentioned Bet Builder has banked in each of the last two north London derbies – both of which were played behind closed doors – and that adds to the appeal of supporting the same formula on Sunday.
- Over 0 Tottenham Goals, Over 1 Arsenal Corner, Over 0 Arsenal Cards & Over 0 Tottenham Cards – Bet Builder – 4/5 (Bet 365)
