Can Spurs do the league double over the Red Devils?January 18th, 2013 / Lee A Jackson
Tottenham v Man United Betting Preview
Massive clash at White Hart Lane as part of Super Sunday in Premier League betting this weekend. Big things are at stake as well for two sides which are bang in form. United head into the weekend with a seven point lead at the top of the table still, while Spurs are still fully embroiled in the tight race for a top four finish. Andre Villas-Boas pulled off a great 3-2 win at Old Trafford earlier in the season, a double over the Red Devils would give them tremendous confidence for the second half of the season.

Tottenham v Man United Recommended Bet:
Big match for Spurs to prove themselves in. Their dramatic 3-2 win at Old Trafford makes this a fascinating rematch. Tottenham are on a great run of form as well, as they are unbeaten in their last six Premier League matches, taking wins in four of them. Before the distraction of the Europa League rolls back around, this is a great time for Spurs to meet United again. Their recent home form against the Red Devils isn’t great, but then again, neither was their form at Old Trafford until this season’s upset. Spurs haven’t beaten United at home in any competition since the end of the 2000/01 Premier League season. That is a run of eleven matches without a win over Manchester United. They lost this fixture 3-1 last season too, but have taken three draws from the last five home matches against the Old Trafford crew.
Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Odds, Preview and Predictions
Spurs have lost just one of their last ten in the Premier League and have had some great form at home, winning six, drawing three and losing just two. They haven’t been quite as prolific as other top sides though, as they are averaging just 1.5 goals per game at home, and conceding at a rate of one per game, things are close. Their biggest downfalls have been at the end of matches, having conceded ten goals this season in the last fifteen minutes of matches. They themselves have been a massively strong second half side though, with 72% of all their goals this season coming after the halftime break. Spurs have also scored first in 14 of their 22 matches this season, a very good rate. Jermain Defoe top scores for them with 10 and they have great creativity through the middle to cause the shaky United defence some problems. There could well be goals in this for Spurs. Can their own defence stand up?
Manchester United usually enjoy a good win against Spurs and they will be out for some revenge this time around. With an FA Cup replay in midweek a bit of a distraction, it will be back to a strong starting line up for Sir Alex Ferguson. They came through a good test at home against Liverpool last weekend, looking strong for a good three quarters of the match. The Red Devils are a goal machine, everyone knows about that. Their rate of return on the road has been magnificent,scoring at a rate of 2.36 goals per match. They have conceded their fair share as well though, so they may well need to rely on the strengths of Robin van Persie.
The Dutchman has been firing on all cylinders this term with 17 league goals to his name so far, and of course, from his Arsenal days, is no stranger to punishing Spurs. The Red Devils have been very good at closing out games and in the final 30 minutes of league games this season they have scored 31 goals and conceded just five. United have scored first in half of their matches this term and they head to White Hart Lane on a ten match unbeaten streak (winning nine). This should be a thoroughly entertaining affair on Sunday, and a 2-2 Correct Score is trading well at 14/1 with online bookmaker Paddy Power, with their Money Back Special in place on the match as well (see below).
