It's the North London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal and we have free football betting tips.

Even if there was nothing but pride riding on this game it would be a mouthwatering match. As it is there is much more than that at stake.

Spurs are looking to chase down Champions League football. Despite defeat at Stamford Bridge a win would bring them within three points of Arsenal. Fail to win it's back to Thursday nights and the Europa League next season and that's if Spurs manage to hold off Manchester United.

This game could also be crucial for rookie boss Tim Sherwood. Sherwood slammed his players after individual mistakes led to a 4-0 defeat to Chelsea. Will he be able to get a response out of his players? He needs something special if he wants to keep the job next season. A win against Arsenal could be just the ticket.

The Gunners meanwhile are looking keep their title to recover from getting knocked out of the Champions League. Although they are level on points with Liverpool the Gunner's title push is dangerously close to stalling after a one nil defeat to Stoke.

Added to this are the injuries that are weakening both sides. Arsenal are without Ramsey, Walcott, Wilshere, Gibbs and Ozil whilst Nacho Monreal and Bendtner, Kim Kallstrom and Sanogo are all doubtful. Tottenham meanwhile are without Dembele, Dawson, Chiriches, Lamela and Capoue. Plus Spurs have two days less rest than Arsenal since they play on Thursday against Benfica.

With all this in mind the odds are quite open. Arsenal are slight favourites at 11/8 with bet365. A Spurs win is 19/10 and a draw comes in at 23/10 with the same provider.

I've said before that I don't hold Tim Sherwood in high regard as a manager. He is tactically naïve. In the previous FA Cup game against Spurs Wenger got the better of his opponent tactically. I can't see a different result here. Arsenal's midfield of Carzola, Flamini and Oxlaide-Chamberlain should prove too much for a Spurs side missing both Capoue and Dembele. Arsenal will win this match comfortably. Odds of 11/8 are also pretty decent so I'd be looking to back the Gunner's here.     

An even better bet looks to be Arsenal to win to nil. Tottenham have scored only 37 league goals all season and have failed to score in eight matches. On top of this Adebayor looks to be coming out of his purple patch of goalscoring form.

Arsenal meanwhile have a tight defence. They have kept 12 clean sheets. A record which is only beaten by Chelsea and West Ham. Arsenal to win to nil is 3/1 on Bet365.

As a last tip Olivier Giroud scored twice against Everton and twice more against Sunderland fairly recently. Given this and his excellent scoring record in London it wouldn't be shocking if he scored at the weekend. Giroud to score and Arsenal to win is 3/1 at Betfred.
