The Gunners and Spurs go head to head for all the glory, bragging right and most important: the three points. Who should we add to our soccer picks for the weekend?

Odds Overview
The soccer betting odds favor Arsenal in this situation, in spite of the fact it's Spurs that will be playing in front of their faithful supporters inside White Hart Lane. As of now the Gunners are listed in the +125 to +135 range to win outright, which means the Spurs are roughly +225 odds-on underdogs at home.

Based on the available odds, it's clear that oddsmakers are liking Arsenal's form right now.

 

Tottenham
Spurs have been in pretty good form, having compiled three wins, one draw and one loss over their last five matches. They most recently had little trouble overcoming West Brom 3-0 despite being away from White Hart Lane. 

In the win over the Baggies, which gave Tottenham a much needed three points in the Premier League race, Harry Kane scored twice to continue his fantastic campaign, and midfield maestro Christian Eriksen got his name on the scoresheet too. Tottenham is currently in sixth place in the league but just three points behind third-place Manchester United. It's a heated race in England's top-flight league, and Tottenham is very much in the mix.

We have to focus in on Kane though, because he's been brilliant for the club this season. He leads the team with 10 goals this season, with Eriksen just behind with nine. Nacer Chadli has been the other reliable goalscorer, having scored seven times, and that's made up for poor seasons from Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado. Eriksen in particular has been doing a little of everything for Spurs in this campaign.

Arsenal
Since losing to Southampton in the league, the Gunners have gone on a great run which has seen them win five consecutive matches across all competitions. The highlight there came in a 2-0 away win over Manchester City, which was an incredibly impressive result no matter what you may think of Arsenal.

Current form has been incredible for Arsene Wenger's club, so you can see why the soccer betting odds are what they are for Saturday's marquee encounter in London. White Hart Lane is going to be rocking here though, so the Gunners are going to need to really focus in order to get a positive result out of this match.

Most recently, Arsenal thumped Aston Villa 5-0 at home, so spirits are very high for the Gunners and they'll be fancying their chances. Spurs have been very vulnerable at times this season, and Arsenal recently got some big names back like Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott. Those are two huge boosts for the already talented Gunners.

Premier League Pick
As if these teams didn't hate each other enough, only two points separate Arsenal and Tottenham in the Premier League.

This one means a lot, so both outfits are going to be giving it everything they have, as the result could have a big impact on the overall look of the top of the table.

Where's the best value with our soccer picks though? We think the Gunners will be able to brush aside the visiting Spurs, and we actually think they'll do it in comfortable fashion. They're going to be away from home, but they're the better team now that they're healthy again and we look for them to show it. In what should be an entertaining match, roll with an in-form Arsenal to win and therefore give backers a nice profit in return.

If you're feeling frisky, you could even consider taking the Gunners to win by two or more goals, which would offer an even bigger return. It all depends on how confident you are.
