This weekend will see fierce rivals Chelsea and Tottenham face off for the third time this month. The recent league cup semi final clash saw Chelsea come out victorious winning both legs and progressing through to the final. Tottenham will head to Stamford Bridge with their sights set on gaining revenge for that defeat and following their miraculous turnaround midweek against Leicester they will head into the game full of confidence. For fans looking to have a bet on this game, this article will take a look at some of the popular betting markets and some advice on how you can enjoy betting on them responsibly.
These two teams have a long-standing rivalry, and the London derby is always a game to look forward to. One of the most infamous match ups came in May 2016 with Tottenham needing to avoid defeat in order to keep their title challenge alive. Tottenham raced into a two nil lead and seemingly looked well on their way to victory approaching half time. The game then turned to chaos following a late challenge by Danny Rose. This led to a brawl which included members of both coaching teams. Tempers continued to boil over in the second half in a match which saw a total of 13 bookings, 9 of those were for Tottenham players. Chelsea scored two goals to snatch victory away from Tottenham and ending their title challenge.
Emotions – Local derbies are always filled with emotions for both fans and players. This can have an impact on the game and is certainly something you should take into consideration before placing a bet. Following their recent league cup semi-final, Tottenham players and fans will certainly be hoping to see a response from their team.
Markets – If you are looking to have a bet on this game, you should consider the type of bet you wish to place. Form in derby games can often go out the window and that can make outright betting on the outcome difficult. Other markets you may wish to consider betting on.
Staking – Betting on games which are heavily impacted by emotions can lead to surprising results. If you are going to bet on this game, you should look at how much you are staking from your budget. Staking a smaller amount on these games will reduce the risk you take and reduce the impact of any surprising results.
It may be the third time they have faced this month, but it is certainly a game to look forward to and one which usually delivers entertainment.
