After a week off due to national team fixtures the English Premier League returns to action, and what a better way to do start matchday 9 than with the North London Derby. Arsenal host Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium (1/10 at 12.30 BST), and the two teams are looking to carry onto their magnificent form. Bookmakers seem to give Gunners a slight advantage according to odds, while Spurs are looking for their first away win against their classic rivals since 2010 (ARS 21/20 - Draw 51/20 - TOT 12/5 @888sport).
A pacey game is expected from both clubs, something that is depicted in the latest goalscoring odds, too (Over 2,5 8/11 - Under 2,5 11/10 @Bet365), while both teams are also expected to fancy their chances of scoring at least once (BTTS Yes 8/13 - No 13/10 @Betfair). Always check the odds as they can always come through fluctuation.
In a highly anticipated clash like this, sportsbooks always cater to fans with hundreds of specials and combo bets. For example, punters can wager on Tottenham to have 2 or more cards in each half (6/1 @Betfair) or Arsenal to score a penalty (4/1 @Bet365).

Even though 888 started as a casino and poker site, in 2008, the sportsbook came into the light. Since then, the offering has been steadily improving. It has moved its business to Gibraltar and has become one of the most established brands. It has a clear white market strategy and focuses a lot on localization. It currently holds local licenses in countries with strict betting regulations, like Italy and Spain. In addition, it recently expanded to the US market with the launch of the SI sportsbook. The horse and greyhound sections are excellent, and you can utilize several features while betting. Nonetheless, there are some aspects I would like to see some enhancements. The site recently switched from the Kambi to an in-house built platform and faces the same problems as any new platform does. The number of markets offered, even for the top football events, has dropped considerably, especially compared to the competition. Also, there have been several instances where the Cash Out feature has been suspended for a long period. Finally, the withdrawal times are rather slow. Overall, 888sport is a site worth trusting and following.
