The Premier League continues this weekend with Round 28 soccer action starting from Friday, March 12, to Monday, March 15.

Arsenal vs Tottenham betting picks (Sunday, March 7)
The North London derby is undoubtedly the most exciting game of Round 28. This will be their 168th overall meeting. Arsenal are the absolutely better side in head-to-head duels, winning 66 games so far; Tottenham have celebrated a victory 54 times, and 47 games have ended in a draw so far. Only two of their last 35 meetings, Arsenal have lost at home. Surprisingly, Spurs sit in a better position than the Gunners on the Premier League table, but a win at the Emirates could help Arsenal get closer to their arch-rivals, or if Jose Mourinho's team win, then they would extend their lead over Mikel Arteta's side even more.
In four of Tottenham's last six games in all competition, they have netted four goals. Thus, betting that the game will have Over 3.5 goals could be a sure bet, at +225, a $100 bet could earn the bettor $225 on FanDuel.

For the first time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Utd will have the chance to keep four consecutive league clean sheets. While if West Ham grab a win, they could become the fourth London-based club to triumph at the Old Trafford this term.

FanDuel are favoring Man Utd by a big margin, as they are side is paying out -115, West Ham +340, and a draw is at +250.
