Paddy Power are offering their customers double odds on winning first goalscorer bets when Arsenal travel to Tottenham if the player scores two or more in the game
A buoyant Tottenham entertain Arsenal in the live game on Sunday afternoon and a win for the home side could signal a changing of the guard in north London supremacy.
Spurs are 13/10 (2.30) favourites with Paddy Power as they continue their quest for a top four finish and sit four points ahead of Arsene Wenger’s side whose indifferent season could derail their Champions League qualification ambitions for the first time in 15 seasons.
Gareth Bale has been outstanding this season and his two-goals in the 3-2 win over West Ham on Monday night have seen his stock rise even higher.
The Wales international has hit the net 15 times in the Premier League and is just four goals behind Manchester United’s Robin van Persie.
Eight goals in his last six games in all competitions has him the 5/1 (6.0) joint-favourite to be Sunday’s first goalscorer or 13/10 (2.30) to score at anytime over the 90 minutes.
With 12 goals in his last 13 starts there’ll be plenty of takers – except around the Emirates Stadium end of the borough.
And Paddy Power will double your odds if your winning first goalscorer pick scores again in this game.
Arsenal fans will point to their two 5-2 victories over Spurs in their last two meetings with Theo Walcott scoring three times.
The England international is 7/1 (8.0) to get the first goalscorer of the game or 2/1 (3.0) to score at anytime over the 90 minutes.
The last five meetings between these sides have produced 28 goals with Olivier Giroud, Santi Cazorla and Lukas Podolski all scoring at the Emirates last November – and that hasn’t happened too often this season.
Over 3.5 goals is 6/4 (2.50) and on recent form that looks a solid bet for a fixture that has produced so many goals of late.
