Arsenal striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang

William Hill is offering boosted odds of 25/1 on either Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Harry Kane scoring in Sunday’s North London derby at the Emirates Stadium.

Kane is the 11/8 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market after the England captain fired in five goals in his last four games. The Tottenham talisman is now on 26 for the season in all competitions, and he is just one behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot.

Aubameyang is next in the betting at 23/20. The Arsenal captain was on target in the Gunners’ last game, a 1-1 draw with Burnley, and he has 14 goals from 29 games this season. That is not the most impressive of tallies for a player of his talent, and he will hope to roar back to form on the big stage on Sunday.

William Hill is offering boosted odds of 25/1 on either player getting on the score sheet. The offer is limited to mobile players. You have to create an account using the promo code EPAK25, and then you can bet £1 at those enhanced odds. If your bet is successful, you will be given £25 in free bets to play with.

888 Odds Boost

Arsenal are the narrow favourites at 6/4 to win the North London Derby, with Tottenham priced at 19/10 and 23/10 on the draw. The Gunners are currently 10th in the table, three places and seven points below their fierce rivals, but their performance levels have been reasonably strong in recent weeks.

They lost to Tottenham earlier this season, but the bookies think they have enough quality to exact revenge. Spurs were in poor form until manager Jose Mourinho decided to play Kane, Gareth Bale, Son Heung-Min and Lucas Moura as a front four. Since that tactical change, they have been annihilating the opposition on a regular basis.

Spurs have recorded consecutive Premier League wins against Burnley, Fulham and Crystal Palace, while easing past Wolfsberger and Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League.

888 Sport has boosted odds of 12/1 on Arsenal winning the game, or 15/1 on Spurs. You can bet £5 at those enhanced odds, meaning you would win £60 in free bets on Arsenal or £75 in free bets on Tottenham.

Saka and Son to Shine

Son and Bukayo Saka will be key to their teams’ chances of success. Son has 13 goals and nine assists for Tottenham this season, and he is a PFA Player of the Year candidate. Saka has emerged as one of the most talented teenagers in the world, providing a bright spark in an often grim season for Arsenal fans. He has six goals and seven assists this season, and he is overdue a big performance.

Betfair is offering boosted odds on Saka and Son to each have at least one shot on target during Sunday’s game between Arsenal and Tottenham.

Many punters will decide to avoid the outrights and look at the goals markets. Both teams have been on fire in front of goal in recent weeks, but neither side looks convincing in defence, so both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is priced at 23/20. If you think Spurs will get a result, Bet365 has even money on Tottenham draw no bet.
