Football Bet of the Day – Sunday

  • Martin Odegaard to score anytime – 11/5

It has been an excellent week for Arsenal and Martin Odegaard so far. After scoring in his side’s resounding 4-0 victory over PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League on Wednesday, Odegaard had his new long-term contract extension announced on Friday.

Now, the Norwegian superstar gears up for his sixth North London Derby clash against Spurs on Sunday, looking to cap off what has already been an excellent week. Odegaard is Mikel Arteta’s architect in midfield, as well as the Gunners captain. These matches don’t come any bigger, especially when you get to captain one of the two great sides in this famous fixture.

Odegaard has a decent record against Spurs for Arsenal so far in his career. He has won four out of five derbies and has even scored two goals along the way. He is a man for the big occasion at Arsenal, coming up with some big goals, usually from outside the box.

We saw him do it against PSV in midweek, as well as versus Manchester United earlier in the month. Arsenal fans will be hoping they get to see another wonder striker from their skipper and in this match, it’ll mean so much more.

Given how well Spurs have started the campaign with new boss Ange Postecoglou, there is a bigger appetite for this game from neutrals, because both teams are playing impressive attacking styles of football.

Spurs are set to give the Gunners a bigger contest than they have done in past 12 months, and so Odegaard’s individual brilliance will be needed more than ever to ensure the bragging rights remain in N7.
