He’s emerged from relative obscurity to become one of the hottest properties in World Football and in 2018/19, Harry Kane continues to fire in the goals at club and international level at a prolific rate.
Spurs are an entertaining side who receive live TV Coverage on a regular basis and a number of enhanced odds deals are starting to focus on Kane himself.
Harry Kane started his club career at Spurs but made a number of loan appearances for other sides before he made his full debut at White Hart Lane. Lower league stints with Leyton Orient, Millwall and Leicester City did little to suggest we had a new England striker while injury curtailed a subsequent Premier League spell with Norwich City.
All that was to change at the start of the 2014/15 campaign when Kane forced his way into Tottenham’s league side after some potent displays in European competition. He became a first team regular following a late goal against Aston Villa and from there, he now averages more than a goal every other game for Spurs in the Premier League.
Two Golden Boot trophies were subsequently landed in 2015/16 and 2016/17 and although Kane lost out to Mo Salah in the 2017/18 campaign, he remained in potent form and a pivotal figure in Spurs’ success.
Kane announced himself on the international stage with a goal after just 80 seconds of his full debut against Lithuania. The Tottenham man had come on as a second half substitute and proved that he could carry his club form into the international arena.
His form continued and at one point, he was matching his impressive ratio at White Hart Lane with a goal every other game for England but a disappointing tournament at Euro 2016 pulled that record back slightly. All of that seemed to change as the striker was given the captain’s armband by new manager Gareth Southgate. Kane won the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup with six goals as England reached the semis and following that tournament, his record stood at 19 goals from 30 full internationals. At future tournaments, we should therefore see more enhanced bookies’ offers focusing on the centre forward.
Recent Scoring Record
Harry Kane’s scoring record for Spurs over the recent seasons reads as follows:
|Season||Premier League||Domestic Cups||Europa League|
|2018/19||17 goals in 28 appearances||2 goal in 3 appearances||5 goals in 9 appearances|
|2017/18||30 goals in 37 appearances||4 goal in 4 appearances||7 goals in 7 appearances|
|2016/17||29 goals in 29 appearances||4 goals in 3 appearances||0 goals in 2 appearances|
|2015/16||25 goals in 38 appearances||1 goal in 5 appearances||2 goals in 7 appearances|
|2014/15||21 goals in 34 appearances||3 goals in 9 appearances||7 goals in 9 appearances|
|2013/14||3 goals in 10 appearances||1 goal in 2 appearances||0 goals in 7 appearances|
The stats that we should be focusing on here are the ones in the Premier League from 2014/15 onwards. Kane is often used as a substitute in other domestic competitions but over the last few league campaigns, that is an incredible record. And, it’s a run that he’s seen the bookies start to take an interest.
Typical enhanced odds promos for Harry Kane may take his prices in the anytime scorer market and give it a lift. A good example came at the start of February 2017 when Coral quoted 33/1 – from 6/9 on Kane to score anytime in the home fixture against Middlesbrough.
Another twist on this could come in the multiples markets where a bookie might list Kane to score and Spurs to win. The terms will vary depending on which outlet that you choose but these are good examples of the types of Harry Kane price boosts that you will see in the coming months and years.
If Harry Kane keeps scoring at the same ratio that he has for the last few seasons, Spurs may face a battle to keep him at the club. It’s almost certain that the big clubs in Europe such as Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich will have taken note of his exploits and at some point in the future, the North London side will receive a huge bid for the striker.
In the meantime, Spurs must continue to qualify for the Champions League to keep their player happy. And, while Tottenham keep playing their entertaining brand of football at the highest levels, the TV cameras will follow and the enhanced odds deals on Harry Kane will keep rolling in.
