Bale can please punters by notching against Welsh side

| 30.03.2012

Gareth Bale’s goalscoring touch has been sharpened up significantly this season, hence his 6/4 price to score at any time against the only Premier League side from his native Wales, Swansea.

The flying winger has tallied up an impressive 11 goals in all competitions this season, including a well-taken strike in his last outing, and he could come good as an 11/2 chance for the first goal at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Ladbrokes customers are being offered the chance to claim a refund on losing first scorer bets if Bale scores too, and this should be enough encouragement to persuade punters to select a first scorer from the wide array of attacking threats in either side.

Jermain Defoe looked dangerous in midweek, and is a 9/2 shot for the opener, but Emmanuel Adebayor seems a more certain starter, and is a good option to break the deadlock at 4/1.

Meanwhile, Gylfi Sigurdsson looks massive at 12/1 for the visitors, considering he has made a blistering start to his Swans career by notching five times in just ten Premier League appearances.
