It put Spurs momentarily top of the Premier League before Leicester overtook them with their win over Wolves.
But now Coral have priced up Kane at 15-8 to net another 111 more goals and overtake Shearer on 260 in the Premier League.
Coral's Harry Aitkenhead: "Harry Kane is a goalscoring machine and now that 150 is up it will be full steam ahead to Shearer's record.
“He's 15-8 to break it and be the top Premier League marksman.”
Kane’s effort on Sunday took him to seven for the season, one behind the likes of Mohamed Salah, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Jamie Vardy and Son Heung-Min all on eight.
But in the main race it moved him level with Michael Owen on 150 and with touching distance of former Tottenham star Jermain Defoe, on 162.
Premier League top goalscorers
Alan Shearer 260
Wayne Rooney 208
Andrew Cole 187
Sergio Aguero 180
Frank Lampard 177
Thierry Henry 175
Robbie Fowler 163
Jermain Defoe 162
Harry Kane 150
Michael Owen 150
The only other current Premier League player in the top 10 is Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, in fourth on 180.
And Jose Mourinho hailed his super star as much more than a goalscorer.
Mourinho said: "This guy does much more than scoring goals. For example, last five minutes he was playing as a number six and winning balls in front of the defence. Special."
He added: "Harry Kane you have to say has this many goals, this many assists, this number of balls recovered, this number of duels won.
“This number of balls that he saved his team in defensive set-pieces. This is Harry Kane. It's goals plus this and this and this and that."
