One of the most popular antepost betting markets is the Premier League top scorer odds. Who will top the charts in 2016-17?. Free Bets
Last season, Harry Kane continued a trend as far as Premier League Golden Boot was concerned. Once again, a player from a “top four” club landed the award, even if Tottenham aren’t traditionally regarded as such.
Indeed, Kane has scored 21 and 25 goals in his past two seasons and could be an each-way bet to nothing at 7/1 (bet365) this season, with the Spurs forward set to continue improving in a young and talented team.
Sergio Aguero heads the betting market as usual, with the Manchester City forward having finished top of the pile two seasons ago before a joint-second spot last time around. Ladbrokes go 7/2 about the Argentine claiming his second award although his injury-prone nature means there’s always a question mark over him.
Perhaps Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a better shout, with the Manchester United forward arriving at Old Trafford with a highly impressive goal record throughout his career.
The Swede is a 10/1 chance with bet365 to be Premier League top scorer, with Jose Mourinho set to utilise him heavily as part of a title tilt. Whether it’s free-kicks, penalties or headers, Zlatan is sure to be amongst it.
Romelu Lukaku is a 14/1 chance with Paddy Power although it remains to be seen whether the Belgian will remain at Everton this summer, with Jamie Vardy having done so well with Leicester last term and the England forward has been chalked up at 16/1 (William Hill).
Michy Batshuayi is a newcomer to the Premier League, although Chelsea’s new forward is an interesting prospect at 20/1 (Sky Bet), while Andre Gray could go well at a far bigger price of 20/1 (Paddy Power).
The Burnley forward top scored in the Championship last term and has the capability to notch plenty of goals for the Clarets this season.
