Premier League Golden Boot betting guide 2018/19
Welcome to the 101 Great Goals Premier League Golden Boot betting guide – surely the most fascinating market of all in England’s top flight.
Premier League Golden Boot betting is not an easy market to decipher at all, but we do have the evidence of the last couple of seasons to fall back on…
Last season,Harry Kane’s two-year streak of winning the Premier League Golden Boot was ended by Liverpool’s Egyptian king.
Mo Salah scored an amazing 32 goals which is more then anyone else in a 38 game season but can he retain his accolade this campaign?
If not who will?
We examine the 5 leading contenders to win the Premier League Golden Boot:
Premier League Golden Boot betting favourite: Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
As mentioned, Mohamed Salah scored a ridiculous amount of goals last season, netting 44 times in all competitions with 32 of those coming in the Premier League.
Salah also scored against 17 different Premier League teams, only failing to score against Manchester United and relegated Swansea City.
The big question is can Salah keep this form going?
After his World Cup ended early after a disappointing campaign with Egypt he will be more refreshed than he would have hoped. But this could help him hit the ground running against West Ham on the opening day.
Could Liverpool’s transfer business also help Salah? In particular the long awaited arrival of Naby Keïta. As well as Alisson, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri adding quality throughout the squad.
Keita joins Liverpool from RB Leipzig in a deal that was agreed 12 months ago. And Keita’s creativity and attacking intensity could help Salah score more goals.
Salah faces strong competition, from teammates Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané as well as other players in the league.
It will be fascinating to see if Salah can keep up the form that made him the league’s most feared marksman. After all, no opposition manager can say he wasn’t warned…
Premier League Golden Boot betting second favourite: Harry Kane (Tottenham)
Despite scoring 30 Premier League goals in a single season for the very first time, Harry Kane was pipped to the Premier League Golden Boot for the first time in 3 seasons.
Kane netted 25 and then 29 in winning the award in 2016 and 2017 but, with the competition arguably fiercer than ever he may need to go even better this campaign.
Kane now has 108 Premier League goals which puts him 22nd on the all-time top scorer list and he’s within 25 goals of overtaking legends like Ryan Giggs, Ian Wright and Dwight Yorke. Remember Kane is still only 24 years old.
Spurs haven’t been busy in the transfer window, yet, but if more creative players are added to the squad that can only help Kane’s case.
Nevertheless playing with the likes of Alli and Eriksen means he will get chances and, what works in his favour is he is Spurs’ main source of goals so don’t be surprised if he nets against Newcastle on the opening day.
Could a rare August goal for Harry Kane propel him to the Premier League Golden Boot after securing the World Cup Golden Boot in Russia?
Premier League Golden Boot betting contender: Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City)
Could Gabriel Jesus become the third Manchester City player to win the Golden Boot and follow in the footsteps of Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero?
Since joining in January 2017, Jesus averages better then a goal every other game for The Citizens but will need to cement his place as their first choice striker if he’s going to win this accolade.
The internal competition Jesus faces from Sergio Agüero means that he struggles to get a run of games together and is in and out the side.
Indeed, in the Premier League Golden Boot betting at the start of the season, most bookies have Aguero at much shorter odds than Jesus.
Could this be the season Jesus overtakes Aguero as first choice?
When you play up front with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sané supplying you with chances, you’re going to score lots and lots of goals which will work in his favour.
No Brazilian has ever won the Premier League’s Golden Boot so will that finally change?
Premier League Golden Boot betting 4th favourite: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)
Will Arsenal get their 3rd different Premier League Golden Boot winner after four-time winner Thierry Henry and Robin Van Persie?
After joining in January, Aubameyang scored 10 goals in 13 Premier League games for Arsenal.
Having had the summer off with no World Cup to contend with, Aubameyanh should be fit and raring to get going under Unai Emery in Arsenal’s new era.
Arsenal have been busy in the transfer market with defensive signings.
Goalkeeper Bernd Leno and right back Stephan Lichtsteiner have already joined with centre back Sokratis Papastathopoulos and holding midfielder Lucas Torreira brought in as well.
But what about going forward?
With players like Mesut Özil, Aaron Ramsey, Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan already at the club, Aubameyang is going to get chances and has proven he has the quality to take them.
Premier League Golden Boot betting 5th favourite: Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United)
After scoring 16 in his debut season for Manchester United, Romelu Lukaku has now scored 101 Premier League goals so how many more will he get this season?
Despite only being 25 years-old, Lukaku is Belgium’s top scorer of all time including 4 at this summer’s World Cup and will be looking to carry that fine form into this season.
Lukaku is Manchester United’s main man upfront and when he was injured near the end of the season they really struggled without him which proved just how integral he is.
If midfielders like Pogba, Lingard, Rashford, Sánchez and Mata can find form they could fire Lukaku to become Manchester United’s 6th Golden Boot winner.
Following in the footsteps of Robin Van Persie, Dimitar Berbatov, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Dwight Yorke.
