With just 7 games to go, things are really hotting-up in the race for the Golden Boot (Premier League top scorer). As things stand, just one goal separates 5 players at the head of the field. Here are our 2018/2019 EPL Golden Boot winner betting tips.
Sergio Aguero (18)
With City having to really go for it, in order to hold off Liverpool and reclaim the title, the Argentinian looks likely to get far more game time than Gabriel Jesus. Aguero should get his fair share of goals and could be a mile clear after City’s brace of easy fixtures in game-week 32. However, as things stand, 6/4 does look a bit skinny.
Bet Rating: 2/5
Mohamed Salah (17)
We all know how explosive the Egyptian can be, but Salah’s goal-scoring touch has deserted him in 2019. In front of goal, he’s not really passing the eye-test either and looks short of confidence. With just a single strike, in his last 8 Premier League games, we just can’t have last season’s easy winner at 10/3.
Bet Rating: 2/5
Harry Kane (17)
It’s been a campaign of fits and starts for the Tottenham Hotspur hit-man, but this is the time of year that he usually comes into form. The remaining fixtures do not look great for Spurs though, with tough away trips to both Liverpool and Man City on the horizon. The move back to White Hart Lane is also a concern, as we don’t know what effect this will have on the team. However, 7/2 does look like reasonably good value and we wouldn’t blame anyone for being tempted.
Bet Rating: 3/5
Sadio Mane (17)
The Senegalese has come to Liverpool’s rescue, since the goals began to dry up for Mohamed Salah. Mane has scored 9 goals in his last 9 Premier League matches and while the underlying stats suggest he is unlikely to keep this up, this player is beginning to look world-class. We think he’s the least likely winner, after Salah, but odds of 9/1 still look generous for a player in such a rich vein of form. Worth a small punt, at this price.
Bet Rating: 4/5
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (17)
Aubameyang has registered 31 shots on target, this season, which is the same as Roberto Firmino and just one more than Romelu Lukaku. But the 29 yer-old has missed 19 big chances and that’s 4 more than any other player. Arsenal tend to finish campaigns strongly and have games against Newcastle, Everton, Watford, Crystal Palace, Wolves, Leicester, Brighton and Burnley to lick their lips over. 6/1 screams value on the Gabonese player, who ended up with 25 and 32 goals the last two times he was able to fully participate in campaigns at Dortmund.
Bet Rating: 5/5
