With the likes of Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez plying their trade in the Premier League this season and plenty more attacking talent on display, this year’s golden boot looks to be as wide open as the title race looks to be and we have free football betting tips.
Robin van Persie is the favourite to be the top scorer at 5/1 with Ladbrokes, Sergio Aguero is 11/2 with bet365 and Daniel Sturridge is 7/1 with Ladbrokes. After that the odds start to spiral to the point where you start wondering if it’s worth putting some money on Carlton Cole at 250/1 (I’m sorry Carlton it’s just not).
To be honest it’s probably going to be a matter of who can stay fit for the longest as to who will win it. Without Suarez, Sturridge could well prosper on his own as he gets to take more of the chances but he will be lacking the creativity of the Uruguayan. As Liverpool’s main striker and the added rigours of Champions League football he might struggle to reproduce last year’s form.
It’ll be interesting to see how Costa and Sanchez adapt to the Premier League, I think Costa will be a better fit given his physical approach to the game, although Sanchez is a very good player. Costa’s hamstrings proved an issue towards the end of the season and could be his downfall this year.
I fancy Edin Dzeko at 16/1 with Betfred, provided City don’t bring in any more strikers this summer. He prospered in the second half of the season, scoring 12 goals since the start of the year, the most in the league. With Negredo injured with a broken foot, Dzeko should be expecting to start, especially if City continue with a 4-4-2. He also managed to stay relatively injury free last season and if he continues that in to this year he has a great chance of being one of the top scorers. He also had a relatively short World Cup so should be well rested for the start of the season.
