The new Premier League season is getting ever closer and punters all over the world are making their picks in a mind-boggling variety of betting markets. One of the most popular is the Premier League Top Goalscorer market. The Premier League is home to some of the world’s most prolific strikers, so as you would expect, competition for this prize is fierce.
So who do you fancy for the title this season? And which bookmaker will you use? If you’re thinking of betting in the Premier League Top Goalscorer market, you should certainly check out the Paddy Power site. This Irish company is one of the most well-known in sports betting, thanks to their eye-catching marketing campaigns, which are usually entertaining, and occasionally controversial. Their unconventional style and the accent they place on fun has helped them to become one of the most popular bookmakers for football punters, and their market on the Top Premier League Goalscorer for 2016-17 looks pretty competitive.
Top of the tree is last year’s winner Harry Kane. The Tottenham star was Top Scorer in 2015 as well, and finished second in 2016, so his pedigree is undisputed. At odds of 3/1 with Paddy Power, he may not appeal to punters who like to dabble at bigger odds, but it’s hard to argue with his position in the market, given that he takes penalties and free kicks for Tottenham and is rarely rested for Premier League games.
Kane’s price looks even better when you consider the doubts hanging over his main market rivals. Romelu Lukaku is second favourite at 4/1 with Paddy Power, and has been popular with punters all summer, but Manchester United’s system is not built around a single prolific goal-scorer and he could struggle to outscore Kane. Sergio Aguero (5/1) and Gabriel Jesus (7/1) are likely to share striking duties at Manchester City, while the uncertainty over the Premier League future of Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez (10/1) and Chelsea’s Diego Costa (6/1) make them risky betting propositions.
For those who like to dabble at bigger odds, you might consider Liverpool star Sadio Mane, their top scorer in 2016-17, who won’t be missing on AFCON duty this season, and could help propel the Reds to a Premier League title challenge. He’s available at 20/1 with Paddy Power and at even bigger odds you could take a chance on Chelsea’s star creative player Eden Hazard, who can be backed at 33/1, as can Jermain Defoe, who managed to score 15 goals for relegated Sunderland last season and is now part of a settled Bournemouth side.
One of the advantages of betting on the Premier League Top Goalscorer with Paddy Power is that they offer Cash Out on all bets in this market. Cash Out is a useful facility that enables you to lock in a profit before the event in question has ended. If your selection has had a great start to the season and is leading the way at the top of the goalscorer market in January but you think he might run out of steam, then by using Paddy Power’s Cash Out option, you can take your profit there and then, avoiding a nail-biting conclusion to the season!
Paddy Power also have a well-earned reputation as a welcoming bookmaker for new customers, regularly offering tempting bonuses and offers, and punters interested in getting involved in the Premier League top scorer market with Paddy Power can take advantage of an excellent Free £30 Bet offer.
