Premiership top goalscorer betting preview

Premier League 07/08 golden boot betting

Chelsea’s Didier Drogba leads the Premiership golden boot betting at best odds 5/1 with totesport after winning last season’s award with an impressive 20 goals.

Manchester Utd’s Wayne Rooney is second favourite at 11/1 with Paddy Power after netting 14 times for the Champions last season. Rooney’s team mate Ronaldo is also prominent in the betting at best odds 16/1 again with Paddy Power. Ronaldo is likely to be United’s penalty taker again this season, and managed 17 goals last season.

Berbatov of Spurs was named in the Premiership best XI last seaon after scoring 12 goals, and is a 14/1 shot with Blue Square. His team mate Darren Bent is also expected to fair well after scoring 13 goals last season despite playing for Charlton who were relegated. If he can secure a regular starting place in the Spurs team he is likely to have more chances to build on that tally playing for a side challenging for a Champions League place this season, and the 20/1 offered by Coral looks to be a great each way bet at a big price.

Liverpool’s new £26m signing Fernando Torres is best odds 16/1 with totesport, whilst team mate Dirk Kuyt is a standout 40/1 with Paddy Power after scoring 12 goals last season. In the last 4 seasons a player at odds of 100/1 or better has managed to finish in the top 3 of the Golden boot making each way betting very popular in this market. Most bookmakers pay out on a top 4 finish.
