EPL Top Goalscorers Watch Week 18
Harry Kane Odds Shorten
Despite not scoring a goal in the midweek games, Tottenham’s Harry Kane has seen his odds shorten from +165 to +150 at Bovada. Kane still has 12 goals for the season, although that only tells half of the story. You see, Kane is playing some superb soccer and looks like he could score in every game he plays in. perhaps if it wasn’t for luck, that would be the case.
Kane and his Tottenham teammates travel to runaway league leaders Manchester City this weekend so he will find goal scoring opportunities hard to come by. This is reflected in the betting odds, which price a Kane first goal scorer at +600 and him to score at anytime at +185. I actually like the sound of the second bet because City do often give one or two chances and sometimes leave themselves exposed at the back due to their willingness to commit men forward.
One bet you may want to look at is Mohamed Salah to score for Liverpool because the Reds travel to Bournemouth, a team notorious for conceding more than its fair share of goals. Salah, who is on 13 goals for the season and +400 to be the league’s top scorer, is +300 to score first against Bournemouth and -125 to find the net during the 90-minutes.
Lukaku and Rooney Approaching Double Figures
Both Romelu Lukaku of Manchester United and Wayne Rooney of Everton scored midweek to take their tallies to nine Premier League goals for the campaign. Lukaku needed that goal to restore his shattered confidence and I really think he could hit a hot streak, starting this weekend with the visit to struggling West Bromwich Albion.
I particularly like the scorecast first goalscorer market at Bovada for this match. You can get odds of +2000 on Lukaku to score first and Manchester United to win 2-0. With West Brom’s recent poor form, I can see value in this bet.
Everton play host to Swansea City in a game that is ripe for Rooney to move into double figures for the campaign. Everton have vastly improved since Sam Allardyce took over while Swansea look destined for relegation. I’d probably stay away from the +450 available on Rooney scoring first and instead go for the +160 for him to score before the end of the game because he should excel as the Swans’ defenders begin to tire.
Lastly, look out for Jamie Vardy. Leicester have started to play their productive counterattacking style and this suits Vardy. The 30-year-old may only have one league goal in his previous seven games, but his side take on Crystal Palace who have an awful defence. Vardy is +300 to open the scoring and +110 to score at anytime; I would not deter anyone from placing either bet.
