Premier League Golden Boot latest odds, news and free bets

Luis Suarez’s goal at Stamford Bridge means he is now joint-top of the Premier League scoring charts with Robin van Persie and the bookmakers have cut the Uruguayan to win the Golden Boot

Suarez clearly means business this season after a difficult first full campaign at Anfield and he is the focal point of every Liverpool attack, with the striker having scored in the past three matches for the Reds and he now has eight goals to his name in the league.

The Liverpool forward is now a best price 6/1 (BetVictor free bets) to top the scoring charts and the bookies expect it to be a straight shoot-out between him and RVP, with the Manchester United player actually failing to get on the scoresheet at Villa Park despite his team scoring three.

Van Persie has been on fire since signing at Old Trafford and the bookies are wary of taking on the Dutchman who finished top of the scoring charts last season and Coral go a best price 9/5 about the forward repeating this feat.

Demba Ba is one goal behind on seven although he’s found the net just once in the last five games and the Senegal striker’s odds have been drifting accordingly, with odds of 18/1 now available about a player that scored a lot of goals early last season before Papiss Cisse started hogging the limelight.

There are three players on six goals, although neither Marouane Fellaini, Edin Dzeko or Michu are expected to challenge for the Golden Boot this season, with the Belgian a 125/1 chance to finish top of the scoring charts. There is of course a possibility that the Everton player could be seeking a move come January.

Dzeko is a 66/1 chance and many of his goals have been scored when the Bosnian has come off the bench although Roberto Mancini surely needs to give the player more game time for him to stand any chance of troubling the top scorers.

Dimitar Berbatov was joint-top Premier League scorer a couple of seasons ago for Manchester United despite limited chances and the Bulgarian is now a first-team regular following that summer move to Fulham although the bookies are happy to make his odds 40/1 to win the Golden Boot this time around.

Similarly, the layers aren’t yet prepared to start running scared of Nikica Jelavic despite the Everton forward managing five goals to date and his odds are now 20/1 (Sky Bet).
