Premier League top scorer odds so far after half a season!

| 22.12.2014

We’re pretty much at the halfway stage in the Premier League, and so far we have certainly seen some stunning goals, as is usual.

Is there anyone near the top of the goalscoring charts that you wouldn’t have expected to be? Coral take a look at a number of the latest scorer odds!

Diego Costa
Hardly surprising that he is odds-on with Coral at 5/6 to take the crown, having arrived at Stamford Bridge with a reputation as one of Europe’s most clinical scorers.

Costa has hit the ground running at Chelsea, though currently is second only to Sergio Aguero on 12 goals, two behind Manchester City’s injured Argentine.

Alexis Sanchez
If it wasn’t for this Chilean, Arsenal would be further down the table. Although he took a few games to acclimatise, Sanchez has since been their best player.

With a total of 14 goals across all competitions for Arsenal, including nine in the Premier League, Sanchez is 10/1 to finish as top scorer.

Charlie Austin
Perhaps a surprise package, the QPR striker is on 11 goals in the English top flight, and is third in the top goalscorer market, priced at 14/1 to finish as the league’s leading marksman.

At this price, Austin could be worth an each way punt, with Coral paying out on two places (tick the small box in the online bet slip, which offers the each-way option at half the odds quoted). Linked with a move away to a bigger club, he could be good value in the each way market.

Wayne Rooney
The Manchester United captain is always good for a goal and, should he find his feet in the latter half of the season, his price of 40/1 could be good value, having netted six already this term.

With the team finally starting to come around to new boss Louis van Gaal’s way of playing, Rooney could have a vital role to play in front of goal.

Olivier Giroud
He is an outsider at 100/1 though could be a decent value each way bet. Giroud has been injured for four months this season, though has hit the ground running with four goals in as many games since his return. On that form it could be hard to argue with these long odds.
