Premier League 2017-18 Golden Boot betting: Harry Kane favourite

Harry Kane is favourite to be the Premier League top goalscorer for a third time in succession in the 2017-18 season – something which has not been achieved since Thierry Henry completed the hat-trick in 2004.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Kane defied the odds to retain the Golden Boot last season, adding 29 goals to the 25 he had bagged in the previous campaign.

The difference, however, was that the England marksman endured a couple of injury absences due to ankle problems which meant he could play only 30 of the 38 matches – the joint lowest number of appearances by a Premier League Golden Boot winner, along with Michael Owen in 1998-99.

What makes Kane’s accomplishment all the more impressive was that while Owen scored a mere 18 goals in those 30 matches, the Spurs man notched 29 – giving him a goals-per-game ratio of 0.97, the highest of any Golden Boot winner in the Premier League era.

With two matches of the 2016-17 campaign to play, Kane could still be backed at 7/2 to be the top goalscorer as he trailed Everton’s Romelu Lukaku by two.

But as Spurs dished out away thrashings to Leicester (6-1) and Hull City (7-1), Kane notched four goals in the first of those matches and a hat-trick in the second to eventually come out on top with four to spare over Lukaku.

The Belgian is second favourite in the Top Goalscorer betting just ahead of Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, who collected the Golden Boot in 2014-15 but has had to settle for second and fourth positions respectively in the two subsequent campaigns.

Aguero, who played in 31 of his club’s 38 Premier League fixtures last season, has a threat to his status as City’s main supplier of goals from exciting Brazilian prospect Gabriel Jesus, who made an excellent impression after moving to England in January.

The transfer market will obviously have an impact on this betting during the summer if players change clubs and besides Lukaku, it will be fascinating to discover what happens with other leading contenders in the Top Goalscorer list such as Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa.
