League 1 top goalscorer betting
The leagues top marksmen are usually from teams who gain promotion so it is no surprise that 4 of last years top 5 marksmen will be plying their trade in the Championship next term. Craig Mackail-Smith ran out as comfortable winner in the race to be the top scorer last season with Brighton’s Glen Murray and Southampton’s Rickie Lambert coming in a respectable 2nd and 3rd
League 1 Golden boot odds
Huddersfield are promotion favourites and last seasons top scorer Jordan Rhodes came in with a comfortable return of 16 goals, he suffered though to Lee Clark’s away formation of 4-5-1 in which Benik Afobe was preferred to lead the line. However he should regain his regular starting place and is good value to lead the scoring charts at 9.0 on SkyBet.
Bradley Wright-Phillips netted 21 times last season and in a Charlton team battling for a return to the Championship could prove to be an extremely prudent investment at odds of 9.0 on William Hill to top the scoring charts for league 1 this season. Relegated Sheffield United’s Ched Evans cost £3 million and in the last season only managed 9 goals in the Championship, however he could find his mark at League 1 and with odds of 21.0 on William Hill he could turn out as a real surprise package in the new term in League 1.
Bournemouth had their two top marksmen Josh McQuoid and Bret Pitman pilfered from them during the last season so it was left down to youngster Danny Ings to provide the firepower. At only 19 he does lack experience but this hunger for success and youthful enthusiasm could see him landing a staring role next season in the Cherries march for promotion so why not drop a few quid on young Ings at odds of 26.0 on William Hill.
Bury’s Ryan Lowe ended last season as league 2’s lead scorer and best player and could be relied upon to take up his chances in League 1 as Bury look to consolidate their place in this new division. Lowe has fantastic odds of 41.0 on SkyBet and could prove to be a big money maker if he continues his good form that began last season.
