Top Premier League Goalscorer Without Haaland Odds: Featuring Kane, Jesus, Salah and Mitrovic
The outrageous goalscoring exploits of Erling Braut Haaland - 15 goals in 10 Premier League games - have seen bookmakers slash his price to a miniscule 1/8 in the top goalscorer odds.
It’s remarkable to think that the Norwegian superstar is now just three goals off equalling the winning tallies (18) from the 1997/98 and 1998/99 seasons, while eight more goals will draw him level with the return of Son Heung-min and Mo Salah (23) from last term.
The Man City striker is now priced at all of 2/9 (Boylesports) to score 35+ Premier League goals, which would comfortably take him past Salah’s 38-game season record of 32 which was set during the 2017/18 season. Haaland is even-money to rocket in 40+, 3/1 to score 45+, and 9/1 to make it to 50 goals! Ridiculous.
With Haaland seemingly storming his way to the Golden Boot in his maiden Premier League campaign, bookmakers have felt a flicker of sympathy to other sharpshooters in the league, which brings our attention to the Top Premier League Goalscorer Without Erling Haaland odds market.
Below, we look at what the odds are saying and the various contenders in the running for what we are going to creatively call the…Silver Boot?
Harry Kane is currently the bookmakers’ favourite at a best-priced 11/10 in the betting without Haaland, while he could be worth a look at 12/1 in the outright market given his superb form.
Haaland’s outrageous numbers have somewhat overshadowed Kane who - out of the spotlight - is actually enjoying a cracking season in front of goal, having registered nine goals in his 11 league games to date. In fact, the Spurs striker has scored in all but three games.
Next up we have three-time winner Mo Salah at 10/1. He’s experienced a difficult start to the season with a return of just three goals from 10 matches and is already six goals behind Kane. However, he’s shown signs of a resurgence following a six-minute hat-trick against Rangers (Champions League) and a fine winner against Man City.
Premier League Top Goalscorers - Correct as of 21/10/2022
15 - Erling Haaland
9 - Harry Kane
8 - Ivan Toney
8 - Aleksandar Mitrovic
6 - Roberto Firmino
6 - Phil Foden
5 - Gabriel Jesus
5 - James Maddison
5 - Wilfried Zaha
5 - Leandro Trossard
Gabriel Jesus (5) and Ivan Toney (8) will both be worth keeping an eye on at 11/1 and 14/1 respectively, however it’s Aleksandar Mitrovic who I like the look of at the bigger price of 16/1 with William Hill.
The Fulham striker has a simply ridiculous goalscoring record over the past year and a bit, belting in an astonishing 51 goals in 54 Championship and Premier League matches, including eight goals in 10 games so far this season; breaching the Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs defences.
If you’re after some big prices then Phil Foden (6), who bagged a hat-trick against Man Utd, is 33/1, alongside Darwin Nunez (3) and Son Heung-min (3). Roberto Firmino (6) is further back at 40/1, while new Man Utd star Antony can be backed at 50/1 after netting three goals in his first five league appearances for the Red Devils.
