Robin Van Persie Favorite for Premier League Top Goal Scorer

The most popular Premier League side bet is that placed on the player who might emerge as the top goal scorer and bag the Golden Boot.

The Premier League, which was launched in 1992 – 93, has seen a large number of talented players. The top goal scorer bet will be one of the most competitive bets during the 2012 – 13 season with punters betting heavily on stars such as Wayne Rooney, Didier Drogba, and Robin Van Persie. Betting, though not heavy, is done on Mario Balotelli, Andy Carrol, Luis Suarez, Sergio Aguero, and Frank Lampard.

It was Robin Van Persie who was the top goal scorer last season, having scored 30 goals for The Arsenal. The chances of Van Persie nabbing the Golden Boot once again are quite high.

While Robin Van Persie is quite clearly the favorite, Fernando Torres is looking forward to a much better season. During his first season, Torres scored 24 goals. This season, he has already scored 2 goals in three games, and ever since Didier Drogba left the scene, Torres has been the number one striker for the Blues.

Wayne Rooney had a great chance of emerging as the top goal scorer of the season, but the appearance of Van Persie has lowered his odds of grabbing the Golden Boot. Moreover, he was injured early in the season.

Here are the betting odds—3.75 for Robin Van Persie of Manchester United, 7 for Fernando Torres of Chelsea and Carlos Tevez of Manchester City, 13 for Sergio Aguero of Manchester City, 21 for Wayne Rooney of Manchester United, Nikica Jelavic of Everton, and Miguel Michu of Swanse, 26 for Luis Suarez of Liverpool, Emmanuel Abedayor of Tottenham, and Lukas Podolski of Arsenal, 29 for Papiss Cisse of Newcastle, and 34 for Oliver Giroud of Arsenal and Mario Balotelli of Manchester City.
