2018/19 Top Goalscorer bets

The Football League returns on Friday evening with Derby County kicking off the Championship season away at Reading.

Ahead of the 2018/19 season we have picked a top goalscorer bet in the top four English divisions, placing a single bet on each.

Premier League: Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) – 13/2 with Bet 365

Arsenal forward Pierre Emerick Aubameyang made an electric start to life in England following a January move in 2018.

Despite his team’s struggles, he scored 10 goals in 13 games and will take penalties for the Gunners next term.

His record since a 2013 move to Borussia Dortmund is excellent, scoring 108 goals in just 157 matches!

Harry Kane will return late following England’s World Cup performance and you have to doubt whether Mohammed can reach 30 plus goals again!

Championship: Matej Vydra (Derby County) – 16/1 with Bet 365

Matej Vydra is very much hit and miss!

In a loan spell at Reading and his first campaign with Derby he scored just eight league goals; however was the division’s top scorer in 17-18!

At 16/1 there is value in backing Vydra, because when he is hot, he is very hot!

He may not be at Derby County next season having been linked with a move to Leeds United; however he will definitely be a Championship player.

League One: Brett Pitman (Portsmouth) – 9/1 with Bet 365

Portsmouth forward Brett Pitman is far too good for League One and really should be playing at Championship level.

He captains the side and scored an impressive 24 league goals last season and only Jack Marriott, who has since joined Derby, scored more in the division.

The former Bournemouth forward takes penalties and 9/1 represents decent value.

League Two: Kristian Dennis (Notts County) – 10/1 with Sky Bet

League Two is a bit of guess work; however the former Chesterfield forward is a decent candidate.

Despite his sides relegation last term, Kristian Dennis scored 20 league goals and has joined a much stronger side.

Notts County made the play-offs last term and if they get close again, they will need goals from their new forward.
